Re: EpDis: The Parliament Of Dreams

I just don't think shaking a bunch of hands and hearing a list of names and religions and cultures is all that instructive. Yes, we have lots of different beliefs. Might as well just print out a list- same thing.

Not to get into a whole format discussion, but I don't think everything necessarily should be released to Blu-Ray. Only if it has real benefits. Obviously if B5 were to do that it would be great, but it was filmed like 15 yrs ago on a budget for TV.

I currently follow 3 network TV series which I record and watch in HD so when I put on The Gathering my eyes had to adjust from the lower quality.
"Most smart people cannot watch most TV, because it has generally been a condescending medium, explaining everything immediately, offering no ambiguities, and using dialogue that simplifies and mitigates against the idiosyncratic ways in which people in different worlds actually communicate. It eventually requires that characters from different places talk the same way as the viewer. This, of course, sucks." - David Simon
