New To Babylon 5

Hi Folks,

Just thought I would post here to get some opinions on the later seasons of Babylon 5, well after season 1 really as I've never actually watched Babylon 5 before.

It's only been the last week or so that I started watching season 1 (and I've instantly fell in love with the story/characters, fantastic!) and I do remember the name from back in the day but never really got round to it, big sci fi fan and star trek mainly Voyager/DS9 so when it came to finding another sci fi space show I remembered Babylon 5 being in the mix. I'm an 80s child so I was still young when this was on TV back then which is why it sort of drifted off the radar for so long.

So I started watching Babylon 5 Season 1 the other week and I'm about to watch the last episode "Chrysalis" and Michael O'hare has completely grown on me so as you can imagine I'm absolutely gutted when I found out online that he only stayed as the commander for Season 1, and unfortunately left due to mental health issues at that time which is such a shame as I've seen some videos when he was attending fan meet ups at London back in 1995 on youtube and he seems like such a nice guy, very charismatic and full of life type of character but then again JMS did say O'hare said the fans kept him going for a long time, so sad.

Ok so sorry for the long winded effort here but I was looking to get some opinions on the seasons after the 1st, losing a lead/key actor like that must have impacted big time for the fans, I can see some posts with people saying the new lead commander fits in nice but still, I think it's gonna be tough moving past O'hare not being there anymore.

Let me know how you felt moving into the later seasons after Michael O'hare left the show.

Thanks,
Steven
