Re: EpDis: Soul Hunter

To me, Soul Hunter was the only episode where the acting seemed noticeably flat. On the other hand, the ideas of the Soul Hunter is very interesting. I guess it was ok.

Re: EpDis: Soul Hunter

Am I the only one who thought the Soul Hunter's performance was quite powerful and actually pretty amazing?

Just curious. I think a lot of what was around him was pretty melodramatic, but I really loved his delivery of that part.

Re: EpDis: Soul Hunter

I think the idea of capturing a soul is just stupid. Besides souls don't exist, and no the episode didn't leave it up to you- the things floated around and wanted to take their revenge on the soul hunter.

Re: EpDis: Soul Hunter

Ah! Well, of course souls don't exist. That is, after all, Franklin's opinion. And the Minbari don't know what they are talking about. It's all silly and ridiculous, and therefore makes for horrible fiction.

Hmmm. Maybe I'm being slightly irritable.

Personally I gave it a C.

The Soul Hunter was an amazing character portrayed by an amazing actor.

Most of the episode might have been a bit cheesy (sorry, RW, )
I agree on both points. I've read many complaints about W. Mongan Shepard's performance over the years, but I really liked it. He was one weird-ass dude. The episode was also good for the revelation about the death of Dukat and how the Minbari thwarted the Soul Hunters efforts to capture his soul (left out of "In he Beginning" so as not to confuse newcomers TOO much).

But the end with the flying orbs and Sinclair turning the soul sucker on him was a ghastly pungent stinky cheese.

I dind't mean I thought the Soul Hunter himself was bad, but I found Ivonova and Sinclair kind of flat for the whole first half of the episode.

In the B5 universe, souls DO exist, a "fact" that becomes very important in later episodes.

The existance of souls in the B5 universe is never given a definite "yes they exist." We're given the beliefs from different characters as well as alternate, more mundane explanations, but never a flat-out "yes souls exist."

Hmm...I hadn't quite thought of it that way. So...what does the Soulhunter collect if it isn't...souls.

Re: EpDis: Soul Hunter

Imprints of personality, a person's thoughtpaths copied and recorded, like Franklin suggests could be possible.
