I have.
True - but his eyes were very widely open.

Looked like they were open no wider than normal to me.

Question on episode:

During Londo's final kiss with Adira, why does he leave his eyes open when he kisses her. Did Peter Jurasik not like the Actress or something?
That's simply how the Centauri kiss!

Re: EpDis: Born To The Purple

I like this episode.

As far as I can remember, it's the only one to feature a grey-eyed Narn, which suggests this is a very rare genetic mutation (unless, perhaps, the Shadows exterminated their kind in the days of G'Quon).

One thing that has long puzzled me:
When Londo and Sinclair go to the nightclub in disguise in search of Adira, how does Londo manage to get his hair to fit under that hood?

I guess he just flattened his hair down some.

Re: EpDis: Born To The Purple

All i can honestly remember is that Adira was mightily stacked.

Re: EpDis: Born To The Purple

I remember this as the first episode of B5 (once I saw it in order from season 1 on) which really entertained me completely. I liked it a lot.

I like the Londo and Adira scenes, but my question is this....

What would this Trakis fellow want from the Centauri? Why was he willing to damage the career of the Centauri Ambassador to Babylon 5? Did he have some personal grudge against the Centauri? Was his homeworld one of the worlds that the Centauri controlled? I never did figure that out.
He wanted to sell it the information, probably the Narn. He says it in the show, I think to Adira. That's also why Londo' concern was for more than just his own ass, and why Sinclair helped him (as well as getting Londo to agree on that treaty)- the info could damage the entire Centauri Republic.

Adira was also Alotta Vagina in Austin Powers. She is a babe, even if bald.

Re: EpDis: Born To The Purple

Really good ep for Susan, by far my fave character. As she showed in MotFL, this is a woman who has gone thru a whole lot of pain, with a lot more coming. She has her heart stomped on 'till it's covored in cracks, but just holds it in and carries on, until we see in TKO that all those unwept tears could turn her to ice. It's not 'till S4 that she takes the blow that breaks her. All in al, Susan is the most astounding character, and I would also strongly recommend avoiding pissing her off at all costs!
