Re: EpDis: Signs And Portents

Ok, so, "Signs And Portents" is quite a big episode! Me likey!

So, the potatoes of this episode is Mr. Morden going about from ambassador to ambassador asking, "What do you want?" How out of the blue and weird of a thing to ask someone, eh? The various reactions are great.

We also have a rather minor (in terms of reoccurance) story of the Eye. The important stuff of course is that it is stolen by some raiders backed by a Centauri seeking to seize power, but that a mysterious ship pops out of nowhere and blows them up after it's been stolen and it is recovered and returned to Londo via Morden. The beginning of a wonderful relationship!

And of course, we get the prophecy from Lady Ladira of B5 blowing up, which of course does come to happen, just not quite as we expected.

I don't see how any member of this board can choose anything less than a B for this one.

I picked B.

Oh, and I also wanted to say that Lady Ladira is kinda scary.

G'Kar and Londo's responses are magnificent. And we see Kosh fighting Shadows, for once. Wonderful fun.

And how's that for the first appearance of a Shadow ship?

Londo scheming, prophesy fulfilled (he will be killed by shadows) Morden, first sighting of a shadow ship. An A all the way!!!

It's a big episode and definitely gets an A, but it's marred a little for me by the raider captain, possibly the worst bit part performance by any actor in the whole history of B5. Maybe flying 2D space ships squashes your brain..

Re: EpDis: Signs And Portents

the whole kosh/shadow confrontation

'they are not for you'

utterly creepy, and Morden - what a slimeball.

and the Ladys' prophecy - 'The Shadows have come for Lord Kiro, The Shadows have come for us all'

amazing episode.
