Re: EpDis: Acts Of Sacrifice

Take away the "sex scene" and you'd have an A episode.

Classic Londo. Love it.

Even liked the Lumati's take on down-below.

I wonder what Correlilmerzon would have done if the B5 representative were a man.

Or perhaps "superior species" don't have a hang-up about such things.

I actually do too, simply as pure camp. But it is kind of silly.

I agree. The sex scene is stupid, but the rest of it is very good. I say B+.

This is a satire on Hollywood suits. He would have probably preferred a man.

Re: EpDis: Acts Of Sacrifice

When I watch it alone, the sex scene doesn't bother me at all, it's a great hoot. But, when someone walks in the room during that scene, who isn't aware, it can be quite embarrassing. I still give it an A.

The mindset of the Lumati and their classism is perfectly portrayed, Paul Williams translating things with a twist, the way they latched onto B5's idea of "Keeping the inferiors seperated". Susan has another diplomatic assignment and pulls this one off much smoother than the one with the Drazi.

Take away the throwaway Lumati thread and you have an "A" episode.

I HATE the sex scene. It was a perfect opportunity to expose more of Ivanova.
