Good stuff! I wouldn't give it an A because I reserve that grade for the heavyhitters like Z'Ha'dum, Severed Dreams, The Long Twilight Struggle, and Sleeping in Light, but it's very good nonetheless!

This is one of the few episodes of B5 where the humour really works. Most of the time I don't get JMS' humour, but I think its really funny. And its a good Vir story. So I give this a strong B.

LOVE this one. Daughter of a war criminal's twisted lack of morality. This one really hits me as I draw parallels with people I've known.

Re: EpDis: Sic Transit Vir

I really liked it, always a romantic, I admit that sometimes I watch it just for the "near-miss" kiss. I also like the way Sheridan takes that guy out in the hallway! *sigh* What a guy...

Vir was just soooo cute in this episode! He bumbled and fumbled around, so insecure but so thrilled with the possibility that this beautiful woman was crazy about him... you could almost feel the butterflies in his stomach! And his love interest, with her sweet smile, gentile demeanor.... and that big, bad knife!!

I thought Claudia was good too, I thought she was believably tortured by dreams of her teeth falling out and showing in C & C naked!

Then there's Londo's bug, wasn't he great in that scene? He was going to get that sucker no matter what and I was just sitting there cheering him on! I hate bugs! I use a long swatter, though; there's no way I'm getting that close!

So far, I've never felt the need to use a sword to go after a bug in my home.

Re: EpDis: Sic Transit Vir

Anyone familiar with The Lady's Not for Burning by Christopher Fry (one of JMS's favorite plays - and mine) will recognize LIndisty as a sort of funhouse mirror reflection of Alizon Elliot - an innocent young girl who is also intended to be the bride in an arranged marriage. I think JMS had fun bouncing his twisted futuristic comedy off characters and situations from Fry's twisted medieval one, to the good of the script.

Regards,

Joe
