Re: EpDis: No Compromises

I rate this one as a B-. I know JMS liked to start slowly at the start of seasons to let new viewers catch up and whatnot. However, when I first saw it, I probably would have rated it higher since I was so happy to see new episodes of B5 again.

I have to admit that I was a bit confused at first since my local affiliate never ran the last few episodes of season 4...or if they did, they put them on at midnight or some other such time. So when I first saw Sheridan referred to as President, that was a good "Wha?????!!!" moment for me.

Re: EpDis: No Compromises

Wow! I can't believe our EpDis's are in season 5 already!

BTW, I gave the ep a B. Not bad stuff, but not among the Best of B5.

Re: EpDis: No Compromises

I have to admit...and for those who know me look around for something soft to land on... this episode was just okay for me. It had some wonderful moments, but it just didn't "WOW!" me like the others. I gave it a solid B.

I did like Andreas in this one, very much... as always! I thought he was just excellent. It still amazes me how much emotion and characterization he can push through that heavy make-up without any of it appearing forced or over-animated.

It was touching how dedicated and cute G'kar was about getting that declaration just right, knowing those words would speak for the many worlds represented on Babylon 5.

Hmmmm...what else?.... We also saw the swearing in of President of the Alliance, and we saw Byron. Btw, he may be the reason that I'm not as crazy about this episode.... sorry Byron fans, but I always thought he was a bit of a downer...??

I do remember thinking how sweet that little morning scene was between John and Delenn...complete with kisses, his coffee, her milk, and the "sock" story!

There 's more to share but I'd better give someone else a chance, so I'll stop here....

Andreas was great in just about every G'Kar scene he played in.

G'Kar: So, do you want to be President, or not?

Sheridan: Yes

G'Kar: Fine. Done. Let's eat.

Re: EpDis: No Compromises

I wonder how much of any of jms's own frustration of trying to write poignant speeches for the various characters of the show came out in this episode in G'Kar's ever-revising of the Declaration of Principles.

Especially after all the pain about words in this episode.

Re: EpDis: No Compromises

Average episode really. The cliche of the mute kid speaking just at the right moment. The introduction of Byron (yawn) and Lochley. Her scenes with Garibaldi are pretty good though (their constant arguing, leading up to grudging understanding later in the season, are one of the highlights of season five). Still, I was just grateful to see the fifth season start, after it looked like we weren't going to get any more after season 4.
