I think people only say things like this in the B5 universe.. Although it's not quite in the same league as Ivanova telling ISN "I need to decide where my heart belongs before the rest of me can follow"

The humor in this episode didn't bother me at all. In fact, I was beginning to enjoy the Gideon/Lochley banter/flirting. IMHO, those two can carry it. Where the dialogue seems to fall flat, to me, is often when Dr. Chambers is talking to Dr. Franklin.

Agreed.

What bothers me is when JMS seems to use way too many words, has the scene go on too long and beats a simple subject to death. For example (Don't remember which episode this was in.):

From memory:

Gideon: "Read my mind."

Matheson: "Sir! I wouldn't!"

Gideon: "Sorry! Sorry. It was just a figure of speech. I didn't mean it to be taken literally."


1. Would Gideon even say such a thing to Matheson? Unlikely. That would be a button-pusher that he'd likely avoid in Matheson's presence.

2. Assuming Gideon was tired and it just came out that way, wouldn't Matheson know it was just a figure of speech? He would. These guys have worked together for awhile, haven't they? At most, it should just have warrented an annoyed look (no words) shot from Matheson to Gideon, to which Gideon would have replied "Sorry, figure of speech."

There, 20 words replaced by 4 and a look. That's the kind of stuff that bothers me, because it drags on and on, and it seems out of place and unnatural.

Re: EpDis: Crusade: Each Night I Dream Of Home

Eh, it was alright.

I agree that there was a bit too much discussion on pushing the button and who was going to do it … that did give Dr. Franklin another opportunity to do his “As a doctor, I … “ speechifying. Such drama!

It IS nice to see Dr. Franklin again, although that thin moustache/goatee thing made me think he might be EVIL Dr. Franklin, like goateed evil Spock.

Well, I guess I’ve now seen all of Crusade …… Time to start over on B5.

Re: EpDis: Crusade: Each Night I Dream Of Home

I've enjoyed reading your reviews of each episode as you've watched them, it's prompted me to watch a lot of episodes again. Have you watched Lost Tales and Legend of the Rangers yet? (On second thoughts, maybe don't bother with that last one!)

Re: EpDis: Crusade: Each Night I Dream Of Home

I have! I only recently watched Legend of the Rangers for the first time. I posted in the thread, here: http://www.b5tv.com/showthread.php?t=9932

I haven't recently re-watched Lost Tales, so I haven't posted in that thread yet. I bought that when it was new. My expectations had been a bit too high. I'm not sure I've ever re-watched it. I think I completely forgot about it in my recent re-watch also

I'm traveling right now and I brought with me the episodes of Crusade I hadn't yet watched as well as The Gathering and some of season 1, but not Lost Tales. It'll have to wait until I get home again
