Re: EpDis: The Summoning

This is another good one. There's no end to the tension.

That scene with G'Kar in the jester hat, being tortured is extremely disturbing. All the Centauri Prime bits are excellent again ... That whipping scene with the harsh spotlights, and Londo mouthing the word "scream!" at G'Kar .. good stuff.

I agree with Estelyn that the Marcus and Ivanova bits lighten the mood a bit. That "a unicorn?" line is quite amusing, even if Marcus didn't think so. Of course it goes right back to super serious when they discover that massive Vorlon fleet hiding in hyperspace.

I have mentioned before that the Vorlon programming worked really well on me. I still have a hard time thinking of them as "evil", even while looking right at their planet killer. Amazing how that works. Clear evidence of some excellent writing, I would say.

I like the Brakiri's style. Spiffy suits, dark colors, almost a bit gothy-looking. Do Brakiri come in only one variety that happens to look male to us?

It's a fortunate coincidence that Sheridan is such a good orator. Few people would have been able to turn that crowd. I'm kinda with Garibaldi (although he hasn't expressed that yet, here) in that the way Sheridan participates in his own cult of personality here makes me a bit uncomfortable. Also, did he get a haircut on Z'Ha'Dum? His growing hair at the end of the third season sort of irritates me, but I assumed it was like that because with everything going on he didn't have time to get a haircut. It doesn't look so bad in this episode, though

I'm actually the opposite - the Vorlons seem even worse than the Shadows to me (not that I would side with the Shadows either). At least the Shadows seemed to have clear reasoning behind their actions. The Vorlons were very vague in what they wanted, other than obedience (and Sheridan cleverly turns the question back on to them, "what do you want?" and they have no answer) and never tried to explain their point of view to Sheridan. At this point in the series it is clear that Kosh wasn't a typical Vorlon in terms of what he thought was right and wrong. Makes you wonder if he was sent to B5 as an outcast.

Ha ha, yeah I hated his long hair too! He seems to get it cut sometime between this episode and Falling Towards Apotheosis I guess the haircut is a way to imply he's changed in some way.

Re: EpDis: The Summoning

My liking of the Vorlons isn't based on anything rational at all. I can clearly see they're extremely manipulative, and doing all these terrible things. But .. they're so shiny! And they have these really cool ships! Also, I guess I just got so used to thinking of them as allies, in the army of Light, standing against the Darkness. But it wouldn't be Babylon 5 if it was anything as straightforward as that

The hair probably is still long in The Summoning, just that you can't see it so well. But, I am glad he finally gets a haircut. I hadn't thought of it as symbolic, but that makes sense.

Re: EpDis: The Summoning

I've got to admit, reading Estelyn's episodic commentary is starting to put me in the mood to watch through the show again.

Re: EpDis: The Summoning

The biggest problem with my latest rewatch was, oddly enough, the sound quality.

I can't get it loud enough to hear the words without cranking it loud enough to bother the wife/kids. That means it's either headphones, or watching it all alone on another floor of the house. Both of which are rather isolating.

Of course, the obvious answer is that the wife and kids should either learn to love B5 or hit the street, but oddly enough I've become fairly attached to the little buggers so I won't be enforcing that one.

Has anybody else noticed that they have to crank it to unusual levels to understand what's being said or is it just me?
