And yes: I should have a look at the gathering too, even though that part won't make it to the recap. But Lyta touching the Vorlon will be important later...

Thank you! I'll take a look at that episode, but I think that's not enough to make the Mind War-recap even longer (it's the longest of the episode recaps so far @8 Minutes)

No, it was that he'd be dead within 48 hours of recieiving the message:

until it is too late. It pleases
me to know that you will live in
fear, G'Kar. But not for long.

Re: Season 1 recap

@Jan: True, but to kill with the berry is very risky, as the assassin has no way of knowing which berry goes to G'kar. So the only way to ensure that there are no other casualties is to poison every berry, and then administer the antidote to every person attending the ceremony, I don't think that's very practical. Furthermore it's not personal either, and this is clearly a personal matter...

Oh, I agree! I was just quibbling over the 48 hours bit. Sorry I wasn't more clear.

Re: Season 1 recap

Thanks, Looney!

As mentioned: Vimeo sadly has an upload limit of 500mb per week which is just over two episodes. So I'm gonna wait until I have all done and will then get a free month of some paid membership to upload all at once.

But first, I'm off to a week of holiday now, so won't be able to work on the recaps ...

This is great. I love the classic sideways wipe too... Kurosawa would have approved.
