Sleeping in the light - Did you cry?

Final episode of episode 5, did you cry?

Me, yes, like a baby. Saved the whole of what I thought had been a bit of a dissapointing season. Still find myself thinking about that episode sometimes

Every time I see the sun rise, I think of Sheridan's last words. Glorious image. Very inspiring.

Silly child!!! Of course I cried!! And thats having the ep "disturbed" by commercials . And having to search when the show would actually be on, and which channel? Honest to God, one station here decided to end thier syndication w/ B5 ep And the Rock Cried Out No Hiding Place Fortunately it was picked up by another local station and they backplayed missing episodes. To be an "Original" viewer took stamina!! Also kept getting moved back to accomodate sports events(go Pacers As an Agnostic I thank God everyday for DVD players and the appropriate software!! To really bawl, watch the dvd w/commentary.

Nope, never cried. I just can't get that emotional over a tv show or movie.

Re: Sleeping in the light - Did you cry?

Yes, I cried quite a lot actually. If I watch it at the right time (whatever that is) these days I still can get quite teary over it. And I tend to always find myself unable to breathe everytime I watch the part of Ivanova's voice over at the end when she says, "And it taught us that there could always be new beginnings... even for people like us."

Re: Sleeping in the light - Did you cry?

I didn't physically cry, but that doesn't mean I wasn't moved and impressed by the episode. It's definitely one of the best of the series and probably the best, or at least second best, of season five.

There are *only* three nitpicks I have about the episode: 1) I'm not into the "you are my sun, my moon, my sky" dialogue like most people are; 2) I think the "menace to navigation" excuse is flimsy; and 3) I think the very last moment of the episode was over a few seconds too quickly--the symbolism of that moment with Delenn watching the sun was worth dragging out another beat or two.

A few days before the episode aired, JMS said online that no one should watch the episode alone. I took his advice seriously. I casually mentioned it to a few friends, not sure if they'd want to watch it. They might have each seen a few episodes, but I don't think they were huge fans like I was. So, I was pleasantly surprised when they showed up and watched the episode with me. That meant a lot to me, and did help make that hour feel more memorable.

How this story ended... was quite sad. Since the story was interesting, believable and generally immersive, I had grown to appreciate its characters, and could identify with them. (Therefore, while I suspect I didn't cry when I watched it... I did cry later, when I thought about it.)

Yup.

Absolutely I teared up, during several scenes. Matter of fact, now that I think about it, my eyes were pretty wet through most of it, kinda amazing I didn't miss some of it, due to wetness in my eyes.

Re: Sleeping in the light - Did you cry?

Oh, yes.

Twice to tell you the truth.
And with that feeling of having my heart in my throat.

It was, a least for me, the most beatifull moment of television so far.
A piece of art with music, images and words that I will never forget.
