Re: EpDis: Z'ha'dum

Alas, poor roy batty. His one and only question went unanswered. I don't have the VHS tape or the answer to his question, but I have a similar mystery in my own life, involving what I think are two different versions of Lost Highway, and a whole lot of confusion on my part. I think I know what he must be going through

But anyway.

This is a REALLY good episode. I just watched this and was actually surprised at how good it was. It's weird how that works. I guess I've seen it so many times I figured I knew I exactly what was going to happen, and it's mostly a bunch of talking, right?

Well, no. There is SO much tension in this. It's really well done.

Only recently have I begun to realize how incredibly disturbing it must be for Sheridan to see his DEAD wife show up out of nowhere. He's been mourning her for years, trying to get over her and then suddenly there she is, looking all familiar, speaking with her familiar voice. Can you imagine?

I'm always kind of taken aback by how angry Sheridan gets at Delenn. Yelling, and some pretty strong language ... his reaction is understandable, but I always feel bad for her in that scene. Mixing your "business" and personal relationships is just not a good idea

The two conversations between Sheridan and Garibaldi .. Ahhh tension. We don't know what it is Sheridan asked Garibaldi to do (well, we didn't the first time we watched, anyway ) but it is clearly something really terrible. The weather conversation feels terribly final.

Z'Ha'Dum stuff: Justin. Wow, that man gesticulates. How did I never notice this before? This whole conversation is so weird. And tense. Did I mention the tension? And then Sheridan shoots at some Shadows and there is a fight we can't see, then there's the dead wife again .. and then he jumps

I feel sad for Ivanova at the end there. Corwin looks a bit unsettled, too. And Delenn of course. Very sad. But at least she's got Lennier there with her ...

Great G'Kar voiceover. Incidentally, there's a lot of G'kar names in this thread

Re: EpDis: Z'ha'dum

This is where I have reached so far in my most recent re-watch, and I must say Z'Ha'Dum is the most epic thing B5 ever did. Those final scenes are amazing – Game of Thrones, BSG, as fantastic as you are, eat your hearts out... I can watch it over and over again and I'm still gobsmacked by it.

In response to Roy Batty, I thought Justin said 'But' too. I'll need to re-watch again now... any excuse... :-)

Re: EpDis: Z'ha'dum

I find it too hard to pick a single favorite episode, but right now I'm pretty convinced that the 3d season is my favorite season, at least. I may change my mind as I go through season 4.

But yes, this is a really REALLY good episode. Unlike with other great episodes, I can't say exactly what it is about this one that makes me like it so much. I'll have to think on it some more ...

Re: EpDis: Z'ha'dum

So a friend of mine is doing a re-watch after MANY years and he just finished Z'HA'DUM, 3.22. He started talking to me about it today and remembering everything that happens. It was so great because he had bits and pieces, but he wasn't remembering the whole correctly. It jogged his memory that Garibaldi was taken and that led to him being altered, but as he remembers it this was specifically to betray Sheridan during the Civil War. I almost spoiled it, but back peddled quite a bit so as to leave it as a surprise when he gets there. Unfortunately I spoiled it enough that he knows what happens to Garibaldi isn't specifically to betray Sheridan. I hate it when I do that. I get so excited to be talking face to face with someone about B5 that I lose control a blurt out everything that pops in my head. At least I didn't give away the main reason Garibaldi was taken.

Re: EpDis: Z'ha'dum

And I feel bad because this friend is only re-watching it so we have more to talk about. Of course that is why he started, but now he is full on into it again. My point is that he is clearly not as devoted as I am (yet), but it has to be tough for him to talk to me. LOL
