Re: Rewatching. Thus, I'm obligated to make a thread.

1x16
Eyes


Hey, M Night Shaal Mayan is returning. Neat. Slipped in amongst the G-Man's super manly talk about motorcycles 'n stuff.

Baby Lonfan is totally right. They mirrored the image when they zoom into CC during the intro. Intro, Garibaldi's chest badge thingimajigawhatsits is on his right side. Scene immediately after intro, it's on his left side. It makes no sense. Nothing in the scene seems to make any difference when mirrored.

Gentlemen, gentlelasses, you know your duties. Disect this piece of trivia for how it could possibly impact lore. I suspect that it's a result of Vorlon influence stemming from 2148. Prove me wrong.

Suspicious guy is from "Legrange 2"? What a weird name for a place. Wouldn't there be tons of legrange points in every system, anywhere you care about orbiting bodies?

So, looks like we're in for some "lets distrust the main characters" conspiracy crap. I guess it fully fits into the universe and storyline, they're just never exciting.

"Transferring will take 1.4 hours". Goddamnit Garry Baldie, spring for the fancy crystals, not the discount crystals. There's no reasonable excuse for a data transfer that minimal to take that long.

Ivanova's sssssslllllooooooowwwwwwwlllllllyyyyy walking through her mind. I wish I weren't dead inside so I could give a crap about the emotional buildup here of CC hiding her own psychic powers or suspicions thereof.

NotBillyZane is overstepping his authority, Sinclair is quoting regs at him, NBZ isn't pleased, etc.

Sinclair's relieved of command, which seems like a totally rational course of action for vague accusations with no official backing.

yada. yada. ya. da.

Sinclair powers activate, form of: Pompous speech!

It's super effective!

And in the meantime, Will Robinson has finished Garibaldi's bike. This was an unsatisfying B plot. And A plot.

But seriously, why did they mirror the zoom-in shot for the intro?

Why?

You better not be stealing my idea Ubik. It was Looney's idea to start a Patreon to raise money so he could be a part of JMS' Patreon. Not this Usurper!

"She's coming in with her gunports open!"

Alright, I haven't seen the show in a bit, but wouldn't this be "Dealing With Minbari 101"? If you get excited about their gunports being open, they wipe your species off the face of the universe. Seriously, read the memo new guy. This exposition can't be the first time that the Minbari are explaining the very thing that TRIGGERED THE DESTRUCTION OF MANKIND.

I'm pretty sure they're calling this corpse a member of the "Shy Elite". He sounds bashful.

Uh, Doctor Franklin, stop stroking the girl's hair. It's creepy.

"Build a wall, in your mind!" Future politician here.

...

Alright..... At this point my episode got interrupted. I finished watching it and the next one curled up in bed, notelessly.

Thus, I deprive you of my stream of consciousness of those episodes.

...There is a hole in your mind now. You're welcome.

Cramming the guy in the machine episode wasn't bad. Mars rebellion, super fancy tech, compelling stuff.

Tune in next time.

A voice in the Wilderness - Part 2

Fairly standard, new tech = Flex your keegal muscles to express dominance over it plotline. Sinclair thinks we can hug this one out instead.

Garibaldi's assaulting people again. In public. Because they used their words.

"But we don't have a jamming device!" Ivanova isn't exactly the sharpest crayon in the box at this moment.

So, Jinxo left, and now the station's in mortal peril. Damnit Jinxo!

Evacuation's going to take 5 days. We'd better wait a few days to decide whether we should start on that.

"Garibaldi, when we screw this up and everybody dies, save Ivanova while sacrificing yourself, as I assume you have nothing to live for."

Yada yada, touch it and it'll blow, well, guess we'll touch it, yada yada.

"Just like Phallus 12". Londo's had some fun in his younger days.

For slow moving, large, heavy ships, there's a whole lot of missed shots happening.

And the episode resolves. My reduced amount of commentary shouldn't be taken as displeasure. It was enjoyable enough with no major weirdness or anything to trip me up enough to be worth commenting on. I can't really remember where this planet becomes relevant in the future (beyond it involving the one), so I don't have much commentary there either.

Carrying on.

I would laugh at this comment, but I don't think it is a joke.

...That sounds darker if you focus on the not 18+ part instead of the credit card part.


I shouldn't adlib.

Babylon Squared

"That just can't be!" Hey, maybe they should train their cannon fodder to scream out exactly what is about to kill them. It would give the next cannon fodder a better chance.

I'm no militician though, so what do i know?

I am a scientician though, so i know that the second you've got yourself tachyons, you've gor yourself a time traveler infestation. They should get that looked at before somebody travels back in time and saves baby Hitler.

Heh.

B4. Be... four.

In a time travel episode.

Man, people are really fond of repeating their sentences before the time tentacles rip through their orifices. Disclaimer: i just made up time tentacles. They are not based in fact, but have yet to be disproven.

Investigating this time flux is 100% fatal so far, better send in a full squadron instead of just a few Canary-class ships from Fodder Wing.

Delenn is being super weird here. I think she's meeting her drug dealer.

Fasten and zip. If you zip and fasten then it can slightly unzip while you fasten and you're repeating your work. Not even worth considering as an alternative.

Setai Delenn of the Gray Council, counceling it up setailike and grayish. Supreme Leader Delenn, but instead of a dark lord, we would have a dark queeeeen!

...ok, wrong franchise. But she's still not doing it.

Man, those guys are just plowing into that flux. Not even a quick "hey, flight leader, did your eyes explode at the threshold" before they're all through. This is the sort of thing that ends up in a class action lawsuit when they all check their sperm counts later.

Arbitrary gunfight time! Judo chop! Critical hit!

Garibaldi sounded annoyed when the time traveler asked the year. As if it's not the most obvious question.

Poor Zathras. No one listens to Zathras.

Damn Sinclair, touching himself in public like that.... truly shocking.

Delenn has a lot of great things to say about us. She must be unaware of reality tv.

...Old Delenn was on B4 with Oldclair? I dont recall that.

She does like her fancy triangles.
