So, you have a checkered past, but not a checked post?

It being beside S&P is the worst thing about TKO. As this meant that I actually speant MONEY to see it, when my sister and I got the British VHS release of S&P and TKO. At least most other awesome episodes of the season had the decency to be leased together
with a second episode that was at least decent.

Re: New vote for worst episode ever: Between the Darkness and the Light

For me most of the worse episodes came in Season 1 and 5. Season 1 was a slow burn were the overall plot was slowly advanced. In season 5, I think between the shadow war ending, Claudia leaving and budget restraints, season 5 left me wanting more

Any episode about dock workers. Seriously though I didnít like Sic Transit Vir because Londo comes across as a genocidal Nazi but we are supposed to believe as the series progresses that he is capable of redemption. Doesnít fit especially at that point in the arc.

When I was young I found it a boring episode (because it didn't have any pew-pew) but now I'm older I can really appreciate Michael O'Hare's tour de force performance in this episode, and guest actress Katy Boyer puts in a really strong performance too. I think episodes like this are what make B5 feel more real to me than Deep Space Nine. I also liked the fact that Eduardo Delvientos came back for a cameo in And Now For a Word.

I dunno. I love Babylon 5. I'm not sure anymore that I'd want to label any episodes as 'the worst'. I find something of value in all of them.

I completely agree with this statement. If anything negative about an episode can be said it is usually in one aspect of the plot that gets made up for in the other aspects, ie the A plot might not be my favorite, but the B plot makes up for it. And another negative for me would be the things that were good in the episode, but were not mentioned again after the episode. As an example I feel the Vindrizi from EXOGENESIS 3.7 could have been mentioned again and served as a major source of information during the Wars.

Re: New vote for worst episode ever: Between the Darkness and the Light

I love this blast from the past thread of which I remember but never took part in! Makes me wonder whatever happened to some of these people that used to be a staple here.

Anyway, 14 years later, I do concur that each episode provides something of value in one plot whereas the other one or two may not. I definitely don't enjoy some episodes as much as others and think certain aspects could have been left out like grey 17.

Re: New vote for worst episode ever: Between the Darkness and the Light

Pretty much every episode has some merit, but if I had to choose:

Eyes - Overacting incarnate. Gregory Martin sure is ANGRY, at EVERYTHING.

Infection - Yes, it has the organic / shadow tech hint, but good god this is a clunky as hell monster of the week episode that just doesn't work. It put a close friend off the series for life. He was unconvinced to start with, this episode put the nail squarely in the coffin.
