Okay, we're going to see that again. Any bets on when? Crysalis definitely will cause it but I doubt it will be the next episode to do it. Babylon Squared is a good contender.Especially cause of the reveal about Sinclair.

My bet would be "A Voice in the Wilderness"

Oshiro likes "Eyes."

this is an incredible episode and will remain one of the best of season one for me.
Regarding Talia and Ivanova:

(Also, I’m selfish; I wanted to see her interact with Ivanova, especially after Gray caught Ivanova thinking about her. I CAN DREAM, OKAY.)
Regarding pacing of the episode.

Quote:
every time I thought this episode was going to settle down, NOPE. EVERYTHING GOT WORSE. By the time Ben Zayn relieved Sinclair of command, I was panicking. HOW WAS ALL OF THIS HAPPENING IN A SINGLE EPISODE.

...I canít ignore just how huge and invasive the Earthís military is in this episode, and I donít think this will be the only time they interfere like this.

Re: Mark Oshiro watches Babylon 5

I've bought access to Episodes 1x22 and 2x01. In an effort to get you guys to start watching his reaction videos I'll offer the remaining 14 downloads to anyone who has already posted on this thread before I post them on The Black Market. Send me a PM on here and I'll send you the link. If no one asks I'll post them up on there in a couple of days.



BTW, this is perfectly legal as far as I can tell. Mark encourages the sharing of his videos via The Black Market. I'm just trying to rope you guys in first.

His reaction to "Babylon Squared" was everything that I could hope for. Gosh, this is fun!

Re: Mark Oshiro watches Babylon 5

Y'know, he's seeing a lot on his first pass that I hadn't noticed until later, or ever. Take this:

Quote:
You can be “spaced” for mutiny or treason. But… not murder? Apparently, the military and national security concerns are placed higher than anything else.
I'd always heard that line and thought, "Okay, I guess those are worse crimes, sure..." But because he's been talking about the problems on Earth so much, he spotted something I hadn't and placed that rule in the context of the postwar trauma that's shaping the EA so much.

Which in turn lends more interesting insight to "The Sky Full of Stars" and "Eyes" and several other eps, particular "Sky..." -- if traitors can be spaced, then those who are convinced Sinclair is a traitor feel all the more justified in messing with him.

It's also worth noting Garibaldi's preference for more capital punishment reveals that, unlike some most SF shows (*coughcoughTrekcoughcough*) it's not a matter of "We've learned better and we don't do that any more," it's a matter of some humans saying, "We've learned, we don't do that!" and others saying, "Yeah, but we still should." Infinitely more realistic, since it mirrors our own cultural clashes these days.

Of course, Garibaldi is advocating harsher punishment in pursuit of justice, while many of the antagonists on this show are advocating harsher punishment because otherwise "We've gone soft." Significant difference, there.
