Babylon 5: What should One watch?

Okay I am going to stir the pot a little and hopefully inspire some folks to start talking again.

If you were going to tell someone the perfect way to watch Babylon 5 to see the best of the best what would you say?

(This is not an episode order question. I'm sure this has been done before, but this is LOONEY's poll!!!!!! )

OPTIONS

1. Everything - THE GATHERING all the way through THE LOST TALES.

2. The Main Series ONLY - MIDNIGHT ON THE FIRING LINE through SLEEPING IN LIGHT.

3. The Main Series plus either or both cuts of THE GATHERING.

4. The Main Series plus THE GATHERING and IN THE BEGINNING.

5. The Main Series plus IN THE BEGINNING.

6. The Main Series plus all of the movies.

7. The Main Series plus the movies and CRUSADE.

8. The Main Series plus CRUSADE.

9. The Main Series plus LEGEND OF THE RANGERS.

10. The Main Series plus the LOST TALES


If the poll allowed 11 options the 11TH option would be "The Movies, CRUSADE, LEGEND OF THE RANGERS, and THE LOST TALES - ONLY", but we all know there isn't anyone out there who would vote for that option alone so it is probably best that I was limited to ten poll options.

PLEASE VOTE AND THEN DISCUSS YOUR REASONING.

Re: Babylon 5: What should One watch?

Everything.



I might have not recommended Crusade unless you're really into B5 but rewatching it as part of Mark Watches is making me like it a whole lot more. The only thing I'd consider missing out is Legend of the Rangers because it doesn't go anywhere. Although I might say to miss Crusade and A Call to Arms because that's also a story lacking a conclusion even though what is there is pretty good.

But it does have a conclusion. Just watch THE LOST TALES and you know everything worked out just fine.

Re: Babylon 5: What should One watch?

I'd say, everything EXCEPT the Rangers and Lost Tales (and a lot of season 5 maybe).

Re: Babylon 5: What should One watch?

REALLY?!?!?!

I agree that Rangers is flawed, but it also has G'Kar.

I admit I only truly like half of the Lost Tales. Just mentioning reboot ideas over on JMS News and thank you deaded for reminding me of another reboot scenario or inclusion I'd like to see and that is not only something about David Sheridan, but what becomes of Prince Regent Dius Vintari after being mentored by Delenn and Sheridan. There is a WHOLE series in itself.

BABYLON 5: THE ADVENTURES OF DAVID AND DIUS.

And thanks for reviving this thread. I can't believe I only have 6 votes in all this time.

Re: Babylon 5: What should One watch?

Looks like Looney is having a LOT of success driving people away from this place. At least when it comes to commenting.

WHY DOESN'T ANYONE WANT TO TALK TO ME?!?!?!?!?!

Re: Babylon 5: What should One watch?

Aren't you super busy with Amazon Prime Day?

I am so sorry I couldn't resist. I imagine you hate that, but I couldn't help myself. I'm sick I know it.

Thank you for stopping back in. I swear I am about to start Private Messaging people to get them to come back. It is needy, but this just seems like it has the potential to be a far more fulfilling social media experience than the likes of Facebook, but Facebook gives people immediate gratification.

Weird. I could have sworn the poll said it had 11 votes and now it says there are only 10. So strange.
