B5 Episodes You Prefer To Skip?

If had to determine my favourite B5 episodes I would say that I have 105 out of 110 favourite ones.Every episode is a unique part of the whole story, even if it's a stand alone.There are only few episodes that I oftenly skip when I rewatch the series:

-"Exogenesis"

-"TKO"

-"GROPOS"

I don't mean that those episodes are bad but they simply don't make me rewatch them over and over again like the others.

Re: B5 Episodes You Prefer To Skip?

The only thing that prompts me to rewatch "Soul Hunter" is the scene where Franklin comments about life while he and Ivanova are overseeing the launching into the sun of the body of the murdered lurker. Otherwise, that episode would be on my list of ones I'd skip.

I don't skip any, I really don't like watching a couple of them, but I still don't skip them.

Re: B5 Episodes You Prefer To Skip?

Same here. Even the worst episodes have some elements that tie into one of the arcs, so I do not skip any episodes. But there are some scenes I wish hadn't been included, like the Ivanova sex dance around the Lumati. It's embarrassing.

I don't feel tempted to skip any, except Interactions in real time. It's jaw-breakingly boring!

Re: B5 Episodes You Prefer To Skip?

The ones I prefer to skip are equivalent to my least favorite episodes, which are:

- Soul Hunter (D-)
- Believers (D-)
- Intersections in Real Time (D)

And, I can't remember which episode it's in, but I always fast-forward through the scene where Ivanova has diplomatic "sex" with the arrogant alien ambassador.

As for ones already mentioned, Exogenesis (C-), Survivors (C), and The Exercise of Vial Powers (C+) are not great either, but I can sit through them. Oddly enough, when I graded & ranked every episode in an Excel spreadsheet a few years back, I actually gave TKO, GROPOS, and Strange Relations all a B-. I guess everyone's different.

That spreadsheet is four years old, probably the last time I watched every episode back to back. Since fall 2004, new TV shows have been so good, I haven't had much time for DVDs. I'm tempted to watch the whole series again this summer. I wonder if I'll feel differently about episode quality now.

Re: B5 Episodes You Prefer To Skip?

I love Believers, because it's all too believable. The sort of circumstances that shouldn't arise, but that do.

I'm sometimes tempted to skip the "political" episodes, such as the one where the blonde political advisor with the horrid dead voice was sent to B5. It set my teeth on edge, although it was refreshing to see her sent back where she came from.

Re: B5 Episodes You Prefer To Skip?

I forgot to mention "Intersections In Real Time".It's hard to watch a proud man like Sheridan tied and interrogated in a prison cell.

Re: B5 Episodes You Prefer To Skip?

I don';t skip that episode, but I really don't like it. It's really not realistic in any way and I'm sure that all the political prisoners put there that have been tortured wish they only had to endure what Sherdian went through.
