Re: Lochley - Good or Bad???

Simply put, I do not like the character. It didn't feel to me that she brought anything to the show, but I suppose that she fits in the picture - it could've been a lot worse. I don't particularly miss Ivanova either since I didn't like the latter comedian as much as I did like the stiff one in the first season.

You know who I would've loved to see running B5? Zack. Man, that could've been great. They could've toned down the military outpost crap and shove it more into something like a real diplomatic station with an internal security running the whole shebang.

Re: Lochley - Good or Bad???

My own take on it is that Lochley was fairly terrible in B5, but really pretty good in Crusade, and adequate in "Lost Tales." I would have liked to have seen more of her, and I think I would have liked the character a lot more, had she been introduced at any time other than the final season of B5, when it was just one more source of stress on an already-overstressed production.

Re: Lochley - Good or Bad???

I liked Lochleys character, and tried not to see her as an Ivanova substitute. That being said, I was as upset as I suspect most of you were when Claudia left. Claudia was irreplaceable, and Tracy must have felt enormous pressure when she came on the show.

Re: Lochley - Good or Bad???

Yeah. My aversion to Lochley in S5 was mostly that her character felt a little half-baked and not-quite-lived-in yet. By the time of the movies and Crusade, it seemed like writer and actress had a much better sense of who she was, and suddenly she became a lot more likeable
