Re: EpDis: The Coming Of Shadows

One of the best episodes ever. What wonderful tragedy. JMS builds up hope and sets the pieces up to build towards healing and a better universe for all, and it all crumbles horribly. Londo had to be thinking about suicide after that. You gotta love it.

Re: EpDis: The Coming Of Shadows

This is the first "Wow!" episode, so it is the first A I have given (although I may have given an A for Chrysalis). There is aa lot going on in this ep and it really sets the scene for the rest of the story. If new viewers are not hooked at this point, they will be after watching this

Re: EpDis: The Coming Of Shadows

An A from me one of the best of the series and the emperor's speech still resonates today.

Re: EpDis: The Coming Of Shadows

A from me, simple as. Everything that needed to be said as to why it gets an A has been said already!!

Even though most of you have commented on turhan's speech in dome room, i personally just love Kosh's entrance at turhans death bed and his entire 2 word dialog thats sum's it all up nicely.

Yes, "In fire" can apply to so many things.

Re: EpDis: The Coming Of Shadows

Wow. This is amazing. Considering how many posts there have been about differing opinions on various episodes, especially the minorities of people who like the predominately less-favored episodes, it's amazing how consistent the opinions are on this one.

Granted, it's unlikely that anyone would find this episode mediocre and virtually unthinkable that anyone would hate it. But, no one is even giving it a 'B'. With 30 votes in at the time I'm writing this, it's unanimous that the episode is grade 'A'.

Don't get me wrong; I agree. I gave it an 'A' too. I guess I'm just surprised that at least one person didn't give it anything less. And since no one did...

This is definitely a prime example of great television.

Re: EpDis: The Coming Of Shadows

It seems some contrarian gave it an "F" since your last post. Probably a troll of some sort.

This ep blew me away the first time I saw it, and I still get shivers at certain points, when I see it again and again.

Re: EpDis: The Coming Of Shadows

It's a great episode, and has the Sinclar cameo in it too (I think)!

However, my favourite is just a few more episodes down the line

Re: EpDis: The Coming Of Shadows

It's just brilliant! From the emperor's speech to Sheridan, to G'kar's conversation with Franklin, to Londo's talk with Vir ("By this time tomorrow, we will be at war with the Narns. May th Great Maker forgive me!"), to his dream , his toast with G'Kar, everything about the episode is just perfect. Undoubtedly the best Season 2 episode.
