    RIP Michael Ansara (Elric)

    Good on you for mentioning B5. Sadly, seems to me that only Star Trek is sufficiently known among non-sci-fi fans to be mentioned in obits. Most obits for Michael O'Hare seemed to omit B5 even though Sinclair was one of his biggest acting roles.

    Michael Ansara, perhaps best known for his Star Trek role as Kang and to Babylon 5 fans as the technomage Elric, has died at the age of 91. Variety.com

    Babylon 5 Characters

    My two absolute favorites are Ivanova and Franklin. Garibaldi is also pretty good. G'kar is my favorite among the aliens, mainly because he changes so much, there's real character development there.

    Stephen Furst ?

    He's been doing mostly TV movies and shorts lately. Last thing I saw him in was Scrubs, as Dr. Franklyn. :lol:

    Upconverting Babylon 5 DVD's to 1080i/1080p?

    I'm currently on a rewatch of the DVDs on a PS3 / fullHD system. The show was originally shot on film rather than videotape, so most shots convert nicely and are lovely and sharp. However, any FX intense scenes are much more blurry. It's particularly noticeable in scenes that were shot against a...

    A Thought About the Vorlons

    The Minbari eventually reach the same status as humans do, becoming more Vorlon-like, although whether that happens before, after, or around the same time as for humans, that's hard to say. Of course, there are at least two humans who reach that state before the rest of us do, Jason Ironheart...

    Telepaths ---season 5 -- how do you rate them?

    I never liked the telepath arc much, and Byron only made things worse. I just wanted Bester to come and take them away most of the time.

    Favourite minor character?

    Cartagia. He's so totally, adorably nuts!

    Babylon 5 Station in Lego

    Indeed. Particularly since one of the other options is a planet seen from space... Other than that niggle, it looks cool!

    Cool stuff throughout the show

    Re: Cool stuff in season 1 From the second time I watched B5, I noticed how Delenn was building the support for the triluminary she used in Crysalis whenever they'd show her in her quarters. This from about midway in the 1st season.

    The Most Annoying Guest Character In B5?

    Brad Dourif is a fine actor, but I admit I didn't like the character very much either. Even though I loved him as Grima in LotR and Dr. Cochran in Deadwood.

    Teep homeworld

    This is really interesting! The problem with the Teeps in general and Byron in particular was that they couldn't think in the long term. Perhaps Draal could have been persuaded to host the Teeps until the Markab homeworld could be declared safe?
