Isn't this the whole point. It's an interesting idea, something new and out of the ordinary.
"Let's give it a try and see if it works".
Some people thought it did, some thought it didn't. Being a Brit I haven't seen it yet, so can't comment one way or the other, but let's at least give JMS some credit for trying out new ideas, when so much SFTV is bland and formulaic.
<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, arial">quote:</font><HR>...JMS needs to talk to us more.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
Why? Because we know better?
This board proves that some people loved the gunnery pod, some hated it, some thought the movie should have been more like B5, some thought it was very enjoyable in its own right.
Likewise, some people hated S5 of Babylon 5, others loved it. I thought it was a bit dull, but with some really good stuff in there.
Even if JMS decided that he wants the fans input (which he won't) how could he form anything cohesive from the diversity of opinions that abound.
I think we should be happy to let him go where he feels his universe is taking him and just enjoy the ride.
"Let me be the first to say that this is the nuttiest idea you've ever had."
