The subject matter leaves little room for B5's fun sense of humour and irreverance.
I agree with the last sentence that some of their worst moments were times when they tried too hard to be funny.Wait a sec. B5 has a fun sense of humor?
I've always thought humor is the one area that B5 never got right, and always failed to deliver. Some of the weakest and cheesiest moments in all of B5 are where they are trying to be funny...and it comes across as forced and always feels out of place.
I loved it when he fell over after finishing that drink!
As far as I can remember, one of the funniest moments of the series was between Vir and Lennier. When they were complaining about their jobs and ended with "same time tomorrow" "yea" or whatever.
That was, for me at least, a bit of a comic gem.
