And, I'll bet you wouldn't have any issues whatsoever with my criticism (or writing) if I'd said something you'd agreed with. I've learned fandom seems to operate this way.
>>>production was halted at 13 episodes >>>six months before the show aired and >>>that the ratings (which were actually >>>pretty good) had nothing to do with it.
Your statement here is incorrect in numerous ways, and reflects belief in a spin control & "party line" (floated at the time pf the events) which ended-up not being entirely accurate.
Even though I feel this movie has a great many shortcomings, I sincerely hope you enjoy it & wish its cast and crew the fullest success. I don't happen to like this movie very much, which makes me a bad guy in many people's eyes. That's tough. I just want to see better B5 than *I* think we've been getting lately, and feel that trying to save the franchise requires stronger efforts & consistency than passable mediocrity. Embracing marginal product is *not* doing justice to the franchise as a whole. Instead, that is enabling its self-destruction.
But it's just an opinion...I don't necessarily expect people to share it. Have a good weekend, everybody.
All the best...
