in the beginning there was In The Beginning

I may be committing heresy here, but I actually preferred Sinclair's style of command to Sheridan's. I'd have probably gotten on better with him too.
"In the Beginning" will hook them under the promise that by the time the show hits its stride every episode is that good.

Does anyone have any experience with anyone that was hooked just because of "In the Beginning"?

*Ahem* See my above post.

I had heard of Babylon 5, but I never really cared to check it out until In the Beginning. It was an amazing piece of writing...(unlike that drek that is The Gathering). :p
