Can't quite put my finger on it yet.... but something has changed.

I'll figure it out sooner or later.

The moment is suspect.


You hear that? That deafening silence? That's the sound of impending doom just over the horizon. It looms waiting to descend upon us all.

Babylon 5 is likely the best Sci Fi story told on television, period. You REALLY want to see the PILOT, please watch the pilot! after that the first season is little rocky, the second season it starts to go, the third and fourth are simply amazing. The fifth, well you need a fifth to finish it.


Pretty much this. Babylon 5 was a great series but has a really slow start. But you can't skip the beginning of Babylon 5 because it all becomes relevant in the second season and then really becomes relevant in the third, which makes the first season awesome in retrospect.

But yeah, I agree that the first season (and the pilot) are... really bad, in some respects. It's just something that I'd say you'll have to stomach through in order to get the massive amounts of win later on in the series.

Excellent summary.

Yes, basically you have to just 'pay your dues' watching the Pilot and Season 1 in order to have the foundation for the *very* satisfying long term payoff.

Umm, wait, does that kinda sound like something else? :)

Just finished it. I have to say that is the most well developed character wise, consistent, thought out, tv series I have seen in my life.

Although I want to know who the other bad guys are but, I still felt like it closed well. It really evolved.

We are Gray, we stand between the darkness and the light...

If you didn't stick with B5 until episode 6 or so, you missed the best Sci-Fi on tv with the exception of Dr Who. Period.

As said by G'Kar, "...the war had paused, suddenly and unexpectedly. All around us, it was as if the universe were holding its breath…waiting. All of life can be broken down into moments of transition, or moments…of revelation. This had the feeling of both.

G'Quan wrote, "There is a greater darkness than the one we fight. It is the darkness of the soul that has lost its way. The war we fight is not against powers and principalities, it is against chaos and despair. Greater than the death of flesh is the death of hope. The death of dreams. Against this peril we can never surrender." The future is all around us, waiting in moments of transition, to be born in moments of revelation. No one knows the shape of that future, or where it will take us. We know only that it is always born…in pain."

Meh...


With the growth of cable TV, the strangle hold on new programming by the major networks was broken. Individual TV Show producers could go straight to sindication on numerous cable networks bypassing the major networks and local affiliates.

This spawned a crud ton of new shows. Star Trek TNG, Hercules, it's spin off spin Zena, B5, Techwar, etc, etc, etc, etc... It was awesome. If I missed B5 on TBS, I could catch it later in the week on WGN, or on another afternoon on local tv or...

After a couple years as direct to sindication tv sucked more and more and more viewers away from the 4 big networks and their local affiliates, they began to lobby the USA Congress HARD. "OHs NOs!!!! IT WILL BE THE END OF LOCAL TV AND LOCAL NEWS!!!!!"

So congress was bought off and passed a new law that if a local station carried a direct to TV original run series, the program had to be blocked on all non-local cable stations. I would turn on TBS at B5 time to find a black screen with plain text saying this program blocked.

With the loss in revenue from being able to auction the rights to programs direct to multiple cable stations in first run, the independants slowly started closing up and being forced to go back to the networks.

B5's original 5 year arc was quickly rewrtten, slamming the final 2 years into only 1. Then TBS came up with the money to buy a 5th season of B5, so they had to rewrite again.

The series finally which ran at the end of season 5 was supposed to run at the end of season 4 when it was originally shot.

But, anyway, back to the disturbance in the force.....

I tried watching it, but couldn't get past the 3rd ep. Farscape was much better


I wasn't a fan of B5 during it's broadcast. However, having watched it on video, several times now, I have to say it really is a good story, until season 5. Season 4, imo, was the real ending of the series. The story arcs if you can can hang in through the first season start hooking you in the second season. But the third season you're like a crack addict stealing everything you can get your hands on to get your fix.

The pilot, I've only seen once. You'll enjoy the character development between the pilot and season one. Londo Mallari is by far my favorite character of any series.

B5 was by far and away the best written, acted and developed series of sci fi from an era of basically carp.

Farscape was weird sci fi, going back to the days of Flash Gordon and the Saturday afternoon cinema sci fi. Briliantly acted but some of the storywriting wasnt up to the same level.

Firefly, oh for a chance to do that series again. Born in an age of AAD teenagers dribbling over/wanting to be Buffy. Worst crime, Andromeda got more series than it did!!!!

One more I would like to throw into the pot. Space : above and beyond was BSG:2003 styled, well charactirised and ALOT of fun (Chigy Von Ricktohoven). Another show with so much potential born in the wrong era.

B5 was well written. That I can agree upon. Actor quality? I'll just say that they had some very talented people, and then a lot were not.

Farscape, you don't want to go there. Post STTNG, it's the best sci-fi out there, imo. Some of their 'quirky' episodes were pure fun. One in particular, I'll concede it was pure crap. Beyond that, the overall quality of the show was top notch.

Firefly, this is another show I didn't watch until video. It had a lot of potential. Ashame it was only one season and a movie. The acting here was pretty good too.

Your side, my side, my side, your side!!

I agree that B5 is a much better written tv series than many.
Hell, i like it even more that Star Trek.
But for me the best EVER tv show of ALL time is the latest version Battlestar Galactica.
BSG is the undisputed champion off all tv series.
