Re: End of Shadow War = Lame

Additionally the entire season 4 was a bit rushed because during production time it was unsure if B5 would get a 5th season. JMS had the entire show planned out in 5 seasons and if i recall correctly the Shadow war should have ended with the season 4 cliffhanger and other events past it should take up 5th season as a whole.

So JMS had to cut corners to finish at least the main plot and when 5th season got greenlighted he was stuck with what he had and explored other (additional) themes in season 5.

People with the (awesomely expensive) official scriptbooks could go into more detail i believe as to what happened behind the scenes.
