Re: Niners Unite...around Babylon 5! - The Lost Threads

In a nutshell the actor playing the Colonel bloke was hamming it up something rotten, almost to the point of parody. In fact, I felt he acted as if he was a character in Dr. Strangelove; any second I expected him to start obsessing about the security of the station's fluids...
Maybe it's because the guy was more of a stage actor, or felt the part called for an over the top, Patton-type fool (hardly unheard of with senior military types) I have no idea. Either way it didn't fit the tone and violently clashed with Combe's low key performance.
