TKO (Babylon 5) - This was an entertaining episode. I liked seeing Smith trying to get a match, and his match at the end was pretty good. There was some interesting character development for Ivanova, although I thought that she had forgiven her father when talking to him before he died (and her flashing back to it is what basically made her forgive him, anyway). Also, I never would have guessed she was jewish, not that it matters but it was somewhat surprising (I could have missed it being mentioned in an earlier episode). Overall, this was a solid episode.
One of the things that I like about B5 is the fact that the human characters ARE religious. That human religions EXIST. Now, I'm atheist, but it always gave me a headache that the characters in Star Trek just had seemingly NO belief system. It was ALWAYS the aliens.

Anyway, I'm glad JMS did that for the characters in B5.
