Re: Farscape or Babylon 5?
So did they even have a writing staff for those seasons, or was it all just him in an office somewhere by himself?
Pretty much. The only other writing staff that there'd been at all was Larry DiTillio, the story editor (who also wrote 7 episodes) for the first two seasons. Once it was cleared with the studio that JMS would be writing all of season 3, he was released.
The breakdown of JMS-written episodes was
S1 - 12
S2 - 15
S3 - 22
S4 - 22
S5 - 21
To bad, JMS really needed someone to polish his dialog. Some of it really makes my ears bleed.
The boring one, the one with Khan, the one where Spock returns, the one with whales, the dumb one, the last one, the one with Kirk, the one with the Borg, the stupid one, the bad one, the new one, the other one with Khan.
