I didn't get far into the episode I just went "Oh look, the mind-reading mandate for all sci-fi shows episode" and stopped caring. It just feels so over done by now (even though this was done before it was overdone) that I couldn't watch it last night.
You might want to give it another try. It's a pretty important episide and changes one relationship considerably.

I had somewhat the same reaction back in the day except for me it was 'oh, look, the main guy gets captured'. But it turns out to be well done.

B5's handling of telepaths was enjoyable and the Earth society's response to telepaths was more believable than in Trek for my money.
