Re: Farscape or Babylon 5?

I'm not going to respond to any of the real life political stuff. I don't want to get into a discussion, because political stuff never ends well (especially since I'm a more moderate guy and end up annoying both Democrats and republicans anyway ).All I'll say is that I'll admit there is stupid stuff nowadays, but that its not anywhere near as bad as B5.

Anyway, on to the next episode I watched

Epiphanies - Something is definately up with Garibaldi, which I already figured out. I liked Zach's interaction with Londo, followed up with Bester and the Elvis impersonators Actually, thinking back, we knew that the vorlons had saved Jack the Ripper. Could they have had Elvis, too? G'Kar's reaction to seeing Garibaldi was great. So, an emabrgo on earth ships coming to B5. That sucks for the humans, but so many aliens use B5 that it doesn't really matter. Sure, they mention something about the dictator trying to get rid of B5's alien friends, but that will probably not be very effective. I have to say, I like Lyta much better than Talia. Talia wasn't a bad character, but I like Lyta a good deal more. Bester was great in this episode, as always. The presidents plan was probably the first plan he's had from a propaganda/fooling people perspective thats made sense. I can't believe that Bester was talking to Lyta about "moral obligation". I liked when she repulsed his mental scanning so strongly that it caused a physical reaction. It was interesting to learn that Lyta was responsible for bester not getting what he wants. Still, it might cause them more trouble in the future, Bester implied as much while talking to his frozen mistress. Seeing the allies flee was interesting. Seeing the thing with the regent after the allies fled the planet was interesting. still, it would be more effective if it was more mysterious, and I didn't know what was going to come of it . Overall, this was a good episode. Next, I'll be watching probably my most dreaded episode of B5 ever.
