Re: is babylonian 5 any good

To cut to the quick, Heinlein was a right wing loon who thought superior people didn't have to follow standard morals, especially about sex. When desegregation came around, he stopped being interested in the real world and dived into his navel. His earlier stuff was better because he hadn't purged himself of left-wing influences yet. (Social Credit, his first, unacknowledged, wife) The juveniles benefit from restraining his natural impulses and using his talent for exposition. (Calling exposition an infodump is a tactic used by people who can't write interesting exposition.)
