Re: WB looking into Babylon 5 in HD?

I wouldn't buy a 4:3 upconverted NTSC Blu-ray version despite the many flaws that exist in the region 2 PAL DVD release. WB are paying the price for not looking after their cash cow. If TPTB want to splash some cash, I'd rather see a new grand space opera based on a SF universe that isn't related to Farscape, Firefly, Star Trek, or Babylon 5. There are plenty of authors to choose from -- Isaac Asimov, Stephen Baxter, Iain M Banks, Lois McMaster Bujold, Peter F Hamilton, Larry Niven, Alastair Reynolds, or even E E "Doc" Smith. I hear that we might be getting a Spielberg-produced Halo TV show sometime soon. Hopefully, TV space opera will be back in vogue for a while.
