Re: So I started watching "Babylon 5" for the first time.

B5 tells a great story. Any complaints about CGI are just folks wanting eyecandy. All the awesome special effects in the world would do nothing for me with a shite story. Take TOS and Lost in Space, very similar special effects, acting, and production values for the time, it's the stories that make TOS a superior show. Doctor Who had laughable special effects in the 60s and 70s, but also, great stories that made any dodgy space prawns easy to overlook for the tale being told. B5 is a wonderful story, especially elevated by the performances of Andreas Katsulas and Peter Jurasik.
