I've been watching B5, I've watched the first five episodes and it really hasn't grabbed me. They've all been ok, nothing great. Just....ok. Does it get any better? I loved DS9, and I love BSG, TNG when I was a kid but I'm not a big sci-fi fan and this seems huge on sci-fi.
On first viewing, most of season one isn't going to grab you. However, as you move on with the series, you'll realize how important *most* of it was. If you're not onboard by the end of season two, though, (which, I realize is a long ways away) then I'd bail. But it's really a series that took me a long time to appreciate, and I think it is the same for a lot of others, too. However, after viewing the entire thing (twice now), it really is a fantastic series. It's not without it's quirks and faults, but it's a fantastic series nonetheless.
