Re: Niners Unite...around Babylon 5! - The Lost Threads

Bummer, easter eggs? *slaps head* Okaay, I think I remember I read something about that. ... I'd better go dig up my B5 dvds. Funny I'd think there are no outtakes. Must be getting old.

Are you in the US? If so, you can try hulu.com, first. That way you can see the firt two seasons without risk.

Any questions, just fire away. There are a couple of good websites to use as resources, as well

Re: Niners Unite...around Babylon 5! - The Lost Threads

Okay I'm just going through Season 1. It's okay. It has a cohesiveness in a series that I really like. The episodes just appeared standalone at first but drop hints that are followed up.

Haven't really got to an episode that has completely hooked me yet. Well maybe the "Signs and Portents" one. Haven't seen the last two yet.

Some characters are better than others. G'Kar (who I think I love) and Londo (?) seem more interesting than the Minbari ambassador.

Have to say I really applaud the creators for trying to get some non-human lookalike aliens in. The Black Market dealer for instance.

Also like that the station is more like a city and there's parts that "respectable" people don't go and parts where the commander isn't even recognized. Good stuff.

I lent a co-worker's wife my DVDs and she's supposed to be finishing with Season 5 today. I wish she's email and let me know her reaction!!

That sort of ends up being a failed experiment when it comes to Babylon 5. JMS was never happy with the non-humanoid alien designs (witness his response to the insectoid character you've mentioned, as well as the Ape-man bartender in the pilot), and they're (as far as I can remember) completely dropped by the second season.

Interesting. I still admire the attempt though.

Okay finished season 1. Last episode was good and really got me in the mood for the second season. Only I had a look at the cover and there's a new commander? Hmm..okay.

Re: Niners Unite...around Babylon 5! - The Lost Threads

The changeover from Sinclair to Sheridan is a long, and oft-disputed story. It's incorporated into the plot, and Michael O'Hare returns to the series in three more episodes to close his storyline (I won't say when, it'll ruin the surprise).

By the way, I think that "Revelations" (the second episode of season two) is one of my favorite episodes of the series. The first episode of the second season is only okay--they were still working out the kinks with Sheridan and Warren Keffer (who is a tertiary character, in the end).

To be honest, I didn't find Sinclair to be that interesting. I'm not sure if what was the actor or the character but he seemed to be lacking something compared to Ivanova and Garibaldi and others.

He does end up being awfully one-dimensional in a lot of scenes. Once you get past the mystery of what happened to him on the line, there's not a whole lot to the character. I don't think Straczynski really knew what to do with him outside of that. When the opportunity (or the studio ultimatum) came down for a change in command, Straczynski certainly wasn't against it.
