But if you skip season one you miss Sinclair who besides being an interesting and different character has arc importance in later seasons.

But you can always swing around and catch him later, and it's a matter of record that some people find his performance off-putting, whether or not the performance presented is what was intended.

As I noted earlier, if I'd been "forced" to watch B5 in order I might well have given up on it.

Nice to see you now have the DVDs. It's one of the shows I want to get on DVD at some stage. Around 6 years, I was never a fan of Babylon 5, but brought a video copy of a 2 part episode from season 1 on video one night. Watched it and was impressed.

Anyways when I moved to Newcastle a few years ago, borrowed the DVDs from the library a few times. Haven't watched the show in a while. It's something I want to watch again. Sadly I won't have the time before I see some B5 folks at an upcoming convention.

Enjoy the DVDs Dream.

Yes agree with on that very mush so. I mean season 1 episode 2 has a big important link to Sinclair later on. When the soul hunter says something along the lines of "they are using you, don't you see that??"

I think the core season 1 episodes are :

The Parliament of Dreams
Mind War
And The Sky Full of Stars
Signs and Portents
A Voice in the Wilderness
Babylon Squared
Chrysalis
