Re: Babylon 5 S2

Oy. Disclaimer - I'm trying to err on the side of being overly-generous, but not necessarily succeeding. "Not Bad" means Not Bad...it doesn't mean Awesome. It definitely doesn't mean Arc-Critical. Going from very old memory and just expressing opinion.

Not Bad TNG - WNOHGB, The Battle, Haven, TBG, Datalore, 11001001, Coming of Age, Heart of Glory, AoF, Conspiracy, TNZ.

Not Bad B5 - MotFL, Soul Hunter, PoD, And the Sky, Signs and Portents, B Squared, Chrysalis

Re: Babylon 5 S2

You would miss out a few episodes that are important to the story arc of B5. Like for instance Babylon Squared, which will pop up later in the storyline.

Re: Babylon 5 S2

I kind of see that as a matter of getting one or the other side of the story first, provided you eventually see B Squared, though admittedly you'll miss out on some surprises.

Datalore, 11001001, Coming of age, Heart of Glory, AoF where not on my lists, but I can see why you would think they are not bad episodes. Can't say I agree with WNOHGB, and Haven, and leaving out the battle. But thats the fun thing about opinions.

As for b5, Including Soul Hunter and leaving out "Wilderness" seems to be odd, as I think your the first person I know to like soul hunter. and most like Wilderness for its explore and fun space battle.

But as i said, opinions are unique...and thanks for posting

Re: Babylon 5 S2

Given how old my memories are, it's entirely possible that I'd refine my list if I had the opportunity and inclination to do a rewatch.

So, Chanukkah's coming up pretty soon...

Re: Babylon 5 S2

I like 11001001, but having just watched it again last week, much of my love for it may in reality be lust for Carolyn McCormick in that red dress. YOWZA!!

That is understandable, I love one of the worse TNG episodes ever ("The Dauphin") for Jaime Hubbard...
