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

I really liked B5 and feel that it was an excellent show. That said, if I had to pick between B5 and DS9, I'd choose the latter.

B5, while mostly great, was a little cheesy at times.

The whole "ZAAH HAH DOOM!" thing was a bit silly, and the Vorlons were about as impressive as a prop from an Ed Wood movie. In terms of production values, the show looked like 1980s-era Dr. Who. BG came out only a few years later, and think about how much better it looked by comparison.

And Zima?


All complaining aside, it was a great show with a great cast and it had some some real compelling stories.

Love, love, love Babylon 5. It's one of my absolute favourite shows along with DS9.

I prefer B5's ambition and tendency for experimentation but I'd also say that generally DS9 is better at execution. The Dominion War felt like an actual long-term war whereas the Shadow War seemed to amount to two brief skirmishes.

Basically everything Kosh EVER said is my favorite quote. LOL

Picture a Vorlon and a Breen in the same room. They make similar noises, but Kosh's are more musical. The Breen sound like Transformers transforming every time they talk, but it's still an interesting yet alien noise.

If Sisko was going off on Kosh, telling him the Vorlons need to get off their Encounter suited butts and do something, would Sisko have punched Kosh, like he did Q?

Kosh: Sheridan never hit me

I'm glad we got Sheridan out of him and not some Federation besotted Captain. Much more interesting.

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

During our re-re-re-watch of B5, I really noticed for the first time how rushed season 4 is at times. I mean, I noticed it a bit before, but there were times I felt as if I missed an episode or two, with thing moving ahead so fast some things felt to rushed. Like Garibaldi's situation.

Still loving it though.

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

Well S4 of B5 is a bit rushed due to it not being picked up for a fifth season at that time., so the arcs had to be condesed a tad.

I don't follow how Garibaldi's situation feels like that. There are quite a few episodes about it and that thread goes through most of the fourth season (with some followup in season five).

It just feels pretty fast to me. The switch to not wanting to work for Sheridan because of wanting his own freedom to not wanting to work for him because of trust issues and how Sheridan is doing the wrong thing went pretty fast, especially if you watch a few eps back to back.

I'm aware of this, it's just that this is the first time watching it became so aware to me just how rushed it was.

But i dont think it's supposed to feel exactly natural, considering Bester and Harlan-cop did do work on him. The audience is supposed to know something is off.

Ofcourse, but I prefer it would have taken one or two episodes longer, build up to his resentment towards Sheridan a bit more.

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

Season 4 was originally supposed to end with Sheridan's capture on Mars wasn't it?

I actually love the pacing of the fourth season, it's absolutely break-neck at times. I think the start of the fifth season suffers because of it, but I probably still wouldn't change anything if I could.
