A suggestion about DVD credits: Skip the season two credits for the first two episodes, they're spoilerific as well.
There are also a few slight spoilers in the season 3 credits and I suppose one could make an argument for season 4 as well.

I never thought "clip" credits were a good idea.

That isn't what's being referred to here. Don't avoid the credits in general, they're pretty awesome.



A similar although less notable mistake occurs in season 4, when

Well I guess the thread title wasn't obvious enough with its "(NO spoilers, please)"...

Anything behind spoiler tags is fine, so long as it doesn't devolve into a conversation entirely in spoiler tags (which I've seen happen a few times). That's just common sense.

Well, your post was mostly spoiler tag, is it not? It's just common sense not to derail the conversation with stuff that the OP/reviewer hasn't even touched on - opening credit sequences and stuff happening in season 4!

Common sense and OP requests apply to moderators as well, I would think.

Yes it does apply to them, and Lindley understands that as well as, if not better than anyone. His post had material that added to the thread and yet still hid the appropriate material behind the tags, which seems to fit everyone's needs doesn't it?

If there is a problem with spoilers. just notify and the mods for this forum will handle it.

To that point I was speaking in generalities intentionally. But CorporalClegg seemed to be misunderstanding, so I had to clarify what I and Kegg were suggesting for his benefit. In order to do so, I had to use spoiler tags, because there's no other way to get sufficiently specific.

The second spoiler tag was an aside about a related oversight in the DVD creation process.

Happy? I'd rather not drag this further off-topic.

Re: A Niner Watches Babylon 5 (NO spoilers, please)

There were a couple of scenes in the script for "The Parliament of Dreams" that never made it to the final episode. In one, Sinclair goes to visit Ambassador Kosh to invite him to participate in the festival but is rebuffed. In the other, Sinclair and Ivanova discuss the assassination attempt against Kosh while watching some Drazi religious fireworks outside the station.

And for the record, I new what you were talking about--the season 4 reference was the same.

With season 3, I was talking about
Though I don't know if whats originally aired that way.

Now that we're all on the same page...

Re: A Niner Watches Babylon 5 (NO spoilers, please)

This thread scares me. Five episodes in and we're on page 8?

I rather like Parliament of Dreams, in spite of it's cheesiness. The religious lineup at the end of the episode is in particular a favourite scene. I enjoyed the introduction of Na'Toth as well. She seemed like someone who could give G'Kar a run for his money, but who throws her full weight behind him to serve and honour.

Wasn't it also the first episode with the full ensamble in it?

The extra bits in the script that never made it to air are also interesting.

You can go change your defaults to like 50 posts per page. Makes thing smaller that way in my opinion.

Did it? I don't seem to remember Talia Winters, say, but maybe she was in that episode. I'd be curious if there were any episodes of any season that had the full ensemble listed in the credits; actually, it'd strike me as a rather rare occurrence. Unlike Star Trek B5 is seldom keen on that idea.
