Oh yeah... that. Definitely can understand the disagreements over it, even if I personally didn't have a problem with it. The most common complaint seems to be it was so anti-climactic, and truth be told given the acceleration of the storyline it wasn't the most smoothly executed of resolutions. Still, as unconventional as it seemed I liked the idea of a major story being resolved in some way other than that requisite gargantuan space battle that Holywood feels must be included.

I agree. I think that having two huge battles would have ended up diluting the impact of both.

Alright, Neroon isn't just a dick.

He's a cowardly dick who would rather kill himself than live in Delenn's new world order.

So far, I'm liking season 2 a lot lot lot more than season 1. Seems more fast paced, better music, general direction etc.

Seriously, I didn't care for Neroon the first couple of times he showed up (the character, not the poster).

But that last bit was alright, and, after readin' that Lurker's Guide thing, it was almost kinda cool.

*goes back to watchin' Babylon 5 'Rising Star' on DVD*

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

Well, I really liked 'Rising Star'. That would have been a really nice season, if not series, finale.

Watchin' 'The Deconstruction of Falling Stars' now, and damn, this is weak.

After this, I'll be movin' back to Babylon 5: The Movie Collection.

I love DoFS but then I generally love the off-format episodes the best. Which sequences did you like/dislike the most, od0_ital?

Season 3 imo is the best of all. Its pretty much quality all the way through, with maybe 1 or 2 lame ones.

Just make sure you don't watch River of Souls or Call to Arms before season five is done. Or, for that matter, Legend of the Rangers (if you give it a shot). RoS takes place the year after the majority of season five, in 2263, and Call to Arms takes place even latter, in late 2266, IIRC. Legend of the Rangers is somewhere in between. Thirdspace takes place during season four, and In the Beginning has a framing sequence that won't spoil anything, and the rest of it is a prequel that won't spoil anything for you after finishing season four.

And let us know how you feel about season five. Personally, I think it would have been best to do the Rising Star/Sleeping in Light finale as was originally forced. There are plenty of bits in season five that I like, but as a whole, its the weakest season in my view.

Crusade, on the other hand, can be a lot of fun.

In 'The Deconstruction of Falling Stars', the only good sequence was when old Delenn showed up & kicked ass.

I've written up most of my thoughts at my LiveJournal -

- and I'm watchin' Babylon 5: In the Beginning now.

Not to sound like a broken record, but don't watch River of Souls or Call to Arms before season five. It just wouldn't make sense.

Yeah, I caught that, and I checked the list that OmahaStar sent me before I cracked any of the sets open.

Don't worry.
