Crusade didn't have a pilot episode. The only characters who carry over from ACtA are Dureena and Galen...and the Excaliber.

I liked the movie all right but I didn't really care for the way Sheridan was portrayed. He seemed to have aged far too quickly.

When the best thing I can say about the movie is that it was cool to see Tony Todd in an EarthForce uniform, there's something very wrong with the movie's plot, effects, characters & storyline.
I love Crusade, so I think you should give it a shot

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

It is very different in some respects from "Babylon 5", so I can understand your reluctance, Constable. However, consider that "Crusade" was only 13 episodes in length, so you won't be spending a tremendous amount of time with it. Besides, if you sat through all of the B5 movies, you can surely do the same with an aborted series.

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

Joining the conversation late, what's the take on Lost Tales. Just got the DVD's and was planning on seeing it. Will this cure my fix or leave me slightly disappointed like Legend of the Rangers did?

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

Low budget is the main problem. Also, false advertising. Right now it's more of a double Lost Tale than a plural entity.

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

If I can find a copy of the latest DVD at Blockbuster, I may rent it, but I don't want to buy it for more than I paid for the season sets (twenty bucks a box, versus the $22.99 price tag of The Lost Tales).

Man, the Shadow War came and went like no ones business. I'm glad we're back to the Earth stuff though, I did like that a lot more than the Shadow War.

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

lol @ the credits of ATONEMENT (pretty boring episode, saved by that).

Also, I think the funniest line so far came in RACING MARS when Sheridan and Lenny are in the lift

"Woohoo?"

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

I'm just about to finish Season 4, and I think this would've been the perfect end to the series, as opposed to going onto Season 5, which I have yet to watch - not sure were they're going to go with it from there.

It was really really great towards the end, moved nice and fast, was really exciting - I think one of my problems has been that it's been a bit slow moving at times, and the shadow war had a lot of build up, but not much in terms of action. The Earth War has been fantastic though.

Yeah, JMS apparently had the same problem.

Long story.

To use the Lord of the Rings analogy, now that the Scouring of the Shire is done, there's not much left to tell except the "where did they go from there" bits. In some ways season 5 covers that. It's 22 episodes with maybe only 15 episodes worth of story, though.

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

With all of its warts, S5 is still worth watching of for no other reason than to complete the series. Lindley's estimate is probably accurate. Most of the episodes are definitely worth watching, but then you can probably say that about most series' worst seasons.

Nice touch with the grayscale! Gives G'Kar a film noir, almost Mickey Spillane look there!
