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

Then that means we are going to have an even better time with this one! YOu really should watch S5 more often. There are good reasons why it's not thought of too highly, but it has several episodes that are excellent for rewatching and discussion and so on.

Even if you skip the whole Byron arc, the last half of the 5th season rocks!!

You know...I really admire this episode. It confronts some fairly controversial topics - religion (a fairly controversial topic in the scifi community...and the death penalty/death of personality).
This is a very real reason why I became such a big fan of the series. I was never looking for a show that would sing the praises of religion. All I asked for was one that would not deny it's existence or consign it to the dominion of kooks, bigots and the uneducated. Yeah, that comes in large measure from myself being what one would call "religious".
This is a very good point. Because even DS9, which is the best of the Trek shows when it comes to religion, has Sisko very hesitant to accept his role as Emissary for several years, until he finally couldn't deny it any longer.

B5 does alot better with religion. Which episode is it that they have all of those religious people on the station??? I can't remember - like from season 1, right?

I don't care if it's religion or science or what. I just love a show that asks interesting questions.
To be honest, same here. So long as those questions don't try to come up with ALL of the answers.

Yeah...this is what I really need to do. Watch the last half more often.

I'm alot better at seasons 1 - 4.

There are even a couple of the films that I've only seen once!

BTW... I suggest you open up a separate window and go to "The Lurker's Guide" for this next episode - http://www.midwinter.com/lurk/countr...guide/101.html

Yes. That's what I thought. Didn't want to embarrass myself with a wrong title though. You guys are the pros!

Not I. Jan is far moreso than I am.

BTW... we only see Br. Theo in one more episode, towards the end of S3 - and he really pulls it off nicely!

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

Okay. I'm ready whenever you guys are. I'm so excited. Been looking forward to this one since it was picked. I'd seen the last one several times...but it's been years since I've seen this next one!
