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

So far I'm not a big fan of season 5. I don't like Byron and his group, and I don't know why they had to have that background between Sheridan and Lochley.

Don't worry that Sheridan/Lochley background isn't really mentioned more than once or twice.

I don't think Byron is intended to be likeable. Someone Lyta falls for, but not someone who the audience needs to like.

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

I don't think many people are fans of season 5. I'm not one either. When I re-watch the show, I start from season 2, then 3 and 4, then 1, and as the last one — 5

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

I don't get it. It's a complete story season 1 to 5. Why not just watch it as it unfolds episode-to-episode? Season 5 has great stuff in it; good moments in the first few episodes, and the last 9 episodes are the best part of the entire show IMO. The rumors of people not liking season 5 are greatly exaggerated.

I agree. I wouldn't read a book out of order and B5 was designed as a novel for television. I love each season for different reasons but all of them are necessary.

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

Because I know the story, and could watch any random episode out of order, and still know what's going on.
I choose to re-watch starting from my favourite chapters, and thus enjoy it more. Your problem with that is not my problem

I think the best thing about season 5 are the opening credits. My favorite theme from the show.

No one has a problem with it. You could watch all the episodes upside down and backwards for all it affects me.

I still don't get it.

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

Annnnnnnd Done!
I finished Season 5 last night, and it's my least favorite season, but it had sione decent parts to it. Sleeping In Light was a nice ending to the series.
So the question to the group is, should I but the movie set? The version I had didn't have the Pilot episode, and the move set has the Pilot, plus several movies that I have heard are not that well done.

I'm a completest, so Yes, get the Movie set. Its all bonus B5, as the real meat is Seasons 2-4.

Great series!

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

Just started my first Trek with Babylon 5 this past Sunday. Already on episode 11. Lmao what people have been saying is true. There is a HUGE DS9 vibe on the way Babylon 5 (the station) is set up. Seems this is more an example of multiple discovery, rather than theft of JMS' 1991 pitch to Paramount. I recall Rick Berman saying that him and Michael Piller had approached Gene about doing a space station show during before season 5 of TNG. Around the time TUC was slated to come out.

So far so good. I like the show.

Lol on episode 17. There's a Minbari names Dukat? Lol that's hilarious.

Ironically, DS9 season 1 episode 17 parodies B5's dealing with Ambassadors by making Bashir the punching bag of their demands.

Finished Season 1 and now on Season 2. Good first season. I will say it kept my attention more than DS9's first season. I attribute that to B5 being more ambitious from the get go and world building it's mythos.

Already miss Commander Sinclair. Hopefully Captain Sheridan grows on me.

I think Sheridan/ Bruce Boxlightner really gives the show the last ingredient it needed to make it awesome.

Sheridan has refreshing energy and reminds me a little of Captain Kirk. His journey on the show is a good one, and makes him my favorite character.

Just thinking about it.makes me consider a rewatch this summer.
