B5: One moment of perfect beauty.

In 2x14 There All The Honor Lies, Kosh takes Sheridan to witness one moment of perfect beauty.

In that vein, I'd like to share a similarly beautiful moment with you: enjoy

Re: B5: One moment of perfect beauty.

Oh, that was beautiful. Thank you for the link!

It also reminds me of Vir's speech in the final episode. "You know, Londo never liked the Pak'ma'ra...". I can't listen to that speech without crying.

Ahh, the dirty orange singing monks of Babylon 5. Always wondered what they did when they weren't hunched in darkness waiting for people to drop money in their pot.

B5 trivia. Who noticed that we heard the same music as from "There All The Honor Lies" in another episode?

For some reason I initially thought those "monks" were supposed to be Pak'ma'ra and that was way before seeing SiL. Maybe it was the hunched backs and heavy robes.

I don't remember the episode too well. Is it ever clear they weren't Pak'ma'ra? As I posted upthread, Vir's speech in "Sleeping In Light" makes me cry every time, and I always wondered if those monks in orange were Pak'ma'ra. Does anyone have an image?
