Re: Babylon 5 - I'm finally going to do it

One of my summer projects was to watch B5 from start to finish. I only watched the eps, not the movies or the original pilot. Absolutely great show. I cried at the end.

Re: Babylon 5 - I'm finally going to do it

I think everyone cries at the end.

Anyone who says he doesn't simply isn't secure with his sexuality.

What has crying got to do with sexuality? I don't understand that comment.

I was wondering if it had something to do with the phrase "Cry like a girl." I could be wrong though.

Okay, I know that expression (though again sex has nothing to do with crying) But he said "sexuality" not "sex"...

Re: Babylon 5 - I'm finally going to do it

It was meant to be a quip on the really bad stereotype.

You know:

[FRATBOY] "Hey, real men don't cry! Only pussies and fags do." [/FRATBOY] etc. etc.

I apologize if it came off badly.

Oh, right, yeah now I get it. I wasn't too familiar with the stereotype for some reason. Sorry. I knew it was a joke thanks to the icon, but I didn't understand.

More to the point, if you don't cry at the end, you really don't get the show.

For what its worth, I sobbed all the way through, first time. The speech before the toast (about Pak'ma'ra) and the final five minutes still make me cry.

Re: Babylon 5 - I'm finally going to do it

Just a friendly reminder, (It's been great so far) that let's not talk about episodes in season 5 since I'm still on Season 1. Don't really want to be spoiled. Like I said, it's been good so far, but want to be careful. Thanks.

Neither do I. I finished watching the show yesterday straight through for the sixth time, and I didn't cry at the end.

According to Robert Smith, boys don't cry.

However, the phrase and joke might have worked better if Clegg used the word "masculinity" instead of "sexuality."

Re: Babylon 5 - I'm finally going to do it

And the Sky Full of Stars

Wow. That episode was both awesome and frustrating at the same time. I thought they were going to go all the way and reveal what happened in those 24 hours before the Minbari surrendered and they didn't. That was the frustrating part. The good part was all these hints we have of the Gray Council and Delenn's involvement are building to something big I have a feeling and that's really the storyline this season I might remember the most. Yeah you have your Cintuari and Narn negociations, but from the very first episode with the "There's a hole in your mind" to now and realizing later on that Delenn does grow Hair, man what the hell happened in those 24 hours.
