Same here. This first viewing of B5 was quite a ride for me as well. I certainly didn't like it quite as much as you did (there are plenty of things, even in the later seasons, that make me just scratch my head, groan or go ), but I still consider myself a fan. There were plenty of episodes that I thought were rated rather highly (an oddity for you), but there were also some I thought you were too harsh to - so rest assured. As for the characters - definitely Londo and G'Kar are the best (for obvious reasons) followed very closely by Lennier (for reasons I stated upthread). As for the worst - Galen, Byron and Ivanova. I still can't stand any of them. So, it's on to Stargate now, right?
