I'm not quite left, either.
Actually, no. I can easily understand wanting - if not needing - a break. Especially when the last episode was as intense as "Z'ha'dum" and with all of your varied interest. No worries. There is a reason that this thread has existed in a few iterations in the DS9 forum: the show has staying power. That 4th season will still be there when you're ready to get back into it.
And we'll still be here waiting for your impressions. Brings back old times for us 'old timers' who had to wait weeks, months...not just for new episodes but to find out IF there'd be new episodes.
And it was uphill both ways in blinding snowstorms and all we had was paper sacks for our feet...
Paper sacks, huh? Lucky bastards...
^^ Yeah, I couldn't help but brag. <g>
some people (on this board, in this thread even) actually don't mind Grey 17... of course those are probably the same people who liked the lochley-half of the lost tales better than the sheridan-half...
The best thing about the Garibaldi story in 'Grey 17 is Missing' was havin' Freddy Krueger as a guest star.
*goes back to watchin' Friday Night Lights 'Wind Sprints' on DVD*
Ok, so I finished Season 1 yesterday (I'll post my thoughts on the episodes) and quickly downloaded season 2 (Yeah, I download them - I'll buy them on DVD if I think they're good enough in the end, like I did Galactica). WHAT THE HELL?!, they build up what happened at the battle of the line over S1 then at the end. The new guy seems a lot cooler cause he can wreck the Minbaris shit.
What happened to Sinclair? Did the actor quit?
Does this mean they'll forget about Sinclair going back in time? Or B5 blowing up? His wedding? Also they could've left out the title sequence for the first episode of S2, it confused be a bunch that Sinclair wasn't in it, and they were talking about a great war.
It was a good start to Season 2, just disappointing execution.
Actor Michael o'Hare ( Sinclair ) quitted in good terms. Studio and production team had throght a more intense lead character required. O'Hare agreed. But don't worry. Sinclair is not forgotten. You shall see. If anything producer JMS values , it is continuity of B5
I don't know how anyone could like ANYTHING related to Lochley better than ANYTHING related to Sheridan.
But then, I adore Sheridan, so that may 'perhaps' be coloring my opinion 'somewhat'.
1. Don't worry about Sinclair. That thread will be nicely tied up. In fact, it is one of the MOST nicely tied up threads of the entire show. But you won't see it for a while.
2. Just so you know, the title sequence changes for every season of B5. So you may as well get used to it.
I remember in the old days on this board we used to have whole THREADS dedicated to which title sequence was the best!
Trust me, you come to like it that way.
3. Buy the sets. You'll eventually buy them anyway, so don't waste your time and bandwidth.
I like the new title sequence, apart from the fact it says that there is a war this season.
If they quit on good terms though, surely he wouldn't have just been totally written out without an apperance? That irks me a bit, but it was a good start to the new season.
You'll see...You haven't seen the last of him.
lochley has several *ahem* qualities that give her a *er* leg up on the competition
that said, the lochley-half of the lost tales has that singular quality that characterizes the best of B5, namely, the its capacity to surprise and speak volumes on repeat viewings. her half is eminently more re-watchable than the sheridan-half, and the dialogue-rich (over rich?) nature means that there is a lot of material to chew on the second (or eleventy-seventh) viewing.
quantum mechanic consolation prizes
i guess i should expect such things from the poster formerly known as Vash...
good for you. glad to see not everyone has bought into the blind consumerism promoted by the media. it boggles the mind how people just piss away their money on trivia.
that said, B5 is eminently worth buying. i own several sets (all the better to proselytize with ). you might not believe that now, but as a great man once said: you do not understand. but you will.
To use the novel analogy that B5 was designed around, you're past the setting and character establishment, and now into the rising action section. But the climax is still some ways off.
Me too, the first time I saw it....I'd heard there were some B5 movies, and I wondered whether one of them was supposed to have fit in that gap.
But no, it's just an abrupt change, that's all.
Well, I finished Friday Night Lights - The First Season this afternoon. Great show, love every bit of it. If ya haven't seen it, ya should.
So, I'll be crackin' Babylon 5: The Complete Fourth Season - No Surrender, No Retreat open tomorrow.
^ This isn't a scifi show is it?
I only allow myself 1 non-scifi show at a time. Otherwise, I can't keep up with all the scifi and classic film, which are my priorities. That is, if I want to get anything else in life done besides sit in front of the TV.
Right now, my non-scifi show is taken up by Boston Legal. And it's not likely to be unseated anytime soon.
Friday Night Lights is not a scifi show. It's about the players, cheerleaders, coaches, and boosters for the Dillon High School football team. It really is a great show, and not just about football, that's just how all the characters are connected, through the team.
There's also a book (true story) of the Odessa-Permian Panthers called Friday Night Lights (good book, too).
And they made a movie based on the book a couple of years ago, also called Friday Night Lights, with Billy Bob Thorton & Tim McGraw.
I've got some errands to run today, so I'll be gettin' back to Babylon 5 this evenin'.
Alright, who has a screencap of G'Kar wearin' Garibaldi's "undercover disguise" from 'The Hour of the Wolf'?
'cause I need a new avatar!
