This is exactly why you will never see a bluray set for Babylon 5. They have to be able to re-do the CGI in order for it to display properly in HD.


Warner Brothers has shown zero interest in spending the money to do that.

I’ve skipped some episodes that were less eventful...although they all advance the story at least a bit. Episode 16 of season 2 (In the Shadow of Z’Ha’Dum) is friggin huge! Have you gotten there yet?
Watching these shows, I’m reminded that Mr. Morden is one of the better antagonists in scifi. You just want to smack that guy around. LOL

Oh yes, I'm approaching the end of season 3!

Yeah you’re getting through it!
Did you ever get to see In the Beginning? The disk that’s on also has the pilot that’s not included in season 1. Things looked a little different on the pilot.

Morden was a fantastic character and it’s a shame that the actor who played the role seems to have disappeared. I haven’t seen him at all since B5 ended its run.

I saw him in an interview, some B5 retrospective I think, but I can't remember if it was on a dvd or what? Probably around the time that most recent "movie" came out.
That's the only time I've seen him that I can think of.

I started season 3. I love the intro for this year. I forgot about Marcus, a fan favorite.
I notice Londo gets a little more gray each season. Must be the stress. LOL

Vir is almost unrecognizable in season 4, apparently Furst lost some weight.

Stephen Furst struggled with his weight his entire life and he was constantly up and down. RIP :-(

Diabetes IIRC. He did a good job of knocking the weight off and held it off.

Correct. 60 is much too young to die. frown

I’m on season 5 and I just now remembered the B5/TRON/Boxleitner/Peter Jurasic connection: “Londo” was the accounting program Flynn beat in the ring game, then deleted by David Warner, who had a guest role in a B5 episode.
I bet there are some others.

The Tron/Babylon 5 connection is indeed very cool. Also, Peter Jurasik had a long running recurring role on “Hill Street Blues”. That role was probably what he was mostly known for before his role on Babylon 5.

First 5 or so episodes of season 5 were a bit dull but things are picking up again midseason!

F4UDash4, I'm interested in hearing what you thought overall, once you've finished watching it. smile

The first half of season 5 is mostly introducing Lochley and the telepath revolt under Byron. The second half certainly deals with much bigger universal concerns. smile

That assessment will only take a couple of more days at most wink

I'll say now that I have been very impressed, wish I had watched this years ( or a couple of decades) ago.

Once you are done with season 5 F4U, don't forget to watch the tv movie "A Call to Arms" which then leads into the very short lived spinoff show "Crusade".

Oh, also watch the tv movie "River of Souls" which takes place after season 5 and it's mostly a stand-alone story.
