Babylon Motherfuckin' 5

It is our last, best, hope for peace - Babylon 5.

Babylon5_01.jpg

I've been watching this shit on Hulu lately, and it is very neat. The whole show is based around preconceived story arcs and has a pretty novel approach to the whole 'science fiction space stuff' jazz. It is also so '90s you will shit plaid after watching it.

It's all full of psychic bitches and aliens with brow ridges and Minbari and silly makeup and crazy hair and it isn't quite star trek but it's close

it's Babylon 5

    First season was pretty good.

    Seasons two and three were fucking incredible.

    season 4 is better than season 2

    season 5 starts out super awful then gets decent by the end


    But thats mostly because JMS stuffed like 50% of the season 5 story arc into the end of season 4 cause he thought he was getting cancelled

    Yeah.

    Its been so long since I've watched them that I couldn't remember if it was 4 or 5 that sucked, so I erred on the side of caution.


    Man, I was so sad when I head that the actor who played G;Kar had died. Him and Londo were the best.

    my favorite of the opening monologues was from season 3

    sort of spoilery I guess so here we go tags
    The Babylon Project was our last, best hope for peace. It failed. But in the year of the Shadow War, it became something greater. Our last, best hope. For victory.

    The overarching plot line is by far the best thing about B5


    They also had the best episode titles.

    I've only seen the first episode B5 and only the first episode of DS9. B5 won so hard.

    Is the whole series available on Hulu? I might have to rock that real soon.

    This show had some of the worst actors for one shot characters, even when the main cast was usually very good.

    And for some reason, Space Penn and Teller episode.

    I'm actually curious:

    Does anyone here have a working theory of why this series continued after Season 4?

    No, not some cynical sarcastic answer. The answer is not "cocks." I really have been trying to figure this out for years now, and no real explanation has come to light.
