I discovered B5 when I was a teenager, but as I was not in charge of the remote control, I got to see only a few episodes. I tried to purchase on VHS (This was before DVD) to no avail, but I knew I HAD to see it.
A couple of years later when DVD emerged, I bought a copy of ‘In The Beginning’ and became hooked. Then followed season 1 on DVD, then 2, and so on. God bless DVD.
Having watched ITB first, I suppose you could say that there are plot spoilers and things that are not revealed till later seasons, but then again thats what B5 is like. In the flashback style of the show, we are shown a piece of something in season 1 and we don’t see it resolved until season 4. Until someone has watched all five seasons, not everything fits into place (and perhaps not even then).
Babylon 5 is, and always will be, one of the best pieces of science fiction the world has ever seen.nexus6Participant
Hope so, but I haven’t heard anything. I would be awsome if they took it back to the beginning and do The Butlarian Jihad, The Machine Crusade and The Battle for Corrin.
