View Full Version : Do we have any Babylon 5 fans in the house?

Just curious ;) And by fans, I don't just mean people who watched the odd few episodes and thought it was pretty cool. I mean people who've seen the thing right the way through (as it's meant to be seen) and realise it's one of the greatest television shows ever :)

The Season 2 DVD set comes out in the UK on Monday, so I'm in the mood for some Babylon 5. And just in case you didn't know, my name comes from B5 too.

So, are there any other fans out there? Or am I one of a kind?

I always liked it when I got to see it, and *wanted* to watch it all the way through, but we didn't have Sky/cable and I was too young at the time to watch it at the stupid hours that it was on on terrestrial :p :(

I might just have to get the DVDs of it, though... So you can consider me a convert if you like, One :p :D

(And btw, any luck on getting your brother [ed_silvergun, on here] to come back and post? I've not seen a thing from him, and the place is a lot better than it's been in ages, if it was the atmosphere that was keeping him away... We need more odlbies back =( )

I watched quite a bit of B5 (not all of it), and I liked it. Good series. I'm getting the second series for my wife - she already has the first one on DVD (from me), so I thought it would be a nice anniversary pressie at the end of June... :)

Is that one of those presents that you get people, but it's really for your own enjoyment? :p

And Wacky_Baccy, I'll have another word with him about it. He's back at university now, so, in other words, he should have a tonne of time on his hands :)

the first B5 episode I ever watched I thought was stupid. it was when Susan Ivonova was pretendint to have sex, dancing around that alien. then they started showing them on TV from year one one, I watched and became a fan. they rpeated the series, I taped all of them. I just started watching Crusade I have all 13 episodes, then they cancel it. I am surprised their is no strong B5 presence on winmx. I want to collect music from the show, without buying all those cd's. eventually when all 5 years is in DVD box sets I may buy them money and technology willing. The show is very different that paramounts star trek was and is. special FX story lines. some of the acting is just bad. like Bester aka checkov from star trek, but he wasn't good in star trek either.
babylon 5 was my fav sci-fi series.
next was star trek DS9
then there is the new Enterprise
TNG years 3 to midway into year 6
(years 1, 2and 7 were awful)
last was Voyager.
the doctor was great some was great
7 of D Cup was shameless sex hussy.
I think if she looked Borg her acting talents
might have been noticed more than her rocket bazoomba's

and as most times some characters
are lame no matter what
