Babylon 5 turns 20 aka I feel old...

Post by Havok » Tue Feb 26, 2013 12:02 pm

There is a really good article posted over on io9.com about the 20th anniversary of Babylon 5's pilot and the series itself. There's some really good eye opening info in there that some of you may not know.

I hear ya.
Understanding is a three-edged sword.
Your side,

Same here. I appreciate the heads up on the article - nice to see a little love for B5.

There is no love for Babylon 5.
It is the work of the devil.
A space based sitcom, I would rather watch Seinfeld and that's saying something.

It was certainly funnier than Babylon 5, which to me at least was only cringe worthy material..

I was talking about B5 - Seinfeld was hit-or-miss for me.

I understand your POV - I have several family/friend types who love other science fiction properties but never took to B5. From their comments, they couldn't get past the first season, or they had issues with all the drama.

For me however, it was pure awesome!
