This essay about the greatest sci-fi series ever is excellent and you should all go read it.

@petebrown Good essay. And definitely one of my all-time favourite best shows. I've rewatched several times (though not always all of Season 5).

@Miraz Heh—yeah, I will admit that my attention tends to wander a bit when it gets to Handsome Psychic Guy’s Rebellion.

@petebrown I got through it once, not sure I could ever watch all five seasons again, but I do kinda wish for a premium channel reboot with a better budget and cast (mostly to fix the worst of the cringe-y moments)

@SciPhi The production values and effects are a product of their times and there are some dodgy performances to be sure. I think I’m able to overlook a lot of that maybe as a result of having first watched the series when it originally aired.

@petebrown And it was literally hard to follow. Every week I’d check TV Guide to see what day and time the local affiliate had move it to—which often was 2:30am on a weeknight.

I learned how to program a VCR for Babylon 5. The kids with their streaming these days have it easy!

@Bruce We were pretty lucky in Cleveland. B5 aired every Saturday at 5 PM, followed by DS:9 at six.
