Babylon 5: Between the Darkness and the Light

I love the title of this episode almost as much as what happens in it.  The line is a part of the Minbari mantra from the Grey Council.  They stand between the darkness and the light.  Like so much else … Continue reading

Babylon 5: Intersections in Real Time

Intersections in Real Time may be one of the hardest Babylon 5 episodes to watch.  It’s gritty, dark and entirely devoted to beating Sheridan down and making him crack.  The residents of the Village could have learned something from Clark’s … Continue reading

Babylon 5: Moments of Transition

Zathras always made me laugh but one thing that resonated outside of the confines of Babylon 5 was his simple comment, “at least there is symmetry!”  Moments of Transition, a title that echoes G’Kar’s final words in season 3, shows … Continue reading

Babylon 5: Rumours, Bargains and Lies

As much as Babylon 5 ever goes for comedy, this is one of the best.  The show will attempt to pull off a few outright comedy episodes in the future (Zooty, zoot zoot!) but this one, for my money, does … Continue reading

Babylon 5: Conflicts of Interest

This is another episode with a perfect title because we really do see a number of different Conflicts of Interest throughout.  Susan wants to broadcast her “Voice of the Resistance” which is against the interest of Earth Gov, as she … Continue reading

Babylon 5: Lines of Communication

Having seen Babylon 5 in rapid succession, I had a different feeling about it than I believe Roger did.  In fact, I’ve seen this with everyone I know.  Until now, I’ve been perplexed about the different reactions people have to … Continue reading
