Colorful Storyline; Great Potential
Crusade is a nice spinoff of the Babylon-5 lore. It is unfortunate that Crusade only ran one year because many of the foundational elements (i.e., characters, backgground, theme and plot) proved to be very solid for building a very powerful series. The music is very haunting for me...at times reminding me of Forbidden Planet with a Techno twist. Clearly many B-5 fans loved the entire concept of a "Techno-Mage" and Straczynski develops this line in the series. Indeed, imagine King Arthur, the search for the Grail, thrown into a space exploration format with a ticking bomb on the timeline (that is, earth needs an antidote to a deadly plague). Albeit, a little rough around the costumes (different uniforms on different episodes) and a tight-in-space set for actors and blocking, it still is nice romp in the universe. The acting is solid and the writing is very good. In short, well worth adding to one's DVD library of great Sci-Fi stories and even more so if you are a Babylon-5 devotee.Was this review helpful?
