Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Matthew Grimm
Babylon 5 was a strange animal when it premiered back in 1994. Stiffly acted and cheaply produced -- aside from some nifty computer animation -- the saga of a deep-space, multispecies United Nations looked early on like a half-baked rip-off of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. How it got from there to becoming arguably the finest sci-fi series on television can be traced to the ambitious five-year story arc of creator/writer Joe Straczynski. And if it "started to get good" in Season 2, Season 3 was when it became great. The show is a visual comic book in the best sense of the term, and if that initially meant somewhat two-dimensional characters, Season 3 sees them morphing into classic archetypes, as Straczynski weaves them all into his grand vision. The mystery of the creepy, unstoppable "Shadow" vessels unravels as Captain John Sheridan Bruce Boxleitner and his Bab5 team of Terrans and aliens discover that these menaces are agents of an ancient darkness that has spread invisible fingers into the very heart of Earth's government. The interspecies conflict between the Shadow-allied ambassador Molari Peter Jurasik and the freedom fighter G'kar Andreas Katsulas evolves into the series' true gem. The climactic point of Babylon 5's secession from Earth shows the depths of Straczinski's dedication to a truly epic cycle, wherein true heroes stand up against dutiful John Wayne standards. Indeed, the Shadow War's sweep, its roots in mythic old wars of older species Straczynski's overt slam at Malthusian capitalism is an ingenious twist blasts the show light-years beyond its episodic, Star Trek forebears. With a deft blend of Eastern "alien" philosophy, political intrigue, action, and special effects -- plus the occasional dose of humor, typically supplied by winsomely sexy Claudia Christian -- Babylon 5's third season crafted a brilliant new metaphor for the old light/dark struggle. Moreover, it vaulted the show into a rarified echelon of timeless sci-fi that includes Star Wars, Blade Runner, the Matrix franchise, and the Sci-Fi Channel's late, lamented Farscape.

    After the original Star Trek and Space 1999 this is the next must have sci-fi series.

    Babylon 5 is thoroughly engaging. It is cut above every other sci-fi series in recent history. You will not want to miss an episode once it grabs you.

    Babylon 5, great all the way and the ending wow!!

    If Sci Fi is your type of movie, then B 5 will be a good choice for you.
    Some people would say that it is a soap opera. It's true that there are times when the plot touches on the feeling side. But don't let it fool you, I think that there is a good balance between the fighting and the feelings. If your not sure you could always check out a short clip on you tube.

    Sheer Brilliance

    Babylon 5 Season 3 was when I really started watching and that was when things really did get great. The show seemed hoakey at first, but at its sparkling best other Sci Fi shows simply cannot compare and fall away completely. This is no DS9 or any other Star Trek rip-off. This is not mindless SciFi. The quality of writing, the depth of character and the challenges that they face mirror daily struggles and human nature perfectly. Don't be surprised if you see yourself in one of these characters, human or alien! It is here that G'Kar begins to really shine, spouting wisdom that leaves you breathless and often longing that the Universe would learn more quickly. As the threat of Z'ha'dum creeps in, we begin to see Straczynski's own appreciation for great writing with an undeniable homage to JRR Tolkien. These references are sprinkled in everywhere, but most obviously in the name and manner of the place of Z'ha'dum: a reference to Khazadum, deep in Moria, the once great Dwarven city, a place of Shadow and Fire and chaos. If you want good SciFi and you haven't experienced the thrilling world of Babylon 5, introduce yourself to it now! You won't be disappointed. Unless you're a Drakh, but that's for another season!

    Here's where it really gets interesting...

    It's a shame there isn't a setting higher than five stars. Yes, B5 really is the best television program (SF or otherwise) ever written, and yes, much of the credit goes to creator/producer/head writer J. Michael Straczynski. This is the first time a single writer has ever written all of any show's entire season, and the quality shines. How good? ''Severed Dreams,'' the episode in which B5 breaks away from Earth, won the coveted Hugo award (as another B5 episode did the previous year, making this another first). This is one of those rare instances where all the pieces came together to form a whole greater than the sum of the parts. The writing is superb, the effects eye-popping, the music evocative, the acting top-notch, and the production completely flawless (okay, the Zarg in ''Gray 17 is Missing'' was a bit over the top, but the story lines more than made up for it). It's not just ''good vs. evil,'' it's Order vs. Chaos, and is all the better for it. If you haven't already purchased this set, you owe it to yourself to quit reading this and go buy it, now, immediately! Your brain will thank you.

    Beware The Shadows And Stay Close To The Vorlon

    In season 3 of Babylon 5 the fuel is poured on. This season truly makes you sit up and pay attention. It is ripe with action and a sense of overwhelming odds. Nobody is safe for the Shadows prowl the space lanes and Earth is seduced by fascism. Oh and a security officer reveals his secret password. It's PEEKABOO. Drop Trek and try Babylon 5!!!
