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.

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!!!

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.

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 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!
