Babylon 5

I recently acquired the whole set of Babylon 5, from Season 1 to 5. I have always loved it but watching it again and 1 episode after another in such a short time made it very intense.

I have just finished the Shadow War in the early part of the 4th season. So intense, so intense. I love the character buildup, the way the stories unfold. And I LOVE the ships. The Shadow ships looks like spiders,60135-358072-thumbnail.jpg the Vorlon ones looks like sotong (calamari). The Starfuries looks a lot like the X-wings in Star Wars. Then you've got the Babylon station itself that looks like a grinder.

Years ago, when Babylon 5 was a weekly series on TV, I used to rush home from wherever I was on Thursday nights. Church musicians' practices are on Thursday nights. Whenever it runs a little overtime, I will get agitated. Eddie will tell them to get it going cause Katy wants to go home to watch Babylon 5.

I had another fellow B5 fan too, Kenneth. He was Captain (Sheridan) and I was Ambassador (Delenn) Boy, we had a great time discussing the weekly episodes.

I know, I know, I have no life. Competition is just 2 days away. And I AM STRESSED because nothing major has gone wrong. De-stressing means to escape into space to this place called Babylon 5.

Didn't really like B5 compared to Star Trek coz it was just a stationary space station that couldn't move around. I prefer sci-fi ships with engines and hyperspace/warp capabilities hehehe.
YES! YOU REMIND ME OF DELENN!(In a weird sort of fashion...)

But you are missing the point. It IS a stationary space station. But look at those ships that comes to port. You will positively drool! Then if you know who Delenn is, then you would have watched it. Aquired taste, I suppose. People say, if you like B5, then you'll like Deep Space Nine. Not me, DSN could not hold my attention at all.
