Watched Sleeping in Light last night...
Took awhile, but got my wife all the way through Babylon 5. Sleeping in light...

Its been nearly 9 years since I watched it, which means its been almost ten years since I saw the series.
Sometimes I hear the music in my head.
For instance, every time I drive at my Grandparents town, their roads are perfectly straight, North, East, South and West, crossroads in the main square of town. I hear Sheridans voice "Pick a direction, no destination...a sunday drive." Been so long since I watched SiL that I forgot it was him saying it. (I have a hard time watching SiL, it's...hard to watch...just saddening)
Such a great series.
Also, on an unrelated note: I carpool with the friends that introduced me to B5 from time to time. Since I finished Season 5, the quality of the conversation in the car has gone down significantly.
What struck me is how contemporary the subject matter seems to be. Season 1 Eps like War Prayer and The Sky Full of Stars definitely convey a certain message in our current political climate.
Also, I am thinking that Lines of Communication may actually be the worst episode of the series (gasp!). Its really annoying when suddenly apparent limitations in technology are used to drive the action - "We've drifted closer to the Drakh ship" <-- In a ship that utilizes gravatic drives drifts? Lenner indicates that it would take 5 years to learn a particular maneuver, but he can program the computer to do it in a few minutes?
My son is only 6 months old...he probably needs to be 10 or so to really appreciate it. We'll see...
I'd anticipate at least 2-3 more watch through before then. Next time, I don't skip any episodes for my wifes benefit. (we stuck with the more plot centric or critical ones first time through)
Bill Mumy said that the guy playing the Minbari who was working with the Drakh kept forgetting his lines, and Mumy felt sorry for the guy playing the Drakh, since he was moving around all weird so much and they had to do lots of takes.
