I didn’t actually start watching it until season 3, just at the time when the entire story line was at its peak, which was certainly serendipitous.
I had a friend who had most of season 2 and the early season 3 episodes I'd missed on video, so I got to see those. Never really saw anything of season 1, though.
Point is, when Bab 5 was at its peak, we had some of the best sci-fi on TV. Even better than that, we had some serious and interesting treatments of spiritual and metaphysical issues. This was the era of season 3.
The episodes covering the subject of the mysterious Babylon 4 station was a superb treatment of time.
Unfortunately, everything started to go downhill after season 3 – and season 5 itself was just one big cheap fast let down. Whatever creativity J. Michael Straczynski experienced when writing earlier episodes, he seemed to completely lose it as quickly as he developed it.
Anyway, that's my appraisal of it - I simply can’t wait for the season 3 episodes to make it to DVD.
Okay, after that waffle, what were everyone's favourite bits?
