“Babylon 5” Review

Babylon 5: Created by J. Michael Straczynski. With Mira Furlan, Richard Biggs, Stephen Furst, Andreas Katsulas. In the mid 23rd century, the Earth Alliance space station Babylon 5, located in neutral territory, is a major focal point for political intrigue, racial tensions and various wars over the course of five years.

With a new movie out (“The Road Home”) I figured I’d check out my purchased copy of B5 on Vudu, but then I remembered that they refused to upgrade it to HD when I had purchased it just days before the HD version dropped, so instead I ended up watching this one lunch period at a time on Tubi, which didn’t end up being as bad of an experience as I was thinking it was going to be. The interface was relative ok, was responsive, and I think I only needed to change the resumed episode once or twice, unlike D+ which seems to always forget where I left off on tv series.

As for the series, it’s still great and one of the best examples of long form story telling with huge character growth and major changes happening nearly every other episode for a large part of the series. We’ve unfortunately lost a large portion of the cast to the ravages of time, but man this was a great series to go back and rewatch.
