#4 Countdown: Babylon 5

Babylon 5
"I was there at the dawn of the third age of mankind.

"It began in the Earth year 2257, with the founding of the last of the Babylon stations, located deep in neutral space. It was a port of call for refugees, smugglers, businessmen, diplomats...and travelers from a hundred worlds. Could be a dangerous place -- but we accepted the risk, because Babylon 5 was our last, best hope for peace.

"Under the leadership of its final commander, Babylon 5 was a dream given form: a dream of a galaxy without war, when species from different worlds could live side by side in mutual respect. A dream that was in danger as never before, by the arrival of one man on a mission of destruction.
"Babylon 5 was the last of the Babylon stations. This is its story."

For the people whole have anything bad to say about Babylon 5, THERE'S A HOLE IN YOUR MIND!
(that never get's old)

The fact that the entire world hasn't experienced the show that is Babylon 5 is a crime against Humanity. I can rant about how this is the best space opera ever but what's the point? If you are reading this blog then you are already aware of this. I'm perpetually offended that this show is treated like the red-headed step-child of science fiction.

This show was well written and the actors were tip-top. There was war, romance and intrigue. Pen & Teller even made an appearance, what more can you ask for?

Was this show really considered the "red-headed stepchild of science fiction?" I always loved this show and assumed that everybody else. Well, I, for one, do not have anything bad to say about this show...plus, I don't want a hole in my head. ;o)

It didn't get as much exposure. It got cancelled before it's time and no one's doing anything to make a QUALITY movie or spin-off.
