My Sci-fi Crew - Babylon 5?

You scored as Babylon 5 (Babylon 5). The universe is erupting into war and your government picks the wrong side. How much worse could things get? It doesn’t matter, because no matter what you have your friends and you’ll do the right thing. In the end that will be all that matters. Now if only the Psi Cops would leave you alone.

Well this is strange because I've never watched Babylon 5...

Instead I've got a hankering to be in Moya's crew, although Serenity would be my first choice.

Bab 5 is great - I only started watching it last year and up to Season 3!

I got Millenium Falcoln as my crew. I'm tempted to do it again because I really want to be part of Cowboy Bebop!

B5 had some moments of genius, some fantastic characters and a lot of truly terrible dialogue. It's interesting as well to see how the styling and lighting etc got worse as they lost budget. The final season everyone looks like someone from a day time soap opera.

Bab 5 is one of those shows where it took a while to warm up - the first season is fairly dire. From there, though, there is NOTHING else that competes with it in scifi (IMO, of course) for plotting complexity. Little things turn out to be hugely significant - two series after they turn up. I loved it.

B5 is going to have to wait in line for a while - BSG to finish, then first 2 seasons of Buffy!

I have vague recollections of it because a couple of the actors in that pic look familiar.

What's the general premise?

Ghet, the idea of little things coming back later is one of the things I love about Douglas Adams' writing, so sounds like B5 will appeal too.

Ghet said...

foo, okay. Babylon 5 is a space station, strategically placed as they always are, trying to be neutral. They get sucked in to a war between the Shadow (Evil) and the Vorlons (who also turn out to be, well, really nasty bastards). There's a heap of philosophical musing, a nasty psicorps, noble Rangers... and all this is a huge over-simplification. At the time, Bab 5 raised the bar for space-battle effects to the level you see in BSG and SG now.

The guy who heads the station from series 2 on may look familiar because he's Bruce Boxleitner from Scarecrow and Mrs King...

Span said...

Oh oh! I was a MASSIVE Scarecrow and Mrs King fan!! That'll be why.

Thanks for the explanation, sounds like I am going to have to become addicted to that once I've got BSG and Buffy out of the way!
