    I love Babylon 5, but not this season.

    Without a doubt Babylon 5 is the greatest sci-fi series of the 20th Century

    After watching all of your SG,ST,Andromeda,Farscape,BG,Firefly,Expanse you will understand just how good B5 as TV series is and just how well implemented and executed season 1 is.Use to think b5 was good but over time i think it's excellent.It is without doubt one of better scfi operas out there and for good reason.

    I used to be addicted to this space opera years ago. Soap opera plus sci fi. Yummy.

    Beyond excellent! This was one of the first shows to do truly Epic, multi-season story-telling. Yes, the special effects look dated: yes, it's "slow" by modern standards. If all you want to see is cool effects, tons of explosions, and no story to speak of, skip this. If you enjoy character development, in a gripping setting, definitely watch this.

    This is sci-fi television at it's very best, it's best to view this series as a novel for television. The story is not presented as episodic but rather as story arcs, and what happens in one episode becomes more relevant in later episodes. The 1st season is the set up and introduction the universe and characters in the story so it might seem a bit slow. The 2nd season is where things really start going strong.

    One of the best sci-fi shows ever with brilliant plots and character arcs and relationships. Londo Mollari is probably one of the best written characters I have ever seen with one of the best character arcs ever. Some of the CGI special effects may not have aged that well, but this show is in my top 5 sci-fi shows.

    In my opinion, Babylon 5 started off rough. However, it ended up being the best science fiction television series of the 1990's. Possibly the best sci-fi series ever made. The layer upon layer of politics, intrigue, vast time frame, and more. No other sci-fi series has been quite as ambitious. I loved it.

    IF ever there was a show that deserved to be revisited after a number of years, it would be this one!! After all these years, I still come back to a Babylon 5 marathon when I need a good SciFi fix....

    Well written, and internally consistent. The acting ranges from competent to brilliant. And the special effects have held up pretty well. They won tons of awards when the show first aired.
