Critic Reviews for Babylon 5: Season 4

Audience Reviews for Babylon 5: Season 4

  • Nov 23, 2021
    Still in a roll from season four, such a fantastic season for B5.
  • Mar 05, 2021
    Amazing, best sci-fi ever made
  • Dec 27, 2020
    Sci-fi Legend of 20th century, had tremendous impact on the tv industry, with season length story arcs and universe building. 2020 and it's still a role model, still not surpassed by most of the modern sci-fi shows. JMS was playing 4D chess in 1993 while others are still playing checkers.
  • Sep 23, 2020
    The Mars plotline is distracting, but not entirely without merit. The series comes to a worthy conclusion, though without ending for good.
  • Mar 23, 2019
    Production issues mean this isnt quite as good as seasons 2 and 3: some of the space combat scenes just have far too much stuff in them. Regardless, the storytelling and acting are top notch
  • Nov 26, 2018
    Season 4 continues the show's excellence. 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.
  • Sep 15, 2018
    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....
  • Jun 16, 2018
    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.
  • Jun 04, 2018
    Season four the best season of the series. Even after the shadow war it is still great.
  • Jan 03, 2018
    Sad the network canceled it and forced the series to end in a rush when the creator had mapped it out for 5 years and then was green-lit again after it was finished.
