    The series continues after its climax and expectedly goes nowhere. Still boasts some of the strongest individual episodes.

    The whole series is more of a 5 star really. So why did I give it four? Well... it's not in HD. Hard to watch lower quality picture anymore. I've gotten spoiled. But mostly the switch of lead female at end of season four annoyed me. It's not that her replacement was bad. Just that the unplanned change disrupted the rapport and flow I was used to. Changed the dynamic. I blame production not the actress. Nothing wrong with asking for a bit more after four years. The least they could've done is met her rep and said no in person and been tactful about it. Better yet meet in the middle and give her something. But overall great series.

    The writer and creator was exhausted, and it shows in this season: the plot gets much looser. Some of the casting is highly questionable. The old favorites continue to grow and develop . And it is still definitely worth watching!

    Season 1 is alright. Seasons 2,3 and 4 are amazing! Season 5 is terrible... just watch the last episode in season 5 >.<

    Season 5 seemed a bit disjointed after the show wrapped up its shadow war story-line. This was more due to the fact that the show's creator thought the series was going to be canceled ... and then it wasn't. Season 5 then, was a rush job to create more of the Babylon 5 story. It still works, but I feel it's too bad that the shadow war story line couldn't have been stretched out to cover all of season 4 AND 5. As it is, season 5 is still solid and honestly the story lines introduced in season 5 could have been explored much further if the series had continued past its 5 year run.

    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....
