    besides me and lowfat, and once in a while CrimsonVonDoom.


    I'm very disappointed in all of you. I found a really cool and interesting fact today about B5, and now lowfat and I are the only ones who know about it. We're cooler than you because of it.

    The series sucked back in the 80s...guess I just couldn't bring myself to suffer through it again in the 00s.

    Since it a) didn't get made until 1994, and b) didn't suck, you're probably thinking of something else.

    i'm picky about my sci-fi obsessions, that's why :p

    honestly though, i have never really seen an episode, what is it about?

    'The time is the 23rd century. In the wake of a devastating interstellar war, the survivors decide to build a space station where representatives from various races can meet and resolve their differences peacefully. The station is intended to be the galaxy's last, best hope to put an end to violence. Its name is Babylon 1.

    It gets blown out of the sky.

    Undeterred, the advocates of peace build Babylon 2, and then Babylon 3.

    Both get blown up as well.

    So they build Babylon 4. And it doesn't get blown up!

    Instead, within hours of completion, it just inexplicably ... goes missing. But we're sure to track it down, real soon now.

    In the meantime -- welcome to Babylon 5.'

    Just take my word. It is one, if not the best, sci-fi's ever written. Acting is weak in some areas but the story definately makes up for it.

    "It was our last, best hope for peace. It failed. Now it is our last, best hope for VICTORY. Because sometimes, "peace" is just another word for surrender."

    the original battlestar galactica started in the late 70's actually and was good for its time. the new series has been great and you suck for not broadening your views.

    oh man....no...not when compared with ST:TOS, BG just stunk! I tried to get into the other series but it just didn't appeal to me.

    Ya know...it's actually ok if we all like different things. :p

    Sure it's ok if we don't like the same things, but it's kind of weird. :o

    The new Galactica is really really good.
