    Have you watched the Lost Tales movie yet? If not watch that.

    How many times have you seen the rest of the shows?

    No, it just finished downloading a few days ago. It's the only one of the movies I haven't seen yet.

    Crusade - 0
    DS9 - 1
    SG-1 - 2
    Atlantis - 2
    Lexx - 3, I think
    Farscape - 3 :o

    You haven't seen Lexx? Dood. Seriously. You need to watch that ASAP.

    And SG-1.

    I'm watching Lost Tales now. Really interesting so far. B5 is the only scifi show that really treats religion in general (and christianity in particular) with respect in the context of future technology and space travel.

    Very cool.

    To be honest, you can get away with skipping most of the movies. They don't really contribute to the story, and they aren't all that good, but worth seeing if you're a fan.

    Watch the pilot, The Gathering.
    Then watch S1, S2, S3, and start S4.

    Thirdspace (if you choose to watch it) goes between episodes 7 and 8 of S4.

    Finish S4.

    In The Beginning is a must-see, and it goes after the end of S4 and before the beginning of S5.

    Watch the first 21 episodes of S5, and stop before Sleeping In Light, the very last episode (#22).

    Watch River Of Souls, Legend Of The Rangers, and A Call To Arms.

    Then watch Sleeping In Light, and then The Lost Tales, and then Crusade comes after that.

    You really don't need to watch any of the B5 movies except for The Gathering, the rest are pretty meh except for Call to Arms and The Beginning.

    crusade is pretty epic fail. the episode order is all fucked up, the main character is meh, and the plot doesn't even come close to finishing. even the title sequence is shitty.

    I've heard Crusade is pretty bad, but haven't watched it. But the fact that Bill Lumbergh is the main character can't help.

    B5 is awesome.

    I predict you're going to really like it. Don't let the low budget put you off - the writing is brilliant.

    I see the movies were aired after most of the show, out of the order you specified.

    Is your order correct?
