...far across the universe, with tribes of humans who may have been the forefathers of the Egyptians... or the Toltecs... or the Mayans. Some believe there may yet be brothers of man who, even now, fight to survive, somewhere beyond the heavens. I'm rewatching this for the first time in probably decades. And, frankly, I like it a lot better than the new show. The writing is really good, and it's told in a serial format (more like Stargate SG-1 than Babylon 5, though - where there is a continuing story that ties together the episodes, but not so much that you're lost if you see them out of order). It's giving me new respect for the new show, too. Aside from screwing with the characters, you can tell they really put some effort into remaining faithful to the story, and they recreated major events from the original series in the new one. If you're a member on tv-vault.org, there are lots of seeds. Oh yeah, the original music blows away the new series.
