I started a marathon of this show about a week ago and and am about to finish the second season. I love this show.
Two things...

One. Is there some sort of clause in the contract for every sci fi show that stipulates that in order to be made it must at some point include Jack the Ripper?

Two. When Kosh saved Sheridan from his fall, and all the various beings looked upon his true form and said aloud the name of the deity they were perceiving, that set into motion in my brain a chain of events that resulted in my forgetting the Vorlon's name temporarily and hearing Sheridan call him Gosh after being saved. I was very amused for a moment.

It doesn't help that boxleitner comes across as so homespun and aw shucks charming at times.

In that case it's really, really too bad there was no B5C.

I had a dream last night that I won a call-in trivia show hosted by Alex Trebek. My final question required me to know that Babylon 5 had a crossover episode with Seinfeld. I know this didn't happen, but... it's too bad.

"It's the Summer of Kosh!"

"This spoo is makin' me THIRSTY!"

Jerry walks up to a Vorlon. It stares at him for a moment before saying *Jerry. Hello.*

"Why is this Narn wearing an eyepatch?"
"Emperor, you said you wanted his eye..."
"I said I wanted RYE! Marble rye!"

Bester and Jerry look down to see no sign of the shipping containers full of Dust, save for a mail-carrier's bag. They meet each other's eyes and say in unison, "NEWMAN!"

Close on a landing bay, empty save for a single shuttle. They climb in. Sheridan tries to start the engine. It fails.

You could recycle the script for the episode where George is mistaken for a right wing extremist and stuck in a private limo with his followers. "The Minbari uses the Narn as muscle in their war against... human colonies must expand, "

And have George's father in the line up of earth religions with the Festivus poll.

Watched Sleeping in Light today, finishing off the rewatch I started back in March.

It is a little over 20 years since Into the Fire was transmitted (February 1997); Sleeping in Light is set around the same relative time, and yet it has seven of the principal cast survive. In real life that number is only four.

Peter Jurasik is still alive, although Londo was not by this point.

Oh, and Bill Mumy and Pat Tallman but they're not quite so central

Mumy was main credit cast for the entire run, he's definitely central.

Of the original S1 main credit cast Andrea Thompson is also still alive.

Well, it's almost a new year, and you know what that means - time for a new opening monologue.

And we all need to film new character cards. What do we think, rotating-on-a-plinth style like G'Kar?
