it means nothing, but says everything!

In Norway we only had one TV channel, owned by the government and mostly running wholesome and cultural programming, until 1992 when the second COMMERCIAL broadcaster went on air (some lucky assholes had satellite TV)! When B5 started airing on that channel every Sunday at 2:30pm it was unlike anything we had ever seen before. The feeling of sitting with my whole family in the living room on Sundays watching Sinclair, Ivanova, the aliens and the CGI is still with me, because it was unlike anything we had ever seen on TV before. When B5 started coming out on DVD in the early 2000s I paid like $120 per season on Amazon to import them from the US, and I bought a DVD drive and MPEG decoder card for my computer to view them.

It's incredibly sad how many of the cast have died over the years, and even hearing of the challenges many of them faced while filming (drugs, alcohol, mental illness, hearing loss, right wing loon etc) has made an impact on me. I believe JMS saud he picked many of these people because nobody else would give them a job.

Who cares about fashion. Let's talk about that Daffy Duck poster.

It's his second favorite thing.

And the Pope is a woman.

When a pilgrim is begging Sheridan for a blessing, Garibaldi snaps, "He's not the Pope! He doesn't look anything like her!"

That was a thing in the very very bland Robocop TV show too. The new pope was Mary II, a black woman.
