Babylon 5: the scifi TV show that refused to die, a retrospective (video).

Are you ready to take a trip back to the year 2258? Look no further than Babylon 5, as examined by damn fine Stam Fine, the science fiction epic that captivated audiences for five seasons and paved the way for the use of computer graphics in major TV shows. With a grand story and a fairly small budget, Babylon 5 was a game-changer in the world of science fiction television.

The series, created by J. Michael Straczynski, starred Bruce Boxleitner, Claudia Christian, Tracy Scoggins, Jerry Doyle, Richard Biggs, Patricia Tallman, Peter Jurasik, Mira Furlan, Andreas Katsulas, and Stephen Furst. The cast brought to life the complex and nuanced characters that made the show so beloved by fans.

But the story of Babylon 5 didn’t end with the series’ finale. The show spawned several telemovies, including “In the Beginning,” “Third Space,” “River of Souls,” and “A Call to Arms,” which explored different aspects of the B5 universe and gave fans even more to love.

One of the spin-off series was “Crusade,” which added Carrie Dobro, Gary Cole, Daniel Dae Kim, and Peter Woodward to the mix. Although the series was short-lived, it provided a new perspective on the B5 universe and gave fans more of what they loved.

In addition, there were two later attempts to tell B5 stories in new formats: “Legend of the Rangers” and “The Lost Tales.” While these entries into the B5 universe didn’t quite have the same impact as the original series, they were still enjoyable for fans.

In conclusion, Babylon 5 is a true sci-fi epic that captivated audiences for five seasons, and beyond. The series, telemovies, spin-off series and new attempts to tell B5 stories all added to the rich and complex world of Babylon 5. It’s an entertaining journey that is worth taking again and again!
