Babylon 5 watch

-808f13b0-4975-4ee7-b292-78163f456aebI’m doing something I swore I’d never do: watch Babylon 5. Babylon 5 was an early attempt to tell serialized science fiction stories on TV during the mid-1990s, long before serialization became the norm. It was marketed as the “anti-Trek” at a time when my favorite show was Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

However, I’ve heard that the show is full of political intrigue and has great characters, so I thought it’d be worth a try. It’s also the only non-Trek TV show to not have been canceled prematurely (at least until Ron Moore’s Battlestar Galactica).

I plan to post reviews for each season as I finish them. It should be a fun ride. Whether you’re a “Lurker” (diehard B5 fan) or had never even heard of the series before, I hope you’ll join me as I take a look back at this important – if somewhat forgotten – science fiction show.

About Dom

I study constitutional politics in Southeast Asia and I occasionally work as a consultant for rule of law projects. I enjoy science fiction and fantasy stories, both as an escape and as a way to better understand our world. One day, I hope to write a book about politics in genre literature.
