Indeed. B5 had a charm to it, a mystery, and intrigue that always drew me like stink on dog doo. It had the perfect combination of addictive space battle action and drama intertwined just too, too well. I almost pissed my pants when the Minbari surrendered at the battle of the line. My eyes glossed over when they blew up B5.
Old school BG had me fixated as a kid and was what got me hooked on Sci-Fi. They lost me too on the new one though. Showing how badly the humans got spanked I think ruined it for me. It was as if there was no point after that. I mean, c'mon, it's totally like what Star Trek would have been like had they let the Borg be who they really are. Humans in the old BG weren't seemingly always running with tucked tail either.
Like Star Gate the movie but never could get into the series. Never saw Firefly. Used to watch Seaquest quite a bit though!
