The most common gripe I hear about B5 is that they should have just stuck with 4 seasons, and there I can agree. It was clear that things were scripted up to that point but afterwards, it was all just on the fly it seemed. The producers were never sure if they were going to get renewed or not for another season and they didn't want to leave the storyline hanging so everything was crammed into season 4. If they had the information ahead of time, the shadow war would have resolved itself in 4 and the war to free earth and its colonies in 5. It's sort of sad really. I would have liked a much more in depth look and development that another season would have allowed for the war for earth. It always seemed too rushed and compact for the massive details that were involved.
Anyway, like with my venture through Highlander previous, all of this would not be possible without the laptop. It's actually given me the ability watch all of these series that I had downloaded ages ago but never got around to seeing. As I type this, I've located the disc for Firefly and am finally going to watch it. I've been hesitant all these years because of the obnoxiously shrill fanboys/girls telling me that I just had to watch it because it's the greatest show on earth. Nothing gets more ornery as much as someone telling me I have to do something or have to like something. Still, it is past time I gave it a shot. I think after I finish with firefly I'm going to watch all of 24. I've never seen so much as a single episode before but I'm looking forward to it. Afer that? Who knows...maybe all of Farscape.
