Having re watched it last year I thought that B5 still stood up as a great series (especially season 3 and Londo's descent into the Narn Genocide) but it hadn't aged all that well. Season 5 was shit because JMS had written it as a 5 season series. I think it was Warners who told him they wouldn't fund a 5th season at the start of filming the 4th season, so he had to cram 2 seasons worth of plot into that 4th season This is why the Shadow / Vorlon war ends so abruptly. The sci-Fi season picked it up again and he pretty much had to write the 5th season from scratch, hence is was so crap!|
BSG pisses all over B5 though. It's better acted and better realised.
