Before Bablyon 5 went. behind the paywall it was running on Comet TV. Two episodes a night and the occasional marathon on weekends.  I wish I had dvr’d it.

Just here to say that Babylon 5 is better today than it was when it aired and you owe it to yourself to watch this show. Season 3 might be the best season of ANY sci fi show. Amazing.

G’Quan wrote, “There is a greater darkness than the one we fight. It is the darkness of the soul that has lost its way. The war we fight is not against powers and principalities, it is against chaos and despair. Greater than the death of flesh is the death of hope, the death of dreams. Against this peril we can never Read more

I mean we all get different things but I thought it was a moving portrayal of grief piling up on someone. Read more

Babylon 5 was and is an amazing show. It somehow manages to be a dark story of the future but still show great optimism. It also deals with real world concepts better then most sci-fi. We learn how human religion evolved after first contact. We learn what religion and politics really look like for other races. Read more

Nah there are several really good episodes in season 1. There are a few guides that spell out what to watch and what to skip

It’s definitely time for a Babylon 5 rewatch. It’s not perfect at all, but still so wonderful and ahead of its time. Also, the deep sincerity feels really satisfying now. I need some non-ironic fun.

When I first read Vision back when I was a kid, it was in this white form. Was wondering if/when MCU was going to adopt it, and they did it, the sons of bitches!

Now I think it’s clear that the reason why Vision’s body started disintegrating and was sucked back into the Hex when he tried to walk out of it, is because he was created within it. He is technically a creature of the Hex, and without it, he will literally fall apart on a molecular level. It’s very possible that Read more

When Vision was rebuilt in the comics he was white. It was canon. Nothing to do with Ultron.

My read on Wanda’s drive through Westview was that buying the home and moving there was a plan she and Vision had made before Thanos. That’s the sort of major plan a couple makes together, not something one person naively springs on the other. Read more

I feel like not enough people are picking up on the fact that pre-Hex Westview was ... a kind of sad, dying dump of a town? The gazebo was boarded up, most businesses were closed, the pool was condemned... The people also seem downcast. I didn’t realize that I had assumed the more recent modern sitcoms were close to Read more

Agatha wasn't manipulating things at the creation of sitcom Westview. She says she was attracted by what Wanda had done.

We now know how Hayward was lying with that edited footage of Wanda coming to SWORD. She didn’t break in. He let her in. He showed her the body. He let her come near it. And then she left. Without it. She never took Vision’s body. SWORD had it all this time. Read more

because the only thing that survived the explosion other than the kids was their television that somehow managed to remain powered and playing The Dick Van Dyke Show. Read more

Honest question, why would White Vision be Ultron? Like yeah, Ultron created the Vision body for himself, but if after Thanos took the Mind Stone it caused Vision to die and Ultron didn’t immediately re-emerge, how would Hayward and SWORD’s actions bring him there? Read more

Even though it’s more than likely that the two witches will end up battling, you can also see significant traces of the adversarial friendship that Wanda and Agatha have in the comics in the way that Agatha’s torture here is also a very intense, almost therapeutic, experience for Wanda. Read more
