    LOL! Didn't know you were a Babylon 5 fan, too! :)

    Yeah, I rebuilt the BBS recently, so no back messages. So the last message traffic was from May 2019.

    I guess for a show that went off the air over 20 year ago, I guess I can see this place being a ghost town.

    I'm rewatching the series myself, about halfway through Season 3.

    Same thing here. Found that after all this time...enjoyed the show much more
    by being able to relax without any interuptions while it was in 1st run. Much more enjoyable being able to pay attention to everything going on.

    It's interesting how that the first two seasons were pretty much lead ins to Season 3.

    I couldn't have imagined watching it for 2 years before it got interesting. Watching it now is so much better.

    I remember reading back then that JMS had a 5 year story arc for it, so that long build up made sense to me.

    Hello everyone,

    Hopefully, there is still some B5 fans active on Fidonet. It's been about 10 years since I watched Babylon 5 for the first time. It is arguably the best Sci-Fi ever written for television, but the later standalone movies and spin off series had been disappointing. Does anyone remember Crusades? In any case, what are your thoughts on a B5 reboot? Heck, it seems everything has been rebooted at least once these days. Why not B5?

    I regret not watching it when it first aired as I was Star Trek loyalist back in the day. However, never too late I suppose.

    Kevin.

    Reboots are hit and miss. I'm not really sure it could be done and still be Babylon5.

    As far as Crusade, it's been years, but I thought that it showed promise.

    But then again, I think they pull the plug on a lot of shows too soon.
