    Babylon 5 is great if you like grown up TV. The characters have to think
    and take difficult moral decisions. The series is one big story lasting
    5 years.

    Only maybe the middle 2 or 3 of which are any good...

    Well, I thought B5 was lousy when it aired. I used to record them for a
    friend of mine who didn't get UPN or whatever they ran on here. So I saw >>> enough to see I didn't like it. Hell, the first Captain alone was a show >>> sinker. And the video FX. And the fact that lying liar JMS was lying about >>> getting Robert Culp.
    For a kind of sequel to the Twilight Zone episode? I seem to remember
    the problem there was Harlan Ellison.

    Outer Limits "Demon With a Glass Hand" and, yeah, we'll never know whose fault all that was.

    Well, I had the right title in my head.

    I realized this as soon as I saw the ending to the ep with
    the bird people.

    I thought his beef with JMS was over CAPTAIN POWER.

    No. It's from when he destroyed Spider-Man.

    I must have quit reading Spiderman at the time, but I loved his Man of Steel run.

    Babylon 5 wasn't bad. There were some subpar episodes ("Gray 13 is
    Missing" and most of Season 5) but overall it was superior to most SF on
    TV at the time.

    I did read (probably on UseNet or Similar) that JMS did originally planned/storyboard Bab5 to have a five year arc, but then, early in year
    four, he heard that year five was a no-go, so tried to squeeze some of
    the year five storyline into year four .. which, sort of, completed the storyline.

    Then the network *did* confirm year five funding, so JMS had to come up
    with a year five storyline!!

    Of course, this could just be here-say!!
