Babylon 5 Reboot


Are there any B5 fans here?
I'll be honest, I never managed to get into the show, myself, but I know it had a decent following.

Anyhoo. The CW (Smallville, The Flash, Arrow, etc) are doing a reboot. (!!?)
The original writer's apparently showrunner, or at least is heavily involved.

Like you Jay, I never got into it. Watched an episode or two BITD but that really was it. Having grown up with Star Wars the supposedly groundbreaking CGI (allegedly done on an Amiga IIRC) really pulled me out of the show - they looked awful.

Yes, i have watched the series few times.
The first round i haven't seen the beginnings, the next round i missed few episodes, then 2019 i watched them all.

I liked the CGI's and the story.

Not sure how the reboot is going to be. I do not like the idea of watching a serie without the original cast.

I've not gone back to watch it since its original broadcast but I did enjoy it at the time. It was a little slow and hardwork at times but I found Deep Space 9 the same in that regard - the problem of focusing about life on a station I guess. The later series developed a purpose and moved things along and it became some proper sci-fi fantasy at that point.

I really liked B5, but over in the UK the TV schedule was really strange, and that they actually played the last season during a TV morning show.. not great when the whole 5year show has the main story throughout it.

Also I liked the CGI, the fighter ships were great and actually moves with proper physics!

As to a reboot, like any reboot it could be good or poor..
