  • JMS has a warped sense of humor... I love it!

    I must admit the title of the episode piqued my curiosity, and later when it's revealed what it's a reference to... damn. JMS has a twisted sense of humor. "And now the savage beating to death of a Centauri official set to the bouncy happy tunes of gospel music with ironically appropriate lyrics". I love it. Kinda reminded me of A Clockwork Orange. And I'm not a fan of the things Londo forces Vir to do and the positions he puts him in, but you can't help but be impressed with Londo's political skills. He takes credit for Vir's underground railroading and twists it to use the Narn for his own purposes, gets rid of a dangerous opponent, increases his position and power, and avenges a loved one in one fell swoop. Damn. On a lighter note, the opening scene between Sheridan and Delenn was friggin' adorable, and the little joking/flirting thing they have going on though the whole episode is totally cute.
