  • Lyta is a b*tch

    Wow, Lyta turned into a b*tch! I realize she's trying to raise money to be a terrorist, and I know that Vir has grown a lot since the first season, but still, bullying Vir is like kicking a puppy. Things are going to crap on Centauri Prime. Londo has weird experiments done on him, the Regent reveals what the hell has been going on, with the weird Shadow tech in charge of their fleet, provoking everyone into war and then leaving the defenses down. And Delenn and Lennier are attacked in hyperspace. Lovely. The one bright point of the episode was the conversation between Sheirdan and Delenn where it comes up that he bought her some lingerie and she thinks it's silly. Honestly, the thought of Delenn in lingerie is just... really weird.
  • Movements of Fire and Shadow (1)

    Movements of Fire and Shadow (1) was a perfect episode of Babylon 5. I really enjoyed watching this episode because it had a lot of character and plot development as well as action, drama, and mystery. Lochley was recording in personal log when she learned that the White Star Fleet had been given orders to engage in the war. It was interesting to see Vir escape from his quarters, and the mission Vir sent Dr. Franklin and Lyta on was interesting and vital. Delenn and Lennier run into trouble and their fate is uncertain. The Narn secretly align with the Drazi and Londo finally gets out of the prison cell to find that the Royal Palace is not what it seems. Upon finally seeing the Regeant, who was crazy and prophetic, Londo learned the truth though he has not grasped the whole picture. Centaur Prime falls under attack. Londo's future is happening before our eyes. I can't wait to watch the next episode!!!!!!!
