  • Still reeling after the events of Season One, Babylon 5 must adjust to its new CO, Captain Sheridan.

    More brilliance from Babylon 5. This is one of the most underrated Sci-fi shows on TV, if not THE most underrated.

    My only complaint about Sheridan replacing Sinclair is that Sinclair’s voice suits the opening credits more.

    This show is primarily a bridge between season one and season two. A new commander has arrived. More information is given on Delenn, although she still in her cocoon. G’Kar is not back from exploring the destruction in Quadrant 37. Garibaldi is still in a coma.

    But that it not saying that nothing happens. While the story goes slow because some major characters are otherwise occupied, we learn about the events that take place since the end of season one. This includes information on Sheridan and a rare moment of emotion from Ivonava.

    While not the greatest episode ever, it is a rather good one that has me quite excited for the rest of the season.
