First of all, I loved Babylon 5 because of the huge story arc.
That said, I'm wondering whether or not this would be worth watching for me. I generally don't like shows like House with mostly stand alone episodes, and I know that the first season of Babylon 5 is full of stand alone episodes, and even some of the later seasons, but I go through it when I know it's worth it, as it was in B5.
Believe it or not, I've never watched any Star Trek before, so is it alright to start here? And most importantly, I see pretty low ratings here (and I'm not judging, just observing.), and they never seem to rise in later seasons as they did in B5. Some stand out episodes here and there, but mostly they stay the same. Now, I know that this is very subjective and you don't have to flame me, but please tell me about this. Does this end up as a huge arc story like B5? Or will it be lots of stand alones episodes all the way through?
I think what I need right now is to see a sci fi show like B5. Big story, stand alones here and there, it happens of course, but mostly I want to feel it's worth it. Can this show deliver what I want? And if not, can you people recommend me other shows that might?
