Indeed. I wish WB would come their senses and bloody let JMS DO SOMETHING with B5.

I think that's VERY likely to be music, because of the public broadcast copyright stuff around cinema / public screenings.

I wonder if after the finale airing, JMS might be willing to talk more about the show, what ifs and full arc? I remember him dropping a bit of info after the cancellation. But I'd love to hear him...

Yes, that would have definitely worked. Perhaps we'll still get elements of that in the finale? I'm a little sad to not be seeing the full 5 season arc, as I have the distinct feeling JMS would have...

I think it's that question of does it NEED a sequel. I'm unsure Blade Runner needed any kind of follow up. I feel like it works better as a stand alone.

Ahhh man, I freaking love Lurker's Guide. Such a great site. I fully intend to do a re-watch one time where I read Lurker's Guide AND the script books before each ep. Who know when though? Retirement...

Off the back of the brief Twitter exchange with Sean Astin around Amazon's LOTR series. A shame JMS tagged Netflix instead of Amazon... Not the most pro move there! Ha. He'd a good fit as show runner...

Yes, I accept that. But I've always found JMS' work explores the grey areas more, and is less concerned with binary good / evil. Sense8 is sometimes maddeningly black and white in how it handles its...

Who Wrote What-and Other Questions

I still find the division of labour fascinating, and I always wonder if some of the standout pieces are JMS or the Ws or a bit of both. I guess I am interested in how JMS' writing has eveolved and to...

I note no writing credit for JMS on the special. I know we'd had it confirmed that he'd stepped away, but I still think this is a crying shame. I guess he had work conflicts or felt it best to just...

So, I finally saw this, and strangely it did very little for me.

Hill Street Blues creator Steven Bochco passes away

Relevant because JMS always cites it as a turning point in TV History, a show with 'memory' and extended narrative beyond the stand alone episode. I believe it had an impact on B5's arc structure.

Ahhh, fair play. I didn't make the connection. There are some superb child actors out there, and I think we're past the token 'cute' kind that we saw in a lot of earlier ST TV. I was never a massive...
