Welcome, Ombuds! This one's not going anywhere!

I've asked DougO to upgrade your account. Hang on...

What a show, indeed. So - did you cry during Sleeping in Light?

ha ha, its part of the reason im here as i just saw it a few days ago. I havent watched the crusade, because i watched it a few years ago.

my godless heathen of a wife was lying next to me intermittently coming out with; 'god this is cheesy', 'that doesnt make sense' etc

and im there, clinging on for dear life, giving it everything ive got just so i wouldnt burst into tears like a little child.

i think with the passage of time and knowing what has happened to many of the original actors, those goodbyes to the end of season 5, not just SiL make the finale potentially more poignant today than 20 years ago. heartbreaking stuff.

thanks guys

i have actually watched b5 before. about 10 years ago my italian boss lent me the series dvds, and i watched them on one of these tiny portable dvd players whilst i was working out there, but never saw the films. which meant missing out quite a bit. but still, i remembered those characters and those stories so well despite not really being a hard core babylonian

then a few years ago i watched the crusade and a few of the films. enjoyed the crusade, films actually made sense of a lot of things id missed.

then recently i started looking at what the cast were up to and there was so much tragedy there, i always really liked sinclair. 'hello old friend' was a phrase that i and friends occasionally used, still do sometimes. that story was harrowing to hear.

and its only now i have sat down and watched it all back to back, hasnt taken that long actually, 5 months, maybe 4.

and yeah, its been emotional.

Yeah. Emotional.

(I think a hug is in order but I'm new at this so I'm depending on you for the duration)
