While my experience on other shows has not been quite the same as
Hertzog's, I can understand his sentiments, certainly. I've been
uncommonly fortunate in that in most of the shows I've done, I've had a
pretty free hand to do pretty much whatever I wanted. But nowhere as much
as on B5. Nowhere, man.

(sorry)

I wanted to check out Nowhere Man more often, but only actually managed to
watch the first and last episodes of this season. I thought it held great
promise.

To the overall tone...yes, there are times when doing a show becomes a
terrible, grinding responsibility on a day-to-day basis. Especially one
as mind-bogglingly complex as B5. You can't just go off and sit by the
shore for a day or to, it's the totality of your waking life. Go watch
Jack Klugman in "A Game of Pool" from TZ1, you'll understand.

In that light, the online experience -- with its occasional ups and downs,
potholes and rooftop snipers -- can be a source of great emotional
sustenance. (When one is not driven mad by them.) It's a great
community.
