A much grimmer look at interstellar relations than star trek, this show had a very political message running through it's five year run. JM Stackzinsky wove an enthralling narrative that would have gone strong through many more years and companion shows alas the fickle viewership of america seems determined to keep good sci-fi off our screens. With many plotlines left unresolved a future return to this universe would not only be possible but also welcomed and long overdue.

My friends all watched it so we'd have Babylon 5 nights at each others apartments to keep up with the show.

I loved the weekly get-together but after about the third season I just lost interest, but had to keep going, that's okay, they're my friends, I still had a great time. But, I'm only now admitting how I lost interest! :D

This show turned me off on the first episode, it seemed wacky and the costumes were ridiculous... the characters were jarring. By the end of season one it was easily my favourite Sci-Fi of all time. Grittier then Star Trek, the dynamics between Londo and G'kar were by far highlights to this series. I wish this series was more popular considering how fantastic it is.

A great outer space series by Sci-fi writer J.M. Straczynski , where after EARTH has made 5 attempts to keep a Space Station posted at a Worm Hole that brings 2 Universes into contact and the Crew that attempts to keep all the civilizations at Peace with each other . Their past is full of Conflicts and hopefully Babylon 5 is our best hope for the Future !

In my opinion, this continues to be the best written TV drama. The creator spent a lot of time on continuity, consistency, and innovated ideas. A joy to watch.

One of my American friends bought me the complete set and I enjoyed it even if at times the plot was odd.

I've tried to watch this over the years. I just can't get into for very long.

Hands down, one of the best Sci-Fi shows ever produced. I miss smart shows like this.

A vast universe, many races and all get along after a long war. Eventually they rally together to fight an ancient enemy. For its time it was a very good show. CGI was for that time very nice and the characters were well developed. The staion Babylon 5 is the center stage for this series. This show was really good.
