My question is are we allowed to comment on topics that were mentioned in the orginal one.

Cause I wanted to right before it got locked.

And no it has nothing to do with that whole mess either.

Yes, this thread makes it much easier to mod the 'Porch. All I have to do is to start talking like Zathras does about the One and things get better.

Wow that was obscure. I only know this because I watched and finished the series from March-May or something.

Comment away. This is a topic-free zone (although not a rules-free zone).

Babylon 5 currently ranks a close second in my all-time sci-fi TV pantheon behind only the reboot of Battlestar Galactica.

Anytime I talk about the One I am NOT referring to Highlander. Zathras was/is a very wise man. Problem is, nobody listens to Zathras.

Pr0n and warez links will be deleted, personal attacks will be modded out and chastized. It's not all that difficult.

Wow. I'd consider that a pretty odd ordering given the lack of similarity between those shows. I guess there's the whole "cohesive plot" thing going on, but that's not entirely unique...

I still have to find and finish season 5. Is it bad like it is some worthless tag-on like Call to Arms + Crusade?

Quite frankly it could end on that 4th (?) episode of Season 5.

All the offending material was edited out, and gleek has been banned. For how long.....I don't know.

Heh, nope. I did BTW smoke her twice in a row playing yesterday. Felt great. One round we BOTH had 3 in the hole and one on top. For a total of ZERO. LOL - that's probably the best turn either of us has had together.


I don't live far. So if you two ever feel the need to be humbled let me know. :D

Oh yeah, and it comes in really handy when you want a decoy tigger mechanism when you have a bomb strapped to a bus. :D
