Product Description

In 1994, Star Trek had to take a backseat to a new kid on the block, science-fiction series Babylon 5, created by Michael Straczynski. In a nutshell, it's the 23rd Century and the Babylon 5 space station has become an interplanetary peaceful negotiation centre. Humans and aliens attempt to settle differences in a reasonable fashion here under the stewardship of President John J. Sheridan (Bruce Boxleitner), which makes for some fantastical plot arcs throughout its five year run.
This stylishly compact yet comprehensive box set contains every Babylon 5 episode ever made, the series Crusade and all six Babylon 5 feature films with extras, plus the brand-new feature The Lost Tales, which has never been shown on television.

Recommended viewing order, print it out and put it in the box:

1. Watch the B5 movie "The Gathering"
(The Babylon 5 pilot movie The Gathering was originally broadcast in 1993 a full year ahead of the regular show. )
2. Season 1
3. Season 2
4. Season 3
5. Watch Season 4 up to episode "The illusion of truth"
6. Watch the B5 movie "Thirdspace"
7. Season 4: continue with episodes 9-22
8. Watch Season 5 up to episode "Objects at Rest"
9. Watch the B5 movie "River of Souls"
10. Watch the B5 movie "In the Beginning" This is a prelude set 10 years before Babylon 5. Against the logic of the title, I would strongly recommend seeing it at this stage. Should one see it before Season 1, much of the suspense in the main series would be ruined.
11. Watch the B5 movie "A Call to Arms" This movie lays the groundwork for the spin-off TV series "Crusade".
12. Season 5: watch final episode "Sleeping in light"
13. Watch Crusade Series
14. Watch 'Legend of the Rangers'
15. Watch 'The Lost Tales'

As the Babylon 5 subject matter itself has been discussed at length in the other reviews, I shall concentrate this review only on the differences between this new box-set and the previous set, 'Babylon 5: The Complete Universe'.

'Babylon 5: The Complete Collection + Lost Tales' is largely the same as The Complete Universe, although now it includes 'The Lost Tales' for good measure. Only this new set (which is exclusive to Amazon UK) is now in *much* smaller form. Inside the new compact box are slimmer versions of the seasons 1-5 box-sets - utilizing the new super-slim DVD cases that are a fraction of the width of normal DVD cases. If there were ever any little booklets containing episode summaries in the big set's season boxes, as I've been led to believe, they're now gone. The summaries are now written on the boxes themselves. Anyway, you get the exact same discs/extras etc that you got with the bigger/older set, and that's the most important thing. The same is true for the box of the 'Crusade' spin-off series, and the 'Movie Collection' box (containing 'Thirdspace', 'River of Souls' and 'A Call to Arms') - both of these boxes contain the super-slim cases that make you wonder why DVD cases were ever so big in the first place. This all saved LOTS of space, so they have included the original sized individual DVD cases for the remaining movies - 'In the Beginning', 'The Gathering', 'Legend Of The Rangers' and the recently released 'The Lost Tales'. Also, as regards the 'Lost Tales' DVD, it IS the version containing the exclusive 'Art Cards', just in case you were wondering. The main box itself is just as sturdy and strong as its big brother - it's just SO much smaller.

A superb buy!! One of the best buys you can find on the net if you are a sci-fi/B5 fan! You will find it hard to get it for less brand new and fully covered by Amazon delivery policy!! For all those who thoroughly enjoyed but have forgotten the Babylon 5 series of old, or newcomers to this fantastic saga, this set gives you countless hours of quality sci-fi escapism!

I will just outline the skin & bones of the box set as the description of the series/characters/plots is well outlined in other reviews.

PROS: Very compact space-saving case with all episodes and movies of B5, cheapest price.
CONS: Contains no descriptive booklets/order of watching films in-between the episodes, but extra info on episodes and movies can be easily got from a bit of research on the internet.

No of Episodes: 110 of B5 (22 in each season) & 13 of Crusade Season One
No of Movies: 7
No of Discs: 42
Region: 2
Rating: 15

SEASON 1:
'midnight on the firing line', 'soul hunter', 'born to the purple', 'infection', 'the parliament of dreams', 'mind war', 'the war prayer', 'and the sky full of stars', 'deathwalker', 'believers', 'survivors', 'by any means necessary', 'signs and portents', 'grail', 'eyes', 'a voice in the wilderness part 1', 'a voice in the wilderness
part 2', 'babylon squared', 'the quality of mercy', 'tko', 'legacies' and 'chrysalis'.

I ordered this set after reading other customer reviews and I wasn't disapointed. I own all the Babylon 5 series' on VHS having collected them as they were issued originally, and now have a whole cupboard full of videos I no longer even have a player for. I am very impressed with the quality of this set. The box is nice and study and looks good (and takes up not alot of space!) I am also very impressed with the value, I didn't buy the original Complete Collection due to the price. Overall this is a bargain for an excellent product and a must buy for anyone who loves Babylon 5.
