Reviews

Three standalone, full-length feature films from the award-winning science fiction series. In 'Third Space', an Earth scientist (Shari Belafonte) arrives to study an ancient relic that has been salvaged from hyperspace and brought aboard the space station. The relic soon affects the crew members, who begin to experience disturbing dreams containing images of vast ships and towers. The dreams increase in intensity, and more questions arise regarding the relic's true origins. Could it really be a life-threatening space trap? In 'River of Souls', the Babylon 5, now under the command of Captain Elizabeth Lochley (Tracy Scoggins), is placed under threat once again when archaeologist Robert Bryson (Ian McShane) arrives with an ancient artefact. The object, which Bryson shows to Mr Garibaldi (Jerry Doyle), contains billions of souls from a long-lost civilisation. However, the Soul Hunters are hot on Bryson's trail, and when the souls are released into the station's holo-brothel they attempt to exact revenge on those responsible for their imprisonment. In 'A Call to Arms', it seems that Interstellar Alliance President John Sheridan (Bruce Boxleitner) has finally succeeded in forging peace throughout the galaxy when allies of the Shadows threaten a suicidal attack on Earth. The alliance respond by deploying untested defence ships the Victory and Excalibur, but will these be enough to save the Earth?

The grudge that the world seems to have against Region 2 does indeed continue in this disappointingly inadequate release for some excellent TV Movies. In an ideal world, this would be a 7-disc set that included "The Gathering" (original cut as well as special edition), "In the Beginning" (the greatest of them all), "Legend of the Rangers" (a recent quasi-pilot unavailable to buy outside Australia), and a whole host of bonus documentaries. At the very least it should live up to its Region 1 counterpart, but instead it has been butchered to a 3-disc set by the studio.
As for the movies themselves, they mostly live up to the unsurpassable high-quality of the Babylon 5 series. "Thirdspace" is a more action-oriented stand-alone adventure filled with glorious space battles, spectacular effects, and a slightly darker tone. Set in the middle of the fourth season but produced after, it does not deal with any of the epic arcs but does satisfy as a visual spectacle while also giving some good roles to the characters of Susan Ivanova, Lyta Alexander, and guest star Shari Bellafonte. A somewhat crowded audio commentary is provided by director Jesus Trevino, and cast members Bruce Boxleitner, Jeff Conway, Stephen Furst, and Patricia Tallman.
"River of Souls" is the more low-key and cerebral of the three, providing a slower but more intelligent and philosophical examination of eternal life. The intriguing Soul Hunters return for the first time since their introduction in an early first season episode, and they are led by a fantastic performance from Martin Sheen. Deeper roles are also given to the characters of Captain Lochley and Michael Garibaldi, but the finished product is probably a little less consistently entertaining as a movie, feeling a little more like a standard episode.

I own all three of these captivating Babylon 5 adventures on videotape, but I couldn't resist this DVD, not sad or a waste of money I tell myself because after all this is one of the best, no THE best television series OF ALL TIME. Whether these are the best examples of the Babylon 5 universe i.e. the inter-species strife, political manoeuvring, cosmic inter-stellar battles, character decisions that always strike painful emotional cords and all the rest that J. Michael Straczynski has provided so abundantly in the past I would have to say...almost definitely.
I also feel this is the correct choice of extra-length episodes for a movie box-set, after all...the first episode- 'The Gathering' is provided in the Season One Box-set (albeit in a lesser form) and 'In the Beginning' in my opinion is a stand-alone story that should be bought separately, as it outshines these three movies effortlessly. But having said that...'Thirdsapce', 'A River of Souls' and 'A Call to Arms' remain top-notch sci-fi, gloriously entertaining television and visual spectaculars, even more so now that they've been given a new lease of life in this quality, well-presented, movie-compilation DVD. In contrast the bonus material is disappointingly limited, but my expectations weren't incredibly high as I don't rate the Babylon 5 DVD Season compilations much either (too much information unaccompanied by the creator, production team and actors) and besides I'd much prefer experiencing the Babylon 5 universe than trawling through miscellaneous data.

Format: DVD
The same boxset in Region 1 contains 2 more tele-movies, "The Gathering" (B5 pilot) and "In the Beginning" with full commentaries. Here we don't get them, maybe to make us buy the stand-alone DVDs for these 2 tele-movies that are available a long time now -- Only these were bare-bones dvds that had no commentaries. Thirdspace / River of Souls / A Call to Arms are excellent tele-movies worth buying, but sadly they force us again to buy the Region 1 NTSC version in order to get the complete set. :(

this 3 pack of babylon 5 films contains one exceptional episode, one cool one and one which is a little bit rubbish. a call to arms follows on after the end of series 5 showing sheridan testing a new excalibur class starship before getting a vision urging him to be prepared for a coming disaster. he investigates with a crew of others who had similar visions and finds that the drakh still have a shadow planet killer left over, in the ensuing battle to protect earth he destroys the planet killer but fails to prevent the drakh dropping pathogens onto earth. it would have been followed by the cancelled babylon5 crusade series. the battle is quite brilliant and many of the ships some of the best babylon 5 offers. thirdspace is the "cool" episode, a starfury patrol finds an ancient object lurking in hyperspace and the crew investigate. the object attempts to open a bridge to a parallel universe from which an alien race attacks, this episode is high on starfury sequences and starts very well. this episode was babylon 5's attempt at a mixture of "alien" and "event horizon". river of souls is in short rubbish, an archaeologist brings an artefact onboard which starts causing chaos around the station. captian lochley attempts to stop it, it's one of the worst things babylon 5 has done. each film is 1.5 hours long approx and there are commentaries and some other special features, dvd is worth buying for " a call to arms" alone and "thirdspace" is a nice bonus.
