Five stars not for the book really, as I'm not going to read it, but for huge entertainment/irritation/fun the author gave to some Amazon community members.

The story goes like this. One Adama (I've never met him, so I can't say if that's the one of Battlestar Galactica, but I smell a doppelganger) wrote a book and decided to spam multiple Amazon forums with self-promotion. After some half polite suggestions to move those spam posts to Meet Our Authors forum, they were deleted by Amazon. The end? Far from that. The spamming posts of self-promotion reappeared promptly. So I'm going to proceed with some well grounded opinions of some Amazon forum members (quotations used with… Read more

Well, this is not a review of the product really, as I do not own this box set (yet). But there's always a chance to get DVDs restored (to be confirmed yet).

This is not really a review, as everything about Babylon 5 has been said before me, and I'm new to it (well, I was several months ago). I'm coming back to this page from time to time to check viewing order, so I chanced to read a review by Mr. I. Thirlwell. Hey, guys, but that's unfair. To give the show one star because of a missing disc? Of course, it's frustrating, but I sincerely do not imagine somebody at Amazon tearing off the plastic, removing the right disc from the box, inserting the wrong one and resealing it again, and only then sending it to you. Anyway, Amazon has removed all the wrong discs from MY boxset and put all the right ones in (lol). I've made my order on June or July… Read more
