B5's Finest Hour,
This review is from: Babylon 5: Season 3 [DVD] (DVD)
While the first two seasons of Babylon 5 was highly enjoyable TV it wasn’t till the excellent 3rd season that all the story arcs started to come together and make sense. This season alone cements Babylon 5 as perhaps the greatest Sci-Fi show every.
The first sign that this season is going to be different comes with the new narration over the credits. "The Babylon Project was our last, best hope for peace. It failed. In the Year of the Shadow War, it became something greater: our last, best hope... for victory." we are told, highlighting the fact that Babylon 5's peace keeping missing has failed resulting in the Narn-Centuri. This failure allows the series to abandon its optimistic standpoint and tell a much darker story which greatly enhances the show.
This is the season that hooks even the most recreational viewer and turns them into an avid viewer and is a must for all Sci-Fi Fans.
