4.0 out of 5 stars Great Series in Need of Being Remastered 24 Sept. 2016
By CHRIS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The only problem I can talk about with the box set is the fault of the original prints of the shows were shot for 4:3 TVs and apparently converted back and forth from NTSC to PAL for some reason. There are some scenes where the picture quality is pretty bad. Again, not a problem with the DVDs because the original video hasn't been restored to 21st century quality.

Other than that, it's great to go back and watch this epic space opera.

To go along with this, you should subscribe to the Babylon 5 Audio Guide (b5audioguide.com) for analysis of each episode and you can also get some behind the scenes information by visiting the Lurker's Guide to Babylon 5 at [...]

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Sci-Fi Series - Highly Recommended! 23 July 2009
By C. Hill - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Babylon 5 is truly one of the most enjoyable and intelligent Sci-Fi series. We missed the series when it aired on TV but, at the urging of my NASA Engineer sister, picked it up on DVD. We (my wife and two teens) watched the entire series (and all of the movies, Babylon 5 - The Movie Collection) straight through over a two month period.

The first season of Babylon 5 is, by almost all accounts, the weakest of the five. The second season really is much better than season one, and fortunately we were warned that this was the case by my sister so we stuck it out. Season one did get much better in the last few episodes as the characters started to gel and the back stories came to light.

The biggest problem with season one (besides the clunky dialog) was the character Commander Jeffery Sinclair (Michael O'Hare). He really just didn't fill the role well, had very bad lines, and was played like one of puppets from Thunderbirds Megaset (Complete 12 Volume Set). I am happy that this really is only a first season issue as this problem is resolved at the start of season two.

Babylon 5 really hits its stride in Season 2, with much better acting, great story lines, and seriously strong character development. The biggest improvement was in the casting change, replacing Commander Jeffery Sinclair with Captain John Sheridan (Bruce Boxleitner) in the first episode of this season.

I really like the way the way the show runs sub-plots through multiple episodes and, like real life, events in past episodes effect events in future episodes. We also see the groundwork being laid for the upcoming Shadow War and for several side plot lines.

The special effects were still somewhat weak, but considering that this show was made in the '90s, they are passable.

Season 3 was perhaps the best one of Babylon 5. There is very good acting, great story lines, and strong characters.

There are very few "stand alone" episodes as many of the plots lines now span the entire season. There are serious issues to be addresses with EarthGov, Psi-Cops, Alien Alliances, The Shadows, and the occasional freelancer. We also see romantic relationships, friendships form, and a new major character is added. Marcus Cole (Jason Carter) joins the station as a "Ranger", he is a good addition and brings a lot to the series.

There is plenty of drama, action and the occasional surprise to keep the viewer engaged in the story. As with the previous seasons, the special effects are still somewhat weak.

Season 4 of Babylon 5 was very good and brought most of the outstanding plot lines from the previous seasons to a close. It seemed that things were very rushed to wrap up the Shadow War and the conflict with EarthGov, but as I understand it this was going to be the final season before it was unexpectedly extended for an additional season.

This season follows the excellent season 3 and only falls a little short because of the rushed pace. There are some great (and frustrating) character developments that has the B5 command staff and the various Ambassadors split up a lot of the time performing various missions. There are also a lot of well thought out ship-to-ship battles that work to show how much thought went into making this series believable.

The fifth season of Babylon 5 was the final in the series. While not as strong as seasons 3 and 4, it was still very watchable.

There were lot of good episodes but the final one, "Sleeping in Light", was very good, does a nice job wrapping the series up, and is somewhat of a "Tear Jerker". It was bittersweet as it was good to finally get to the end (we watched all 5 season and all of the movies over a two month period), but we didn't really want the show to be over.

This was a great way to see the entire series and it was well worth the investment in both time and money!

Highly Recommended!
5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best TV shows -- STILL!!! 23 Jun. 2017

Babylon 5 is what today's modern Sci-fi tries to be and fails. There is an overarching plot, nothing is wasted. The characters are fun and unique and unfortunately mortal. Death is thing so like Game of Thrones, don't get too attached. Or if you do, keep the tissues handy. One of my favorite episodes is "Passing Through Gethsemane" it's so quiet but packs a wallop. And don't mess with Delenn or Vir... it always ends badly for those who do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great saga! 5-Pack isn't complete for correct viewing order 24 Dec. 2004
By andreas838 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
As a lover of sci-fi series, it's great to see such a saga sold as a set. The reality for the B5 connoisseur is that this isn't the Full Monty. You should also purchase "Babylon 5 - The Movie Collection" and the B5 spin-offs "Crusade - The Complete Series" and "The Legend of the Rangers". The reasons are indicated below in my recommended viewing order.

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 through to and including 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. Watch the B5 movie "The Lost Tales" [Thanks to Eric Pregosin for his comments to build on the original list]
13. Watch the B5 movie "The Legend of the Rangers" [Thanks to Lisa for her recommendation]
14. Watch Crusade Series
15. Season 5: watch final episode "Sleeping in light"

The question which is debated in several other reviews is: Despite the release dates of the material produced, in what order should it be seen? In particular, if the viewer is a total new comer to the series. The above is an attempt to give some structure to great content so it is more enjoyable as a complete work.

PS - It is astounding that the Warner marketing dept. gives no official recommendation on how these products should be best enjoyed.
5.0 out of 5 stars Babylon 5's characters are powerful and fabulous 30 May 2015
By Paula Grover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I saw all the B5 episodes in the 1990's when it was on, but had forgotten a lot of the story. I have always enjoyed B5 and especially have found the G'Kar/Mollari story arc to be the most powerful. I love watching G'Kar transition from a dubious "villain" at the beginning of the show to a spiritual figure/writer at the end of it. Mollari's story is far more tragic, and he has to live with the "Drahk" creature in him after he becomes Emperor. Before that happens, however, it is very cool to see the forgiveness and friendship that finally happens between G'Kar and Mollari in the last two seasons. My favorite episode was the one where Mollari helps G'Kar to free Na'Toth from the Centauri prison. The whole transition of Londo and G'Kar was beautifully done, with the characters hating each other so horribly in the First Season to tolerating each other in the middle and then at last becoming friends to the bitter end. Vir is also one of my favorites, as you see him go from buffoon to humanitarian to Assassin of Emperor Cartagia to being the Centauri Emperor himself at the very end. The characters absolutely made B5 the great show that it was--they were all fabulous, but there are too many arcs to mention them all here. I also liked the Sheridan/Delenn relationship, and of course, Garibaldi. I'm still enjoying the episodes many years after the show ended.
