In which we see Ranger trainees as they try to apply what they’ve taken from their lessons to the reality of Babylon 5 and Captain Lochley as she continues to adjust to the realities of her new position. Does the titular learning curve get too steep at times? Talk about this episode and everything that came before here.
A second crime boss has been thwarted by security. Will there be a third down the road?
We get a closer look at how Ranger training works and the personalities involved. Will we see more of them once Sheridan and Delenn move the ISA headquarters to Minbar?
Lochley has been overruled a second time on station matters by an ISA leader. Will there be a third and is she going to start fighting this?
Here you can talk about this episode and everything that happens after it.
Mack and Bo are your guides to the mysterious world of Babylon 5 (and Babylon 5). And yet, you’ve presumably seen four seasons and change, so you pretty much know the place already, right? What did you think of their observations, the unusual format of the show, and what spoo tastes like? (Spoilers for the rest of Season 5 go in the other thread, please!)
A bit of a bottle show, “A View from the Gallery” is. And yet, Chip, Shannon and Erika found a few things here that are markers toward the rest of Season 5. What about you?
Telepath politics. Gunboat diplomacy. Newlywed apartment living. Doesn’t sound like much. SPOILER ALERT: We absofragginlutely loved this episode.
It was easy to get everyone to agree to do something. Now President Sheridan has to get them to all agree on how to do it. He gets unexpected help from the same telepath group that he granted sanctuary to.
Talk about this episode and everything before it here.
As if nearly being assassinated on the eve of his inauguration wasn’t bad enough, Interstellar Alliance President John Sheridan now has to pull off the impossible and convince everyone to sign the declaration of
independence principles even as G’Kar continues to edit the darn thing. And Lyta meets the new telepaths.
Chat about how these things shake out later in the season here.
It’s the second episode of a brand new season with a brand new status quo, so what do you do? Ignore all the new people and new situations, and do a character study about alllll of the bad decisions one man made over four years. It’s Londo’s “Come to Jesus moment” paired with Lennier’s “I’m off to the Foreign Legion” moment, in the most surreal episode yet of Babylon 5.
We have possibly set a record for the longest blog post title on b5audioguide.com.
But hey! Londo’s crisis was as serious as a heart attack! What’d you think of that, and of Lennier’s departure? Leave the spoilers in the other thread, please…
Wherein we discuss the putative redemption of one prime minister of Centauri Prime and the amorous pursuits of one Ranger trainee.
