  1. I was watching last week – for the 3rd or 4th time since the original airing – and something occurred to me: The description of the Narns all standing in one place hating the Centauri reminded me of the description of the Two Minutes Hate from 1984.

    Also, the similarities to Forbidden Planet are very hard to miss. 🙂

    A very good pair of episodes.

  2. Like many episodes in season 1 I’m sure I missed this one back in the 1990s, but I think this is one of favorites of the season so far. It’s well-paced and we get to see quite a few cast regulars interact. I was a little confused/surprised that Londo saw Varn in addition to Sinclair & Draal, but it was also fun to have him in on the action and see him pilot a craft. I think it also reflects once again in a small way that these characters are three dimensional and multi-faceted.

  3. I liked the bit where Ivanova tells Londo that what’s going on is “Boom. Boom. Boom!” It reminded me of her line in an earlier episode about how (paraphrasing) “eventually there’s always a boom.”
