Your co-host Chip here with a confession: I have no memory of what it was like to watch this episode without knowing what was coming. So I really envy those of you who have never seen Babylon 5 before and are coming into “Chrysalis” cold, and would love to know what you thought of it. Ditto our veterans: what did you think of “Chrysalis” on its own merits, without any spoilers for future episodes? (I’m being a little over the top on spoiler-copping this one, because, yeah, there are some big things coming that spin off of this episode that people are blissfully unaware of!)
Dorothy Fontana’s second script for B5 tells us more about telepathy among the non-human races and the lingering animosity between Earth and Minbar. Let’s talk about it here, but please take your spoilers to the other place.
In this corner, weighing in at roughly half of the episode, Susan Ivanova grieves!
And in this corner, weighing in at roughly the other half of the episode, a new guy gets in a fight!
Shake hands, and come out discussing. But no spoilers about episodes beyond “TKO,” please.
Lost in Space‘s June Lockhart almost-but-doesn’t-really reunites with her former space son Bill Mumy in a story about punishment, healing and innovative card tricks. Talk about it here, but please leave the spoilers in Earhart’s.
A Minbari, a Vorlon and a Human get visited by a hologram…
…oh, just insert your own punchline here. In the meantime, what did you think of “A Voice in the Wilderness”?
OK, let’s run down all of the previous episodes cited in “Eyes”: “Midnight on the Firing Line,” “Mind War,” “The War Prayer,” “And the Sky Full of Stars,” “Deathwalker,” “Survivors” and “By Any Means Necessary.” Did we miss anything? And, oh, by the way, through all of that: what did you think of the story? No spoilers for future episodes!
David Warner! Larry (sans the two Darryls)! Unfortunate musical stings! Welcome to the Zocalo, and your discussion of “Grail” without fear of spoiling future episodes.
If you are a new Babylon 5 viewer, or can put yourself in the mindset of one, what did you think of “Signs and Portents”? Were you baffled? Intrigued? Confused? Or could you not take your Eye off of that beautiful legendary artifact (cheap plastic prop)? Here’s where we talk about S&P and those episodes that came before, but none after.
Especially that one.
Labor negotiations! Botany! It’s another exciting episode of Babylon 5! If you haven’t seen the whole series yet, or would like to discuss this episode on its own merits without spoiling others, here’s your thread.
Confronted by ghosts, a character hits bottom but bounces: What did you think about “Survivors”? Please share your thoughts and, if you’re new to the show, speculations! (Spoilers for future episodes? They’re in Earhart’s next door.)
