We interrupt this program to bring you a show within a show! How novel! But does “And Now for a Word” hold up as a projection of future journalism? Does it advance the story arc? Is it a good introduction to B5 itself? And how about that lovely video transfer?
Talk about the spoilers, from the sponsors to the security cameras…
Here’s a poser for those of you who have never seen Babylon 5 before, and those of you who can put yourselves in that frame of mind: would you show “And Now for a Word” to someone who’d never seen B5 before? Could it stand on its own? Is it an effective introduction to the show?
And what else did you think of it? (No spoilers, thankyouverymuch.)
