Now we’re cookin’ with phased plasma! The first season of B5 opens with “Midnight on the Firing Line,” which moves like a Ferrari compared to “The Gathering.” (Totally a Volvo: dependable and robust, yet slightly lacking in the zero-to-60s.) What do we think of the new faces? Are Ivanova and Winters a step forward or backward? Meanwhile, in spoiler territory, someone puts on his grumpy face over his co-hosts’ assessment of Commander Sinclair.
What did you see in “Midnight” that resonated five years later at the close of the series? Here’s your space. The spoo is fresh. Spoilers are permitted.
The series proper begins here! And if you’re watching it for the first time, or if you promise to be really really good, this is your spoiler-free space to discuss Season One, Episode 1, “Midnight on the Firing Line” in advance of our next B5AG episode next Sunday.
