I recently decided to give B5 another shot. I tried it last year, and I didn't like it much. I think I wnet into with too high expectations because I had just finished watching BSG for the first time, and people were telling me how good B5, some people were even saying that it was better than BSG. By now I've come to terms with the fact that no other sci fi show will be able engage me in the same way as BSG.
I've just finished watching The Gathering, and my first impressions is that it was mediocre, but I'll keep watching for the time being. I really don't like Sinclair much. Hell, Captain Sherrypie is better commander in my opinion.
Like I said, I'll keep watching but I'm not impressed.
