    Though I am more a Trekkie than a Babylonian (?), I loved this series, and an anthology Trek series was something I've long thought would work well as a placeholder until they get their shit together.

    Oooo. I like the anthology idea; I'm glad JMS isn't going to recast G'Kar & Franklin, though. No-one else could do the roles.

    As much as I like B5, that's kick-ass.

    I'll have to look out for these! B5 is in my mind the best sci-fi TV series created so far.

    When Andreas Katsulas passed away, JMS was pretty well adamant that when Andreas died, G'Kar was retired from the screen. Pretty much reiterated it when Richard Biggs died. He took both deaths -really- hard as far as I could tell.

    Kinda double-edged...great respect to the actors that portrayed the roles, but also a reminder that they've left us. :(

    So the guy who played G'kar died, but who was the other guy?

    About the new DVD's right? Not Andreas and Stephen, because, you know, that would be just :throw
