I watch all five seasons and the movies every so often. The third and fourth seasons give my home theater system a good workout with the Shadow War and Earth Civil War. I read from JMS a while ago that the show was going to be brought back and re-made a few years ago due to the success of BSG, but everything fell through with the planned network much like it did with the original show.
Yes, though I didn't start watching it until several years after it started. I am in the midst of Season Two (again) right now.
There are so many fantastic lines in that show that would only twig with a B5 fan. I mentioned that I was rewatching the series to one the other day and said that I had gotten "Purple! Green!" that day. He knew which episode I saw.
I couldn't choose a favorite character, or actor from that series. There were so many really good ones. Very few cardboard cutout characters too.
So many great one liners too.
"What do you want, you moon-faced assassin of joy?"
"No boom today. Boom tomorrow. What? There's always a boom tomorrow. Boom!"
"Why is it always thin air. Never fat air... chubby air... could stand to lose a few pounds air..."
"If you see something, this big, with eight legs headed your way let me know. I have to kill it before it develops language skills."
"What kind of security chief would I be if I let people like me know things I'm not supposed to know? I know what I know because I have to know it, and if I don't have to know it I don't tell me, and I don't let anyone else tell me either."
"Why do your people always ask if one is ready right before you're going to do something massively unwise?"
I could go on all night. But maybe I'll just go and watch another episode.
I remember when they were doing a B5 videogame back in the late 90's. That was gonna be awesome. They filmed a whole episode worth of footage around it and nobody ever got to play it. You'd use everything from a Starfury to a White Star and command multiple ships. I don't know what the plot was, though I know that Londo Mollari was involved and it may have been during the 4th-5th season period.
"You take, Zathras die. You leave, Zathras die. Either way, is bad for Zathras." (Poor Zathras.)
"Tell me, Mr. Garibaldi. On a scale of one to ten...how stupid do you think I am?"
I was so excited the year I met J. Michael Straczynski at GenGon I completely forgot to ask for a picture with him and an autograph! I had to go back. He was very good-natured about it. Maybe because I had gloves and a Psi Corps pin. Also met Walter Koenig and got his autograph (I liked him as Chekov, I ADORE him as Bester) and the late Richard Biggs (Dr. Franklin), the year before he passed away.
No one mentioned Ivanova's crowning moment of funny? "Human style."
