Babylon 5 S1E17: Legacies

Spoiler:

A Minbari warrior's funeral procession stops at the station, and Ivanova and Talia scrap over a teenage girl.

-Flashback time already?
-New hairstyle for Ivanova.
-Oh hello Talia. Long time no see.
-That was an odd cutback.
-Delenn popped up conveniently.
-Yeah, I always greet people with a gun pointed at their head.
-Exposition time.
-Ivanova, you dink. Talia is PsiCorps. Of course she's going to report it.
-Harp and drums. You wacky Minbari.
-Aaaaah, diplomacy.
-It's a show funeral.
-Yeah, Sinclair wants to carve his nuts off with his bone crest.
-I'm pretty sure this guy is the same actor who was poking through Sinclair's head.
-Aw shit. Graverobbers.
-Sinclair's a big softy.
-Holy war, eh?
-Sorry kid, you're trollbait.
-Tricksy urchin.
-Of course the Cthuloids eat corpses.
-Lol, no due process for bodily functions on B5.
-Ha, that last bit didn't translate.
-The Narn woman is icky!
-You two harridans quit bickering over me right now!
-Ah, there's the big reveal.
-Sinclair's weekly danger allotment.
-Well, you can't find a body that's already ash.
-Delenn's turn to gambit this week.
-Wooooo, Delenn pulling rank.
-Sinclair being rather magnanimous.
-All's well that ends well.
-And Talia with a different haircut.
-Awwww, they're being friendly.
-Yeah, that was an infodrop.

Probably the price to pay for allowing a race that eats dead things on board, otherwise it's easy business for the Space Mafia Laughing

e3 and wrestling is going crazy all at once, and I see that the next ep is a two-parter, so I might skip watching this week and then watch both of them next week

S1E14: "TKO, or: If Regret Could be Harvested, Russia Could Feed Itself Dinner from Having Spent 43 Minutes on This Episode"

Spoiler:

-Heyyy, Garibaldi DOES have another friend.
-Why drink water with a space burger when there’s, like, space soda? Space juice? Space mineral water?
-Ivanova laughing aloud at a Harlan Ellison novel, super subtle product placement, guys
waxingjaney wrote:-Susan, you've inherited 40 acres and a vodka bottler.
Bahahaha
-Uncle Rabbi is adorable with his kosher loopholes.
waxingjaney wrote:-Uh oh, Bloodsport in Spaaaaaace!
Holy shit this whole episode I was just sitting here thinking “this episode is called ‘Bloodsport did well at the box office’” Laughing
bomaye wrote:- Why do space karate-men have gi's? And belts? And speak like Japanese movie gurus?
Stole the thought right outta my head again, looks like everyone’s on the same page about this episode rofl
-Walker’s going to get murdered, right? It’s a shame because he’s got the best bitchy slang so far. “What’s the problem, ET?” “Stroke off” “Snakehead”
-There is actually a Zima ad in this club. A ZIMA AD. THE 90S
-GYOR BOMAYE! GYOR BOMAYE!
-Gyor’s white blood is a nice touch though
-And now Ivanova has official closure because, uh, she suddenly remembered that her dad was sorry, even though she knew that all along.
-Great, he won. That’s important and meaningful and totally worth all this setup. Yankee blue jeans steals culture, everything works out fine, dudes thank him for stealing culture and everyone high-fives
-The rabbi’s little “ooh” when Sinclair busts out some Hebrew word at the end was pretty darling

Preeeeetty skippable episode, but I’ll take your word that something about it is foreshadowy, waxingjaney.

Babylon 5 S1E18: A Voice in the Wilderness, part 1

Spoiler:

Strange things are afoot on Epsilon 5, crappy things are afoot on Mars, and ... Delenn's 5th grade teacher came by to visit.

-Oh yeah, there's a planet down there.
-Talia's back to the usual haircut.
-Yep, he wants her psychic vag.
-Hey, there's an atmosphere... and a giant laser.
-Good call, dude. A giant laser on the surface would be easy to spot.

-Doctor Let's-Die-For-Science!
-Exposition dump: Narn and Centauri don't get along.
-More exposition, this time about Mars.
-Delenn found a friend.
-Trouble on Mars! Oh no.
-Yeah, that's not what signal drops look like in the digital age. Sorry.
-And that's not what glitchy holograms look like either.
-"Oh, you were born on Mars!" More exposition.
-Trouble on Minbar, too.
-Awww, Garibaldi had a girlfriend.
-Garibaldi dumping his emotional labor in Talia's lap.
-Lol, classification won't keep him out.
-Somebody doesn't want Doctor Adventure poking around.
-Hahahahahahahaha, don't mess with Russians.
-Centauri water gives you the squirts.
-Ah, Londo the voice of cheer.
-And he married a hosebeast.
-Londo got the booze that makes you see holograms.
-Wooooo, '90s CGI.
-There'd better not be a giant worm in the chasm.
-Flying into the X-Men hangar under the mansion.
-Lol, race car seats on the ship.
-Yep, looks like mynocks. Better check the hull, Ivanova.
-Good old rock check.
-Little bit less than 3 seconds.
-Woooooo, welcome to the Bionic Six base.
-Aliens trying to understand the hokey pokey. Hooo boy.
-Of course the rubble missed them.
-There's your hologram guy, in the middle of the funky crucifix.
-How does he poop in that rig?
-We found a dude in a thing. It was weird.
-Oh, well if it's a biiiiig ship, maybe I'll give a damn after all.
-Hahaaaaaaaaa! to be continued.

S1E18

Spoiler:

- Whoops, maybe the planet B5 is orbiting is gonna get blowed up
- Garibaldi creeping on everyone
- Whoops, maybe the planet B5 is orbiting is alive and it's hangry
- YEAH, DIE FOR THE SAKE OF SCIENCE WOO
- Huh, pretty easy for the Minbari and Centauri to get along
- "Victims of mathematics" Londoooooooo god damn
- "Nothing from Mars in the news." Wuh oh
- Haggling over who pays for what joint venture. Stop reflecting real life a few decades after you already ended, B5 Neutral
- Oh shit, son, Mars is revolting, The Expanse is coming to B5
- (Ah man, they had a weird hologram hallucination show up in Sinclair's quarters and Sinclair's actor IRL actually suffered from hallucinations)
- "A growing dissatisfaction" Fucking, stop that B5. Stop it. You're a 1990s TV show, you're not supposed to be able to read the future like that
- "Don't take any unnecessary chances" unless you're the highest ranking officer, then take all the chances
- Of course Garibaldi knows about secret Psi-Corps shit
- "Can you sneak me into classified intelligence channels and risk your career and standing so I can see if my ex-girlfriend is okay?" "Yeah, sure, Elevator Creeper, we're both cast-members so I guess we're automatically close enough for this to happen"
- ORBITAL SPACE MISSILES
- Ivanova sure lets the power go to her head
- I nearly spit my food out when she turned out, and everyone on the bridge was like "Whoops *head scratch* [just go about our day and hope she doesn't notice]"
- "Just kidding about that God part." rofl
- "Whatever it is, it can't be that bad." Please fucking kiss him
- Londo and Garibaldi having laughing like motherfuckers, this is great
- Leaves him with the tab x)
- Yeah, look at this shit. "You can't go down there... UNTIL SINCLAIR AND IVANOVA CAN COME TOO"
- Like, literally the commander and second-in-command of this super-important space station could've just died on deceleration if the fissure was less than two miles deep, but they wouldn't allow a geological team whose job it is do things like that go down there <_<
- I like how the Psi-Cops are supposed to be this sinister evil descending on Earth but they didn't even know that the Martian independence movement was so well organized that they could overthrow the planet
- Awww shiii, a flashlight down a dark hallway, Xenomorphs incoming?
- Sinclair knows the first rule of Dark Souls, "Dead bodies means there's a trap nearby"
- Studying the hokey pokey for 7 days to figure out why humans don't lay their best shit on their children
- Machines the size of buildings... they live in a machine that's much bigger than buildings...
- Fuckkkkk man, get him out of that machine so everyone doesn't die Sad
- BIG SHIP INCOMING


Spoiler:

-How does he poop in that rig?

Spoiler:

One of those building-sized machines are probably in charge of that

S1E19

Spoiler:

- That's a pretty big ship to send just to take over for no reason
- Earth Force Command sent them there to take over, wow. Maybe paranoid about the Mars Uprising being something more? Or are they part of the Mars uprising or using the Mars uprising to pull something off?
- Sinclair laying down the fucking law on this guy
- Garabaldi found the future Trump supporters
- Dohohoo, fucking with Pierce
- Dat doomsday machine. Somewhere out in an alternate universe, James T. Kirk popped away in a cold sweat and doesn't know why
- Why does the space hologram know Teacher's name (just toss teacher in the thing so nothing explodes)
- Space pizza
- Garibaldi's shirt screams "The day when my testosterone boiled hot with masculine fury is sure coming to an end soon"
- D'awwww, Jeff looking out for Mike
- D'awwww, Jeff and Mike secretly plotting to make sure Ivanova lives
- Awwww shiiiit, shoot them the fuck down, Sinclair
- A GIANT THING JUST SHOWED UP AND STARTED SHOOTING
- "Downlinking" well, close
- Oh great, the new aliens and the Earth Space captain want to shoot the shit out of each other already
- "You got 10 hours." "Oh yeah? Well you got NINE hours." And then BABCOM
- Ha, those mystery aliens are basically just a Mars revolt that got kicked out
- So when Sinclair walked away from Delenn and Draal, we didn't see him exit through the door, so he's kind of just standing in the corner watching them talk to each other and they're pretending he's not there
- Man, Sinclair and Pierce have to team up now, dem twists and turns
- PEW PEW PEW
- "If I were a landing thruster, which one of these would I be?" rofl
- "I've made a lot of mistakes in my life. And you're one of them." I laughed because I took that the exact opposite way he meant it, I'm sorry Garibaldi rofl

e15: Grail:
-Sinclair is not into religion. Garibaldi is a piggy.
-OH SHIT, IT’S JF SEBASTIAN!!
-OH SHIT, YIVO!
-This Jinxo guy just looked kinda delighted at the tentacle attack.
-LOLLLL GREY ABDUCTION REPARATIONS rofl
-Of couuuurse the Minbari are all about the Holy Grail. Nerds.
-Uhhh, or the religious half of them, anyway. They have one religion, and precisely one caste that follows it? :eyebrow:
-“Eh, let this mystical artifact nutjob take this apocalyptic solipsism nutjob, they can go give each other nutjobs and stay out of our hair”
-Jesus, Garibaldi, you’re one of those guys who gets excited about smashing up homeless tent cities, aren’t you? Sad
-I thought it was going to be some setup where the guy was sure all the Babylons and probably the entire universe were the products of his mind so if he left them they’d cease to exist. This is more interesting, though.
-Vir’s “efficiency” gets the hijinx flutes Laughing
-I’m the last of the last of the last, I promise this all makes sense and I’m not grooming you to be my protege and carry around this heavy-ass stick, I'm uh... I just want to bear your burdens, brother
-YEAH, THAT’S WHY I HAVE THIS MOUNTAIN MAN STICK! KAPOW!
-“Scuse me, Ambassador Kosh, this kid here is like wicked racist, maybe later?”
-But srsly why do they want everyone to believe that the tentacle feeder is a Vorlon?
-THIS MIND IS TOO HOLY TO EAT. THY TENTACLE TREMBLES BEFORE IT
-Oh man that feeder looks cool, reminds me of the heptapods from Arrival
-And Garibaldi’s here to blast it that cool alien into goo, WHEW
-Noooo Seeker got hit right in the shoulder/hero zone, he’ll never survive this
bomaye wrote:Oh man... I dunno, was that freaky space-monster looking to attack? That seemed almost too brutal of a quick-reaction now :/
I know, I was like “Jesus, where is Picard to explain how this thing is just doing what it biologically does and has an equal right to exist?” :/
-Whoa I never ever suspected this guy would be the Next Last Grail Seeker
-I guess I need to have seen the first movie to understand why Delenn keeps calling Sinclair a True Seeker. He seems like a pretty regular workaday military guy to me.
-Kosh all “why? Why? Why? Good.” Cool
waxingjaney wrote:-A nightlight could be useful to someone seeking something in the dark.
rofl
-Garibaldi, do you really need to tell your goons to treat a corpse gently?
-Jinxo Thomas got the uniformmmm, transformation complete
-“Boom tomorrow.” rofl Bless you Ivanova, best moment of the whole episode

Babylon 5 S1E19: A Voice in the Wilderness, part 2

Spoiler:

Ooooooh! "Previously on Babylon 5"
Lol, it's just one of our own ships.
And they're pulling rank.
Matching rotation. Good physics.
Our Earthforce captain is a bit belligerent.
He is not happy.
"Crummy Marsies."
Garibaldi's not happy either.
Sinclair looking for help, not getting much.
"it's being repaired." Sinclair's first gambit of the day.
And the planet is breaking up.
Ha, Ivanova telling the boomy truth.
And here's Draal, hearing voices too.
Garibaldi doesn't eat the crust.
And he's angsty about love and drama.
Well, if you're an ambassador, you can just wander into medlab.
Sinclair pulling out the guns. That's going on his permanent record.
That's not quite "standing by".
Oh no, they're alien hackers.
He's the same as the machine guy.
Ten whole hours? That's generous.
Nine hours! Ooooh.
Guardian guy doesn't like the others.
Oh, his name is Varn.
Haha, Sinclair calling out the Minbari lookie-loos.
And Londo getting mixed up in things.
"Return to old times". Yeah, that's Londo's thing.
Sorry Londo, you get killed by G'Kar. No grand ending for you.
And someone stole Varn.
There goes the ten hours.
Woooo, space battle.
Londo's having fun, because he stole Varn.
Nice to see the blast doors close in 1 second or so.
And Garibaldi goes off to have an adventure.
Can't go this way, I'll have to take her out in the Falcon.
OH hi, Mister Garibaldi.
Well, he's ever so helpful.
Ah, that's why Draal is in this episode.
He's going to become a space monk.
Shields! Oh wait, we don't have any.
Oooooooh, funky.
Draal unit has joined with V'Ger.
But he's not quite got the hologram working.
Well, some old Minbari claimed the planet. Sinclair's going to catch a ton of crap.
That's a biiiiiig laser.
Sinclair gets his bona fides.
Awwww, Garibaldi's honey is intact.
Sorry dude, your woman is shacked up. No space nookie for you.

S1E20

Spoiler:

- These nerds are the worst, making Ivanova thinking she slept in x)
- Dude's internal organs aged 300 years and he still managed to fly home Uh-oh
- Or he used the autopilot. I like my version better tbh
- Awww shiii, B4 is back in play (that's quite a scratchjob for a rapdily aging man)
- So would it have been weird back in the early '90s to have so many women pilots in the row, because I feel like they're making sure to make a point that you see it and I don't remember the state of the world in the early 90s
- God, Minbari buttons look straight out Star Trek TOS
- Garibaldi getting all Seinfeld on us
- Oh shiiii, Grey Council having a hangout sesh
- I think the Minbari wouldn't invent hooded clothing because of how annoying it would be to get off of their heads
- Delenn getting a PROMOTIONNNNNNNNNN
- PEW PEW
- Wtfffffffffffff at this weird panic sequence
- Oh shiii, was that a look at the future w/ Garibaldi going all Aliens? silent
- A weird alien looking for "The One"
- Someone needs the biggest Babylon station to fight something o.O
- A great war, ohhhh boy
- They need Babylon 4 as a base or a staging ground to "save the galaxy."
- The one boops in outta nowhere in a spacesuit
- Good guy, The One, stopped the station being taken to get the crew off
- Oh man, it sounds like the humans and their passions have rubbed off on Delenn
- Like the lights ominously go out in the Grey Council, but they're still all there in the room, you could just walk over and bump into them and ruin their ominous message
- "You think you've got something to prove." I sure would if I wore that shirt unironically
- That thing totally fell on Zathruss on purpose
- OHohooooo his helmet is about to come off, I bet that's Sinclair
- Grizzled future spaceman Sinclair
- Was that future Delenn? silent
- "Maximum burn" *Sinclair recoils in his seat* Attention to details, man
- A magic space triangle!
- "We are surrounded by Signs and Portents" Ooooooooooo

Ominousssssss
