- I liked Sinclair's opening better, sounded more dramatic than Sheridan's

Yeah, Boxleitner only had the text to work from. He redid the narration after the visuals were put together, and IIRC the better version shows up for ep 4.

Babylon 5 S2E2: Revelations

Spoiler:

Remember everything that happened at the end of season 1? Let's deal with that now.

-Ooooh, underbelly shot.
-Londo having that time of the month.
-G'Kar's in trouble.
-Suicide run got one of them at least.
-The THIRD AGE of Mankind.
*** Each season of B5 has its own intro. This one is my favorite. I like the "5" wipe, and the music is nice.
-Well, not this jazzy stuff.
-"Garibaldi's Aide" doesn't even get a name?
-Franklin going for broke.
-Johnny? hahahahaha
-Dude just pops in when he's needed.
-Oh my, he's serious.
-And that seems innocent enough a request.
-Dude's still missing his wife.
*** Sheridan more or less takes over Sinclair's story arcs for a while. This is about the time in the series where Catherine Sakai would go missing exploring some planet somewhere.
-Lennier tending Delenn's silkiness.
-Sheridan being a Father to his Men again.
-"Weep for us all." G'Kar has seen ahead to season 3.
-The ancient enemy returns. Heeeeeeeeeeere we go.
-Garibaldi the wiseass.
-Jack checking up on our boy.
-She's escaped!
-And become... ugly.
-Or a lizard.
-Sheridan's...um, "sister" is pretty slinky in that chair.
-A three-hour tour.
-Z'ha'dum, that name even you hobbits have heard.
-D'awwww he's going to show her his kinky thoughts.
-Oh, that was a convenient mirror.
-Ha, it was a ruse.
-Oh, the circle game.
-Um, the president doesn't usually do field office work...
-BOOOM, gutshot.
-G'Kar figuring things out.
-Delenn's got hair!
-Um, no, your government did not bless your little adventure.
-Yeah, Sheridan's got a boner.
-Sister has a metamorphic surprise too?
-No, it's just a data crystal.
-Garibaldi conspiracizing.
-Dorky minimal hug.
-G'Kar reading stuffy old human scribblings.
-Tsk tsk. Should have made backup copies.

Babylon 5 S2E4: A Distant Star

An explorer ship visits the station, leaves, and promptly gets lost.

-Nice bombastic music.
-Ivanova still hobbling around.
-"Swamp Rat". Probably something about Sheridan's underwear.

-Hahahaha, the ambassador smells bad.
-Ivanova sitting in some random wood chair. No fancy future chair.
-Uh oh, explorer ship took a shit.
-Nobody likes their vegetables.
-You'd think an explorer ship would have backup navigation systems.
-Ivanova dropping the unnecessary exposition.
-Hahahaha, Delenn dropping the dime on Garibaldi.
-Sheridan expositing some more.
-It is a longshot. It also assumes hyperspace is linear and one-dimensional.
-I bet the black dude dies. That mustache alone is worth death.
-Boom! Black dude got jacked.
-Well, we got the whaler back to port.
-Wait, they only had five Starfuries?

Whoops I watched these last week and forgot to write down anything about them, I guess here’s what I remember:

s1e17:

-Oh no not… a war with the Minbari… again…. because… this guy died…. help I don’t retain anything about the sociopolitical events in this universe
-Talia walks into infirmary -> “oh god please don’t give her a scrappy psychic orphan sidekick”
-Scrappy Orphan going shopping for training programs like she has a real choice, like Psi Corps doesn’t just black-van you after they politely accept your “no” Laughing
-Corpse eating aliens is the best thing ever and like 50% of what I remember from this ep
-I wish Delenn got to be a badass every episode.
-Oh I guess Psi Corps doesn’t just black-van you, you can actually choose to be a Ravenclaw? Have fun involving yourself in shadowy covens and mysterious chrysalises or whatever
bomaye wrote:- Sinclair looked like such a nerdy high school principal getting random hugs from I BET SHE STOLE HIS WALLET
rofl

s1e18:

-Seriously don’t think they’d ever said shit about that planet down there. Guess you can take it for granted as long as it’s not trying to explode
-Oh no Delenn’s favorite Sunday school teacher
-Oh no Mars
-Oh no Garibaldi’s SpaceEx
-Oh no attempting to bully favors out of Psi Corps
-“Machines as big as buildings…” GTFO Harlan Ellison, it’s not the 60s anymore, bigger isn’t an indicator of more computing power. You want to impress the savvy viewers of today, be like “machines as big as dust motes…”
bomaye wrote:- Machines the size of buildings... they live in a machine that's much bigger than buildings…
Also that Laughing
-This planet machine with its dying corpse-brain is very 40k Emperor of Mankind
-Seriously, nobody in this universe seems to know anything about what’s going on anywhere, even the shadowy powers-that-be. This little confederacy of dunces Heart
-Don’t cry, Delenn, your Sunday school teacher is getting his perfect life’s-mission-fulfilling ending
-(Until some other idiot Earthforce captain decides to pull the planet’s pigtails again and he blows up you and everyone you know)

Oops, turns out I watched 18 AND 19, I think it was condensed into a single file.

S1E20:

-Bahaha punking Ivanova with the breakfast switcheroo, more of this please
-Oh, they got tachyons in B5 too?
-Note to self: If you’re ever in radio contact with HQ and you see something that’s about to kill you, say something more descriptive than “it can’t be! It just can’t be!”
-GHOOoooOOOoooST B4!
-Is this the first time-travel(-esque) thing that’s happened on this show?
-“Who’s going to go evacuate the inexplicable deadly Ghost Shi—“ “Dude don’t even ask. Sinclair.”
-Fasten then zip, Garibaldi.
-YEAHHH, I’M ON TEAM COOL DUDES TOO Cool
-(He’s correct to speak for the viewers that it’s nice to see some non-Very-Serious dialogue sometimes)
-Ohman, Delenn conveniently back at the Grey Council the moment spacetime starts dissolving
bomaye wrote:- I think the Minbari wouldn't invent hooded clothing because of how annoying it would be to get off of their heads
Laughing But you could also put magnets in the hoods so they’d stay up
-Hm, so 9 is the Minbari number?
-“It must be a great relief to know you’ll never see your residence or stuff or acquaintances again.”
-B4 skeleton crew, more like ZOMBIE CREW
-“This is as good and as bad a time as any.” Very grey perspective.
-Time…traveling… apocalypse.. barbarian… of destiny?
waxingjaney wrote:-Zathras talks in the third person. Zathras has lovely raccoon coat.
rofl
-Q: How do you get Sinclair to do a thing? A: Say “Commander, don’t!”
-“Out of their diversity comes symmetry.” That’s a nice thing to say about humans. It’d be even better if the Minbari were like a Gethen-style genderless species.
-Oho, Garibaldi dumped SpaceEx for Sinclair?
bomaye wrote:- "You think you've got something to prove." I sure would if I wore that shirt unironically
M-M-MEGABURN
-Zathras hopes they took good 3D images of Zathras before beam fall. Don't want statue of Zathras modeled on squished body.
-AWWWWW SHIT, OLD SINCLAIR, so that’s why Delenn thinks he’s so important
-“We are surrounded by signs, portents, and other eponymous elements.”
-“Did the Flying Dutchman ever make it home?” Ivanova’s favorite kind of answer: the gloomy fatalistic one

edit: Whoops, yes, that was e21

s1e21:

-Londo’s talking to a lady Centauri who’s not a sex worker?? And she has hair??
-Lennier’s very short life story Sad
-Um… sure, Londo, I bet you’re doing me a big favor with no strings attached.
-Aw, Franklin has an illegal pro bono clinic.
-“If you’re gonna join in the fun, might as well go all the way, right?” Wink wink nudge nudg
-Huh, pretty reduced terms on capital punishment in the future.
-“Have you seen Laura Rosen?” “Why?” “She’s in trouble.” “I’m sure you’ll find her!” *Laura Rosen hauls ass away*
-Oh, just Laura Rosen's daughter
-An old hippie chiropractor, she's not towing the line of established medical science despite demonstrable results, GET HER!
waxingjaney wrote:-It says something like "One ring to rule them…”
Laughing
-It does make way more sense to brainwipe dudes and make them useful than imprison them if you're in a closed arcology with limited resources.
-DON’T MAKE THIS NERD SPEND HIS ALLOWANCE AT THE STRIP CLUB
-Psychotic impulses and homicidal rages. Damn, I thought I knew humans with bad alcohol reactions.
-“My mother is not a young or well woman.” That actress is not so old, betting on the alien machine sucking her dry to heal people
-If Talia is THIS distressed by seeing a single murder in somebody’s head, how did she qualify for criminal cases in PsiCorps anyway?
-Or maybe he’s like some kind of SUPERMINDCRIMINAL the likes of which has never been seen
-rofl Straight up Zima product placement, first time there’s been an actual bottle of it
-Life force transfer machine, called it
-Holy shit, Talia gives the first honest answer to “are you okay?”
-The sticky tentacles grabbing poker cards rofl What a charming shot
-God Earthforce officers are bad at holding on to prisoners
-OH SHIT Londo has Vorlon tentacles??
-OH SHIT Lennier is a kung fu master??
-Maybe this machine can be repurposed as a third punishment option for murderers, make ‘em be life-force fodder for innocents
-Oh fuck yeah, old lady! Didn’t see that coming, I hope she lives forever now
-Lennier & Londo Barfight Adventures is a spinoff I’d 100% watch
-Bahahahaha blowing Lennier’s mind with Centauri tentacledicks, holy cow rofl
-Aw, hippie grandma gets to go on a redemption quest, secure in the knowledge that her daughter will catch a D while she’s away

Babylon 5 S2E5: The Long Dark

Spoiler:

A sleeper ship is picked up by the station crew, and it makes a special delivery of DEATH!

-Automated beacon. I bet it's a ghost ship.
-Wackiness in the slums.
-Dude, you forgot your prayers. They don't work if you say them wrong.
-Man, this guy is still going.
-Uh oh, a sleeper ship. Don't wake up the passengers.
-Yeah, go ahead and wake up the crew of the Botany Bay.
-I'm sure the command trio were the only station personnel available.
-Naaah, we don't need any hazmat suits.
-I'm sure that was harmless water vapor.
-Ivanova's magic touch.
-Yeah, just stand there with the door open so he can bolt and escape.
-And then walk away so he can bolt easier.
-Or he can just scamper out.
-Uh oh, cryogenic murder.
-It could be her. Or the hundred other fudgesicles on the ship?
-Sorry Doctor Smooth, she's married. But I bet her husband is the dead guy.
-Hello, you're in the 23rd century. We've met aliens, and they taste great! Just kidding, they taste terrible.
-Ha, called it.
-Oh, he's going to do something dumb.
-Well, she got over her grief in a hurry.
-Humans now have seven genders, and Earth's sun is green. A lot happened in the last hundred years.
-Flashback. Maybe she's a telepath?
-An entire sleeper ship for two people? Whaaaaaaaaaaaaa.
-Doctor Smooth practicing his healing arts.
-I hate it when my supper tries to flee.
-Lurker boogie seems a bit more rational.
-Organ snatchers!
-Doctor Smooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooth. Boom chika wow.
-Sheridan scolds and delegates. Sinclair would have gone hunting for the monster.
-Hey, the alien delegates get name signs.
-Londo not up for the dark soldier talk.
-Sheridan's not one for demarches.
-It was down here, in the spooky part of the station.
-With the cargo nets and moody lighting.
-And lurky storyteller is a runner.
-Oh come on doc, you got her poon and now you're worried about her feelings?
-And Garibaldi's not going to call for backup or anything.
-Because he's going to hang out with the captain.
-Doctor Smooth not letting his booty call into danger unescorted.
-Yeah, Sheridan's doesn't need any body armor.
-Spooky invisible monster.
-Well, that monster died easily enough.
-See Earth, have sex with lots of aliens, etc.
-Yeah, she's not coming back.
-Oh, bad mojo out on the rim.
-G'Kar's book has a picture of the boogeyman.
