- 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

Spoiler:

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.
-That's a lot of scaffolding.
-Naming an explorer ship "Cortez" is apparently okay in the 23rd century.

-Garibaldi sourcing some Spanish Fly.

-Well, I guess we're wrapping up the visit already.
-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?
-Busted.
-Garibaldi telling a sob story to get his Italian artery buster.
-Delenn philosophizing, to feel like a Minbari again.

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.

[Wasn't feeling B5 this week while behind on other stuff but changed my mind, and glad I did Smile]

S2E5

Spoiler:

- Mystery Earth spaceship!
- Some guy knows the Shadows are coming but he's crazy and on drugs ofc
- Didn't you guys watch Star Trek, don't bring her in, there's space warlords on that ship
- ZOMBIE KHANNNNNNNNNNN
- The hair stroking seems a little weird for trying to calm down an awoken and disoriented patient
- SHIT YEAH, someone got smart and just killed Khan in his sleep
- Oh boy, she finds out how long she's been asleep
- Ohhhhhh boy, she finds out her husband's dead, Franky gon get sum Wink wink nudge nudg
- "It's gonna take a lot more than 100 years to evolve a better human." Damnnnnnnnnn, man
- Did they mention the first war with Aliens before now?
- "Go back to where you came from" G'KAR YOU DICK rofl
- Sure, I guess some Franky-panky is a perfectly valid freak-out response to suddenly being thrust in the future 100 years and finding out you may be a suspect in your husband's murder
- That guy's fucking lunch scaring Garibaldi rofl
- "And I don't mean you" Sheridan knows what kind of medicine you're prescribing,
- I kind of miss the Sinclair/Garibaldi bromance. Sheridan's much more of a commanding presence but it also feels like it puts him above his crew members (for now, I assume time makes everyone bestest friends)
- G'Kar takes ghost stories veryyyyyyyy seriously these days
- "Very smooth." "That bad?" Sheridan isn't the best at diplomacy Laughing
- Oh, that's where all of Garibaldi's hair went
- Points for the monster-story, I really like that scene
- Though Garibaldi sure gave up running after Amos quickly
- This lady is stone cold, got over her husband already
- "Break out heavy weapo-" Ivanova's got a space shotgun under the desk already
- Why is our state-of-the-art dream-given-form space station not well-lit?
- "SHOOT SHOOT" I love that Garibadli actually shot
- I liked the design on what little we saw of that freaky soldier of darkness space zombie khan
- Hey man, no one died! Not even the sacrificial guest stars Grin
- Oh damn, it reprogrammed the flight path
- It was heading for the rim. God damn, this Shadow teasing is juicy as fuck

S2E6

Spoiler:

- San Diego wastelands
- So they sent nerds stuffed into lockers to B5
- LUCILLE BLUTH
- Now the story of a rebellious Martian colony who lost everything, and the one Corporation who had no choice but to keep the rebellion together.
- Maybe attack the dude while he's stumbling away, Talia
- Garibaldi: One escort, at your service Wink wink nudge nudg Talia: Maybe I'll just stay here.
- "I've changed, baby." *Rips off hand-skin and starts having a seizure*
- He fucks up the door rofl
- So I really liked how Garibaldi didn't just bust in like Sinclair but actually grabbed his security nerds and laid out a clean and quick plan for moving in on Horn
- Talia lying for the Psi-Corps silent
- Bureau 13, was DS9 winking at B5 when they went the Section 31 route?
- Oh shit, son, the 13 operative is listed dead too

MY WHAT A LOT OF THINGS HAPPENED IN THIS EPISODE
s1e22:

-International high court drama!
-Seriously, people who are about to die need to learn about providing useful detail in their last words
bomaye wrote:- Franklin's pretty a-okay about losing a patient. "Sorry, man, my bad."
For REAL, he gets all tied up in knots about some alien kid but a human hobo is all Shrug
-Oh no whatsherface is back, I’m still shipping Delenn & Sinclair
-What a romantic proposal.
-Cats go quack Laughing
-Oh man, another totally benign offer of no-strings help
-Oh man, Kosh glimpses
bomaye wrote:- Delenn got Kosh to say "Yes" to something silent (Probably "Look, do you want to get married?")
PLEASE let her be turning into a hot Vorlon lady inside that pod
-Oh man, what’s Delenn’s next mystical quest
-“Vir, I am quite sober.” [Immediately rectifies this fact]
-…did he say Quadrant 27 instead of 37? And they kept that take?
-G’Kar’s sexy off-duty kimono Wink wink nudge nudg
-Oh man, ghost spider ships taking down 37
-Oh man, presidential assassination plot
-OH SHIT GARIBALDI NOOO
-Delenn, nobody has time for your mysterious junk right now, go back to playing Crystal Jenga
waxingjaney wrote:-Delenn's jenga set is almost done.
I see we had many of the same thoughts during this episode Laughing
-Oh shit President Santiago!
-Oh shit Lennier’s single tear, maybe she shouldn’t have gone back to Crystal Jenga
-Money’s on the veep as badman boss what with his convenient illness
-Vaguely surprised at Londo’s reticence to kill lots of soldiers, it’s not like he wiped out an orphanage planet
-Goodbye, G’Kar
-Maybe goodbye, Garibaldi
-Goodbye, humanoid Delenn
-THAT’S WHERE IT ENDS?!?!?! Fffff
-WHO ARE THESE BADMEN, WHAT IS DELENN BECOMING, WILL GARIBALDI RECOVER, WILL LONDO BECOME A GOODMAN IN HIS GUILT

-That handy scanner sure was convenient.
-Nope, she's not ratting out the Corps.
-Sheridan going all-in on conspiracies.
-Title drop.
-And there's our Psicop.
-A dead Psicop.

S2 E7

Spoiler:

- A guy named "Stoner" who makes people forget things. Probs drugs
- Whoops, how can Sheridan move in on Talia when her ex-husband is in town?
- So if they're not specifically writing sexual tension between Talia and Sheridan, I sure hope whoever's watching these two interact on screen can see it.
- Delenn can't handle having a bad hair day, so she calls Ivanova? rofl
- "Washing?" rofl
- The Corps trying to breed more powerful psychics, thaaaaat's not concerning

- Oh hey, it's the Adams Family guy (who also followed around Lwaxana Troi)
- Quite a voice on this Stoner guy
- He lost his telepathy? That kinda makes sense, in return for his silence the Psi-Corps could maintain their social power and position
- Fucking slaps Londo, should probably keep Timov, she's easy to read and won't knife you in the back, she'd rather do it from the front rofl
- That portrait rofl
- He wears shoes to insult them, god dammit G'Kar rofl
- Lennier gimmicked his cards for him x)
- WHOOPS
- Ha, already plotting to have him die to maintain their social standing
- Sounds like his Psychic Powers were changed just to convince people of things
- G'Kar nailing one of Londo's wives, these two are so fucking petty and trashy rofl

-The harem comes with him.
-G'Kar flipping his shit.
-And Sheridan's not having it.
-G'Kar plots darkly when he's quiet.

-The harem has precedence over the bodyguards.

-Sneaky dude lurking.
-Oh, Centauri telepath harem. That can be useful.
-Here comes trouble.
-Garibaldi watches his back a bit better now.

S2E9

Ohhhh boy, dat title

Spoiler:

- Why doesn't the emperor have wacky Centauri hair?
- "Status", so how they wear their hair is kinda seen as status? The women shave their heads because "nah, this is dumb."
- Sheridan sure has a much harder argument edge to him, not as diplomatically sound
- Wuh oh, G'Kar's already done something we regret
- Coup d'etat time
- Psycholinguistics, I wonder if they analyzed Donald Trump
- "Already arranged." Centauri self-sabotaging to put over their new Emperor, that's not scary
- The Emperor is interested in Vorlons, the enemies of the Shadows? Oh boy
- Oh man, sounds like G'Kar is gonna try to assassinate the Emperor before the Centauri can ruin his reputation
- Way of the Warrior, Papa Sheridan sounded like a badass
- Now who is this human guy semi-stalking Garibaldi
- Centauri Telepaths
- Of course Garibaldi catches the guy tailing him. So cool
- Delenn knows something's up silent
- WHOOPS THE EMPEROR'S DYING ANYWAYS
- "Just pick a target" Oh no, we're not doing this again :/
- "Somebody I'm gonna remind you of this conversation." I kind of hope that scene does happen <_<
- Oh mannnnn, the Emperor was going to apologize and now Londo's gonna get them into a war
- That's a freaky nightmare/psychic future
- Oh shiii, it's the Londo-and-G'Kar-killing-each-other dream vision
- Shadow attacks are so quick and clean
- G'Kar and Londo pallin around just before the horrifying war starts
- Ohhhhhh shit, Centauri and Narn in a shooting war now
- Caesar'd the Centauri Prime Minister
- Sinclair!
- Sinclair' Rangers, because he's the King of Men
- Go Go Sinclair Rangers
- "Stay close to the Vorlon"
- LARIATOOOOOOOO G'KAR PRO WRESTLING HIS WAY THROUGH SECURITY
- Kosh grants deathbed wishes, I guess
- Londo, you fucking liar
- "We are both damned." There ya go
- Londo can't look at G'Kar
- Wartime
- He's avoiding becoming Emperor so he doesn't get killed
- "Just one other." Cuts to Delenn

S2E10

Spoiler:

- "There is no night in deep space and time is a meaningless concept if you stop to think about it." Background bridge extra out-Russian-ing the Russian
- Wuh-oh, Classified General shows up, that's never good for the station
- 25 THOUSAND troops show up out of nowhere, god damn
- Of course, it's Papa Franklin
- (Oh hey, that's Chekov's commanding officer in Wrath of Khan who got space-wormed. Maybe he can hang out with Bester.)
- "So much for genetics." I like to think that Papa Garibaldi had a wild head of hair and he was just making fun of that
- Papa Franklin bringin the big guns, with Shadows lurking, should probably take them Sheridan
- Oh hey, Fighter Pilot is finally back in an episode
- Oh hey, Fighter Pilot made some new friends
- Huh, the Franklins are actually coming off like real family members. Parental nagging, familiarity ("You'll like this." "No I won't." "Yes you will." "... Oh damn." "HAAAA TOLD YA") , Thanksgiving arguments about politics, and pouting and crankiness afterwards.
- Oh come on Ivanova, Stevie-pie gets like this every time they focus an episode on him
- "No matter how I try, I always seem to want to hurt him" I fucking lol'ed rofl
- Ohohohooooooo, is Suave Steven gonna move in on the Susie-Q?
- "The waiting." Awwww Sad
- Ivanova telling him to talk to him, because her father died Sad
- Whoops, Ivanova may have leaked a bit of classified info to him
- One of the background nerds was checking out either Delenn or Garibaldi
- Unless he's bisexual, then maybe both
- Ohhhhhh right, Minbari and Earth shit coming to the fore again
- This Sgt Major is such a cartoon character
- Ohoohohohohohohohooooooooooooooooooooo, does Garibaldi have a new garlfriendoh
- Does Garibaldi actually have a nice butt
- Space politics, man. The alien dudes lied about how easy it is to take the place, but Earth needs it anyways to establish a beachhead for when they have to choose between the Narn and Centauri. Delicious.
- Asking Sheridan if he considers himself a murderer and Sheridan is like "... Well fuck, sorta."
- "But the Minbari aren't your own flesh and blood." Mannnnnn
- You're a bro, Lou
- Mannnn, someone is finally getting some on-screen without some sad-ass sappy background story of an evil ex or "maybe we'll hit it AFTER this episode is over and OOPS WE NEVER SEE THEM AGAIN"
- Nooooo Garibaldi what are you doinggggg
- You fucking nerd, don't talk about your ex
- God dammit, Garibaldi, you might as well just pull out your Gary Gygax-signed vintage first edition Dungeons and Dragons Monster Manual and brag to her about that time your party won against a Beholder.
- She wants your leather-studded kiss in the sand, bro
- Wasn't Garibaldi a ground-pounder too, he should know what that's all about
- "Let's just hope we don't have to test that." Ivanova's Face: "I kind of want to test it..."
- "You may not have liked the way my life has turned out." That time that being a doctor made you a family failure
- Death Flags, man
- Hey, Space Pilot actually did make friends
- D'awwww, manly macho soldiers being all like "Yup, we're all fucking scared."
- HAVE SEX, MIKEY
- BAR FIIIIIGHT
- The fucking guy swinging off the lights rofl
- Hits him with a shoe rofl
- The Sgt Major pulls Dodger away from kissing Garibaldi and shoves her in line, turns around and makes eye contact with Garibaldi and the only thing I could think was "And then he jumps in Garibaldi's arms and starts kissing him even harder"
- Papa Franklin lives, but it sounds like a ton of people died
- RIP, new friends Sad
