B5 S5E3

Spoiler:

- They agreed to everything except signing their name on the dotted line
- Whoa, Garibaldi is up for some of that dictatorship business
- Wuh oh, someone's being and now they want the Alliance to bail them out, this is sure going to go well in council
- Oh wow, Garibaldi of all people wants telepaths to be a secret espionage force. And justifies it by saying everyone else except them (and the Narns, who don't have telepaths) does it already
- I like how the teep already read it and said "no"
- Oh man, the bureaucracy is not gonna mobilize in force in 16 days to save these people :/
- "Terror is a form of communication" uhhhhh
- What if the raiders aren't just pirate groups but are the Drazi?
- Mannnn, a little of a teep goes with them when they're in the mind of someone as they're dying :/
- They mentioned Bester probably got fucked in the head because of being people's minds while they're dying, it actually showed him torturing someone to death telepathically and then blowing their "soul" away like a kiss earlier in the series
- What if someone walked by and picked it up in the middle of the night
- This guy is totally gonna start the Telepath War
- There we go, Drazi were the bad guys
- Wouldn't the ambassadors have to contact their governments first before signing?

-Garibaldi slinking in.
-Getting a lot of use out of that viewport.
-Six months, huh.
-Somebody's shit getting shot up.
-It is The Ranger!
-Well, he's out of luck.
-Yeah, carrion eaters don't have much use for vegetables.
-Haha, Garibaldi weaponizing the teeps.
-Conversating is how the slippery slope begins.
-Well, that notion died in a hurry.
-And a bonus lecture thrown in.
-Maybe a hooker or three.
-Naah, he didn't think to write out a message or anything.
-"What's in his mind?" "He likes chocolate, death metal, and underage Drazi. Oh, and there's trouble."
-But this year, a new band of plucky heroes will defend us from the Wraith hive.
-The jumpgate of the sooooooooooooooooul.
-Ha damn, mocking Londo.
-"All of them" would be a good start.
-Delenn with the obvious answer.
-Good way for ther White Star fleet to get stomped in an ambush...
-And I expect the Drazi are in cahoots with the raiders.

B5 S5E4

Spoiler:

- Random Alien Invasion? Must be a drill
- Hahahahaaaaaa the griping repair crew
- Oh cool, is this gonna be an episode focusing on the random background people and what they see of the main cast?
- Ha, the little people love that Sheridan puts himself in danger. They probably worship at the altar of Sinclair
- Ahahahaha he doesn't even know what the tool he's using is for
- Be a guy, Bo
- I really like this ineraction between the maintenance guy and Franklin. I feel like today this kind of scene would be more of a finger-wagging lecture about the importance of understanding even our enemies and instead Franklin's all "It's your choice, but here's a story where it actually turned out sort of okay, so it might be worth saving them instead." That's totally gonna be a thing that happens later in the ep too.
- I also love that whole "What's wrong with it?" and the bridge crew guy is all like "Fuck if I know, they just train me to press buttons." That feels a lot more real than Star Trek where everyone is basically knows how to engineer their own little space and the chief engineers are there because they know everything about everything
- Maintenance guy saves the dayyyyyy and the main crew doesn't know notice Laughing
- I was also kind of expecting the "I dunno man, Lochley is a woman" deal because it's still the '90s and instead they never even brought it up
- Oh man, that Garibaldi/Lochley drama
- That's so cool, sitting back and watching a space battle and sorta knowing you can't really do shit about it
- The explosions are coloured because atmosphere
- Shoulda grabbed the downed soldier's gun
- ZACK ATTACK'S GOT YOU COVERED, GUYS
- Guess they'll just hang out with with Psychic Manson for a bit
- And using Bo and Mack to sort of show how the Psychics are somewhat justified in how the mundanes react to them. Bo's all "that was fucking cool" and Mack's all "That scares the SHIT out of me"
- And now they get to see a G'Kar/Londo verbal joust
- Oh man, shelters feel like home to G'Kar because that's how he grew up
- "So, how long you figured they been married?" HOLY SHIT HE SAID WHAT WE THINK
- Mack's face with all the "Some guys get all the luck"
- Ahahahahaha Delenn talking her way out of going into the life pod
- "Maybe not all the mess"

-Oops, wandered into Creep Central.
-Don't worry, they won't cut out your entrails and make carpets out of you.
-Put the whammy on him.
-Out of body time.
-Londo whining again.
-You'd think ambassadors would have their own shelters.
-Maybe this slumming is Londo's punishment for being a jerk these past years.
-More shooty time.
-That's a lot of free oxygen.

B5 S5 E5

Spoiler:

- I was like "Oh hey, it's Kano from the Mortal Kombat movie" thinking I was being clever just because his accent and everything looked similar and then I looked and it was actually Kano from the Mortal Kombat movie. Which I guess fits the time because Shang Tsung was in an earlier season too
- Wow, just fuck already Garibaldi/Lochley
- Hot damn, ma'am, couldn't have been more American if it was Hulk Hogan playing air-guitar on an American Flag
- Eyyyy, Weird Al
- It's kind of weird, Garibaldi is very much seeing the telepaths as things to be used, but he's also being considerate of their individual selves, only wanting to use the telepaths as a last resort and to switch them out so they don't get worn down from working too much
- "We just received a babcom message from someone who knows about the murders" and all I could think of is a baby going "WAHHHHH"
- Zack will "think about it" but Garibaldi will probably just hack in and do it himself now that Zack left
- Ranger Jihad
- Other people live on these levels, this is going pretty far out of their way to scare the shit out of a few thugs
- That shot to Kano's hand looked so bad
- MORTAL KOMBATTTTTTTTTTT
- Wuh-oh, is Lochley an old girlfriend?

These episodes sure don't have a lot going for them without any kind of real enemy or threat

I think this is supposed to be Season 1-style world and character building, but this world and characters are rather dull.

S5 E6

Spoiler:

- Catfight incoming
- Garibaldi was just walking through the corridor and suddenly saw Lochley and Delenn and thought to himself "I should hide behind the corner and listen to them." What a creeper
- Ha, there was a previous Emperor Mollari and things didn't go well for him either
- Eyyyyy Psi-Corps incoming
- Telepaths talking to each other instead of telepathing to each other?
- He doesn't get much sleep, too many ladies to please and not enough hours in the night
- Yeah, probably shouldn't have told Garibaldi about Bester, totallyyyyy gonna kill him now
- Nice, a punch to the face while protecting his brainwasher is probably a great way to get Garibaldi and Lochley on the same side
- Awriiight, Franklin gets to be head honcho of intraspecies STD research
- Oh G'Kar, don't be silly, when Londo gets brain-slugged, you're gonna save the universe again, that'll be plenty for the new alliance
- Oh wow, they tried to assassinate Londo twice now
- "If you can't join'em, beat'em." They're really going heavy in this episode on building Lochley's attempted competence up as a commanding officer quick, but this damn ragtag bunch of B5 hooligans keep mucking it up
- Ex-wifeeeeeeeee Delenn vs Lochley catfighttttt
- Oh, is she going to indefinitely quarantine the telepaths for cross-species infection study?
- Oh hey G'Kar, could you be Londo's personal chauffeur, because that totally isn't insulting
- Delenn totally ships Londo and G'Kar
- Did Officer Bridgeguy just sneak a flirty food-grab with the Cap'n?
- Wouldn't telepaths choir-sing in their heads?

My superhero shows are over until late January and pro wrestling is in a bit of a shitty funk. It's just us two, are you into doing two or three episodes per week starting next week for the next month or so? Could have most of the series finished off by the end of January, but if you're still content with 1 per week, we can stick to that too.

B5 S5 E7

Spoiler:

- Doc didn't tell you breath out, alien guy
- Maybe get him a straw
- See a telepath with a stutter makes sense, because they use their vocal chords so infrequently that they should have problems with speech
- Zack's totally jealous but also has a point
- I don't think this Gandhi shit would actually work well in this situation. Down-bellowers would be fine beating him to death and taking his valuables
- Yeah, IRL that guy could keep punching
- And if someone was a Telepath and stole the secret from your brain, what then?
- I somewhat wonder if it's not Byron who sets off the Telepath war, but Lyta. Byron does seem to be collecting people the way a cult-of-personality would, but he might believe his Gandhi shit too, whereas they are making a point of showing how impatient and willing to strike back Lyta is
- Hrmmm, did this geriatocracy subvert and take over another race somehow?
- Yeah see, this is more realistic
- Yeah Byron, there it is, time to go fuck up some mundies and take over this universe
- I like how aliens always do math for the sake of humans. Like the universe is both so convenient for humans that all aliens will convert their own measurements to ours, and that our math is so sub-par that everyone alien can calculate it mentally really quick
- Also a nice little side-story to go along with the parallel evolutionary struggles of regular and psionic humans
- "By the way, The Vorlons turned me into a freaky spacemonster, careful with the vajayjay, it bites sometimes now"
- She's giving away all her Vorlon secrets to people who would probably be fine using them
- Oh that's worrisome. Was she cloned multiple times and forcibly evolved into a future psychic?
- Yeah, fuck'em up Byron!
