In 1994, Star Trek had to take a backseat to a new kid on the block, science-fiction series Babylon 5, created by Michael Straczynski. In a nutshell, it's the 23rd Century and the Babylon 5 space station has become an interplanetary peaceful negotiation centre. Humans and aliens attempt to settle differences in a reasonable fashion here under the stewardship of President John J. Sheridan (Bruce Boxleitner), which makes for some fantastical plot arcs throughout its five year run.
This stylishly compact yet comprehensive box set contains every Babylon 5 episode ever made, the series Crusade and all six Babylon 5 feature films with extras, plus the brand-new feature The Lost Tales, which has never been shown on television.

Very Tempting:)

GREAT FIND

I bagged one (and even better) I got an extra discount of £26.09 (so £32.88 total delivered) - went through Nectar site - not sure if thats a standard deal?

Will rate OP as HOT (if I work out how to)

Cheers, OP ! :-
Heat added.

Babylon 5 was a great tv series. I have watched every single episode and you never lose interest.

You do need to find time to watch them all at 40 mins or so per episode.

The crusades and the movies were just as good.

Below £60 that is an absolute steal!!!

Could you also work out how to tell others about a good deal you got? I'm going to presume you made this up unless you do, because I see nothing on Nectar that gets me anything more off.

Had to rate this as cold - good price, but it's been at this price level for quite a while now.

To get money back on buying this from amazon register here and use just like Quido

Actually it hasn't. Its been £100+ for a month or so at least as I've been constantly checking its price. And yes i too would like to know about this nectar offer.

just ordered one for the wife birthd:whistling:
#14
Quite simply buy it now while you can, do not think just do it.
I already have them all on DVD or I would buy it in a heartbeat.

Probably the best sci-fi show I have ever seen, a lot more to it than Star Trek, Battlestar, Stargate, etc. which I love as well, but for me this is number 1, would be nice if they went back and did the effects again as they are a little dated now.

Voted HOT.
#15
Cheers Op, been waiting for this to come back in stock! Have some heat!
#16
I think it's been this price before...

...but it looks like stock can be sketchy. Good chance to buy it while they have it.

Loved Crusade when it was on late night on C4 (never managed to see B5), but for me Trek is still the standard for SciFi series, so many series, so many episodes, so many storylines, so much depth, still the best.

but tempted to give B5 a go, but £58 is still quite pricy, what the cheapest it's been down to? ever been to £30-£40?
#18
If you have never seen B5, then do so. B5 has long long story arcs, medium arcs, short arcs and damn good standalone episodes. I suspect you may revise your opinion of how it compares to ST/TNG. Trek is still very good indeed, but B5 is based in a more "real" universe, with no teleport, artificial gravity or miraculous warp drives. When I first saw it, I thought it was a Trek wannabe, but quickly came to realise that it stands on it's own 2 (or 4 or 8) feet. It is definitely time it had another outing on terrestrial telly.

You get a lot for your money, but £58 is still a big chunk of dosh at this time of year.
#19
but the "teleport, artificial gravity or miraculous warp drives" are exactly what/why I love Trek so much :p :thumbsup: (and any other SciFi series with advanced technologies)

agree bad time of year to fork out £58 for DVDs, if it was £30-£40 then it'll be an easier decision, and I actually wanted to watch the whole serie of Crusade so much I bought the boxset twice because the first one had scratched discs lol, so I'm kinda double dipping.

btw my fav is VOY, then TNG & ENT joint 2nd, least like TOS because it's so dated and lacking advanced tech/sfx.
#20
I was given this as a present, fantastic well made boxset and a bargain at that price. :thumbsup:

I watched the first episode and I was bored to tears, I couldn't watch any more. My boxset is now at the bottom of the wardrobe acting a my wife's shoe rack!

OUCH

Well you may 'presume' all you want - why I should want to make something like that up is a strange concept but hey ho....moving on.

IU tried the same process as before this morning and wasnt able to get the same discount.

The email confirmation from Amazon has the additional £26.09 as a 'girft certificate' (which I didnt have any) but it has confirmed the extra low price in my op.

Perhaps Amazon have 'made it up'?

(btw I have only recently joined this site and I noticed the amount of 'this is my first post so be gentle' now I see why. I have been registered and an active poster on many sites for well over 5 years so Id be grateful if you didnt cast doubts on why I posted what I did - I got the discount - dont know why - but thought it may be peculiar to nectar so posted it - perhaps next time I shouild keep any possible extra discount find to myself which isnt really in the spirit of this site is it?)

I think some people become cynical because posts along the lines of "I was in my local corner shop and they were giving away free Kuro TVs with a packet of Doritos" end up getting lots of heat (I appreciate your comment isn't actually a deal this time). Nevertheless, it's how one expresses that cynicism that is obviously the crucial issue. Challenging you to explain is one thing, being derisory is something else entirely.

I just wish it had turned out there was a really good deal by going through Nectar! Never mind, eh? :thumbsup:

I only got in to Babylon 5 from series 3 when it was on TV, if I was to watch Babylon 5 from episode 1 then I to may just give up. The thing is all the small stuff builds up to something amazing later on, I remember a couple of episodes earlier on only made sense a series later.

I would suggest you watch series 3 onwards, then if you like it then go back and watch it from the beginning. The thing with Babylon 5 is it has a 5 year story arc even though each episode is a story of it's own they all have small bits which all lead to something big.

Thanks for your tip, it's much appreciated. :thumbsup:
It would be a shame to let such a nice boxset go unwatched.

As a Babylon 5 fan, I would say don't miss the second season either. But certainly, the first season is a bit patchy and doesn't have a good rythm like they have later on. I think the general view is something along:

4th >= 3rd > 5th >= 2nd > 1st

Unfortunately, the 5th season suffered a bit due to the show not knowin if it would be renewed towards the last thrid of the 4th season and JMS packing lots of what he was planning for the 5th seasons into the end of the 4th.

Hope this help.

Thanks :thumbsup:, I made a note of what you said and will have another try at watching it once I've finished with The Wire.

I prefer Original Star Trek to Enterprise because of little things called stories, characterization, imagination etc.

Clearly I'm mistaken and the best TV sci-fi show must be the one with the biggest CGI budget.

Wouldn't that make the recent Flash Gordon fiasco a better series than, say, the original Twilight Zone.

Oh but that was made in B&W so it must be rubbish to begin with. :roll:
