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

Which version of The Gathering does it have, the original cut with Stewart Copeland’s soundtrack or just the redo?
Main issue with this box set is, I think in season 3 they put 2 of the same disc in the set so you get disc 1 2 3 3.

This might be an updated set.
Babylon 5 is a good show with some great episodes but not sure it's such a bargains even with films, crusade and LT. You can probably get the seasons from cex for a few quid each and see what you think cos the rest can be grabbed v cheap.
Because it's not been remastered like TOS, TNG - if you own a 4K TV be aware this will look like crap on your TV (I'm not talking about the effect just the general softness and fuzziness of the picture).
Great, great series

Actually, I've watched this on a 4K tv via my xbox one s, and quite a lot of the scenes look immaculate - almost like new. Granted, the scenes with real life and CGI aren't brilliant, as they lost the original film cells and had to digitally zoom in on them to make them widescreen, but on the whole, it's still pretty good for it's age.
The stories were great and decent acting. If only it had modern day CGI effects

It’s the problem of having cutting edge effects, they are cutting edge then and only then.

That’s where 80s-90s Trek had the lead, they had an almost timeless look to them.

That said I’m team JMS all the way
Watch seasons 1234 and don't bother with 5, JMS had it to play over 5 seasons,But the studio said they were cancelling it and he wouldn't get a season 5,So he rapped it up with the 4 seasons, ending and all. Then they gave him the 5 season, But it was to late, so s5 just feels so out of place and a stand alone season.

I agree with the exception of the final episode of S5, as it was the intended ending for S4 but they left it to air at the end of 5 instead once they found out they were getting S5. Its also a great ep.

Edit: Actually I'd say its worth watching the last two of S5.

A groundbreaking series. One of the first I noticed that was episodic but had a story arc.

I was thinking that £40 was a bit pricey too but when you break it down it seems more reasonable.

£4 per season plus Crusade = 6 x £4 = £24
£1.66 per film (3 each in a box set package) = 2 x £5 = £10
£3 For, Lost Tales

So that's a quite conservative £37 for the whole kit and caboodle, brand new, vs £36 (if you qualify for the Quidco deal).
Yeah it's alot for the money but if u don't like the series you'll never watch it all.. anyway some of the actors were top class , its sad so many have passed on
Visually dated but it's easy to forget about that as the story is so good. Great that you get all the movies and the spinoff too in the box.
Great series. Well worth the time to watch it.
when i moved to the Philippines for a year i took the B5 boxset with me- gutted that i left it there

Yeh I just noticed it's quite soft with artifacts but good it's wide-screen, my older complete edition wasn't. Do you have any recommended settings?
