Babylon 5 is by far the best ever Sci Fi series.
It's not just a collection of stories but a series with a plot running through it.
Strong characters, good stories, enthralling!
If i didn't already have it all I'd buy this.

Unless you've seen Firefly - the greatest sci-fi western series ever to be cancelled and then made into a film...
BSG is also a great series - if you can stand the fact that the cameramen all suffer from the shakes!
Star Trek et al, Stargate, Farscape etc are OK, unless you're allergic to 'aliens' that look like people in silly make-up, that is - or farting muppets...
Each to their own though I suppose.

ps - I'm assuming you've already got Serenity - the Firefly film?

I've seen Firefly and it was good but as you said "cancelled".
I'm basing my critique on a series that was, not one that might have been and your perception of how it may have been.
BSG could have been good, if they wern't so keen to make it a moral lesson, understandable only by americans.

A wonderful series that I can't recommend highly enough

I only ever watched season 3, and that was pretty impressive for it's time.

Fantastic Series - nice price but got tin box collection already.
I would highly recommend Farscape - not as good as B5 but is great none the less. Scorpion is one of the greatest Sci-Fi villans ever!

I loved this when it frst aired, am still a big fan, it pains me to say this but it has aged quite badly IMO. I watch Deep Space Nine from a simialar era its not aged at all, but then they had the money to spend on it.

The budget was not there for the B5 for the CGI or for the actors (with a few exceptions) the story arc and the directing are exellent and there are numerous episodes that are still outstanding.

IF you like Sci Fi and you missed it at this price its a bargain IMO but having seen it already I wont go back there I ike to remember it as when viewed originally.

For the money there is a huge amount of viewing for sure.

Nah, DS9 was to "light".
And Cisco's acting was as animated as a clothes peg.

Greatest Sci Fi show ever imo. Got it for £58 but still hot!

In 1994, when B5 started, the CGI used was cutting edge in that it didn't cost millions of dollars to produce. DS9 was still using models and Voyager reportedly only went fully CGI in its 3rd series (funnily enough, it got the same company to do the CGI as did it for B5, Foundation Imaging).
From what I've read, the CGI was shot at a different resolution to the live action and this caused issues when transferring it outside of the States and to other media.

For humour, storyline and character development, there's not been a sci-fi series that can touch it.

Bought this earlier this year for OH. It's a nice box set.

A bargain. I think I paid about £90 for this collection. It is a great series notably for the main enemy 'the shadows'. The characters within this are well developed. The rest of it's a bit weaker, but still worth watching.

But... Babylon 5 is a big pile of ****.

Right, you're sacked. Get back to Bilbo's shop.

As for B5, its great. I'm up to series 3 and loving it.

Thoroughly recommended.

B5 is awesome, the 1st series is a little 'cardboard cut out scenary' but please, please, please don't let this put you off watching the rest of them.

In fact, writing this makes me want to dust off the old box set gathering dust on my top shelf. See you all in 2 weeks or so. ((God my g/f is gonna curse the OP for reminding me about B5))

Calm yourself, sir - it's just a quote I have no strong feelings about the programme either way having never seen it!
