      by “more” I think you meant to say “better”.

      The ship-to-ship action is indeed much better in the third season.Report

        Actually, I meant more in the sense of more and better. Instead of BOOOORING indoor shots, there starts to be lots of outdoor spacey shoot ups between ships. Lots of cool planets to fly by and such, stuff blowing up and cool LAZER beams shooting around.Report

    some eye candy

    I’ll say. Good looks, a British accent, and snark combine to make Marcus well-nigh irresistible. He’s not my favourite character (that’s still G’Kar), but he’s certainly the most crush-inducing.

    Eye candy of a different sort – I love the design of the White Star. B5 special effects may typically be subpar, but Minbari ships, the White Star, and Shadow ships all look great.

    This is a strong episode from speeding up the plot, and also good in contrasting Sheridan attitude with the Minbari. The Minbari are to some degree hampered by their knowledge of the Shadows, as it makes them fear the Shadows more and regard them as unbeatable by the younger races. Essentially, the Minbari think they’re fighting demons – angels (here represented by the Vorlons) may be able to fight them successfully, but regular people can’t. Sheridan just sees the Shadows as another enemy, albeit a tough one, and is confident enough to take them on.Report
