    I’m now Not Reading even as I copy and paste, because I’m *four* episodes behind.

    I desperately hope to get caught up before the end of this weekend, so that I can actively participate with something useful to say.Report

    This is a good episode.

    The convo between Delenn and G’Kar is great, and always moves me. It’s similar to one where Sherriden has to decide to release Morden or not, and while thinking it over, recalls the WW2 bombing of British cities. The Brits had broken the codes and knew what cities were going to be hit, but did nothing: to do so would disclose to the Germans that they had broken the code. War is like that. Some die, some are sent to die, and some are sacrificed so that others might live.

    And I love Walter Koening in this show. He’s such a nasty guy!Report

    We finally caught up with this one today. (A few minutes ago, to be precise.)

    Bester being flipped was something that I absolutely positively did *NOT* see coming. And, immediately, I started hoping to see what would happen with Bester as an ally rather than as opposition and, dang it, looking forward to him above and beyond the whole “Ooooh, it’s a Bester episode” thing.

    The scene where Bester sat in the captain’s chair? That was funny in 2015. I can only imagine that it’d’ve been uproarious in 1996.Report
