I'd recommend an old Amiga / Atari ST game called Warhead if you liked I-War. It's by the same creator and pretty damn good even if the graphics are ridiculously basic at this point.

I recently re-binged the series as well... I was stuck at the airport for half a day after accompanying my boss to check out some property in Ayia Napa for the company to invest in, but he had boarded another plane as he was going to another airport, so I was alone... close to a WiFi spot. I almost missed the plane when it finally took off 6 hours later than expected... and I finished the series when I was back home.

You binged the entire series in an airport? I don't see how that is possible.. it is over 100 episodes after all?

I started the first 4 episodes there, and finished it during the next 6 weeks once I was home, sorry if it wasn't clear.

Oh, that makes much more sense. B5 is a difficult series to binge to be honest, I mean, I've done it myself but the problem with binging - like anything in life - is you don't get the chance to let the details sink in. As a result I've tried to slow down my binging habits these days and only selectively watch shows every week, as opposed to all at once. 6 weeks is fairly reasonable though.

I think the original B5 is easier to watch as a binge than it would have been catching an episode a week or whatever on TV.
I can understand why it was such a big risk running such long story arcs - I never did see the Vorlon reveal back then and just assumed the show was stringing us along. I think I missed the B4 episode in series 3 too.

Come to think of it, I missed most of the good stuff originally. I assumed it was done at the end of series 3 and stopped watching, just as it got really good.

Yeah, B5 was one of those shows that took serialized storytelling to the next level, but at a time when TV networks were not interested in anything other than bottle shows. Heck, even by the time Crusade came along the airing order and time slots were all over the place. Remember when Crusade aired on Channel 4 in the UK? They put it on at like 1am in the morning..

These days it's completely different, you've got channels left right and center with all-day line ups of sci-fi programming.

I think the first show that I managed to watch from start to finish on the BBC was Farscape - even episodes I missed, I MADE sure I recorded them in advance. So it's not like it was impossible to keep up with shows back then, you just had to put a little effort in. And when it came to sci-fi, I always went the extra mile to obtain it!

Binge-watching isn't good but waiting a week between episodes (and months after a series finale) isn't good either. B5 works best if you limit yourself to an episode a day. That way you give yourself some time to reflect but also don't forget things or have all the episodes run into each other.

What, was it a LEGO Shadow Omega destroyer you wanted?

Very nice. Is it by the same person who is planning to release the details on how to make a standard EA Omega?
