So, I've been doing a B5 re-watch lately using the AI upscaled HD versions. Definitely getting pickier in my old age, starting to see the many cracks in the writing... though that may be due to that Junkyard reviewer nitpicking all the time (ah yes, because Trek is so much the 'superior show'... lol). Anyways, apparently B5 is getting a reboot?

I was just thinking to myself the other day, maybe it's time for a reboot ....

But, uh... CW?

Given that CW almost never cancels sci-fi shows, that could be a good thing.

Let's just hope it doesn't end up like Arrow/Flash.

I hope it explores new story and tries to avoid some of the crap Star Trek has fleshed out. I do have faith in JMS but we all know how networks act. If your gonna do that at least give me some alien on alien action - currently in Farscape season 4, and it's so slutty! I also don't wanna see a remake! It'd be hard to match the casting quality of the original Babylon 5. I think that chemistry is always difficult to create or replicate.

CW, ahh :shock: venture between Viacom, UPN and Warner Bros - what could go wrong :badgrin: way too much political correctness or bitching going on in society atm.

From what JMS has said, this is going to be a reboot in the same way BSG was. i.e same core idea - completely different storyline.

Hey what's this, Farscape praise? :D Yeah season 4 is pretty wild & sexy. Gotta love S3's epicness though..

Farscape is brilliant. I absolutely loved it.

It was an epic watch between Adama (Admiral), Sigh and Baltar. All I can remember is their alcohol stores never running out and Baltar proclaiming himself to be the next god, prophet or visionary :lol: with a never ending supply of followers chics at his whim

What version of B5 should I consider watching? The fan up-scaled edition or warner bros remastered?

Which fan upscale are you considering? I know a fan who is doing a great job but is only halfway through S1.

No idea. Was thinking of just buying it on iTunes. On special for 40$aud. Complete TV series remastered for HD. A lot..lot cheaper than the TNG blu ray remaster at the time - that was a high quality remaster. But when you see some shows too often its just not that good but B5 is better than TNG by a mile!

I have no idea what version I have - it was one I downloaded a few years ago now. I believe it was the first upscaled version released, before iTunes etc got onboard with the idea.
