So I've decided to take my nerdiness up a notch and start watching Babylon 5 for the first time. I've always been a fan of star trek(particularly TNG, can't beat picard ), and really liked the fact that deep space 9 gave an ongoing story of conflict between the different species; and then people told me that DS9 is basically ripped off of B5, so i had ot check it out.. I'm about 2/3 through the first season and so it's been great so far... A few acting problems that are common with all shows in the early episodes, but that's to be expected. People say that it gets much better later on, so i must have somespectacular episodes ahead of me! Apparently it's set up in the form of a shakespearian play, with 5 seasons, presenting an introduction, rising action, climax, falling action, adn then conclusion... Which i particularly admire. Most shows try to stretch on as long as possible; where as the creators of babylon 5 gave themselves a limited time frame to give a more complete and structured story-arc.. So, i'm just wondering if anyone here is watching/ has watched the series and what they think about it.. Better than ST? Worse than?
