Rated 5 out of 5 by 4
Rated 5 out of 5 by PEBKAC Awesome series!!!
When I first received my package I knew there was something wrong. The case for Season 3 had been crushed at the top basically shattering the top side of the case. The disks inside were fine so I blame this on Wal-Mart for the extremely poor packaging for shipping. The series came in a bubble wrap envelope, IMO it should have come packaged in a box with some sort of filler, so beware of possible damage when you receive it.
Even though the way it was poorly packaged, this is a great series and the best value compared to other sellers of this series. You may want to pick up the extras (B5: The Lost Tales, B5: The Legend of the Rangers and Crusade the complete series) to top this off with.
The following is the best way to watch every episode/movie from start to finish is as follows:
1. Watch the B5 movie "The Gathering"
The Babylon 5 pilot movie The Gathering was originally broadcast in 1993 a full year
ahead of the regular show.
2. Season 1
3. Season 2
4. Season 3
5. Watch Season 4 up to episode "The illusion of truth"
6. Watch the B5 movie "Thirdspace"
7. Season 4: continue with episodes 9-22
8. Watch Season 5 up to episode "Objects at Rest"
9. Watch the B5 movie "River of Souls"
10. Watch the B5 movie "In the Beginning"
This is a prelude set 10 years before Babylon 5. Against the logic of the title, I
would strongly recommend seeing it at this stage. Should one see it before Season 1,
much of the suspense in the main series would be ruined.
11. Watch the B5 movie "A Call to Arms"
This movie lays the groundwork for the spin-off TV series "Crusade".
12. Watch the B5 movie "The Lost Tales"
13. Watch the B5 movie "The Legend of the Rangers"
14. Season 5: watch final episode "Sleeping in light"
15. Watch Crusade Series
Rated 5 out of 5 by ckp27 loved the series when it was on TV and it was great to revisit it on DVD
Rated 5 out of 5 by discopol It's nice to have it all together
It's nice to have it all together--all the seasons, the pilots and the movies--rather than buying it in bits and pieces
Rated 5 out of 5 by Zooplankton Must collect set sci-fi tv series
This disc set is a must collect for afficiandos of sci-fi TV series. The story arc of B5 is tight. Each episode leaves a viewer anticipating the next one. The movies are a bonus. Their stories enhance the content of the B5 arc. When the B5 series ended, it left questions about the fate of the earth's population. Acquire the DVD set "Crusade". Although this series was not as captivating as the original B5 series, this production develops the characters, introduced during the final seasons of B5, and knits episodes together to provide a resolution of the B5 epic tale.
