God, and I not only remember when B5 came out, I remember thinking that here's this new show, will it be better than these others I've been watching for such a long, long time.

I feel old.

I also remember watching the premiere. Granted, I was twelve, but I loved this show when it was on.

I've got the first two seasons on DVD, still watch it. I wanna complete the series and get the movie set, which includes 'The Gathering' and 'In the Beginning'.

Never saw B5 until was off the air. I don't remember why I didn't watch it. Maybe I didn't like the CGI or something.

Oh yes. A year or so back I rewatched it start to finish at the rate of four or five episodes a day. I think that even now it stands up as one of the most spectacular achievements in TV science fiction history. In fact I'd go so far as to say nothing since has equalled it, though the remake Battlestar Galactica came close.
