    What do I want?

    I want to have a DVD of "The Gathering" that I can flip over to the Stewart Copeland version, which (being a fan of "The Equalizer") was what initially grabbed me when I tuned in on that fateful night of 2/22/93!

    Always loved Christopher Franke's score for the series, but Copeland's rhythms really smoothed over all the rough spots for me on that first foray.

    I'd simply like to be given a choice, like the one Cameron gave us when he put both versions on "The Abyss: Special Edition" DVD. I'll never watch the original version, but at least it's there if I wanted to see it for some reason.

    Thanks for sharing. You should consider posting this to the moderated newsgroup so JMS can see it.

    Jan, could you possibly post it for me? I currently have no access to newsgroups. I'll PM you with my personal info so you can let the "real" me be known there.

    Just to let you know, I have introduced my brother in law to Babylon 5. He is a young adult with a severe learning disability, called Asberger's Syndrome, which has similarities to Attention Deficit Disorder, Autism and Tourette's Syndrome.

    He has a lot of difficulty concentrating on things for very long, but is very intelligent.
    Well what do you know! Our 8 year old boy, Luke, is Autistic and he too has great difficulty concentrating on things. His reading and writing is severeley delayed, but does (characteristically) likes his numbers. He also loves B5, knows most of the characters names and can even hum the theme tune for us! The other show he can do this for is Blake's 7.

    As we are around him all the time and we own alot of genre shows on dvd, we didnt really realise how special or different this might be. Great show, small world

    It was mentioned in the past tense in 'A Call to Arms', remember. IIRC, it would have been approximately two years past at that point. Making Mattheson's position a really fast progression. He was allowed to join Earthforce under the 'new rules' for telepaths. Some part of it would have been seen in the Fiona Avery script 'Value Judgments'.

    (off topic - Got notice in my mailbox - my book has arrived in the post office... and I AM excited.)
    Yay! have fun!

    ... Well, for all of season one, we had the search for the cure as the primary objective . . .

    ... I would have loved to have seen the series make it far enough to get into the Techno mages more.

    ... And I always thought the war with Telepaths would have been very cool subject material. In 'Sleeping in Light', that war is mentioned in the past tense, so we know it DID happen... I would've liked to have seen it.

    ... That's the problem with the 5-Year arc. Babylon 5 was nothing short of a miracle, getting on the air to begin with, then plowing on for 5 years against all odds... No doubt it's hard to keep the suits behind you when ratings slack.

    Not quite. After all, we KNEW that a cure would be found, didn't we? The search was what it was set up for us to believe the series was about but JMS has said several times that the cure would have been found fairly early on, probably in the second season. There were two other major threads already set up in the fragment that we got, though. Problems with Earthforce playing with technologies they didn't understand and Technomages and their dealing with their tech and each other. Those, I think, would have likely been more of what Crusade was really about.

    ... Crusade might have evolved, given time, into a fantastic series, but sadly, we will never know.
    Sadly, indeed. How much of the Earth civil war, the Minbari civil war and the Shadow war would we have been able to deduce from the first 13 episodes of B5? It's obvious in retrospect but not on first viewing.
