    I can call Thirdspace whatever I want Ranger1. It's called "free speech" and "my opinion".

    I watched Thirdspace twice, and both times I found it to be boring. I'm sorry you don't like my opinion, but nothing you say will change it. "To me Thirdspace was just another 'aliens invade/threaten destruction/we push them back'-type of story. Same-old; same-old. It's been done to death," is what I said and I'm standing by that position.

    So back off. You have no right to dictate to me what I can or can not like.

    I've been watching sci-fi TV/movies a looooong time. To me Thirdspace was just another "aliens invade/threaten destruction/we push them back"-type of story. Same-old; same-old. It's been done to death.

    Now if you want a REALLY good aliens story, go read "The Mote in God's Eye". Lots of cool and original ideas there. Far more interesting than Thirdspace was.

    Really? Cause I've meet few people who say anything differently

    First half of Thirdspace was a bit humdrum but still pretty good and rather interesting followed up by a second half that seemed a bit impossible as well as bordering on the ridiculous.

    Since The Gathering aired all by itself in 1993... with no connection to any series... I consider it to be a movie. (And it was advertised as such.)

    If it had aired like TNG's or DS9's first movie (as part of the series in the regularly scheduled time), then I'd consider it an extra-long two-part episode.

    (Same reasoning applies to A Call to Arms. It aired separately from the series, and was advertised as a movie, so I consider it to be a movie.)

    .

    EDIT: I consider In the Beginning the best. As my English professor once remarked, ITB was like a movie that Shakespeare would have written. Exactly. It's a modern version of Greek Tragedy... hubris, violence, massive death... brilliant.

    The other B5 movies were entertaining, but didn't impress me much. The only one that rises to the level of "Shakespearean" was A Call to Arms because of the tragic poisoning of Earth, but unfortunately the writing and dialogue and characterization was "off" for some reason. Like JMS rushed through the script.

    Thirdspace was dull. River of Souls dull. Legend of Rangers dull.

    IMHO, Mr.Straczynski is not very good on the "short format" storytelling. He does a much better job with the multi-part epic stories.

    Yeah, probably not a wise idea to bring in the "ghost story" until Season 2

    Well,IMHO i think that TS and RoS are just long episodes,where in iTB and ACtA have a movie like feeling (not to mention out of this world story,drama and music),LotR just dont fit,i guess people have a hard time to let the old cast go,and the story was pretty weak.

    Seems to me that most people have ITB as their favourite and ACtA as their second favourite... with LotR almost always dead last.

    Maybe a better focus for this topic to start taking is why ITB and ACtA tend to be everyones top favourites and why Thirdspace, River of Souls, and Legend of the Rangers (in paticular) failed to make such a dent on most of the fanbase.

    "In the Beginning" and a "A Call to Arms" were my favorites. I thought that ACtA was more action packed and it had Galen so it can't be bad ;-). ItB was more story focused (all IMO of course) and there are some real dead spots in it. I have not see either one in a while so I won't be able to give you examples of that.

    "In the beginning" is my favorite.The battle of the line,the music,
    the President's speech.Wonderous!
    Also hearing Londo's confessions & regrets sheds a whole new light on him.

    "In the Beginning" is definately the best, hands down. And Peter David's written adaptation of it is a fun read as well.

    A Call to Arms is in the movie set because yeah, as everyone knows it isn't a pilot.

    Legend of the Rangers, on the other hand, will not be in the movie set because it is a pilot. Which is quite fine by me ;P

    TG *is* a pilot, but it will be featured in the B5 movie set.

    Whereas ACtA is not a pilot .

    It was a B5 movie, but not the pilot for 'Crusade'. The function of a pilot is to sell a series. That doesn't apply to ACtA. My guess is that ACtA will be featured in the movie set.
