    4-River of Souls
    5-Thirdspace

    Wish we could figure out where The Memory of Shadows would have gone in each of our lineups!

    I found ITB to be the one I love the most. I especially love the music for it . . . in Order for me, I suppose my list goes as follows:

    1) In The Beginning
    2) A Call To Arms
    3) River of Souls
    4) Thirdspace

    Thirdspace is at the bottom because I watched it too many times (d'oh!) and A Call to Arms was so new and developed the story of the B5 universe more, and River of Souls I liked that Soundtrack too and love that concept.

    I dont include LotR because if I did, it wouuld be #1,259,742 on my list

    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.
    Re. letting the old cast go, I did that with Crusade. That wasn't the problem with the Rangers pilot. The problem was that the story was weak (seemingly pointless and irrational). There a lot of things that could have been done to make it more interesting, e.g. showing the artifact (or whatever it was) being found on that alien planet (potentially by MAX EILERSON). showing the probe that came back deformed/distorted, etc.

    Why? Just because it is the best science fiction novel ever written?

    RCmodeler,

    You are another victim of the loss of the second-person-impersonal pronoun of "one" in general use in English.

    It is clear to me that Ranger1 meant "One can call TS anything one likes but dull is not one of them" in the impersonal sense. "You" was not meant to mean "RCmodeler" in this context, so don't feel personally offended.

    As a matter of fact, I tend to agree with you. I found TS rather dull myself, because even the attemped drama and action came off as disinteresting. To me, it was more like the old Del Rey B5 novels - I just didn't consider the charactors to be the Sheridan et al that I knew.

    I did like the dream sequences, though.

    Yes, you did: "You can call TS anything you like but dull is not one of them". You're telling me what I can or can not say.

    P.S. Ranger1: Rather than debating with me/us, why don't you go read "The Mote in God's Eye" like I suggested? Trust me, you'll like it. In fact, it was so popular it had a sequel.

    Link: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...glance&s=books

    In the year 3016, the Second Empire of Man spans hundreds of star systems, thanks to the faster-than-light Alderson Drive. No other intelligent beings have ever been encountered, not until a light sail probe enters a human system carrying a dead alien. The probe is traced to the Mote, an isolated star in a thick dust cloud, and an expedition is dispatched.
    In the Mote the humans find an ancient civilization--at least one million years old--that has always been bottled up in their cloistered solar system for lack of a star drive. The Moties are welcoming and kind, yet rather evasive about certain aspects of their society. It seems the Moties have a dark problem, one they've been unable to solve in over a million years.

    This is the first collaboration between Niven and Pournelle, two masters of hard science fiction, and it combines Pournelle's interest in the military and sociology with Niven's talent for creating interesting, believable aliens. The novel meticulously examines every aspect of First Contact, from the Moties' biology, society, and art, to the effects of the meeting on humanity's economics, politics, and religions. And all the while suspense builds as we watch the humans struggle toward the truth

    I have to say i nearly turned thridspace off at least twice during watching and found it a real strain to complete. Yes it was dull because the story wasnt interesting or at least not in a different way ( it appeared to me like a bad version of event horizon) .
    I like action, but only if there is some relevance behind it, the drama didnt get me caught up enough in the story to be interested in the action (ditto for LotR). River of souls i won't comment on (suffice to say Lochley: Underware)

    I love The Gathereing, its just one problem after another, and the resolution of one problem being the cause of another - there is never a point in that movie that i switch off. It fascinates me.

    In the beginning was good, and was made believable - i really felt we were on the brink of anhilation and that is what it would be like - no cheesyness there.
    A call to arms though is probably my second favourite (havent seen it for ages mind). That had the real feeling of being a B5 movie (unlike TS, LotR and RoS <---- these are like the Ep1's of B5)

    Don't get me wrong, i don't want to slag any of the films off immensley, i guess Jms shot himself in the foot when he wrote B5, my expectations when he writes are so high (he is the shining beacon of light - in a sea of over priced over produced crap ).
