    ...your bank teller's name tag reads "Lydia Kosh" but you read "Lyta Kosh" and you're kind of disappointed when she speaks in full, unambiguous sentences.

            You know you've been watching too much Babylon 5 when someone tells you tha the space program is a waste of time and that colonizing other worlds is a waste of time and you quote Jeffrey Sinclair:

            "No. We have to stay here, and there's a simple reason why. Ask ten different scientists about the environment, population control, genetics - and you'll get ten different answers. But there's one thing every scientist on the planet agrees on: whether it happens in a hundred years, or a thousand years, or a million years, eventually our sun will grow cold, and go out. When that happens, it won't just take us, it'll take Marilyn Monroe, and Lao-tsu, Einstein, Maruputo, Buddy Holly, Aristophanes - all of this. All of this was for nothing, unless we go to the stars."

                  Delenn, Neroon, Narn, Epsilon, Agamemnon, John Sheridan, Babylon, Galen, Susan, Franklin, Morden, probably many others I can't think of at the moment.

                          A little extreme but hey ... your prerogative right?
                          Already I get some flak from my fiance about my B5 posters. She hasn't watched the series ... one day maybe ... but she's virulantly anti Sci-Fi and it's all Star Trek's fault. Fortunately for her, my ex girlfriend accidentally destroyed my pewter Babylon 5 station that I had on my television. So, she doesn't have to grimace over that.
                          I have scored a minor victory in that I am allowed ONE of my B5 posters when we move into our new place ... as long as it's framed.
                          Hmmm if she does end up watching the sjhow ... she'll finally understand why it's so important to me that we watch the sun rise.

                          It took me three years to get my fiance to give B5 a chance, he was absolutely resolute that he would hate it, again due to Star Trek. He did but me the DVD box sets though...
                          We had been through a really bad patch and were disscussing things we could do together to help us get back on track, when he said it: "I suppose I could give that B5 a try.!"

                          I was very happy, but kept my elation to myself, as I was well aware that my enthusiasm for the show had put him off also, I think he felt if he was dissapointed with the show it would upset me! I really just wanted him to watch a few episodes... And see how it went.


                          Three weeks later he completed his first viewing and was completely amazed that he had been so wrong

                          I was so glad especially on hearing of Andreas passing as, he knewwhy it affected me so and was very supportive.

                            You know you've been watching too much Babylon-5 when you don't want to see another episode for AT LEAST.......ermm.....1 or 2 days.

                              Great to hear. I think my fiance will be hard to convince in this regard and figure the best way to approach it, is to not approach it at all. I have a feeling, she'll get bored one weekend and start rummaging through my vast DVD collection and probably watch the show on her own. Whether or not she can watch any further than a few epi's is the question. TKO and/or Infection might kill it for her altogether.

                                Perhaps, it is best to leave it for her to discover...

                                The only other suggestion, is to try and think of the episode that would appeal to her sense of humour, or personal preference in programmes. Only you know her well enough to know if such an epsiode exists...

                                e.g. For me, as a non interested party who heard the show incessantly as my brother watched it, it was Ivannova's Wit and attitude that drew me in... I just liked her. I wanted to know more, and as I got to know her by watching a few episodes, I came to love the others too!

                                Pick an epsiode with a theme or focusing on a charactor who she will buy into....
