    I just saw a report that said the opening scene of 'Grey 17 is missing'...is missing. Can't make that up!

      Why can't you?! Last time I checked you had creativity. Did something happen?! Did someone steal your creativity?



      So being a popsicle for the last two weeks might be making Looney a little more Looney than usual.

        "I do not think that is possible."

        Reports are getting screwy. Some say eps are fixed, others say not. Some sound issues on some eps, mislabeling of eps.

        Whoever the 'project manager' for this 'labor of love' was, really kinda should probably be fired.

          Looks like episode times for Babylon Squared and Hour of the Wolf are correct on HBO Max; episodes still short on itunes.

          Episode order is airdate on itunes, kind of random on HBO max (episodes re-arranged in season 1, only production order in season 2 which flips Divided Loyalties and Long Twilight creating a small continuity error with Delenn, back to airdate order for 3 - 5).

          On color correction - looks better on HBO Max, but still noticeably different when it switches to comp shots. Although most of the live action looks better on HBO/itunes than my Vudu episodes, and the Vudu episodes skip more frames, the Vudu episode colors don't flip between shots like that and it seems more blended. For example, it changes when Marcus is about to use his pike or when Elric plays his hologram of Vir.

          The colors do look quite vibrant and I imagine some of it was intended by John Flinn at the time (green tint for green sector, blue tint for blue sector) but some of it cannot be right - the most noticeable one I saw a big color issue was There All the Honor Lies where near the end Delenn and Lennier are completely purple; 99% sure that was not the intended color.

          Overall I like the look of the CGI and the 5.1 sound is quite good through my speakers.

          I had started a rewatch after reading Joe's autobiography; this release was good timing. Hopefully it stays around and doesn't disappear from streaming again.

          [additional note there: I bought season 1 in 2013. It was full screen at the time, season 1 only - they auto replaced all the episodes with the new full-screen versions in my account. Babylon Squared now only 41 minutes]
