    Signed up about two months ago and am watching 2-3 of her videos a week -- it's fun jumping around between episodes. Think she "didn't know what to make" of parts of Grey 17, while she really (really) liked Late Delivery from Avalon (a Michael York fan). She has finished Season 4 and In The Beginning as of last week, but won't be starting season 5 till the end of September. Liked her comment after War Without End Part II: "This show just exists to break me".
    She just today uploaded the free video for Exercise of Vital Powers in she likened the Shadow implant defenses to two-factor authentication! ? The picture overlay was a lot less annoying in this one.

    Before my previous post, I also watched her videos for Thirdspace, which, along with The Gathering, is on a separate Babylon 5: Movies Playlist. I'm looking forward to seeing her reaction video(s) for In the Beginning - I suspect she got emotional when Sinclair appeared.

      That is a distinct possibility , along with the appearance of someone who has Always Been Here. The "when the watch" debate did appear in the comments, and it seemed she appreciated ITB far more by watching it after S1, WWE, and of course Atonement. If she posts in the order she viewed them, ITB should appear right after "Deconstruction of Falling Stars".
      "This is not a clear and present danger? I must read the rule book again."

        That's when ITB first aired (and I first watched it), so I guess that's the "official" order. Back when I walked some new viewers through the series I showed them ITB after "Atonement". My thought was to introduce them to Lefcourt when he and John were on friendly terms, so that it would be more impactful when they are at odds in "Endgame". But by the time we got to "Endgame" they either didn't notice or forgot about Lefcourt.

          I just recently started following Medusa as well. Great fun! And I feel so sad for her as all the characters that she takes a liking to, Jeff, Talia, Kosh and so on disappears in one way or another. I am also very impressed with how many details she remembers and immediately catches when they appear again several episodes later.

                Medusa has started a Babylon 5: Season 5 playlist and is moving through the episodes at a rapid pace. She also doesn't need to intermittently superimpose an image over the playback any more.

                At this writing she just watched S5E5 "Learning Curve", and saw the opening credits for the first time this season. I noticed that she was in tears after the credits. I'm not sure if that was because of Sinclair's appearance in them, or because of Ivanova's absence from them.

                The fact that Susan is gone seems to have hit Medusa hard. It will be interesting to see her reaction to "Sleeping in Light".

                  On the Patreon side she just released S5E14 "Meditations on the Abyss", and mentioned how she has realized the series is drawing to a close. It's going to get worse for some characters before it gets better - Garibaldi recovers, G'Kar and Lyta go into sort-of exile, Lennier "on the run", while Londo is, uhm... WWE Pt2.

                  Guess there are always the remaining films and Crusade, but they will be going their separate ways in... ...seven episodes with Objects in Motion. Then she'll have to make it through "Objects at Rest", and hopefully she rests up before tackling "Sleeping in Light".

                    At this writing, she's posted through S5E6 "Strange Relations" on YouTube. Key quote: "Like to know that John was a little bit of a wildcard when he was younger kind of makes a bit of sense, because that man loves a nuclear bomb."

                      She is not wrong.
                      I am impressed with how fast she picks up on most of the plot lines and threads of the story right away. I did not do that. For half of them it took me the second viewing to notice the first hints for.

                        I'm interested in seeing the rest of her reactions to Season 5. So far she seems to be enjoying it as much as the first four seasons. Given her sometimes very emotional reactions, I'm really curious to see how see reacts to "Sleeping in Light"​
