  • Favorite Male B5 character

    Alright, we have the female thread going, so to save us all from being politically incorrect, post!

    Why no poll? Well since it is pretty much a matter of individual preference, it seems a moot point : /

    in other words Cronan, you were too lazy to make a poll with choices?

    but i am a good sport. i will play along.

    i would have to go with Londo. and mainly because of the performance of Peter Jurasic(sp?). he could be so funny or aggravating or powerful depending on the situation. he was dramatic and humorous and i just loved how he was portrayed.

    so mark me down for LONDO.

      People often choose Londo, but in my opinion, G'Kar is the most interesting male character in the show (I know, big surprise, coming from me! <g>). But not just because I like to look at him, and because Andreas does such a great job: G'Kar has, IMHO, the most broad and diverse developmental arc of the male characters.

      Londo, for all his changes, is always the same thing: a politico. He may go from self-serving, gambling, drinking Londo to the more serious Londo, but he's still just going from one political position to the next: ineffectual ambassador to power-broker ambassador to Prime Minister to Emperor.

      G'Kar, on the other hand, goes through similar _personality_ changes (self-serving to more serious), but he also makes a sea-change in how he interacts with the world. We don't see him before the events of the series but we know that he was a resistance leader, so you could say he starts out as a warrior; goes through his political life-cycle as ambassador and then (non-ambassadorial) representative of the Narn on Babylon 5; then martyr; then he's back to a political position as he works for the Alliance; then religious icon to his people. So, from warrior to priest, with a few stages in between. It's a fascinating journey, and between the excellent writing by JMS and the excellent performances by Andreas, I think G'Kar wins hands down for most interesting male character in the series.

            Have to agree with Aisling, with the added proviso that G'Kar got all the best lines and had the most dinstinguished voice.

            Neroon is my second choice, and for exactly the same reasons as for G'Kar, just in fewer installments.
            I believe that when we leave a place, part of it goes with us and part of us remains. Go anywhere in the station, when it is quiet, and just listen. After a while, you will hear the echoes of all our conversations, every thought and word we've exchanged. Long after we are gone .. our voices will linger in these walls for as long as this place remains. But I will admit .. that the part of me that is going .. will very much miss the part of you that is staying.

              --------------------------
              On the contrary, exactly the opposite. Your choice is only limited by the number of male characters on the show. With respect to the forum, I'd tend to avoid the clogging-up of dead threads.

              Also, more importantly, it wont matter to you if a hundred other people choose Morden as their favorite character (: P), your fav character(s) stays the same no matter what, assuming you have one.

                hey Cronan,

                i was only making a joke. did you see the emoticons?

                secondly. it DOES matter to me who other people choose as favorites because i like hearing why they chose the person and it is also FUN to see if a particular person is favored by more people. hence, why i came up with a poll.

                the only thing that does cause me pause is when someone will make their choice and while doing so, attempt to denigrate someone else's choice only because it differs from their own. that is not cool in my book.

                  My favourite character has been, and probably always will be, Commander Sinclair, just for what his character represented, how he performed his job when he was in charge of B5 as well as how much was set up for him from the first episode... just always thought it was rather neat, and very intriguing. And honestly, the pain he expressed over what happened to him at the Battle of the Line in The gathering and in And the Sky was Full of Stars and elsewhere is still, to me, one of the most emotional moments in the whole series.

                    Yeah, what Aisling and Grumbler said.

                    G'kar's speeches still move me to action and tears, and continue to inspire and enlighten.

                    After G'kar, Londo is my fav.

                        Mark me down for Londo. Always the tortured patriot, he evolves from buffoon to dupe, political henchman/mastermind, reluctant/unsung hero, honorable statesman and tragic figure - what a ride.
