  • What order should I view Season 1 Signs and Portents?

    I was wondering what Order I should view season 1 "Signs and Portents" I can't find a listing anywhere on here. I know from the B5 scripts that Mind War was pushed forward (And another one I think was mentioned.) So I wondered what the correct order was supposed to be. And what was the date that B5 officially opened?

    Thanks a lot for your help. (And here crossing my fingers that B5 comes out in Blu-Ray.)

    1. 1- 2 103 26 Jan 94 Midnight on the Firing Line
    2. 1- 3 102 02 Feb 94 Soul Hunter
    3. 1- 4 104 09 Feb 94 Born to the Purple
    4. 1- 5 101 16 Feb 94 Infection
    5. 1- 6 108 23 Feb 94 The Parliament of Dreams
    6. 1- 7 110 02 Mar 94 Mind War
    7. 1- 8 107 09 Mar 94 The War Prayer
    8. 1- 9 106 16 Mar 94 And the Sky Full of Stars
    9. 1-10 113 20 Apr 94 Deathwalker
    10. 1-11 105 27 Apr 94 Believers
    11. 1-12 111 04 May 94 Survivors
    12. 1-13 114 11 May 94 By Any Means Necessary
    13. 1-14 116 18 May 94 Signs and Portents
    14. 1-15 119 25 May 94 TKO
    15. 1-16 109 06 Jul 94 Grail
    16. 1-17 122 13 Jul 94 Eyes
    17. 1-18 115 20 Jul 94 Legacies
    18. 1-19 120 27 Jul 94 A Voice in the Wilderness part 1
    19. 1-20 121 03 Aug 94 A Voice in the Wilderness part 2
    20. 1-21 118 10 Aug 94 Babylon Squared
    21. 1-22 117 17 Aug 94 The Quality of Mercy
    22. 1-23 112 26 Oct 94 Chrysalis

      So JMS hasn't posted his intended order then? I know in other posts he has mentioned the order for all most all of seasons, 2-5. I just wanted to find out how he wanted it to be so I can sit down and watch them in that order.

      I know 103,102,101 are first and 112 is last but everything else I'm not sure about. Presumably production order but the in the first season that's not a guarantee.

        Wouldn't it be this?

          Thank you. That's a nice site but unfortunately not entirely correct. For example And Now for a Word and There All the Honor Lies are backwards based on what JMS has said on this site. Which is why I'm trying to find out if he has said/documented anything about his intended order of season one.

          "To allow for more time to finish the EFX work and some audio work,
          we'll probably reverse the first few episodes and start with "There All
          the Honor Lies" at the end of April, and spring "And Now for a Word" as
          the first true May sweeps episode."

          I'm crossing my fingers the JMS will post an answer to this for us all.

            Sorry, Shades...JMS doesn't post here and as far as we know, doesn't read here either. The archives are copies of JMS' posts from (mostly) the moderated Usenet group rec.arts.sf.tv.babylon5.moderated.

                This is the list as PTEN had it and the current online WB channel has it:

                1. Midnight on the Firing Line
                2. Soul Hunter
                3. Born to the Purple
                4. Infection
                5. The Parliament of Dreams
                6. Mind War
                7. The War Prayer
                8. And the Sky Full of Stars
                9. Deathwalker
                10. Believers
                11. Survivors
                12. Signs and Portents
                13. By Any Means Necessary
                14. The Quality of Mercy
                15. Grail
                16. Eyes
                17. TKO
                18. A Voice in the Wilderness Part I
                19. A Voice in the Wilderness Part II
                20. Babylon Squared
                21. Legacies
                22. Chrysalis

                As to whether this was the intended order - circumstances shifted things around here and there. jms would sometimes write episodes so that they could be aired in a number of orders (he specifically said Voice and Babylon Squared were written this way); some episodes like Grail were held back for EFX work (the creature); some got moved because PTEN wanted it (Mind War).

                  That's interesting. Where is that website JoeD80?

                    The site is thewb.com. They cycle through seasons though so only one season is viewable at a time. I don't know how often they cycle through (currently season 3 is up)
