    [QUOTE=circularREASON;59069][QUOTE=LightStorm;59066] I should point out however, that when B5 was originally on, way back first time around, on Channel 4 it did fill the same early evening slot - except for season 3 which was on later at night.

    Season 4. Season 3 was on sunday afternoon originally (the memories of me and the family sitting round watching z'ha'dum and wondering if he was dead while eating sunday lunch - priceless), season 4 was on at near midnight. My sister lost interest in B5 completely due to the C4 timeslot for S4.
    Was it 4? I forget, I knew it was one of the mid seasons. Thanks for the re-steer though.

    FX also has two plus channels on Sky, timeshifting their entire schedule by one hour and two hours, so in fact you can watch each episode at 5pm, 6pm and 7pm if you so desire.



    I do note, however, that the FX website is showing B5 as being at 6pm each evening not 5pm ... so that would be 6pm, 7pm and 8pm instead.

    Not sure about FX and what they are aiming at because they have put BURN NOTICE in that time slot too and that is an altogether different show from B5. Still it will be good to see B5 on TV again, even if the demographic seems a bit inconsistant.

    Having said that FX is a good channel and available in HD over here. We've watched DEXTER, NCIS, TRUE BLOOD, NIP/TUCK in HD and they all look fantastic. In fact alot of the stuff on ur SKY HD's hard drive is FX progs.

    Not a bad home for B5 to land at.

    After a few months on FX I hope Babylon 5 will be repeated on a channel I can receive. 5 pm suggests they are aiming the show at boys. Men are still coming home from work and women are assumed not to watch Sci-Fi.

    Ironically, the ECW show on Syfy has the best actual wrestling out of WWE's shows. The others mainly comprise of the guys blathering on the mic all night.

    Is this FX affiliated with the beloved channel here?

    syfy and SPike

    syfy (don't get me started on the dain bramaged rename from SciFi..) runs their WWE wrastlin on Tuesday nites, whereas Spike TV does their (TNA I believe) on Thursday night. Just think Hulk Hogan switched from WWE to TNA, makes ya just wanna get up out that rocking chair, swig down some geritol and start body slamming someone....

    Thanks!

    I don't know why Syfy channel doesn't show it. I would think they should show something like this instead of wrestling on Thurday nights. SYFY and wrestling just dont go together.

    That is good news... too bad i can't watch it here in the US. Would be interesting to see what kind of response it would get in the US nowdays... could help give WB a push on doing a movie if it got decent numbers.

    B5 on FX cable channel in the UK

    Found on B5TV and reposted by permission:

    If anyone can receive the British cable channel 'FX', they might be interested to know that (at last ) Babylon 5 is being broadcast, starting with the pilot, "The Gathering", on Monday 9th November (5pm UK time) and following that with the episodes of series 1 on successive weekdays (at 6pm) - repeating each week's episodes on the following Sunday.
    Been too long since B5 was on TV!
