  • The BIG question about the war...

    So having seen the "epic" War without end episodes, and trying to get my head around the amount of time shifting that takes place in it..lol, one key question remains that I found through a bit of research, hopefully some of the members here can explain an answer for it, here it is and I quote:

    "The assumption at the end of the episode seems to be that by successfully pulling Babylon 4 back in time, the crew has averted the Shadow attack on Babylon 5 in eight days, in which Ivanova sends out the distress call heard in part one. Does that mean that Sinclair's flashforward to the firefight aboard B5 has also been averted? What about Lady Ladira's vision of the destruction of Babylon 5? ("Signs and Portents") If all those glimpses of the future are no longer true, how much validity do the remaining ones have? Each of them could be from a completely different possible future, none of which will end up ever taking place."

    So that question got me wondering about all what happens to Londo 17 years afterwards does it REALLY happen...i.e city in flames, he's nearly dead...etc....

    Lady Ladira admitted that some of her dreams were fluid and open to interpretation, take for example B5, which did still end in fire.

    Yeah, well, the rent is cheap, the pay is decent and I get to make my own hours.

      At the moment I am coming towards the end of season 3, so when the whole series is concluded I'll probably get a better picture of things..

        And then you'll start back at the beginning to see how much you missed.

          I'll doubt I'll go back to watching season 1 and 2, in the near future anyway...I still gotta see the other T.V movies, (only ones I have seen are In the beginning and the gathering..) plus i still have to see the Crusader/crusade series, so quite a bit to get through yet!

            Jan is right though, you won't believe the payoff you will get as a viewer when you watch B5 a second time.

              Well Sheridan questions this very scenario of Londo in the future later in the season, and makes a particular decision in hopes of preventing it. A couple of scenes in the fifth season should make it clear whether this future takes place or not.

                . . . . or a third . . . or a fourth etc, but especially the second time.

                After several times I still notice new things . . .

                    In a way...

                    In a way I am watching B5 for a 2nd time because I saw it originally back in 94/95 onwards, although seeing it again after all these years feels like I am watching it for the 1st time, I haven't seen In the Beginning before season 3, more I have seen it whilst I am watching Season 3 of which I am near to the end of that and will make my way to Season 4

                      Same here. Each time I appreciate B5 even more. For me no other show manages to do that, except maybe The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

                        Now that I have a bigger TV, I started watching it again for like the 15th time, lol and I still notice things. I can now see the writings on the monitors and signs and just all the little details.

                          Funnily enough I have the same feeling about LOTR

                          For me B5 is very much comparable to LOTR, as an epic story, though B5 has its own particular identity.

                          Now I will have to start watrching B5 yet another time, now I got a bigger screen it's like an addiction

                            I agree..

                            Once B5 "hooks" you, you get immersed into the whole story/backstories of it completley, what I cant quite grasp is the fact that an EMMY AWARD WINNING show, never made it onto the Big cinema screen, something it most deserved but Warner Bros. didn't see it that way...
