    It's a shame that 'body swap' episode JMS talked about never happened.

    Kosh: Good!

      Yeah, I'm betting that's one reason that he wants to use the original cast in other parts if he can. He *knows* how talented they are.

        Not only does Joe know how talented the original cast is, but after working together over more than five years, Joe and the cast developed an understanding and trust that would be difficult to replicate. He is very familiar with how each of them approaches his material. Joe also understands and writes to their individual and collective psyche.

        I would find it interesting to see the 'body swap' episode that Joe has mentioned with Peter Jurasik playing both G'Kar and Londo. For that matter, Peter could potentially play both G'Kar and Londo in any future B5 related production.

        • Now that Sense8 is launching, maybe we will hear more about B5 reboot?

          I'd like to see the original concept filmed with Sinclair staying with the station for the duration.
          No Sheridan?? I often forget how many times JMS had to adapt the story due to circumstances beyond his control.

          I saw JMS interviewed on Emmy TV Legends - when asked about the story if things had gone to plan, he declined to comment.
          That would be the movie I want to see.

          • No real news, but here's what JMS recently said in an interview so apparently the plan is still in place.

            N: One last question… What can you tell us about the current status of Babylon 5? Will we see more?

            JMS: I still maintain the film rights to Babylon 5, although Warners owns the television rights. I would love to do a feature film in the Babylon 5 universe and kind of reboot that for a larger audience, with a proper budget that we never had on the series. So I’m hoping this year to write a B5 screenplay, and then get it financed at a proper level and then do it in 2016 and reboot the franchise. It couldn’t be a continuation because we’ve lost several actors and not enough folks saw the original. It would be a reboot.

                    Yeah, I love that picture, if only for the contrast. Believe it or not, I've had people think that he and I were the same person based on the fact that we have the same initials.

                        I wouldn't shy away from having an opinion! I saw nothing wrong with the post, if you're unsure about a new B5 film / reboot... then fair play. Each to their own.

                        If JMS does go back to B5, I really doubt it'll have much in common with his work on Sense8. If anything, I think it'll be something interesting, at the very least. The original series will always be there, intact and awesome.

                        • I didn't see anything wrong with the post, either. I just didn't have a response that amounted to anything better than 'I don't agree'. But if you'd like to discuss why you're worried, that could be fun.

                          • Same sentiment as Jan... it's not like there's exactly a roaring trade in B5 based conversation of late. I flip flop in terms of what I think of a reboot / film, but I love B5 enough to want to see more.

                            • Bring on the sock puppets or anything that is B5 related!

                              Here's to JMS continued successful ventures, and to a couple of disappointments - Forbidden Planet and The Flickering Light.

                              "G'Quon wrote, There is a greater darkness than the one we fight. It is the darkness of the soul that has lost its way.
                              The war we fight is not against powers and principalities – it is against chaos and despair. Greater than the death of flesh is the death of hope, the death of dreams. Against this peril we can never surrender."

                              Here's to that shining beacon in space.

                                It did make me um, not really finding the right word as I wouldn't say concerned. I guess it was more that JMS commented that it was being done. He was writing it in 2015 and moving forward with producing it regardless of what WB's choice ended up being. So to go from something so definite to what sounded like a maybe was what kind of threw me.
