    My opinion, TKO was worse than both of those. I never want to hear the word "Mutai" ever again.

      I'm a big fan of Michael O'Hare, but I think he had to endure some pretty dumb episodes.

      Has everyone forgotten "Believers?"

      How about the one with the guy who turned into a mechanical killing machine? I can't even remember the name of that episode.

        Was that the one where Sinclair went crazy and went after some monster, then Garibaldi confronted him about having a deathwish?

        Cause that scene with Garibaldi and Sinclair was awesome . . . . the rest of the episode . . . not so much.

          Actually, I liked "Believers", but "Infection" was definitely a so-so monster loose on the ship/station/base episode with one exception. There was a brilliant character moment at the end between Garibaldi and Sinclair, when Mr. G. is asking Sinclair whether he's just looking for a reason to die. IMO, the only redeeming part of "Infection."

            Though it wasn't aired first, 'Infection' was the first episode written.

            I liked believers a lot, if for no other reason than it told me that this show didn't have a magic reset button. I also like David Gerrold when he's writing his darker stuff.

              I wonder if jms had known that Mary Kay Adams was going to refuse to perform Na'Toth on camera the way she did during her auditions when they recasted, would jms had tried to convince Julie to have done Na'Toth as a guest character for the first couple of episodes in season two. She obviously liked the character otherwise I don't see why she would have reprised it in season five.

              Oh the power of hindsight, eh?
              According to JMS, Mary Kay Adams nailed the auditions but when it came to finally portraying the role on television, she switched and tried to play the role more feminine. God only knows what she was thinking, but after several episodes of spirited disagreement between the parties involved, JMS gave up and dropped a mass-driven asteroid on her.

              As for the makeup, JCB stuck with it as long as possible - more longer than Mary Woronov (of "Eating Raoul" fame ), who shot one episode as the great Ko'Dath and decided it was definitely not for her.

                That explains everything! I wondered about her in that role from the moment she opened her mouth..., no before that. She bore absolutely NO physical resemblance to Na'Toth, the original.

                That squeaky little super fem voice was REALLY annoying, for a Narn. No, for any part.
