    Who are you? What do you want?

    To be serious: this was mentioned earlier asking the Great Maker: "Do you ever sleep?"

    But I don't need to iterate all other good points, why B5 is so outstanding as a tv-show, must I?
    I hope not. That might take up some serious time.
    Yes. Indeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed.

    Much like Tolkien did when he created Lord of the Rings.

    Do you ever sleep?

    Emilie G. Gatfield tweet:
    "Also - do you ever sleep?"

    I first did read "Garfield": a typical cat-question, I supposed.

    JMS re-tweet (07-30):
    "NO I DON'T SLEEP THE MUSIC NEVER STOPS COFFEE COFFEE COFFEE I OWN THE DARKNESS THE NIGHT AND THE BELLS NEVER STOP THE ROLLING AND THE TOLLING OF THE BELLS, BELLS, BELLS, BELLS, BELLS SHUT UP I'M TYPING NO YOU SHUT UP YOU'RE NOT THE BOSS OF ME"

    ROTFL

    100 years B5 in intricate detail

    Now THIS is in the right place (thread)

    JMS re-tweet to Barnabus O. Scott:

    "To be clear, by "all of it" I wasn't just referring to B4...I worked out 100 years either way of our story in intricate detail, 1,000 years in fairly decent detail, and a million years either way in broad strokes. Because that's just the kind of hairpin I am."

    It's not really an all new finding.
    But this would be far more as the published BABYLON 5 TIMELINE.
    Think about:
    100 years B5 universe history written notes in "intricate detail"!
    And notes about another 1,000 years history "fairly decent detailed".


    WOAH!
    I can't imagine how many story plot equivalents this means.

    JMS has a wish for his birthday!

    J. Michael Straczynski - Hang with JMS

    Since today is my birthday, I get to make a wish, and this is what that wish would be: that you reading this would generously donate $10 (more is great but 10 totally works) to one of the two schools listed below that I once attended which do such good work for their students.

    The first is the Chula Vista High School Foundation, which creates scholarships, provides endless assistance for students and their families, and has been crucial in helping students from low-income families go to college to follow their dreams: https://cvhsfoundation.com/ways-to-give/

    The second is the Southwestern Junior College Food Pantry, which helps feed low-income students who have a hard time affording school and would otherwise go hungry. A noble cause by any definition. Thank you for helping either of these. http://www.swccd.edu/index.aspx?page=3653

    Very good point, Looney.
    We'll keep track of the AT&T policy.

    Even if I concede that JMS isn't a technics mastermind, I think in a such weighty statement he would thoroughly argue.

    The conspiration variant would be: he unconditionally wants to push up the people to flashmob WB and Amazon for B5HD.

    I tend to the first - but dreaming the flashmob.
    Wouldn't be the worst.

    To be serious:

    Why not doing now what they didn't do then.
    What would it cost to convert the taped VFX to digital HD with nowadays equipment?
    I think: no immense cost per ep.
    (I know the whole story: WB won't never ever do anything with B5...)

    I don't remember seeing scratches on Go90 either, but my memory is likely failing me. I'm sure if I went back through all my posts during the Go90 run I'd find one where I said I noticed scratches. LOL

    I had sampled the Go90 version of Ep1 back then and it was nothing special. Below DVD quality.

    Furthermore, I think all the digital versions - certainly the Go90 - but even the more exotic VUDU one I believe, have the live action and FX scenes run with the same framerate, which is not correct. Only the DVD plays correctly the live action at 23.976 and the FX at 30 (or 60i).

    This frame disparity between pure live action and FX is also one of the reasons I don't get how would they even put the FX on film, as JMS thinks they did. How do you record 60i on film? Film is inherently a format which does not understand of lines and does not understand of interlacing.

    Anyway.

    In short:
    Best picture quality disregarding FX scenes: DVD
    Best FX quality: VUDU
    Most fluent motion for both live action and FX: DVD

    So the DVD in many ways it's still the best version.
