    Glad you agree. Some of the piano pieces in Season 2 are just wonderful. Put me in mind of Arvo Part (although no one surpasses 'Alina' in terms of sheer beauty), or perhaps more fittingly Lubomyr Melnyk (he plays what he calls 'continuous music', really nice flowing stuff).

    I can think of a handul of other artists that dabble in modern classical / ambient if you like that kind of thing... Nils Frahm, Peter Broderick (only his 'Float' album), Olafur Arnalds. I'm sure I can think of more if anyone is interested.

      for me, the shame, the real shame, is no blu ray release for season two. I own season one on blu ray and it looks stunning, utterly stunning. What most people don't realise the the huge difference between broadcast HD and release quality blu rya, there is a massive difference, the show on blu ray, just the opening of destiny sailing across your screen in incredible detail, without even pressing play, just blew me away.

      You may take my opinion with a pinch of salt, I have been doing a weekly stargate podcast for nigh on five years now, so a somewhat prejudiced towards the show in any format, but I do love robert carlylse, if you want more of him, check out once upon a time.

      "There are no good wars. War is always the worst possible way to resolve differences. It degenerates and corrupts both sides to ever more sordid levels of existence, in their need to gain an advantage over the enemy. Those actively involved in combat are almost always damaged goods for the rest of their lives. If their bodies don't bear scars, their minds do, ofttimes both. Many have said it before, but it can't be said to enough, war is hell. "

        You're quite right; the show is stunning on Blu-Ray. Seeing it on Blu-Ray was what made me understand why JMS was tempted to reboot B5. (I love the cinematography of B5, but still, to have such breathtaking visuals...) That no Blu-Ray was released of the second season is unbelievable. The only good thing is that the Season 2 DVDs are the most high-quality DVDs I've ever seen. You can tell a difference, but not nearly as much as with other shows.

          Yes, I can absolutely imagine it looks great in hi-def. The visual production was, generally speaking, very good. It's such a shame it only got two seasons to chart Destiny’s voyage. Frustrating when there are so many mediocre shows that run for multiple seasons. Ah well… It reminds me just how lucky we were to get five full seasons of B5!
