Babylon 5

I just finished Walter Koening's autobiography "Warped Factors" (thanks to Cromely's recommendation). There's a lot of discussion in it about how good he is, not only on "Star Trek" but "Babylon 5". People seem to love this show, the way they loved "The X Files", "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", "Firefly" and other shows I ignored when they aired. The first two seasons are free on Hulu so I'm giving it a try.

I hate it. I'm nine episodes in and it's terrible. Anyone a fan of this show? Can anyone tell me how good it's going to get? "Star Trek: the Next Generation" and "Buffy" had lousy first seasons and now they are two of my favorite shows. Someone give me some support.

This is the pilot episode. It is garbage, isn't it?

the first season is all about set up of the story and it has a lot episodes that are not the best of the series. But in those episodes there are all kinds of clues and stuff that get important further on in the series. My advice is keep on watching the series picks up speed in season 2 and the last episodes of season 1 are also very nice. And you are right the pilot wasn't that good but it all gets better.
