Babylon 5 Hunger Satisfied Posted by: from: on The Lost Tales DVD is new Babylon 5 DVD movie that has been long awaited. But brace yourself, this doesn't quite feel like a traditional B5 episode. It is two separate stories told on a much smaller, personal scale. There aren't many extras (as in actors) so the station feels a bit empty. But once I got past this, I enjoyed The Lost Tales very much. What was truly wonderful was the special features. In my opinion, the disk was worth it just for that. There is some very funny footage of JMS demonstrating his plan to film the movies with sock puppets. And there are wonderful interviews with each of the B5 principals. Plus behind the scenes stuff, and Q&A with JMS. The Lost Tales is not B5 as we remember it, but the spirit is still the same, the stories are still engaging, and the graphics are better.

A Must For Fans! Posted by: from: New Orleans, La. on It's always good to go home again, but like Thomas Wolfe wrote, "You can't go home again"! It was really great to see Bruce Boxleitner as President John Sheridan, Tracy Scoggins as Captain, now Colonel Elizabeth Lochley and Peter Woodward as Technomage Galen Their performances were great and the stories were good Even the guest performers were good! However, it was not quite the same! The sets that were available seemed limited and you missed seeing the familiar faces of the rest the cast! Also, there was not much action! Still, it was an enjoyable dvd! There are actually two separate stories that take place at the same time, one featuring Lochley and the other, Sheridan! Both are enjoyable, but the President Sheridan story was better! The extras were excellent! The interviews were fabulous and the memorials to late B5 actors, Andreas Katsulas and Richard Biggs were touching! Overall, this was a good view if you are a fan and it completed my B5 collection!

Not quite what was expected... But Nostalgic. Posted by: from: Sunny South Florida :D on I thought this movie might be a little more exciting or at least engrossing... It's more like 2 episodes combined into 1 movie. On the "Plus" side - The best thing about the story line is it's told on a much more personal scale. The cast is pretty small so the B5 Station seems pretty empty. The visual/special effects are very cool. A couple of the Special features were kind of cool too. There's one with JMS doing a Sock Puppet version of a couple characters that's silly but, Funny. If you're a big fan of the series, then I would recommend getting this dvd JUST for the Memorial Tributes to Ambassador G'Kar (Andreas Katsulas) and Dr. Steven Franklin (Richard Biggs) that might even bring a tear to your eye.

It's a good start Posted by: from: on :) From the perspective of a B5 fanboy. For B5 fans, this is a great addition to the B5 universe. As a starting point for getting into B5, you should watch the series or at least the movies first. There isn't a lot of action in this DVD, but the two stories presented are both well done. The best way to describe this DVD is that instead of several intertwined stories that make up a regular episode they are separated and given their own treatment. As a stand alone B5 episodes they fall short, but they set the foundation for future installments. They acknowledge the passing of Andreas Katsulas and Richard Biggs in a classy way without destroying the integrity of the B5 universe.

So-So B5 Movie Posted by: from: Milwaukee, WI on At the time that I bought the movie I really wanted to see the movie and after watching the movie I felt a little dissapointed since I was expected more than what I really got. I was expecting to see one long running movie and in the end I got two episodes that loosely overlapped. I got a possible theology lesson and a morality play which took me a while to appreciate only after being very upset about not seeing the action that was hoping to see. While I know that very committed fans of B5 would love to have this movie as a part of their collections those that aren't very committed to the television series might want to wait to catch this movie on sale.

Good but not great. Posted by: from: on This isn't a terrible movie, unlike some of the previous installments. The special effects look as if they haven't been updated since the show originally premiered. It would've been nice to see the rest of the surviving members of the cast. The stories themselves are entertaining but in all honesty they don't contain any epic revelations or plot points to the overall mythos and continuity of the show. The bonus content is touching and well worth looking at. I would only recommend if you are a die hard Babylon 5 fan.

Extensions to the greatest Sci-Fi epic ever! Posted by: from: NW Indiana on The original series went through a five year run which unlike Next Generation had to be viewed in sequence as it followed a chronological story line. If one stuck through that, any additional viewing would be icing on the cake. These continue story lines in an interesting add-on. Worth watching IF you have seen the original series.

Baby 5 was the best series I've seen. Posted by: from: on It was planned from the beginning to be a 5 year series which made the series cohesive. It also made for some great plots that were well thought out and executed as they were all brought together in the final season. Unfortunately, the lost tales are awful. They are basically boring monologues that have no bearing on the actual series.

One for the fans Posted by: from: Princeton NJ on Those of us who watched Babylon 5 back in the 90's would welcome this return to catch up what's happening to the main protagonists from the 'Shadow War'. I watched it by myself, one rainy afternoon and enjoyed it but probably one just for the real fans.
