    Superb Epic Sci-Fi!


    This set starts an incredible ride that spans 5 seasons. Babylon 5 tells the story of the crew and denizens of the last Babylon station and how they all become embroiled in an epic struggle for the fate of the universe. In-depth writing, excellent character development and conflicts both personal and galactic in nature drive this show from beginning to end. Season 1 sets up the remaining 4 seasons. Characters are introduced and thrown into situations that test their mettle leaving some permanently changed. If you like either Sci-Fi or great writing you owe it to yourself to buy this set. Once you finish season 1 you wont be able to wait for season 2.

    This series was well thought out and a pioneer in special effects for this type of show which many thought could not be done in a one hour time slot. Not only did it but it paved the way for other shows like Stargate SG1. The fact that it was designed for a five year run and is so well connected form season 1 to season 5 with many of characters. I have the complete series and all the extra movies as well as the one spin off. I would recommend watching it.

    Having watched the first 3 seasons as they aired on TV I couldn't wait to see them again on DVD. I bought this first season set so I could re-enjoy them. They did not dissappoint. Excellent quality on these, nice animated menu system and good quality packaging made this a worthwhile investment. There could have been more to the bonus footage, it was really lame in all honesty, had the bonus stuff been better I would have given it a 5 star + rating.

    And so it begins


    This is first season of one of the best shows on TV. If you haven't already seen the show, I advice you to buy it right now. It will seem slow and the beginning and you'll wonder why I recommended it. The first season is marred by some bad acting (by one actor in particular) but for most of the people it just took them some time to understand their character's. And the plot will carry you through the overly hammy scenes.

    I was a little worried about starting a show that aired 20 years ago. I was blown away by all of it. I'm a Trekkie and rate this even with TOS and TNG. I would reccommend this to anyone who likes sci fi. It will grip you from episode 1 until the end of the series.

    Very good series gets off to slow start


    Very good series, but I felt that it gets off to a slow start. Some of the first few episodes are pretty rough. It starts to pick up steam in the 2nd half of the season, though. Recommended because watching the first season is essential to enjoying the next 4 excellent seasons.

    Finest SciFi series ever!


    Babylon 5 is the finest Space arc ever! From the beginning to a phenomenal end this is one incredible story. Season one can be watched without the rest, but season 2 to 4 are the core of the series. The Babylon 5 series is everything that the Star Wars epic wishes it was.

    Babylon 5 is one of all time favorite SCI FI TV shows. Great characters and great story telling. It just gets better after the first season.
