    Best series ever. Worst dvd transfers

    Posted
    Suicyco

    If you haven't seen the series, but like sci-fi even marginally, these are a must-have. I bought seasons 1-4 from Best Buy/.com the first time they went on sale for $20 each. I already had the entire series on VHS, recorded from the original airings... If you can get them on a really good sale, like I did, they are certainly worth owning. Or, if you are watching on a small screen then they are probably worth the price as well. However, on my 109" screen, where most DVDs still look near-HD through my PS3, these seem to be only marginally better than my OLD VHS tapes. Thse are are 5-channel surround, but the rear speakers are way under-utilized. I'm going to have to set up my system special before I finish watching the rest of the series. Otherwise its practially stereo. I did check all first 4 seasons. All have the same terrible transfer quality. I look forward to a Blu-ray release. Most incredible to me is that nobody else online seems to be complaining. Rent one and see for yourself before you drop big money on them.... All that said, I am happy to own them on DVD. A friend can borrow from me, because I can't recommend paying full price.

    Excellent TV Series for Sci-Fi fans.

    This is a great series for Sci-Fi fans who want a good quality story. I'm glad that J. Michael Strazynski maintained control of the series, so few writers/creators are able retain control over their stories. Most companies prefer to takeover a story to try to change it and wind up screwing it up. The characters grow and change throughout the series. There are great plots and sub-plots in the series. It's not all dark like most tv Sci-Fi series turn into on television nowadays. It has age-old lessons for people retold in a futuristic setting. The dvd quality isn't the greatest, but I'm hoping they'll offer the blue-ray version of it for sale to everyone. I was told that Bruce Boxleitner used to go out in public in his B-5 costume when he first joined the series because he enjoyed the show so much.

    Season 2

    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.

    Really Takes Off

    The Second season of Babylon 5 is where things really take off for the series. They brought in Bruce Boxleitner to replace the other commander (who always kinda sounded like a 70s lounge singer). It's an excellent series and I highly recommend it to everyone.

    Great sci-fi series

    A must own for sci-fi fans. This is a terrific series that many people probably missed when it aired on TV. The world of Babylon 5 is gritty and dark and very familiar.
