    So is this indeed going to be a series? It was weak as a standalone movie, and less weak as a pilot. I found little of it compelling in either case, but in the latter I can be hopeful that it is introductory material to something better.

    Regardless, my biggest gripe about Babylon 5 has always been the lack of good dialogue (well, perhaps it is the excess of weak dialogue), and this latest entry has more of that than I've seen in awhile. Like toward the beginning with the gun chick says "A wise man once said, 'We live for the one, we die for the one.' Another wise man once said, 'It ain't over 'til it's over.'" Yeah, that's the ticket. /me rolls his eyes. They should take some lessons from Aaron Sorkin [imdb.com] or something.
    • Point taken. For me, the hokeyness of the dialog doesn't get in the way too much. JMS is a great storyteller.

      Farscape's dialog is frequently more entertaining and better thoughtout.

      Star Trek:* had neither great plots nor good dialog.

      Picard: Make it so.

      Kirk: KAAAAAAAAAAHNN!
