Just finished watching Season 1 of B5 on DVD tonight.  Chrysalis (the final episode of S1) is fantastic.  If you have the opportunity to watch the DVD set, take it!

One of the most interesting things about the series is that it coincided with the birth of the web.  The Lurker’s Guide to Babylon 5 was probably one of the first pages I hit on the web.  Strangely enough, the site is pretty much the same as it was a decade ago- save for some recent updates of course.

On the other hand, feel free to skip the episode “Grail” in season 1.  It’s absolutely terrible: probably made the cut originally because of the CGI alien bit they talk about in the guide.  The rest of the episodes range in quality from good to excellent.
