I agree, it seems to be getting better. I have enjoyed the last couple episodes more than any of the others.
I also agree that Bab5 is a must see. And since it is on Hulu (at least the first two seasons, currently) there is really no excuse for pleading ignorance.
And /SlashControl has all 5 seasons up and running. http://www.slashcontrol.com/free-tv-shows/babylon-5
My 13 year old daughter really likes Bab5. We spent a couple months watching Bab5 with dinner. She was hooked after the first episode, and wanted to watch nothing else until the very end of season 5.
Blade Runner is also a must see. The original cut is best, but the hardest to come by these days. This was also the SciFi state-of-the-art in it's day (done with Lightwave 3D and the Amiga Video Toaster, as was Bab5, by the way), and no newer techs could make it any better. Some things are just classic, and are never meant to be redone. Both Bab5 and Blade Runner fall into this category.
