I'm down with that man; Joss Whedon is MY Master as well.

If you are tired of "bad" science fiction on the screen, you might try getting a copy of the Babylon 5 series. Keeping in mind that it was done in 1991-95 and that noise in space was still ok back then, it is a very well done series. The first year takes time to get through as all the characters have to be introduced and developed, but after that it begins to take off inany different directions. Additionally there were five movies made, one between each season that can be viewed separately. What makes the whole series work so well is that the guy who did it wrote the whole thing first and then sold it with himself as the producer.

I agree with you about Babylon 5. Unfortunately, the last season was far weaker than the previous 4 because the network executives (those clowns again!) didn't clear season 5 until the end of season 4 was already "in the can". As a result, JMS was forced to finish off the major story arc by the end of season 4, and it's loss is definitely felt in season 5.

On the other hand, season 5 contains my favorite episode of the entire series: "The Very Long Night of Londo Mollari"

I've watched the entire Babylon 5 series and enjoyed it very much. And Ed, you're right on the money. Londo got what he wanted, just like in every parable of dealing with the devil.
