    From Leregard@VERT/TINFOILH to All on Thu Jul 13 16:51:49 2017
    This isn't a reply to anything in particular... but on the subject of SciFi, I realized about a year ago that I had *completely* missed Babylon 5 when it was on tv the first time. I knew it was there, I knew what it was, I just never saw even one single episode. And it wasn't on Netflix, so... years went by, decades actually, and I forgot all about it.

    I don't remember why exactly, but last year I started watching it on and off... and it's really good.

    I never watched it either.. When it was on the air, I just caught a few minutes of it here & there, then changed to something else. I like sci-fi, but back then I was more into other sci-fi shows. I've heard Babylon 5 is good though.

    That's one I've never gotten around to watching but hear good things about
    it. Also, I was way late to the game for Farscape, and finally started watching that, and for some reason lost interest at Season 2....maybe it's because Stargate SG-1 kinda became Farscape :D

    Hopefully one day I'll watch/finish them both!

    Loved Farscape. One of my all-time favorites. I was very disappointed when it went off the air so early.

    Excellent show. The did wrap it up pretty well with "The Peacekeeper Wars" (movie) though.

    It was a great show. So unique yet such great stories through out the series. The last few episodes that they aired a bit after the show ended wrapped up as a special called, "The Peacekeeper Wars" I believe, was good in terms of a ending.

    Browder has a minor part in the newest Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

    They did a pretty good job wrapping the story with it.

    Yes, the Peacekeeper Wars wraps up th show pretty well. If you've seen the rest of Farscape, it's a must watch.

    It's pretty decent. We had a down day a few weeks ago when I was on vacation
    so the wife and I, and our youngest, went to see it. Didn't even realize it
    was Browder until I read that online recently.
