Due to actor Michael O'Hare struggling with an increasingly debilitating case of schizophrenia as Season 1 progressed. At first JMS told O'Hare he would hold production of the show but O'Hare didn't want the rest of the cast and crew to be left without work so he and JMS mutually agreed to have him leave at the first season's conclusion, with JMS utilizing a "trap door" storyline to explain the departure of Sinclair at the beginning of the second season. Straczynski also honored O'Hare's request to keep the real reason for the departure a secret until after O'Hare's passing in October 2012. See more »

I just finished watched the 1st year on DVD. What a treat to see this series again, in a version mastered properly for the widescreen with surround sound to boot. I remember enough from the series to know that the 1st season was both unique and uneven in more ways than the other 4 years, and yet it lets out all the plot threads that play out over the ensuing years. I, for one, liked M. O'hare and it was too bad he couldn't have had a recurring role in subsequent seasons. Even so, this is a great series, possibly the best ever Sci Fi TV series that I've ever seen. Great CGI work that was employed for the 1st time ever, multiple engaging plots, good acting, writing, etc... it goes on and on. My only regret is that no one's figured out a good way to resurrect the B5 fictional world. I'd love to see another good series like this. If you haven't seen it lately, watch it again to remember how good it was. If you've never seen it then you don't know what you're missing.
