Not great but a major improvement over the last couple episodes
8 June 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Season five for Babylon 5 was, generally speaking, a disappointment. As the Shadows AND the Earth had been defeated, there were no enemies when the season began and the episodes just seemed to be in limbo--probably because originally there wasn't even supposed to be a fifth season.

This episode had nothing to do with the future direction of the show AND it featured a very annoying and unfunny role for the comedy team of Penn & Teller. I am really surprised, as they usually are a rather edgy team. Here, they just seem....stupid. Despite all this, it was still a major improvement in the show over the last couple episodes.

The main focus of the show is an alien form of Day of the Dead, but instead of it being like the Mexican version (which is a day of remembrance), something WEIRD happens on the ship and magical apparitions occur involving the departed. Pretty odd but also interesting and at least it doesn't involve the dull and hippie-like telepaths from episodes 6 and 7!
