Did You Know?


Babylon 5 (1994) Executive Producer J. Michael Straczynski had been musing on story ideas when he pondered what Adolf Hitler (if he were still alive) could possibly offer to stave off prosecution for mass murder. The only thing that seemed plausible was an immortality serum. This idea was transformed into the story, Deathwalker. See more »

Interesting Episode
28 December 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The episode has best of both worlds, humour regarding Tira winters tagging with the cryptic speaking kosh and drama regarding the arrival of the infamous 'Deathwalker' Sarah Douglas plays the character 'Deathwalker' very well, the character is arrogant, clever and very evil. I feel it was a wasted idea that rather then have the doomed spin off series 'crusade' they should had made a prequel series about the Dilgar war. In terms of background history regarding earth, the dilgar is essential and this episode helps give you the info in the form of the tyrant 'Deathwalker' The moral arguments is an interesting one but furthermore, the reasons why this woman chooses shelter with the humans (the race that defeated the dilgar) was perfect and cruel in irony and of her twisted humour.

I feel it was a shame that a attempt in creating a prequel regarding the Dilgar was never made as 'Death walker' has all the traits for a classic scfi villain.

Good episode.
