Could have been better
17 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Here, the conflict with the elder races--the Shadows and the Vorlons-- reaches its climax. This is an interesting sci-fi story line stretching back many episodes. The problem is that the writers spent so much time on subplots in those previous episodes that this climax comes off rather weakly.

It could have been better, and it would have been better if subplots were relegated to a few five minute segments scattered throughout. Subplots with absolutely no bearing on the overarching plot of a multi- episode arc don't need to do much to tell their story. In this arc's case, the fabric of the main plot is weakened by the producers, writers and directors spending too much time on sideline characters and their plot lines.

One of the things I do like about this arc is that it has something of a J.R.R. Tolkien feel to it. The elder races seem to know that the age of the younger races is at hand. Only with B5, the elder races seem unwilling to let go. Lorien as a Gandalf seems to fit here.

It's an enjoyable climax to the arc, but again it could have been even better.
