Goofs

When Cmdr. Sinclair and Londo Molari are talking in Londo's quarters, there are golden busts in the background similar to early Earth fertility goddess statues. Only these busts depict the Centauri peacock hair style and have breasts. But later in the series its established that the hair style is a male status symbol and Centauri women shave their heads bald. So the busts don't fit. See more »

Good first episode and showcase for the 2 best actors in the series
20 September 2011 | by (White Plains, NY) – See all my reviews

Peter Jurasik and Andreas Katsulas are the 2 actors that made this series for me. Without them, and Mira Furlan as well, the plot would still have been amazing, but some of the bite would not be there.

The endless diplomatic dueling between Mollari and G'Kar is always a sight to behold, and the emotional power of theirs and Delenn's speeches draws you deeply into the story. They're just getting started here, but it is a sign of great things to come.

The plot to this episode is a good setup to the long conflict between the Centauri and Narn. Enjoy the fireworks, and don't miss a moment of the two ambassador's dialogue.
