Quotes

[first lines]
Michael Garibaldi: [voiceover] The Interstellar Alliance, based on the Homeworld of the Minbari Federation, was founded in the Earth year 2261 shortly after the end of the Shadow War, 20 years ago. Twenty years of history. Those of us who survived have seen it all and those of us who understand have been waiting and dreading the arrival of this day.

Something truly wonderful has happened
19 July 2009 | by (England) – See all my reviews

After five years of blood, sweat, tears and laughter, we get to the bittersweet moment of knowing that this is it. The final episode. The swansong of a science-fiction show that really looked to tell a story over time, rather than a collection of shorter stories designed for individual consumption.

Not only does it tell a wonderful story, it does so with a beautiful sense of understatement.

The music, which as been stunning all the way through the series is perfectly balanced for the mood, especially 'Sleeping in Light', which plays when we see Sheridan's final scene.

And then top top it all off, we have JMS himself flicking the switch to turn off the lights, setting the final sequence in motion.

If TV was poetry, then this was pure Shakespeare.
