Nice episode! Unlike any before
18 December 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I am writing this as the person who is commenting on most B5 episodes wrote a unfair review on this one (Most of his/her reviews are good).

I just thought I would say that this episode was very good and even though maybe a filler did give some new things to the story and I do think is a must watch episode.

I agree it could have been better and maybe was sort of "easy" for the crew to get rid off... But was very nice and creepy unlike the rest of the season I have watched so far.

I think this episode is important (Not finished B5 yet though) as it shows that there is a army gathering that was once dead and in waiting.... It also shows that these evil things are not seen and have been in contact with people from earth before. I think it also shows that there are many forms of this dark side and that some of the aliens know more then they are letting on about them.

I liked the sort of "horror" episode. Hope we get more like this.
