Quotes

[first lines]
G'Kar: [voiceover] I believe that when we leave a place, part of it goes with us, and part of us remains. Go anywhere in the station when it is quiet and just listen. After a while, you will hear the echoes of all our conversations, every thought and word we've exchanged. Long after we have gone, our voices will linger in these walls.
Simon Burke: Get out of my head. No!

Half Brilliant
19 August 2007 | by See all my reviews

Babylon 5 is sorely missed, and this chance to walk the halls of Brown sector again is greatly appreciated. However, Brown sector is known for its foul odor. Babyon 5 Voices in the Dark suffers from both the best and worst of the epochal television series that predated it. Moments of brilliance are interwoven with corny, pedantic dialogue that almost leaves one with a foul aftertaste. However, in pure Babylon 5 tradition, there is enough brilliance to override the bad, leaving Voices in the Dark as a worthy addition to any B5 fan's DVD library. The first story, involving a bizarre decision to employ the services of a Priest for an exorcism, fails to make the grade as a good B5 story. It's JMS at his worst, which is odd. He's usually very good at making stories work logically, yet, there is no reason for Lochley to jump to the conclusion of an exorcism. In a universe that has seen the likes of the Shadows and Vorlons, many deep space creatures have been encountered that employ similar abilities as "the prisoner". The priest, brilliantly acted by lan Scarfe, delivers the most rational, and well written dialogue in the first half, making Lochley look a little off her rocker. Moreover, why does JMS always rush to the Christian Bible when dealing with Spirituality? There are a myriad of faiths on Earth that have terrifying demonic spirits in them, and to be honest, the whole "Omen" thing has been done to death. It smacks of writing in a closet. Finally, I would have wished the Priest would have interrupted Lochley's boring soliloquy near the end with "Okay. We get the idea." Talk about hammering a point to death. Fortunately, Tracy Scoggins handles the plodding dialogue expertly, and it is wonderful to see the character back in action, despite Lochley's religious irrationality. Fortunately, the second story, involving Sheridan's run in with Galen the Technomage is much more up to the quality of JMS at his best. We have a very tough moral decision forced upon President Sheridan, and he handles it in true Straczinsky fashion: If someone gives you two options, both of which you hate, do your damndest to find a third. And he does in a way that justifies both Galen's dark demeanor and Sheridan's brief but frightening detour from the moral high ground. Bruce Boxlietner is a delight as Sheridan, and he breathes life into a role that is dearly missed. Peter Woodward Shines as Galen, perhaps one of Straczynski's best and most complicated characters to emerge from the B5 universe. I was so relieved when the second story played itself out. It was emotionally satisfying in all the right places, and balanced out the weaker first half. The special effects are great, save for an obvious, painfully long CGI shot in the hang bay when Father Cassidy disembarks. Having a fixed perspective shot, to incorporate live action elements without moving the camera, is an old trick held over from the Matte Painting days. This ranks as one of the worst because the background is too detailed. Less is more (see the final shot of Raiders of the Lost Ark). Here, they tried to get as much movement in the shot as possible, without moving the camera (which would have required expensive motion control cameras on the green screen set). The result is a visual noise that distracts the viewer from the centre of action. At the end of the day what we have here is a great addition the B5 library, despite its obvious faults. The fans want more B5 and they will get it here. The casual viewer will have some work to do, however. Just as watchers of the original series had to endure the first season's horrible acting, so to will the casual viewer be required to do with the first half of this DVD. I am hoping for more stories from the B5 universe because there are many left to tell.
