Babylon 5: Sleeping in Light (1998)
Dignified and incredibly moving
The last episode of Babylon 5 and in my opinion the very best of a series that still sets the bar for writing, characterisation and quality Science Fiction.
Some reviewers have called this episode 'dull' and, indeed, if you are looking for 'Bangs and Blood' then this will probably be true for you. If, however, you are looking for a supremely well acted conclusion to one of the greatest love stories of the genre look no further. The Sheridan/Delenn scenes are absolutely, heartbreakingly, emotional without ever being tacky or overly saccharine (a common fault to many American shows). It is one of the few things that makes even a emotionally repressed Englishman like myself shed a tear! This episode is the culmination of a sweeping story arc so if you haven't seen the previous seasons so much of the nuance will be lost on you. It is a mark of the talent and vision of JMS in his Sci-Fi writing that he would deliberately choose this cerebral ending over the flashy mindless option.
Cringingly bad TV
This truly has to be one of the worst programs I have ever watched.
So superficial, inaccurate and just wrong - Tolkien must be spinning in his grave still.
For example: The whole section where they link Gandalf to Christ because he comes back from the dead... The resurrected God is a common element from many mythologies not just the Christian one. In fact a closer parallel would be Odin's sacrifice for wisdom.
The so-called 'experts' used on this tragic episode should be ashamed of themselves for whoring out their credentials in such a shameless manner...
Cable Trash TV unworthy of airtime...
