Dodger tells Garibaldi that any Emily Dickinson poem can be sung to the tune of "The Yellow Rose of Texas." While this is true of most (though not all) Dickinson poems, the one which Dodger sings as an example is actually a poem by Edna St. Vincent Millay. See more »

Interesting Premise
25 January 2012 | by XweAponXSee all my reviews

The Brakari "rent" a section of Babylon 5 - Which "becomes" part of the Brakari Homeworld for all intents and purposes. Literally AND Figuratively - Much to the chagrin of Garibaldi and Lockley, who just could NOT kick back and enjoy it! All I know, is if I were there, I'd be happy to talk to whoever is brought back - And I would not waste as much time as Garibaldi wasted - Especially with that woman, who he did not get to Boff before she was killed in action.

Even Poor Lennier, had an opportunity to pick the mind of Mr. Morden - But in some ways, Lennier was a SNOB, and was a victim of his own Minbari Religion. Kind of like, a bunch of my Friends who are the same way - Too religious to really take advantage of anything.

I like the premise, and the way the ep unfolds. Very good writing, very JMS - Even though it was written by Comic Book veteran Neil Gaiman. One of the best Season 5 B5 Eps.
