My B5 DVD's are making the rounds with my co-workers. I have hooked 4 different people already. (evil grin)

BMat, Sindutar is right, Netflix has all five season and is pretty cheap. You could probably watch all of them in a month or two and it would cost you about $30.

I refuse to buy the Star Trek DVD's until they drop the price. X-Files and Farscape finally dropped to a reasonable price range. I am picking up Farscape as they come out. I'll be waiting on X-Files until I have paid off my credit card debt. For the Farscape fans, look for the Starburst editions. They put 7-8 episodes on two DVD's and cost about $18. There are three sets for each season. Unfortunately, they are not putting them out as a whole season but releasing 1/3 of a season every 6 months. Season 1 is complete. Season 2's second set comes out in August.

Of course, at $18 a piece for a third of the episodes, that's $54 a season... and as soon as my new cc arrives, even though I already'd bought the season 2 for bab5 on sale, it's still a great price on NetFlix, so I will most likely get that set...

Aldan, the $18.00 a set is for 1/3 a season for Farscape Starburst Editions for Purchase.

Netflix, is a rental by mail, not a purchase. PC was suggesting to Bmat, that if she only wants to view B5 again, and not invest in Purchasing them, to rent them through Netflix.

That's two completely seperate things.

Thanks. I think I realized it after typing all that, but didn't bother trying to edit it to correct the mistake. Of course, I could have just been on something, too...

The "Oh, that's what that meant" type thing throughout the series.

In fact, B5 was one of the biggest Forum Topics we had on the old sites.


At least for me, it was the Pathfinder B5 BBS, and you linked to it directly from the Babylon 5 official website. Later, at SciFiSites, we had a wider array of discussions, but Pathfinder was in its genesis the Official B5 board. Of course, there was a second wave of B5 posters coming to SciFiSites when Pathfinder finally shut down (to much rejoicing!) that included Bmat, Tandara, Beebunch, Fanuilh. Can't think of any more names from back then. It's the Stoli.


... dude! Hi, I'm new, but I have registered especially to say that I have been wondering what on earth happened to all the guys I used to know over at the pathfinder BBS and then at SciFiSites. I'm actually a little giddy at the thought of people who actually remember that they existed - no one I ever talk to seems to remember them! Erm, anyway, hi there, hello. I don't imagine anyone remembers me, but it's all very exciting. (That could just be the lack of sleep!)

On topic (ish) I'm currently watching B5 with two people who haven't seen it before. It is both strange and wonderful. I'm really enjoying watching the episodes in order, as it's been a long time since I've done that.

Hi Psicop! Thought your nick looked familiar. Where've you been keeping yourself? It seems after SciFiSites went down, everyone scattered to the four corners of the universe.

Heya Sindatur, Merle!

Mostly I have been over at livejournal as alicamel. Wondering in and out of non-B5 fandoms for a few years, but been trying to figure out if there is a B5 fandom left!

What year did SciFiSites go down? I think I may have jumped ship before it did, but it's all a bit hazy in my mind. (For that matter, when did Pathfinder go down? In my head it's about 96/7, but that seems to long ago to be true!)

The "first wave" of posters left Pathfinder for SciFiSites in Oct. of 97. Pathfinder shut down in '98 for good. Looking at my registration at Hostboard, I'd say probably SciFiSites/SciFiVine went down in 2000.

Hi, PsiCop! Welcome to SV!

Your name sounds familiar, but I don't think we ever spoke. I was in the second wave of Pathfinder(spit) and stayed with Vines until they closed down.

Hey, Q, doing very well thanks.

Hey SciFi Sites/Vines went bad on us too, shouldn't we put in the obligatory [spit] for them too? Or are we just grateful for the good times and forget about the Vines part of SciFi sites?
