    Glad to see my Godzillian Atomic Breath didn't burn your toast, too, Uberfuhrer. I'd hate to ruin everybody's breakfast.

    I didn't say that I didn't say it. I said that I didn't say that I said it. I want to make that very clear.

    Babylon 5 had its moments. If you could grit your teeth through the first season, it started to get good. The character development of G'Kar and Londo Mollari (during which they transition from bitter enemies to friends) is good, good TV.

    And I never thought I'd use that phrase.

    What about Farscape? Or as I call it, The Muppet Show in space!

    "Farscape" was one of my favorites: sexy and quirky--a killer combination. Too bad they had to rush through the ending storyline, but I felt that the ending of "Babylon 5" was wrapped up a bit hastily, too.

    "Babylon 5 you are an interesting TV show with a lot of wonderful qualities, but I am just not looking for that kind of commitment in a TV show at this point in my life. It's not you. It's me. I know there are plenty of other people out there that will want to watch you. I know you are a deep TV show and take some time getting accustomed to, but right now I am looking for a TV show that can give me cheep thrills and a lot of laughs without much commitment. Please don't take this as rejection Babylon 5, because you have a whole lot to offer other people."

    Mycroft, if you're still interested in sci-fi book suggestions, you might pick up some William Gibson, Neal Stephenson (especially Snow Crash), some Ursula K. LeGuin, Frank Herbert if you haven't already read him and Harlan Ellison. It may not really fall under the sci-fi category but Neal Gaiman is one of my personal favorites.

    Oh what the hell, everyone else seems to be grave robbing. I guess I'll dig in, too.

    Another good Philip K. Dick story-turned-movie was Next. I enjoyed it quite a bit.
