This little thing called “Life” reared it’s ugly head and as a result we are slightly late with this episode. I think the wait is worth it, however.
In And the Sky Full of Stars we finally get an important hole filled. More accurately, Commander Sinclair gets a hole filled. The one we hear about in The Gathering. Filling that hole has its price, though. In this case that price is not only being kidnapped and tortured, but also raising some very important questions about who he can trust and what is that person’s motivation.
We also have some questions of our own. The plot against Sinclair is well thought out and executed. So who would have the ability to make something like this happen? So perhaps we do get a little booming today. But don’t worry, there’s still plenty of boom left for tomorrow!
My, oh, my. This episode of The Babylon Project has it all. Banter. Standard fan-show fare. Plot analysis. Soul searching. Deep philosophy. Current events. Even a dramatic reading by our ISN Inf0-Babe Anthea (She’s my wife, so she’ll always be a babe to me!!!).
This is the deepest episode discussion we’ve had so far, though Believers, coming down the pipe, will probably top it. But to date, this really is it. In a demonstration of just how relevant Babylon 5 remains to society today, The Mind War takes bigotry and hatred squarely by the horns. In spite of that, it has some incredibly light moments. It also has one of the longest conversations with Kosh that we’ll see in the show. So take a deep breath for a very thoughtful and deep episode.
