I alternatively think this show is the greatest thing ever and also the clunkiest series ever written. The 'alcholicism is bad, you know, don't be drinking that stuff!' crap I could do without but the slow slide towards hell and former allies ripping each other apart is excellent. And really, really depressing.

And here be my pretentious comparison: I like the way this is like Lord of the Rings (and a lot of post WWI and WWII fiction): there is no victory without huge loss. Every single good thing must be paid for and there is always a price. I rather like the idea of seaons 5, which is that victory is messy and almost more painful than the war which precedes it, but the execution is sometimes sadly lacking. But Londo and G'kar are always wonderful. As are Sheridan and Delenn.

I just wish that there was a somewhat lighter hand with the writing. But there has been no Lochley for several episodes! Yay!
