Bruce Boxleitner! He was so much better than Michael O'hare as the Commander of the station starting in Season 2. It often felt like Michael couldn't say a line without smiling. I thought they should have rename him Commander Jeffrey St. Smiley instead of Sinclair. :D

Michael Garibaldi (Jerry Doyle) always reminded me a bit of Bruce Willis (a good thing I think). Lando and G'Kar sparring was fun to watch (Note: Both Lando's Peter Jurasik and Bruce Boxleitner were both in the original TRON movie)

My only real complaint about the show (other than Season 5, which I think was worse overall than even Season 1 mostly because all the good plots were fleshed out in Season 4 because they thought it was going to be forced to end early) was that 5'10" tall Claudia Christian was such a hot babe (I liked her ever since seeing her in Hexed in 1993 in a pretty hot roll) and they managed to somehow hide that nearly the entire series in a uniform (yeah I know she had a serious role; does that mean she couldn't have a life outside the bridge? She was actually supposed to get it on in a big way with Andrea Thompson's Talia Winters, but Andrea was eager to leave the show for something better so it never fully developed). Claudia's character rarely had her hair down and rarely dressed casual, let alone in a hot outfit. One episode of Starhyke (2011) made her look hotter than the entire B5 series. Starhyke also had Suanne Braun (The gorgeous goddess Hathor in Stargate SG-1 who is also 5'10" tall) on it. Too bad it wasn't better handled as humor plus starships plus hot babes sounded like a good idea to me. ;)

So I didn't watch this show when it originally aired. But I decided to give it a shot since I have HBOmax.

I've been pleasantly surprised. I'm half way into the first season and very much enjoying the show.

Wish it was in 16:9 and remastered...
Remastering seems like it might be technologically possible, even without proper masters with no CG elements comped in. I just watched a video on YouTube yesterday that demonstrated a program that uses an AI to help do rotoscoping. If somebody were willing to invest the money, I think that within a few years it would be possible to remaster B5 to include updated CG using this new AI rotoscoping technology because it would, theoretically, cut down the time needed to rotoscope out the live action to comp in new CG by a significant amount and as most of us are aware, time is money in film and TV (post) production.
