Well, I've done it. I've seen all there is to see of the Babylon 5 universe. And now, I am suffering from let-down.

Not because of the quality of the shows... no. As many rumors as I read concerning the lack of quality for Crusade or even season five of B5, I gotta say... I was hooked all the way through.

The writing, visuals, acting... was all very top notch. I wanna write stuff this engrossing when I grow up.

No, my let-down is based entirely in the fact that it's over. There's nothing more.

Reading the published books (unless we're talking about JMS' script books) seems somehow... compromising. This universe was developped as a visual medium, with the idea of creating a novel for television... and it works so well that way, that I'm not sure that it would play out as well in a paper and ink book.

In any event, I do not regret immersing myself in this world. I've learned a great deal just by watching and listening to JMS tell his story.

I can only hope that he'll get the chance to do it again... I'd love to see another B5 series... The story's never completely over :)
