Overview: Babylon 5 is a five-mile long space station located in neutral space. Built by the Earth Alliance in the 2250s, it's goal is to maintain peace among the various alien races by providing a sanctuary where grievances and negotiations can be worked out among duly appointed ambassadors. A council made up of representatives from the five major space-faring civilizations - the Earth Alliance, Minbari Federation, Centauri Republic, Narn Regime, and Vorlon Empire - work with the League of Non-Aligned Worlds to keep interstellar relations under control. Aside from its diplomatic function, Babylon 5 also serves as a military post for Earth and a port of call for travelers, traders, businessmen, criminals, and Rangers.

Babylon 5 is right up there with the best; I loved this series and still do. I can easily watch it from the beginning to the end and then start all over again and never tire of it. J. Michael Straczynski struck the right balance between a truly inspired and interesting story with decent CGI (for the time). Every character is instantly charismatic and engaging and as the series progresses their interaction makes them indispensable to the story.

Even then follow us features were a good watch and adding some interesting and filling parts that expanded on some of the episodes in the series. Well worth watching.
