Not sure how I can help... But I can offer encouragement...

Rewatched this episode with my girlfriend (who is watching the series for the first time) and was reminded just how good it is. Really powerful episode, great symmetry throughout. Probably the strongest non-metaplot episode in the series.


My wife and I have started re-watching the series from Season 1. Knowing what Michael O'Hare was going through all that time you can see it in his performances. In some episodes he is wonderful to watch - passionate, emotive, energetic while in others he comes across as so stiff and wooden you wonder if his evil twin Skippy has taken his place or something.

That said I am liking the season 1 stuff much better this time around - I had forgotten things like one of the First Ones showing up at Sigma 957 - I always thought they only appeared in the later seasons. I do wish I could go in and digitally edit Jerry Doyle's hair so he is clean shaven (or at least close cropped) - that poofy, whipped look is sooooo 1980s!


Never watch "Sleeping in Light" then play Mass Effect 3 when you cure the Genophage.

Agreed! Great episode. Moral questions. A little thriller-esque. Makes ya think.

Brad Dourif is SUCH an underrated actor (at least since the early 1980s, once his career somehow didn't explode after his amazing work in "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest").

I think I need to rewatch the show again, I think it's been five years since the last time...

And then again in a few years when it's in HD, if that ever happens.

Don't hold your breath. JMS has said that the CGI was not rendered in HD, so that would ALL need to be redone. And the chances that WB would sink that kinda money into just to get it out on Bluray is pretty slim...

Yeah I know it's mostly wishful thinking. But as far as I know, they are at least looking into it after the success of the TNG reissue. Werthead just mentioned that in a blog entry about X-Files in HD.

This post is pretty interesting because the author even states that Warner Bros. is looking at doing the same for Babylon 5. Sure, it's not an absolute, but it is a beginning.


Well that is good news. Certainly more than I expected.

Yeah, the head of WB's home video/DVD/Blu-Ray division have said they are costing itp.

It's going to be MONUMENTALLY expensive if they do it, and I think it's probably unlikely to happen, but at least they're looking into it.
