Apparently the episode of Babylon 5 that I watched first was a movie thing made between seasons 3 and 4 and not the real first episode. No wonder I have so many questions!
Tying not to read to much because I don’t want spoilers, and reading people’s comments about the show make me sad. Apparently everyone hates the first season a lot and recommends skipping episodes if you want to actually like the show? But I watched 10 episodes, including the ones I was supposed to skip, and I like the show a lot so far. I guess I’m doing it wrong. ???
