If you want to add an entry, mail it to my address
This is the the original post in
rec.arts.sf.tv.babylon5. You may also
it at Google Groups.
If you have a slow connection, and getting this list takes forever, then I
suggest you download the ykybwbtmw.zip instead:
it contains this HTML file and will take about a third of the time.
As of 1996/jun/02, this list has become more than 10 times larger than the
original one (350+ entries against only 35 in the original post in
1995/mar/10). I'd like to thank all of the contributors, for having the will
of sending me their ideas (and also thanks to all of you who have had your
entries rejected - keep trying).
THIS IS GREAT! As of 1997/feb/02, the list has become
more than 20 times larger! There are now 700+ entries. This sure means
Babylon 5 is becoming a classic.
BIG CONGRATULATIONS go to Joanne Allan, who made the
1000th entry on 1997/aug/21!
BIGGER CONGRATULATIONS go to Christopher McColm, who made
the 1400th entry on 1999/apr/13! This list has become FORTY times larger than
its original incarnation... impressive, isn't it?
A big THANK YOU goes
to James Wolf, who was kind enough to send me a videotape with the S4 final 4
episodes, when I needed it most.
Another THANK YOU
for James, who sent me a second tape with In The Beginning.
An even greater THANK
YOU goes to Rain Lynham, who taped and sent me all of season
Note: I get this asked a lot, so I've decided to put the answer here: the
entry submitted by JMS was the one about "Morden Utilities for people" (but,
to be honest, he didn't send it to me - he posted it in rastb5, then I asked
him permission to include it here, and he granted it).
This page was awarded as
Best of Babylonia in 1997/jan/5 (too bad that WWW site
If you can't get enough of this, look also at the
You Know You've Been Watching Crusade Too Much
And be sure to read The Babylon 5 Bogus Episode
List that I also keep.
