Product Description

Amazon.ca

Season 4 began on a high point with the Centauri Prime in the grip of the insane Emperor Cartagia (Wortham Krimmer) and a run of six shows leading to the climax of the war against the Shadows in "Into the Fire." If this colossal narrative was resolved a little too easily and the ultimate aim of the Shadows turned out to be a tad disappointing, it still proved to be the most powerful slice of space opera to ever grace the small screen. In the aftermath the sheer scale dropped back a little but the pace never slowed as the rest of the season played out in one relentless cycle of conspiracy, betrayal and conflict, Babylon 5 siding with the rebel Mars colony against the totalitarian Earth.

Meanwhile Delenn came increasingly into conflict with her own people and, paralleling her relationship with Sheridan, Garibaldi became involved with his ex-fiancée Lise Hampton (Denise Gentile), while an intense platonic love grew between Ivanova and Marcus Cole. On an unstoppable wave fuelled by roller-coaster plot twists and spectacular action shows from "No Surrender, No Retreat"--when Sheridan avows to overthrow EarthGov--to "Rising Star"--when the aim is realized--Babylon 5 achieved a consistent excellence rare in television. Yet within that run "Intersections in Real Time" stood out as a bold experiment; essentially a two-hand drama taking place entirely within one dimly lit room. Beyond this a major character died and Sheridan and Delenn married before the season finale again broke with expectation. In "The Deconstruction of Falling Stars," a future descendant of humanity one million years hence reviews excerpts from the history of Babylon 5. In one sequence set in 2762, a Brother is devoted to the preserving of history some time after the "Big Burn". A homage to Walter M Miller's classic A Canticle for Leibowitz, Sheridan and Delenn have themselves become the stuff of legend. --Gary S. Dalkin

Well, it's time for the final showdown between the Vorlons, Shawdows -- and everybody else. When I saw the fourth season on television for the first time, I felt that the story arc regarding the intergalactic armageddon was a bit of a let down. I was expecting the Vorlons and Shadows to go down in a blaze of hatred for each other, that they couldn't get past their mind sets about how the younger races of the galaxy should evolve. In addition, I expected to see that the other races, led by Sheridan and D'Lenn, would come to appreciate that the same thing would happen to them when the Vorlons and Shadows wiped each other out. This would be the basis for their peaceful co-existence, I felt. Finally, while I appreciated the second story arc in which Sheridan brings President Clark down, that story arc also felt anti-climactic -- you knew what was going to happen.
However, my views definitely changed once I saw the context in which JMS was working with for the fourth season. It was definitely wiser to make Sheridan and D'Lenn offer a "crucible" to bring out the truth, that the Vorlons and Shadows wanted the younger races to choose which side was "correct" in its method of "helping" them to evolve. Lorien's role as a father figure also helps to make all the parties realize that war and conflict are in nobody's interest. Seeing him fly off with the Vorlons and Shadows at the end of "Into the Fire" gives this element of the Babylon 5 storyline a proper sense of finality.
It also made sense to have Sheridan's conflict with President Clark end in the way it did. Clark is a tyrant who has to be stopped -- even if that means a civil war. Sheridan is a reluctant hero.

The fourth season of Babylon 5 is titled "No Surrender, No Retreat" and boy o boy does it meet that title head on wear it proudly. Simply put, this fourth chapter in the five chapters (seasons) that ingenious creator J.M. Straczynski wrote entirely on his own is one of the most incredible and entertaining seasons of television ever produced. From the very beginning of the series J.M. Straczynski had been tailoring this extraordinary space "opera" to an ultimate conclusion through a multiple faceted series of plots, sub plots, twists and turns and all of that is paid off in immeasurable quality through this fourth season which is a collection heartrending, enlightening and ultimately supremely satisfying episodes that are, to say the least, unforgettable.
This wide sweeping season imparts a great many details that are incredible in the breadth and scope of the entire series. In past reviews for Babylon 5, I've highlight episodes that stood out among the rest. In the case of this fourth season, I find that to be impossible as every single episode of the season is incredible; so, what follows is a synopsis of the season which I hope gives everyone a good idea of how the season goes without breaking it down into to much detail.
The fourth season:
At the conclusion of the third season, Sheridan had "sacrificed" himself in the hopes of destroying the Shadows at Z'Ha'Dum. The fourth season leads in with Sheridan still missing which also leads into a search for Mr. Garibaldi who went missing at about the same time as Sheridan.

Babylon 5 is unusual for american television and television in general because it is great science fiction. You are presented with characters you can like, characters you can hate, and characters that will disappoint you. The characters are not one dimensional, and the show keeps you rivetted all the way through.Most shows have a kind of villian of the week mentality, and what happened the week before has little relevance to what happens this week. Babylon 5 doesn't, and in fact there are things characters do in season one that don't make sense till season 3 and beyond.
At the start of the season after the "cliffhanger"(Oh, I know this is a terrible pun) ending of season 3 we watch as the characters have try to figure out what to do next. Sheridan is most likely dead on Z'ha'dum, and Garabaldi has disappeared. The Shadows have paused as they try to recover from the large hole the whitestar made in there homeworld as it made its final attack with two powerful nuclear devices. Londo is on Centauri Prime and has one of his nightmares confirmed as the Emperor gives the shadows a small island to use as a base. G'kar has decided to go looking for Garabaldi. From here everything starts getting worse as the Shadows and Vorlons begin using massive planet killers to destroy anyone supporting the other. The Alliance Sheridan struggled to put together is falling apart, G'kar is captured by the Centauri, and when they find Garabaldi he is not the same.
Then when all seems darkest Sheridan returns with one of the best lines ever. (Drazi Ambassador) "Captain...we thought you were dead." (Capt. Sheridan)"I was. I'm better now.
