Format: DVD
This new DVD release of 'Babylon 5-The Lost Tales' is a welcome return to a show that many consider one of the best Sci Fi shows ever to have graced television.
The "Lost Tales' of the title consists of two vignettes,if you will,that are held together by a thread of the narrative/plot.The first concerns the demonic posession of a crew member which Capt.Lochley(Tracy Scoggins) with the help of a priest(Alan Scarfe,lately of Andromeda) has to contend with.This segment raises many philosophical questions about religion and the future of it and our place in it in the future.
The second segment concerns President Sheridans' return to B-5 to attend the 10th anniversary of the alliance.Along the way our/his pesky technomage Galen(Peter Woodward)returns with a view of what could be Earths' future demise.Sheridan is(delightful to watch!) peeved off at his return and tells him to get lost,but to no avail.It seems the "message" is too important and Sheridan must take steps to do something before it occurs.The technomage recommends a path but,as usual,Sheridan takes his own,much to his(the technomages')chagrin.Will it be enough,will it work?
The roughly 70 minute show ends as we all ponder his decision and he walks toward the anniversary celebrations on B-5.It leaves us with alot of unanswered questions and possibilities for the future of the B-5 universe and it leaves it wide open for more future B-5 movies(or another series?).
I have seen an interview recently at AOL with Mr.Straczynski in which he states that the bottom line as to whether or not anything further develops from this is dependant solely on its' sales and the response it garners.
Well I for one was left salivating for more after the 70 minutes of this movie came to its' very(seemingly) swift conclusion.

Format: DVD
I got my copy delivered from Amazon Canada today, and I've already watched the 72-minute episode.

The Single-Sentence Verdict?

If you're a fan of Babylon 5 -- whether hardcore, or simply someone who enjoyed the series-long story arc while it was on -- I think you'll enjoy this if you pick it up.

To Elaborate:

I loved B5 for its series-long story arc, and for the breadth and depth of its storytelling (the new Battlestar Galactica wasn't first in that regard), but I don't own the DVDs and I haven't watched an episode in years. It didn't matter. This disc gives you enough right off the top to remind you of what you should know, and to get you back in the groove.

If you're completely unfamiliar with B5, you should consider buying the boxed DVD sets, and then pick this up. :-)

The Good

It's essentially two stories in seventy-two minutes and it shows as a labor of creative love.

Babylon 5 Creator/Writer/Director Straczynski's trademark sharp writing (and humor) are in full evidence. The acting is solid, even from lesser players. Boxleitner (Sheridan) has improved as an actor with age, in my opinion. He's subtler in many ways; less "showy".

The visual effects are beyond what I expected for this sort of Direct-To-DvD project. Very nice, and well-used. Since there are no commercial breaks (hooray!), shifts in the story are most often signalled by a quick cut to an exterior shot.

The visual effects detail is markedly better than on the original show.

Format: DVD
JMS provides two pretty solid stories to the viewer with the budget that he had been given to make this DVD. It's a shame that this didn't restart some of the series since with some more money per show I think these could have reached the quality of the main series. There are moments where the Lost Tales does reach B5's level but unfortunately the lack of characters and the short length of the film at only 75 minutes stop it from being anything more then o.k. Still it was great to see the B5 universe for what now looks like the last time and JMS certainly has written the script well I just wish he had more support from the executives.

Having spent some time enjoying the series on DVD, I had to pick this up.

The visual effects look pretty damn good for a Direct to DVD release. (Of course it should, its been many years)
it makes me a little sad seeing the B5 station being obliterated at the beginning.

Anyway, the sets seem a bit sparse... very devoid but I guess the production had to cut the cost somewhere
so that we could get the visual effects that we are treated to here.
I found the effects wonderful and it goes to show how amazing this series would be if they ever attempted a TOS-TNG inspired remastering of the parent series itself.

The stories; I kind of felt that the first story was jarring. Its basically the exorcist aboard the space station. Although I could see it being a running storyline later... or had there been more stories following that.

The other stories are alright but I felt like far too many familiar faces were missing here. This DTD release was meant to
be a kick start a DTD release of anthology stories set in the Babylon 5 universe.

Its a shame it didn't do as well but then I can't really blame them because these stories didn't feel... like they had a hook to get us invested. The shabby looking sets didn't help either.

Still, a curious oddity this release is. Enjoy as a glimpse of how the visual effects could be amazing for Babylon 5 the series.

Cheers!
