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.

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.

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.

their isn't much to Babylon 5 The Lost Tales.

I like Tracy Scoggins and this is not a bash on her but her character really needs to use fewer words to say more instead of speaking far too many words while not saying much.

the first "lost tale" had too much dialogue, at first I liked it but over time it got tiring and the last 5 minutes really were the worst....not ... well ok pretty bad, too much dialogue they needed more coin to spend on something else other than 2 ppl walking down hallways.

the 2nd episode suffered from the same malady as the first albeit the CGI budget was blown on the 2nd episode and was money well spent, I liked it, I really liked the attention to detail on the Star Fury's and the future scenes but the episode was slow.

all actors did their job well, no complaints and I really liked John's mentioning that the Pak'Mara loved any joke that finished with "when properly cooked"... made me laugh out loud.

both tales taken together are a disappointment, they don't really mean much and while worth watching were weak, I'll watch them again but like on a rainy Sunday when I've got nothing else to do, could have been better and really should have been but I'll give it a 60% pass I guess.
