    Rumors have swirled for years that JMS has allegedly contemplated a reboot theatrical movie of Babylon 5,.....

    .....I have to admit it is tempting to root for such a project.

    But would a rebooted TV series be better? Such a series could learn from the errors and unfortunate cast changes that were inflicted upon babylon 5

I would be happier with a reboot. The old show looked kind of cheap and personally I would never have hired half the cast.

I think a reboot with a good budget could work. I liked the serialized nature of the episodes...but that was about all I liked. Most of the actors were horrible. The sets were horrible. The special effects were horrible. The costumes were horrible (well Londo's people dressed to the nines...I've got to give them that one)

I think most of the cast has gotten old or died so I'm fine with just rebooting it.
