Babylon 5 turned 20 last friday. If that doesn't make you feel old then you probably weren't old enough to watch sci fi yet when it was on the air. I don't think it's wrong to say that B5 changed the way sci fi stories were told on tv. No more seasons filled with stand alone episodes where the characters actions had no effect on the world around them. It definitely changed the way fans interacted with the show creators and gave birth to online fandom. And if it weren't for B5 online fandom we of course wouldn't have the modern ubiquitous internet term lurker. Currently doing a rewatch of this series and falling in love with it all over again.
