Babylon 5: The War Prayer – SF Debris

Human extremists are stirring up trouble, drawing B5 into a polarized us versus them conflict that threatens to turn the station into a powder keg. So glad we don’t live in a place like that.

He should have gone with, “Guilty feet have got no rhythm.”

“Aquaman’s girlfriend.” Hey! Don’t be dissing Queen Mera. She’s pretty hot.

Interestingly, Delenn’s and G’Kar’s statements at the end are equally racist. They lump all humans in with the Home Guard, even those who worked to stop them. Of course one of the show’s eventual strengths is to show how all of the races have this and all come close to allowing themselves to be torn apart. Minbari Religious vs. Warrior Narn’s refusal to let go of hate for Centauri leads to bitter reprisals on boths side Centauri’s desire to return to glory helps unleash hell for everyone and leads to their near destruction Vorlon’s are so convinced of the methods… Read more »

It also shows how hatred feeds a cycle of hate and destruction. When one group acts out in hate, their targeted group will also act out in hate.

But then, what IS the answer? I don’t think there is a good one. Deny them any platform? Then they are vindicated in eyes of those that may be swayed by virtue of the system(s) they oppose keeping them down (See: various times M.Y. or R.S. gatherings have been protested/shut down. I’m not fully writing out their names because it would be like a beacon for trolls.) Allow them their platforms,… Read more »

Just wanted to give a nod to the fact that you said mid-review that you’d have to be desperate to listen to country music, then ended with a country song. Well played.

You seem to be doing the show in episode order now. Will you just skip over the later episodes you’ve already done or re-post them when they come up?

I think the male/female symbol was meant to represent the men and women(humans) of earth but I could be wrong it’s been ages.
