It was announced last week that one of my favourite show Babylon 5 is going to get a reboot on the CW network.
Your first thought is what is Babylon 5? Shame on you for missing out on one of the best Sci Fi shows of the 90s:
“Babylon 5 is an American space opera television series created by writer and producer J. Michael Straczynski, under the Babylonian Productions label, in association with Straczynski’s Synthetic Worlds Ltd. and Warner Bros. Domestic Television. After the successful airing of a test pilot movie on February 22, 1993, Babylon 5: The Gathering, Warner Bros. commissioned the series for production in May 1993 as part of its Prime Time Entertainment Network (PTEN). The show premiered in the US on January 26, 1994, and ran for five 22-episode seasons.”
When I first heard about this reboot I sighed as most modern reboots suck balls, one of the exceptions being the new Battlestar Galactica.
But then I read that the original creator of the show JMS (J. Michael Straczynski) I have some hope for this project as he will not want to crap all over his previous work.
Lets wait and see.
