TV/Movie Talk [Public] / Re: The CW Doing a Babylon 5 Reboot
« Last post by Jeff Tanyard on Today at 02:53:43 PM »
Upon seeing this thread title, I was immediately horrified.  So I went a-googling for more info:

https://www.space.com/babylon-5-reboot-in-development

This caught my eye:

Confirmation from JMS's twitter:





Not just producing, but writing.  Color me optimistic.

Considering the Hollywood hellmouth turns reboots into brain-damaged pap, we'll probably get Wokeylon 57.

:doh:

Bad enough that it's another reboot but add The CW to that and, oy, I cannot help but wonder how much of a disaster this is going to be.

I haven't seen the recent movies.  Of the 20th-century movies, my favorites are Wrath of Khan, Undiscovered Country, and First Contact.

First Contact is currently free to watch on YouTube, by the way.   :banana:

When it comes to DeForest Kelley versus Karl Urban, I was actually really pleased with Karl Urban. They might not have shared similar looks but I felt like Urban made me feel like he was Bones. :)

The only reason The Wrath of Khan isn't one of my favorites is because it's heartbreaking and then it leads into The Search for Spock which is also heartbreaking. I love them all though and think The voyage Home is the perfect cap to that little trilogy inside the series.

I remember when there were people complaining the original cast was "too old" to play the characters anymore because it wasn't believable for them to be fighting bad guys and all that.  But, "Balance of Terror" and The Wrath of Khan both showed that you can have a good, high stakes story without any fisticuffs.  So the age complaint was just ageism and not really a valid complaint.  More so since this is scifi and a lot of scifi stories can be told that don't involve hand-to-hand combat.

Anyway, I can't help but think of The Wrath of Khan, The Search for Spock and The Voyage Home as a trilogy.  The opening of The Final Frontier kind of wraps it all up too though where you have Kirk, Spock and McCoy acknowledging that the three of them are basically their own real family.

I'm probably biased toward Beyond because Bones and Spock are my favorite characters in the ST OS universe. Data was my favorite NG character. :)

The actors didn't matter so much. Bones was older even in the OS and I was in middle school watching reruns and still had a crush on him. :D

Balance of Terror has been my favorite episode since the first time I watched it as a kid, although City on the Edge of Forever is pretty close.

For me, movie-wise/story-wise, there's Wrath of Khan and then everything else. Although a distant second, First Contact is pretty good too. But my favorite one to re-watch is JJ's reboot. It's just fun. Voyage Home is too. "No, I'm from Iowa, I only work in space."

Voyage is pretty good, but I prefer Wrath of Khan. Most of the others are dull to bad. I'd (re-re-re-)watch Balance of Terror ten times before revisiting any of those.

The reboot cast is stellar, but it's vaguely dissatisfying recasting these characters at all. I enjoyed Trek and Beyond well enough despite that. Into Darkness should have started there and never emerged.
