Baby­lon 5

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - 20 greatest tv shows -

With an au­da­cious set- up ( a space sta­tion serv­ing as the uni­verse’s “last, best hope for peace”), an ar­ray of aliens later ri­valled only by Farscape, all of them ut­terly be­witch­ing, and a fas­ci­nat­ing cen­tral mys­tery that played out in the kind of arc- plot only rarely seen on tele­vi­sion in the mid’ 90s, Baby­lon 5 was one hel­luva show. It also had some of the great­est char­ac­ters and sit­u­a­tions in sci- fi his­tory ( G’Kar and Londo’s re­la­tion­ship be­ing the big­gest high­light). Most of all, how­ever: it had balls.
