Babylon 5 – 20 Years Since The First Season Began!

By SFJunkie | | TV

  Today 20 years ago on January 26, 1994, Babylon 5 kicked off it’s first season. Almost a year before that, on February 22, 1993, the pilot The Gathering aired and it took almost a full year before Babylon 5‘s first season began. Since about 1987 Creator J.M Straczynski had the Babylon 5 universe in his head. Five or six years before anybody heard of a Narn, a Minbari or a Centauri, they were already alive in Straczynski’s mind.

Few exceptions of course with¬†Doctor Who¬†and¬†Defiance,¬†Falling¬†Skies¬†and perhaps¬†Continuum. Fortunately these four tv shows are doing rather well so the next year we get new seasons for all three.¬†Haven, some say it’s just supernatural, some say it does have sci-fi elements, in any case, it had a good run till now and although not (yet) renewed for season five, the fourth season is as steady as the other seasons.¬†Warehouse 13¬†of course also has a strong relation to sci-fi but season five will …
