Much improved quality.
Verified purchase
These are newly sourced 4:3 versions from Warner Bro's master tapes, and while not full-blown 'bluray', you're not going to get any better than these. Colours are more vibrant and FX are much better now they're not cropped to fit 16:9.

This is now the remastered version available on iTunes
Verified purchase
Updated: Amazon UK have updated the video content to the same 4:3 SD remaster from the broadcast tapes as is available on iTunes. However, anybody thinking about purchasing might want to wait for a Blu-ray release of the HD version that is being shown on the HBO streaming service in the US. That version is even better than this one although any frames containing CGI and other VFX elements have had to be upscaled from SD.

Babylon Squared Cut!
Verified purchase
Possibly one of the most important episode’s ( both on here and ITunes ) is cut! The ending is completely missing? Running time 41 minutes.... 3 whole minutes missing.... it’s all narrative for the great episodes in the ark that follow, no violence no other reason to cut it and also in this edit there is a brief appearance of an advert banner...

It would have been a five ... hope Amazon can source a better copy....?

A great upgrade, worth watching
Verified purchase
Babylon 5 was one of those special shows, with a pre-written five-year arc ready to go; add to this, state-of-the-art Special Visual Effects, the first TV show to use CGI (Computer Generated Imagery) exclusively, along with some incredible make-ups too.

A full-on world/universe-building drama, that draws you in, and takes you into some remarkably interesting situations and wonderful performances to keep you in the story.

But those VFX although cutting edge at the time, suffered from technologically limited source material. Which meant those effects looked progressively worse over the years.

The standard refrain preventing the show from ‘remastering’ to High Definition was the CGI data was ‘lost’ – and/or ‘too expensive’ and the effects wouldn’t stand up to scrutiny in HD.

Then – out of the blue. Babylon 5 ‘Remastered’ in HD appears. I was reluctant to watch, because of the quality concerns. But I was amazed and delighted to see the result.

As the shows were shot on 35mm – they rescanned the negatives to HD, and the results are there up on the screen.

The Costumes, and the Alien ‘make ups’ really stand out & only adds to the pleasure of watching them again.

The VFX? Well, they’re good result for such an upgrade, and now they come across as the ‘look of the B5 universe’. For those who remember it from back in the day, Fear not, it’s a worthy upgrade.

‘The year is 2258 – this is the story of the Last of the Babylon Stations…

Complete First Season - no pilot
Verified purchase
This set contains the complete first season of Babylon 5 (Signs and Portents).
When I looked for the pilot episode (the Gathering) though, I could not find it, only a link to this first season box set, starting with the episode Midnight on the Firing Line. Prime offers the TV movie "In the Beginning" which summarises prior events, but it would be better if the pilot was included as a stand-alone, or within this set. people might mistake 'In the Beginning' for the pilot, which it isn't. It actually offers spoilers for the first season, if you haven't seen that yet.

Still very enjoyable after all these years

Not watched Babalon 5 in years, but I still really enjoyed it. My only complaint is that they never upgraded the image quality to full hd.

Great Show

It is great. The picture quality is what you would expect from a series that old but the storyline and characters make up for it. I recommend it for all SyFy lovers.
