To hear JMS tell it, it was the L.A. offices of TNT that were responsible for bringing B5 back for season 5. They seemed to "get" the show. Once Crusade started, the corporate offices in Atlanta got involved. Apparently, their idea of entertainment were the "Wrasslin'" shows on the network and they started pressuring JMS to sex up the show and put in more fight scenes. The brawl at the beginning of the second pilot episode was result of network meddling as was the affair between Gideon and Lochley.
