    The only statement with creditability that I know of is from JMS himself back in August.

    A priority to warners eh.. Looks like Warner Bros failed to anticipate the huge demand for this excellent series.. I'm betting it sold quite a lot more than WB thought it would and hence will most likely (hopefully) do good stuff to the good seasons (2-4)

    I really wished they carried on with Crusade.. but you never know - if Babylon 5 continues to do well in DVD sales then maybe WB can consider going back to the Bab 5 universe..

    Warner really has no idea what they're doing in the TV dept.

    Smallville is the prime example. Here's a show they expected to do well with their prime demographic, while ignoring everyone else. It turns out to be doing extremely well with males in the 24-40+ age braket, a market the WB never intended to market the show to. They don't understand what a "good show" is.

    They have a network of their own on which to air the show, if they so chose, but they seem to want to have only one type of audience for all their shows (and, of course, under the assumption that no significant part of the so-called "coveted demographic" would ever be interested in a B5 spin-off, or whatever). I don't understand such thinking. Too many of their "focus group" droids not know what the word "science fiction" means, or write "Eyw, yuck. Geezers over 30." on their response sheets to the question: "What one thing would you say about your reaction to a 'science fiction' series?"?
    What a way to run an industry!
