For years I have watched HTF members push Warner to release Babylon 5 in season sets. For years I have heard people talk about how great this show is. Today I had a long conversation with a friend who just submersed himself into Babylon 5. He tells me he is hooked on this show. In fact, in just a few short months he has gone through the first three seasons. He says it is by far the best Sci-Fi show ever made. He says it is equivalent to THE SOPRANOS but in a different genre. I'm ready to invest.....but I want to be sure. I have very little time on my hands. I still have many TV shows to catch up on. Is Babylon 5 the one I should invest my utmost priority in? I have also been told I should first watch the DVD, The Gathering before watching the very first episode. Any insight you can give on these sets would be greatly appreciated.
