Babylon 5 is a game-changing, ground breaking, emmy-award winning TV series that is in danger of becoming lost and forgotten.
We are not going to let that happen. Please join us and help #FreeBabylon5
With the greatest sadness we have learned of the recent death of Mira Furlan. Mira brought such strength and compassion to the charachter of Delenn. As JMS writes, qualities that were already part of her nature. Here are some tributes by her fellow cast and others.
Warner Media pressroom has released their hilights for HBO Max for January 2021 ... and Babylon 5 is coming to the streaming platform!
It really looks like this has happened, but without any fanfare or official announcement from Warner Brothers: Babylon 5 has been remastered! The video above was posted by the YouTube user "StarTrek EliteForce Remastered" who has posted this video comparing the two editions, and there is a huge difference: colours are more vibrant and the picture is much cleaner and less grainy. Some of the comments below the video suggest that this is an upscale (possibly using new AI technology) to the broad
This is a cool idea. Who would like to watch the series along with it's creator, pointing out plot points, discussing the production, and recalling interactions with cast & crew? I'd pay for that. > So I'm looking into doing livestream reaction videos to B5 episodes (and maybe some of the film work) for the folks on my Patreon page...researching programs that'll do that but most seem to use youtube links for the source not DVDs. Is there a program y'all would recommend? — J. Michael Straczyns
Ranger Marion reports that B5 is showing again on Tele 5 channel in Germany. Thanks for the information!
Hello. When I began this project at the start of the campaign, I was so pleased Jan allowed me to build this site. It has proved to be a pivotal part of the campaign to #FreeBabylon5, and continues to be a key part of that ongoing desire that we Lurkers have. As the years have gone by, I've striven to keep the site relevant with new content and to update the look and feel so that you always feel you want to come back and see what's going on with the campaign. However, it's been a bit neglecte
2 days ago, Jason Davis, writer, editor for Harlan Ellison and Babylon 5 historian, launched a Kickstarter campaign "Preserve the history of BABYLON 5 using archival paperwork and interviews with cast and crew to create a definitive making-of book." Twitter account @B5News has been promoting this project, and I'm really hoping you can back it too: The Babylon 5 Preservation Project on Kickstarter [https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1387618382/the-babylon-5-preservation-project]

Boy oh boy, it seems as if we're making some noise. Babylon 5 will start showing on UK's Sky One channel from 9:00am Mon 29 Oct. It's also showing on several other channels across Sky's network, including Sky HD. Although that one's hard to figure out, since no HD version exists. Full listings are here: TV Guide - Babylon 5 [https://www.tvguide.co.uk/titlesearch.asp?title=Babylon+5]
Along with some other classic sci fi series, Comet TV in the US will shortly start showing Babylon 5: > COMET ALERT! *** COMET ALERT! *** BABYLON 5 & SPACE 1999 ARE COMING TO COMET!

Fellow lurker Jay Fubler Harvey has started a campaign on change.org since we found out that Warner Brothers probably have the master negatives in storage somewhere. A recent tweet by series creator J Michael Straczynski states: "But at the end of each season we were required to transfer all digital assets direct to film, frame by frame, so Warners could have a version that could be used across all later formats. That version, with pristine CG and live action, has never seen the light of day."
It's June 1 and Amazon Prime is now carrying Babylon 5 - but apparently only in the US (with a glitch). Non-US folks, today is the perfect day to contact Amazon in your region and ask for Babylon 5! It's a good bet that they're aware of what new shows have just come on in other regions so hearing from you now is perfect timing. US folks, Today's also the perfect day to contact Amazon to thank them for B5 - and remind them that season 3 needs the switch flipped to make it included in Prime - a
