My rating: 2 of 5 stars
The two stories on this DVD are essentially radio plays with minimal effects thrown in. The stories are mostly two, or occasionally three, characters conversing. The content of those conversations consist of some religious mumbo-jumbo and some musings on the nature of free will versus destiny. Not horrible, but we expect more from Straczynski. The sets are spartan and the CGI is frankly a bit crude, and only three of the series regulars are featured—obviously, there was very little budget allocated to this production. The DVD extras are only for die-hard Babylon 5 fans (well, that could also be easily said for the movie itself). Let’s hope that this sells well enough for Warner Bros. to green light more “Lost Tales” with bigger budgets. With the success of Battlestar Galactica, Stargate, and other SF television, it seems there should be a market for a quality return of Babylon 5.
