Crusade
« on: September 17, 2018, 08:41:33 PM »

So I'm at the point in my viewing of Babylon 5 where I'm supposed to break off and watch Crusade (I just finished A Call to Arms).

Up until this point I've been watching everything, except the movies, for "free" through my Amazon Prime membership. However, Crusade is not included in Prime, so I would have to buy Crusade separately and it's more expensive than all the movies put together...

So my question is, should I buy Crusade? Pros: The only pro I know without watching it is I won't miss anything or miss any references later. Cons: the cost, I've heard Crusade wasn't that great, and it's only 13 episodes so not sure it will be worth it

Welcome any thoughts from anyone who has watched all of Babylon 5, but has or has not watched Crusade.

I watched crusade just once for a long time ago and in my opinion :

- for a bab5 fan it is is really worth to watch but dont expect to much from it

- for a casual viewer it is not this good

But before watching crusade i suggest you to watch all the movies  :yes:

I will buy Crusade in the next months because i am a bab 5 fan and i like canceled stories xD

I have watched all of B5, the films and Crusade, to be honest, Crusade,  is not that good and I do not think it will affect your viewing of B5 if you do not watch it.

 Thank you DeDarkstar and Teddy. I ended up not watching Crusade. I feel a little like there's a hole in my Bab 5 universe, but I'm not too torn up. If I have an opportunity to watch it at some point I will, but not at the current cost.

And I finished Bab5 and all the movies. Whew! It was so good! I really enjoyed the last episode. In general I'm a crier, I get teary eyes at emotional  commercials sometimes, and I started crying almost before I started the dang episode, lol. I think I went through about 5 tissues. But I think it was done really well and felt like a good end.

I can't believe I haven't had this in my life until now. I think I'm gonna have to rewatch it with my hubby sometime, and I've advocated for my parents to watch it, and they said they will, eventually.

I had been a fan of B5 back in the day. Seeing these threads makes me want to revisit that show, so I'll need to do some digging our storage boxes to see if we still have the DVD's on hand. Thank you @MissCobra1018 for starting this. :)

Sadly no we don't have the DVD's any longer. Hubby informs me we gave them away years ago. Oh well.  :fp

That's too bad @Ellen_Ripley!

Not sure how this works outside of the States, but I watched them all on Amazon Prime. All of the seasons are included in the prime membership (which I already had, still have. We got a membership initially to watch Doctor Who, but we use it a bunch now). I had to buy the movies, though.
