I would sincerely like to hear from viewers who have purchsed or viewed both series.
My Quick Point: much more excitement and enjoyment for me from Babylon 5.
I viewed only season 1 and miniseries of Battlestar Galactica whereas I am halfway through the 5th and final season of Babylon 5.
I just wasn't as engrossed in Battlestar as I'd hoped to be and with the high pricing of a split set for season 2 (when I hit Best Buy sale, they only had half the set for the $19) and and Season 3 not yet out... I'm not sure that viewing Season 2 and 3 would change my views from my viewing of season 1 and would like to hear your thoughts on that. Not sure I want to expend the cost of 2 more seasons if I would still be only somewhat interested in the series of Battlestar Galactica.
I was much more wrapped into the storylines of Babylon 5 and personlly believe it should stand up against any praise of Battlestar Galactica as as worthy. I have been manic in finishing off the full 5 seasons of Babylon 5 and have the Babylon Movie Collection and Lost Tales already on order to be shipped. So I'm a huge fan of the Babylon 5 series. It is the most engrossing, exciting sci-fi series I have ever viewed.
