Warner Brothers Babylon 5: Complete Fifth Season [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC], fitting tribute to a timeless sci fi classic bye bye b5
If you are a babylon 5 fan,season 5 is worth getting. Its a brilliant end to a five year story. The last episode sleeping in the light was the best ending of a scfi series that i have ever seen. I used to be a big fan of star trek but after watching all 5 season of babylon 5 i can say that babylon 5 is one of the greatest scfi series ever made and they will be nothing else like it. I also recommend season 1,2,3,4 which are fantastic. You can never get tired of watching babylon 5 becouse the storys are just amazing and its hard to stop watching them. So if you are not a babylon 5 fan you should give it a try and see if you like it start from the pilot which is the gathering and then go on to season 1,2,3,4,5.
The saddest end of all tv series. If you must watch b5, if i must give one unique reason, that would be this one : “sleeping in light”, the last episode of the series. You’ll cry because of its beauty, that episode is such a touching one.Frank’s soundtrack is wonderful, and “sleeping in light” really rings the knell of the show in a distressing way. You’ll snivel like a kid, i’m sure of that.
Excellent series – can’t be beaten. I haven’t watched babylon 5 for 20 years or more but have always remembered it with fondness. I treated myself the the whole series and binge watched over the course of a couple of weeks and yes – as with the first time round i cried at the final episode.

Fitting tribute to a timeless sci fi classic bye bye b5. Not as dull as some on here would make out, but a fitting end to 5 seasons of superb sci fi, the scene where the station is destroyed brought a lump up the old throat and closed the series (pardon the pun) with a bang, a good way to go out, makes me wonder where it would have gone on to if it had not been cut, i like to think a couple more seasons at least, the storylines seemed to be there.
Possible spoilerswhat follows is the briefest of overviews, season 5 has lot more going on. The year 2262 sees the beginning of the end for season 5.

The best season of them all – quite possibly. Nearly 15 years on and this show is still talked about with awe. I would award 6 stars to this season alone, if i could, now i have watched it for about the 7th time. I feel that a lot of reviewers missed the point of the final series. It wasn’t a bolt on – the full story, as written, got told – however as we all know, there was some meddling with the story arcs to get the major plot lines completed come the end of series 4 and maybe series 5 ended up being stronger for it – for you do get this sense of melanchollia and loss as the series hones in to the final sublime episode. Therefore the reason why babylon 5 is so successful is becauase of this series. Series 1-4 were full of fast action packed episodes, however series 5 works more on your emotion centres – guiding us to the emotional charged final episode. But you do have to go on the voyage to get there. G’kar and londo steal the series with some of the finest acting i have ever witnessed in a made for tv drama and in the end you feel utter despair for londo – a lost and broken soul. Long before the final episode “sleeping in the light” – the emotions get tugged and “day of the dead”; “a tragedy of telepaths”; “all my dreams, torn assunder”; “movements of fire and shadow”.
