Well, I watched Babylon 5: Legend of the Rangers on Saturday.

Was it JMS at the pinnacle of his form good?

No, but then neither was Babylon 5 for at least a season. It's quite possible to watch season 1 B5 and think this is pretty good, sure, but I won't claim I could have predicted just how far the show would go at that point.

Rangers was shaky a couple of places. A little too Trek-like once in a while. Prone to abusing the inevitable catch phrase. And the promised big plot will have to surpass a lot of what B5 has ever done before to really deliver. But by the time that final fanboy-pleasing shot rolled around, I was quite certain I wanted to see more.
