B5 Gaiman Script Announced

J. Michael Straczynski (creator and writer of Babylon 5, and Neil Gaiman fan) announced at the San Diego Comicon that Neil will definitely be writing a season 5 episode. For those interested in B5, there’s no better page than the Lurker’s Guide to Babylon 5, one of the few pages I visit regularly.

Despite a shaky start (I once said to J. Michael on Compuserve — not knowing who he was — that the B5 pilot “sucked!”) Babylon 5 has become one of the best sci-fi shows around, with well done scripts, stories that run over huge arcs, and something you don’t often see in any TV show: change. I love it.
