It's in the link I provided. (bottom left corner).

The BGH looked like some hawaiian scooby-doo monster.
All the episode needed was for the Ranger to yell "Zoinks!".

The BGH is the same as the foot-ship?

The BGH is on the "Close Encounters"-like ship with the pink and other coloured lights.

So I guess they aren't making a B5 movie after all.

Well, someone owes me ten bucks. I knew it.

B5 is dead, again. Long live B5.

Straczynski's right: it's not his fault that no one is excited to do a B5 movie....it needs "big name stars" (as opposed to a great script).

It was also not his fault that Legend of The Rangers was not a huge success: according to him, it's the very best of B5.
Must be the fans. Or the studio. Someone.

That really sums it all up.

Hmm, he thinks that? Must be suffering from the same affliction as Rick Berman re: Nemesis.

No, that's just what Jason would like us all to think about JMS ever since he suffered that emotional trauma from watching Legends.

Yes indeed.

JMS does not blame the fans but every time someone points out a flaw in his productions, he does try to lay the blame elsewhere.
Usually "studio execs".

..and he really does still say that his LOTR was great.

Sounds a LOT like Berman about Nemesis now atht I think of it.

Well, I can't say I'm surprised, and I can't say I'm very disappointed. Though I would've loved to see more B5 (especially after JMS has been talking up the movie like it was a done deal for the last year or so), I feel that a feature film would not be the ideal venue for any continuation of the B5 saga. JMS' biggest strengths lie in the long-running story arcs and the subtle plotting, not the quick-and-dirty, one-shot features.

I agree. And really, what else is there to tell in this story? The events between the end of the series and "Sleeping in Light" have been covered in the novels if you're interested enough to read them (so far, I haven't been). We don't know what JMS had planned for the Crusade overall arc, but what we do know or can infer suggests it was really more of the same - Shadow tech, dodgy Earth governance, etc. If he wants to sustain interest he needs to get that stuff out there in one form or another, not keep it secret forever while blaming TNT and everyone else. And as for Legends of the Rangers: To Live and Die in Starlight (to give it its whole, awful title) the whole thing was a mess. And all I was thinking while watching it was "Oh, God, another mysterious race threatening the galaxy, this time called The Hand. How daft is that?"

Their defeat shall come at the hands of corned beef sandwich. It's the same method "Tom" Cruise used in that movie a while back, War of the Worlds I think.
