Babylon 5 Reboot

Link to full article:

Fans of the iconic, beloved, heart-wrenching Babylon 5 series will be interested to hear that it’s getting a “from-the-ground-up” reboot. And it’s not just some enthusiastic rando in charge, either: J. Michael Straczynski is in charge. He’s writing the pilot, and he’ll be running the show.

According to an early synopsis from Warner Bros., in the rebooted series, “John Sheridan, an Earthforce officer with a mysterious background, is assigned to Babylon 5, a five-mile-long space station in neutral space, a port of call for travelers, smugglers, corporate explorers and alien diplomats at a time of uneasy peace and the constant threat of war. His arrival triggers a destiny beyond anything he could have imagined, as an exploratory Earth company accidentally triggers a conflict with a civilization a million years ahead of us, putting Sheridan and the rest of the B5 crew in the line of fire as the last, best hope for the survival of the human race.”

Worst idea since woman's suffrage.

Oh, this ought to be fun.  Another series for what's left of the TV industry to woke another series into oblivion.  Yay...

Yeah, I'm expecting the same kind of "white man bad" crap we've been getting since 2016.  Some people are still butt hurt that a garden variety narcissist got elected over a psychopathic former First Lady.
