Babylon 5: What Might Have Been   (1 Hour - General Discussion - Rating: G)
Babylon 5: What Might Have Been This J. Michel Straczynski Television Epic began with a 2 Hour Movie in 1993. 15 Years, 110 Episodes, 5 More movies and 1 Direct To Video Production later ... The series finally ground to a halt. Along the way, Straczynski was often forced to make unplanned changes to the story because of Cast Resignations, Cast Firings, and Changing Priorities at Warner Brothers Distribution and the TNT Network. Because of this, certain story arcs were occasionally begun and then later dropped as though that particular tale had never even started. So let's spend a bit of time looking at what might have been if things had gone much closer to the original plan of JMS.
