Hi all,
	A few months ago I did something I'd thought I'd never do: scrap
my laserisc collection for something new. This is NOT intended to be a LD
vs. DVD thread, but I've found that the DVD format would probably be the
absolute BEST way for Babylon 5 to be presented on home video. You could
fit two, MAYBE three episodes on one layer, an there are 4 layers possible
on a DVD disc. That gives you the possibility of one ENTIRE season on only
	Since Warner has been putting out scads of DVDs since March, I'd
say that the entire B5 saga on 10 DVDs would be well worth the time and
money. It would be a serious space saver too, better to have 10 discs than
over 100 videotapes. I'd have a VERY hard time buying anything but DVDs
since I have most of the series on SVHS tape.
	Has anyone at B5 (Joe?) or Warner thought of this?
