Here in Canada we get Babylon 5 three times daily (same episode).
Naturally I've taped each episode, and have thoroughly enjoyed the
series. Yet I never watched the last episode, "Sleeping In Light." I
couldn't bring myself to watching it. I don't know if it was the
finality of it, or the fact that I'm a softie at heart and I knew I'd be
a wreck by time I got to the end of the first act.

Tonight, after a few weeks since that episode aired, I watched it.

And cried. And cried some more. In fact, I'm still getting over it, it's
been just over 20 minutes since I watched the end credits. This is the
most beautiful, most moving piece of television I have ever seen. It was
so wonderful to see all of the characters together, but so painful to
watch because they all gathered for a particular reason. I can't even
imagine what it must have been like to write this episode. 

Seeing how this is already taking me nearly half an hour to type (damned
if I can't stop crying!) I'd just like to thank you for this incredible
series. It has touched me like no other. I'm very proud to call myself a

So again, thank you.
