Will Jammer ever review ‘Babylon 5’?

The question has come up many times. It has come up for years — decades, really. I know for a fact it came up when the show was still airing in first run, which, as I write this, ended more than 20 years ago. The reason I am writing this post is because the question continues to come up, and I want to have a handy link to send people with my answer.

Jammer, why haven’t you reviewed Babylon 5? Didn’t you like it?

The answer to this question is simple. I never watched Babylon 5 when it was on, and to this day I still have not watched it. Believe me, I’ve heard from many, many, many people over the years that it is great. I do not doubt them. But I cannot speak to it myself because I haven’t watched even one full episode of the series.

Why is this?

There is no real reason. It was just something I never got around to while it was on, and I haven’t gotten around to it since. I’m sure I probably could’ve made the time, but I simply haven’t. At this point, I consider it a case of having missed that particular boat many years ago.

Will I ever go back and watch it? Who knows? I will say that I have no plans to do so at this point. It’s just not a priority. It’s hard to add new shows to my routine, especially old ones I missed out on many years ago. With numerous currently airing shows currently in my viewing schedule, I am certainly not looking to add something else.

I understand that it would be a good fit for my website and the readers, but it’s just not a good fit for my schedule, so I won’t be taking it on. But thanks for being interested. I’m glad you are interested in my take on a show that’s been off the air for two decades. I’m sincerely flattered.

Maybe one day I will get around to going back and revisiting it. Maybe. But there’s no plan for that now. I’m filing this under “never say never,” but also “not going to make a special effort.”

Just in case I do end up watching it, I am still steering clear of spoilers. (Which is why commenting on this is closed.) And if I ever do take it on, you know where the announcement will be.
