Here you will find various bits of trivia, clips, quotes, screen shots and fan works related to the greatest TV show ever made.
~I love Ivanova. And Londo. And Garibaldi. And I think I’ll like Talia too eventually.
~The laughtears are real.
~ I do believe B5 just PASSED THE FREAKING BECHDEL TEST. In the first episode!
Yup! B5 does it EVERY EPISODE too, and if you want to get really picky they pass the race Bechdel test too almost every episode (having two characters of a racial minority have a conversation).
I notice you used a Thor gif and I just wanted to add that the original Thor movie was written by the guy who wrote Babylon 5, and you might notice the similarities in how both pass the Bechdel test with flying colors and have a TON of badass ladies.
Oh, and the laughtears are only going to get worse. SO. MUCH.WORSE.
Edit: Actually, as a side note, I can think of one episode from MUCH later in the show that does not pass the Bechdel test, but that’s for a very good reason which is the fact that only 2 characters are speaking the entire episode and its a deliberate break with episode format up to that point for artistic reasons. Still, B5 will make it difficult to go back to shows that do not pass the most basic Bechdel test requirements (coughSupernaturalcough).
That episode in question is actually my favourite episode in the whole series.
I wonder if that makes me a bad person…
