Cette édition zone 1 qui comprend la nouvelle version du pilote (effets numériques retravaillés, nouvelle musique du compositeur de la série, 16:9 anamorphique comme le reste de la série), est la seule depuis l'édition belge devenue collector à offrir un sous-titre français, le DVD fourni dans l'intégrale britannique Babylon 5 - The Complete Series (Inc Lost Tales) [Import anglais] ne comportant que la VO sous-titrée en anglais.

Ce DVD offre également le téléfilm "In The Beginning" sur la face B (VF,VOST, se situe à la fin de la saison 4), le même que celui de l'intégrale.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Important to own 8 octobre 2013
Par C. A. Coshow Jr. - Publié sur
Format: DVD Achat vérifié
Babylon 5 was unique in SciFi for it's achievement: a single chronicle of the last of the Babylon stations. You can get most of the story from watching the five seasons. But to really appreciate it (especially as a TV production), you need to watch "The Gathering," the original pilot episode. It also sets up some plots that don't come to fruition for a season or two, but it's good to see how they began. The version I received has Mira Furlan's (Delenn) original dialog dubbed back in. When this episode was broadcast, they had digitally fiddled with her voice to make her sound "asexual." And there are some edits made that make the story come across a little better.

"In the Beginning" is a movie that tells the story of the Earth/Minbari War, which was a brutal conflict. This is told through many of the characters we know from the series, many of whom (somewhat improbably) meet years before they did on the station, even though we never see or hear them speak of their prior acquaintance. Eh. <shrugs> Whaddya want? It's a good story, and explains a bit more about a major plot point involving humans, Minbari, and Valen.

This is a great DVD to own, because you get two independent "movies" about the show. You can show a friend "In the Beginning," and get them interested in the show. I found I had to "nurse" my wife through Season 1, but after that she was hooked.

This is a good purchase.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The best sci-fi series ever made. 24 octobre 2001
Par cyberRocker - Publié sur

My wife & I watched the entire series seasons 1-5, put up with the strange times of the night it was shown (before TNT), taped the entire TNT series, and we are now watching our tapes for the 3rd time. Babylon 5 plays like a wonderful long movie you want to see over again every year or so. For that reason alone, I am ready to buy all 5 seasons on DVD. It deserves to be sold as a season-by-season box set for the fans (TV movies included), along with releases of 2 shows each (like the VHS releases) for those that don't want to buy it all at once. I would also highly recommend the companion B5 guide books by Jane Killick or Andy Lane while you watch this classic, well made series.
3.0 étoiles sur 5 Watch after you've seen a little bit of the show. 17 novembre 2014
Par GeoffL - Publié sur

I actually watched this after seeing the first 6 episodes or so of the first season. I'm glad I did it that way, because the actors in the show had not settled into their final roles, the costume and make-up artists had not finalized the characters' looks (and in some 1 case gender), and some actors in the pilot did not make the show (it is a pilot after all). So it would've been really confusing to have started here.

Nevertheless, I don't think it is skippable because other episodes do allude back to things that occurred in this one. It won't blow you away, but gives some good origin for some of the characters and their arrival on the station, and is kind of neat from a commentary standpoint to see early plans for the show and its characters.

Babylon 5 - The Gathering (Series Pilot Film) is one hour and thirty-four minutes long and premiered on the PTEN network on February 22, 1993. The movie deals with the opening of the space station Babylon 5. Think United Nations and you get the idea. All of the key ambassadors have arrived with the exception of one; Ambassador Kosh from the Vorlon Empire. Within minutes of coming off his ship Ambassador Kosh is poisoned. The rest of the movie deals with finding who poisoned Ambassador Kosh and why. We find out who did it; a Minbari from a renegade warrior caste but, we never find out why. Also we are introduced to the key characters in the series. Ambassador G'Kar from the Narn Regime, Ambassador Delenn from the Minbari Federation, Ambassador Londo Mollari from the Centauri Republic and we also get a brief glimpse into their history as well. When season one kicked off, major changes were done to the characters and new one are introduced as well. This is not a bad pilot episode.

There are two versions of this movie; the VHS and the DVD version. In the VHS version the music score is composed by Stewart Copeland of Police fame. In the DVD version there is a new score composed by Christopher Franke. Also gone in the DVD is the trip Commander Jeffrey Sinclair and telepath Lyta Alexander take through the alien sector to get to her quarters. The fans said the alien sector looked like a zoo. Also the DVD version has an extra fourteen minutes film. Babylon 5 - The Gathering won an Emmy Award in 1994 for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Special Visual Effects. I am giving Babylon 5 - The Gathering a B+.

Babylon 5 - In The Beginning (Prequel Film) is one hour and thirty-four minutes long and premiered on the TNT network on January 4, 1998. This movie deals with the Earth-Minbari War and how the war happens and why the Minbari surrender at the Battle of the Line. The movie opens 35 years after the Earth-Minbari War on Centauri Prime in the Emperor's Palace. Londo Mollari is a very aged Emperor and his home world is nothing more than a ball of fire. There are a couple of children playing in the Royal Throne Room and Emperor Londo orders them to come here. He lets the boy in the room to be Emperor for five minutes and in that time Londo will grant him one wish. The boy asks for a story of war, battles, heroes, and villains and the girl there wants a true story so Londo gives then both what they want.

The story begins sometime after the Dilgar War and Earth is doing a sphere of influence campaign and has heard of the race called the Minbari. The ask Earth Ambassador Londo Mollari for any information about this race. Mollari warns them that they are a very old and powerful race and should be left alone. If Earth does insist on going then send one ship. Earth does not take his advice and sends an expedition fleet they are led by gun-ho Captain. The Captain ignores Earth orders not to engage with the Minbari and when the Minbari cruisers arrive with gunports open as a sign of respect and strength. Captain Michael Jankowski does not know this and opens fire on the cruisers accidently killing Gray Council leader Dukhat. This would trigger the start of the Earth-Minbari War which would last three years.

In The Beginning have some actors in the movie that appeared in the Babylon 5 television show. Theodore Bikel plays Lenonn, Ranger 1, in the movie and Rabbi Koslov in Season One episode TKO. Robin Atkin Downes as Morann in the movie and Byron and Morann is Season Five. Tricia O'Neil as the Earth Alliance President in the movie and M'Ola in Season One episode Believers. Babylon 5 - In The Beginning gets an AAA+++ for the special effects and answering some of the questions from the television show.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 And So It Begins ... 31 octobre 2001
Par Stephen C. Smith - Publié sur
Format: DVD Achat vérifié
Reportedly the version of the two-hour pilot movie "The Gathering" on this DVD will be "Version 2.0", if you will.
The version that aired in 1993 was considered by many to be dull and muddled. B5 creator J. Michael Straczynski later placed the blame on director Richard Compton, who he felt chose the wrong takes in an attempt to emphasize the station itself rather than the actors' performances.
"Version 2.0", released in 1999, was heavily revised by JMS and producer John Copeland. They tightened up the storyline, upgraded the effects and, most importantly, dug up from the archives alternate takes that showed stronger performances by the actors. Some scenes that slowed down the pacing have been dropped, while other scenes that emphasized the characters and the plot have been restored.
If you can get hold of the original version, compare it to "Version 2.0" and enjoy a clinic in the right (and wrong) way to edit a movie.
Like any pilot, though, the actors have yet to find their characters and the writer/creator is still finding their voices. That's the point of any pilot, so don't unnecessarily bash it just because the look of some aliens changed later in the series. A pilot is supposed to sell the show as a series, and that it did. But "The Gathering" is also important because of B5's unique structure -- a five-season "novel for television", and "The Gathering" is the opening chapter. Plot lines established in this episode resonate throughout the next five years, sometimes not even paying off until late in the series.
If "The Gathering" is Chapter 1, "In The Beginning" is the prologue. Told in flashback by one of the primary characters years after the events seen in the series, the story takes place ten years before the events seen in "The Gathering". Throughout the B5 saga, we hear about the Earth-Minbari War and even see snippets of flashback. But this film finally lets us take the ride in total.
Another interesting advantage of comparing these two films is to observe how JMS's storytelling skills improved with experience. Early in the series, episodes tended to bog down with expository narrative as he struggled to find an effective means of planting with the viewer certain information that would be needed down the line. (In fact, if you go back and watch the first season episodes, virtually every one contains some plot point that pays off down the line in future seasons.) With four years under his belt -- and freed of the need to story arc plot points -- he's free to tell a whopper of a story.
"In The Beginning" does have some inconsistencies with what was established in the series -- in particular, a rather improbable adventure involving several of the series' regulars who don't seem to have any memory of it when they reunite years later on the station -- but in typical Straczynski fashion we're entertained while at the same time reminded of the conseqences of our own human foibles and arrogance.
Finally, I'll chip in with a message for WB. As others have posted, I've held off on buying the VHS series because I was waiting for DVD. Please, release the series season-by-season in box sets. With commentary by JMS. His people are waiting.
