If you know Babylon 5
, the best science fiction series ever, then you probably have heart of Crusade (no website, see below why). Crusade is a spin off TV show from Babylon 5, and very unpopular. It is so bad that only 13 episodes have been produced, and that - although it was fully dubbed, no TV channel in the german area bought it. Here in Austria, you can only buy the small DVD box to be able to watch it. Positive aspect: The box is very small, but contains the full series. :)
I've recieved one copy for xmas, and now have watched the series. My conclusion: It really is bad, nothing compared to Babylon 5. The story is boring, the characters a bit ridiculous. Who had the strange idea to put a thief, a magican, a scientist and a captain into a space ship and create a tv series from that? Strange. At least, the series has a lot of references to B5, and you even get to see two characters from there:
The only exception is the last episode, a strange persiflage of the X-Files series. Two aliens get to the Excalibur, and behave like Mulder and Scully. Even a third alien who works for the alien government later appears, who starts smoking at the end of the episode. Here's a shot of all three of them:
Too bad that B5 ends this way.
