Minbari Mondays, Confessions and Lamentations, and, “Faith Manages”

      This this week, there is no report from Ranger Mayann.  The Great Machine on Epsilon 3 still has a problem, Houston…

    So, my again short review  this week is that similarity is NOT “required for the exercise of compassion.” 


      Thanks to Delenn for that point.

       This episode frighteningly points up the importance of Universal Health Care.

      Neatnik and  The Junkyard give more traditional plot and character perspectives of this episode.


Last week’s review was of the season 2, episode In the Shadow of Z’ha’dum,

Next week’s review will be Divided Loyalties

Stayed on Freedom’s Call
(free: https://archive.org/details/StayedOnF…)
includes two ‘imagination-rich’ walking tours, with songs, of Washington, DC. New interviews and research are woven into stories of old struggles shared by both the Jewish and African-American communities in the capital city.

Shared histories are explored from a new perspective of cultural parallels and parallel institution-building which brought the two communities together culturally and historically.

Please leave a review, if you can, on the GoodReads page.

        1. Ah. I was with a devout friend in London my first viewing of this, and I think that helped to lighten the blow of this episode. It is quite intense.

          I am very glad that JMS was able to get this episode into the series in this way.
