Episode 22: Z'Ha'Dum PATCHED
The pilot film premiered on February 22, 1993. The regular series aired from January 26, 1994, and ran for five full seasons. Due to Warner corporate structure and policy concerning syndication in general, and syndication of properties produced by the defunct PTEN division in particular, the show has been syndicated only briefly, and did not appear on U.S. television from 2003 through 2018 (though it has aired in other countries). In 2018, the show began airing nightly on the Comet TV Sci-Fi Network. The show spawned six television films and a spin-off series, Crusade, which aired in 1999 and ran for 13 episodes. On July 31, 2007, a DVD was released containing two short films about selected characters from the series.
Episode 22: Z'Ha'Dum
Some episodes in the second season were aired out of their intended chronological sequence. Straczynski confirmed that in Season 2, "A Race Through Dark Places" should precede "Soul Mates," and that "Knives" should precede "In the Shadow of Z'ha'dum."
All five seasons of the 1994-1998 show, Babylon 5, are currently streaming on HBO Max but everything will leave on January 25, 2023. So, how do you get the basics of the show before then? While B5 is intended to be watched all the way through, from start to finish, there is an unholy hack. The following are just five episodes of Babylon 5 which, when watched in order, will give you the broad strokes of the entire show, and create the illusion of having watched the whole thing.
Perhaps the most satisfying and delightful moments in the entirety of Babylon 5 comes exactly at its center. Putting this episode on the list as a single episode is a bit of a cheat since it is a two-parter. But, if you really wanted to you, could just watch Part 2 and get the basic gist.
The rest of the episode plays out as one big long crescendo. Sheridan gets to debate the merits of progress through conflict, as opposed to progress through peace. There are several twists, which all culminate in one of the best sci-fi TV season finales of all time. If Babylon 5 has one defining, epic badass moment, it's right here. (Bonus, this episode was directed by Adam Nimoy, son of Leonard Nimoy! Really!)
The world that G'Kar is seen fleeing from is indeed Z'ha'dum, as you can see from the visual below depicting the two worlds side-by-side (from the episodes B5: Revelations and B5: Z'ha'dum). Technically he didn't actually go there, he merely jumped in, had a look-see and jumped back out again.
