In any case, the final double-episode is a masterpiece, effortlessly moving over the whole length of the series and pressing all of the right buttons to both celebrate the show, and demonstrate why I loved the characters. Very few shows have had such good endings.
Next up: Deep Space Nine, which I believe I will have to largely suffer through the first couple of seasons, before it Gets Good. I managed that for B5, I can manage for this!
Coincidentally, I haven't read LJ at all this evening, so if something epic or appalling happened to you today I'll find out about it after I get home tomorrow (first meeting at 8:30, visiting a friend after work).
*That mold wouldn't be broken, of course, until Babylon 5 came along, at around the time that Trek was ending, and showed that you could have plots that lasted not just two episodes, but whole seasons, and more.
