Crusade – The Long Road

As something of a treat, I thought this hugely enjoyable episode of the Babylon 5 spin-off Crusade might brighten up yet another dull and dreary November evening.

So, here we have The Long Road, featuring father and son (in real life) Edward and Peter Woodward – the latter in his permanent role in the series of Galen – playing a pair of one-time Technomages who know each other very well.

There are the customary serious messages in among the fun and the occasional golden dragon, but overall it's a comparatively light-hearted episode. Note in particular how the long-experienced Edward handles the material: he has a master's touch, and it shows very clearly here, though only if one actively studies the performance. Not for the first viewing, which should be fun, but a repeat viewing should make it almost jump out at anyone who watches for such things...
