Heck, I didn't even _like_ the second book, and it pains me to see it mangled this way. I mean, there's no resemblance _whatsoever_. Oh, some settings get recycled, and the character names stay the same, but damn. Let's completely throw the plot out the window, have horrible dialog, worse acting, and special effects that make the first season of B5 look polished.
The first episode did pretty good in following the first book and kinda layering the second into it- but the second episode just went in a completely different direction. Bah.
I'm going to go clean the litterbox and head to bed.
