#FreeBabylon5!!

Show Creator J. Michael Straczynski said it best:

"Because Babylon 5 isn't on the air in the US anywhere, it's impossible for the show to add new viewers except one at a time, friend to friend, or if you've heard about it enough to want to shell out the money for the DVDs. Casual viewers can't stumble across it while channel surfing. (As we all know, after Trek was canceled for poor ratings, it found its audience in syndication.) So either WB has to be convinced to release the show somewhere, or a network like Syfy or Chiller or another along those lines has to be prompted to pick it up. If not, quite honestly, and without any way to add new viewers, the show will eventually slide into obscurity. This ain't something I can do, or even directly participate in. It's up to the fans now."

Already the campaign has been successful as the UK channel WATCH has begun running Babylon 5 and credits the #FreeBabylon5 campaign as the impetus to bring it back.  http://http//www.youtube.com/watch?v=F4OKwsnYhkU&feature=youtu.be

Now we need to continue the campaign and bring Babylon 5 to as many channels and venues as possible by writing letters, emailing, posting on forums, tweeting and getting loud to let Warner Bros. and the world know that we want Babylon 5 back on the air where the fan base can grow in the eventual hopes that the universe might come back in some form. 



  • Thank You!

    Dear wonderful supporters,

    Just wanted to let you know how very much your support of this Thunderclap and the Free Babylon 5 campaign is appreciated.  It was a resounding success with 191,470 people reached. 

    Now that all of your friends and contacts know that you support Babylon 5 coming back on the air in reruns, please urge them to join you in contacting Warner Bros. and any TV stations that might be receptive to ask them to make Babylon 5 available to potential new fans.

    Many thanks again,

    #FreeBabylon5

I've been a fan of Babylon 5 since the first episode aired and I hate the thought of it sliding into obscurity or just becoming a nerdy punchline. Babylon 5 is as relevant today as it was in the mid-90s and should be available for new fans to discover it. #FreeBabylon5!
