Well, it was either jump or get vaporized....

In that sense, as someone else once pointed out, Sheridan is a
hero in the Heinleinian tradition. He does the logical thing, whatever
that is, to survive. "Okay, I'm about to get vaporized...but if that
hole is several miles deep, it might shield me and keep me alive for
another 10 seconds. Yes, there's the *splat* at the end problem, but
I'll have 10 seconds in which to figure out that problem...."

Well, given that Garibaldi is any number of light years away at
the moment at which Sheridan is dropping, I'd say any attempt to arrive
before Sheridan would hit bottom would be less than useless.

Well, if you hadn't spoiled yourself, you could enjoy new
episodes NOW with the rest of the country, starting this week, but
noooooo, you had to go and jump the gun, well you've made your bed,
young man, now you have to sleep in it.

And there are shadows underneath it.

Sleep tight.

They're silent.

That's what makes them so scary.

If you hear them, you're fine, but if you hear *nothing*....

{original post had no questions}

I think WB does something to the tapes during the transfer in
which they insert the commercials that degrades the sound quality
slightly.
