I think if anything you are gonna end up with more anime next time given you you made a big deal about 'I hate anime so don't nominate it' and then proceeded to rank the one anime episode you got the highest (thus far) of the animated episodes.

I said that I would likely have the least to say about anime which would make the topic less fun.

Babylon 5 - "Confessions and Lamentations"
Nominated by: CybrMonkey

This is probably one of the biggest failures in the history of television.

Of course, I mean that, narratively, Sheridan and his crew (and by the way, Bruce Boxleitner will forever be awesome) completely fail to prevent a galaxy-wide pandemic from wiping a race out of existence. The ending strikes me as particularly infuriating (in a good way) - after two billion beings are snuffed out, a bartender comments with one of those terrible racist one-liners before carrying on with his day. I think that joke has aged particularly well in the current climate, really sliding under my skin and irritating me to no end. Great, great stuff.

As I remember, the Markab had been established on Babylon 5 prior to this episode. Not a lot, mind you - if this had been made in the era of Game of Thrones, we would be seeing two or three main characters bite it alongside our episode's newest one-off characters. But in the world of Babylon 5, we're still transitioning out of the episodic structure of Next Generation. This transitional period of TV is very unique. Stories like this one can be self-contained but still carry a real weight of impact. It's unique.

The episode is very heavy, but in fact the best scene comes early on, as Delenn and Sheridan share a din. (Ner) The cultural differences are so heavy-handed and ludicrous that you can't help but wonder whether Delenn is trolling Sheridan or being truthful. The result is seeing a grounded leader thrown totally off-balance. Great stuff.

Overall, I wouldn't say this is my favorite episode of the series, but it definitely is an off-beat, unusual episode with a strange tone. The pacing is bizarre but still enjoyable. Everything just has a unique feeling that I don't think the series really duplicates ever again.

Writing: 9/10
Characterization: 6/10
Scarlet Factor: 8/10
Overall: 23/30

I'm interested in recommending some stuff, I missed the last one!

My goals for my choice:

- It's personally really special to me
- the episode is relatively standalone
- Scarlet hasn't seen it
- anime

I'm gonna be so mad when he gives it a bad review. Maybe i should just start getting mad now.

to be fair it's an incredible objective

I'm actually looking forward to the end of this run so I can see what the next 100 nominations will look like. As long as there's not a ton of animation, it should be fun.

It's kind of live action so it counts

I would definitely not allow Blue's Clues. Most children's shows of that nature wouldn't be included.

You really shouldn't try and nominate a lot of things you know I definitely will hate. That's how this project got sidetracked for months last time. I don't know why people would just want to see a project fail.
