You should have got it from g2a.

I bet drill rental in Thailand is a faction of that price. Maybe he could check it online and try offering that.

OMG, you guyz are killing me.

Hey Cutter, you can rent a hammer drill in Russia for $10 / day. Why aren't you paying $10? It's a fracking mystery!

It's really sad how many people from Babylon 5 have passed, and not like minor people, but the main actors:

Michael O'Hare (Sinclair)
Richard Biggs (Franklin)
Andreas Katsulas (G'Kar)
Jeff Conaway (Zack)

And now Garibaldi. Makes me sad. Always kind of hoped that there would be some sort of movie with the originals some way, though I think that once Andreas died, my thoughts of any true B5 sequel series kind of diminished, because I can't picture the B5 universe without his presence. His delivery of the Declaration of Principles in S5E3 is amazing.

I know JMS has talked about doing a reboot movie, and recently brought it up again at Comic-Con that he wants to get a few movie projects under his belt that hopefully succeed before he'll be able to get the budget he wants. (Aiming for 100 million, said they could probably get about 65 now.)

B5 curse continues. Very sad. Just finished rewatching the series a couple weeks ago. I didn't much care for Jerry's politics but sometimes listened to his radio show anyway because I liked the dude.

Here's hoping it's a long time before any more of the cast move beyond the rim.

B5 was easily one of, if not the best, sci-fi shows ever made. Certainly it is one of my favorite shows of all time. No other show has the story arc or character complexity of Babylon 5. Such an amazing experience, but you have to get into it from start to finish, and that's the problem I think a lot of people have with it. The first season has to explain a lot so it takes some time to get going. But once it does, oh boy does it ever!

Garibaldi was one of my favorite characters on the show, and seemed like a pretty cool dude overall as well. Sad to see so many from the show go.

Not long ago, I watched this 20th anniversary reunion video. Pretty entertaining and insightful.

There is a more recent one from 2014 that I haven't watched yet:

Some month ago I stumbled on a video which was played on a B5 convention and honored the actors. Was called "Babylon 5 - 20th Anniversary Convention memorial". It felt 75% of the main actors of B5 were dead already:-( A lot of them seemed to die with a young age of around 4x.

B5 is 25 years old on the other hand.
