    Babylon 5 - Series issues....

    Been rewatching Babylon 5 and introducing it to others and noticed a few frustrating issues.

    Ignoring, though confused by, the non-skippable opening credits not taking up the entire frame (not sure why this is and it is annoying) there are more annoying issues to those of us trying to watch the show.

    The 1993 aired Pilot episode "The Gathering", is thankfully included in Season 1, but it is marked as episode 101. It should be episode 0 (zero) as it is important to the plot not just a bonus feature and takes place before the 1994 season.

    Season 3, episode 3: "A Day in the Strife", for some unknown reason continues after the episode ends. It restarts the episode without audio and runs for several minutes. The credits end at 43m 37s. From 0:43:38-0:47:21 it plays, without audio, the start of the episode. Yes it is only 3 minutes and 44 seconds, but you need to fastward through it to move to the next episode without it being stuck in your continue watching (another annoying issue but with the service not just the show and not likely to ever be resolved).

    Season 3, Episode 15: "Interludes and Examinations", oddly has a full minute of black screen with no audio before the episode starts. At first we thought something was wrong until we were able to use scene selection or fast forward to the show, but makes it annoying to watch.

    There might be other issues (other than this seems to be the SD quality not the remastered Blu-ray quality I have seen), but I am only in the middle of Season 3 in my watching and report others as I notice them.

    Just checking to see if these mentioned episode errors were fixed before I consider a purchase of these episodes. I can see by the run times for the Season 1 episode "Babylon Squared" and the Season 4 episode "The Hour of the Wolf" that Vudu still appears to have the initial versions of those episodes with about 2 minutes of footage missing. Other services have fixed versions of those episodes, so hopefully Vudu can get the proper versions of all four of these episodes in place before the current complete series sale ends.
