First, a gripe about the title. There surely could have been many things they could have called this rather than picking the same name as an episode from the original TV series. Fair enough, if this had been a remake of that episode, but it wasn't. So, bad choice of title in my opinion.

What we hear from Servalan and Travis in this episode suggests that they are settling into their roles a lot more, which is good. In fact, the whole crew seemed more comfortable with their roles than the first episode. Or maybe that's just me getting used to them.

I particularly liked Avon and Zen's sparring, and the whole induction to Zen at the start - up until a bout 20 minutes in - was a lot darker than in the original series, and I thought better as a result.

Sadly, I thought it faded away a bit after that. There was a fairly weak adventure they had to deal with which seemed to be serving little more purpose than establishing a few things about the crew and the ship. Mezin's conversion seemed a tad unbelievable.

There was a nice surprise near the end, which I think will have to be resolved in episode three, so something to look forward to, but I think overall they will have to do better than this to win over many of the B7 fans.

Not heard this one yet! BTW, I like the idea of including comments on these audios in the episode section of the forum.

Any chance of shrinking the URL in your sig somehow cos it stretches the thread and I have to scroll sideways to read everything?

No worries, I'll take it out for the time being.
