The Babylon 5 saga continues in the thrilling series Crusade. In the late 23rd century, humanity has defeated the evil Shadow race. But its allies remain — and they swear revenge. When the mysterious, hateful Drakhs unleash a deadly biogenetic plague on Earth, mankind faces its demise within five years, unless the Rangers — an elite army forged during civilization's darkest hours — can find a cure. Now, in a ceaseless battle against time and the dangers of deep space, the Rangers boldly pursue their mission: to destroy the Drakhs and their alien allies. Diplomacy and negotiation mean nothing. With seven billion lives at stake, action and courage against insurmountable odds must prevail. From acclaimed Babylon 5 executive producer J. Michael Straczynski, the complete Crusade series is available right here on iTunes.

If it's a technical 'brightness' issue I suggest checking your monitor. Otherwise I suggest checking your understanding of production design. Failing those.......dark may just equal 'reality'
a fantastic spin-off of B5!
I love this series and wish it had lasted longer because it had great potential. The only reason it was canceled was because JMS wouldn't sacrifice his vision to appease the network.
What There Is, Is Good... But...
If you're not familiar with this short-lived series, be advised that "Complete Series" means the collection of all episodes that were produced and broadcast. It is certainly not complete in the sense of telling a whole story with all plot threads tied up in a satisfactory fashion. The first season was never actually completed, so it's a bit like reading a novel and finding the last few chapters missing. I'll give this four stars nonetheless because it was a darn fine series, often thought provoking or interesting or funny. The handful of episodes in this collection will leave you wondering what might have been had the show returned better numbers; perhaps, given time, it could've shared the success of the Babylon 5 series that spawned it. Had the numbers been better, it might've at least received a one-movie opportunity to wrap up some plot threads, as happened with Farscape or Firefly. Ratings: the constant enemy of fans of quality science fiction on television. With your expectations now grounded in reality, you'll find much to enjoy in Crusade.
