can you explain trouble with which actors?
I know WB wanted to replace Michael O'Hare with a more well known TV actor and JMS was forced to consent in order to get a second season. is this what you mean.
I think B5's big flaw was JMS being forced to rush the war with Earth to its conclusion in season 4 (again WB). he meant for it to carry on in seaon 5. instead we got the awful tracey scoggins - seriously wtf????
