Well, seeing as my first try was a fictional future Duke from another planet.

Actually it was the war crimes that turned me off, but just about everyone else in The Expanse is so fucked up that she and Amos are like islands of sanity, and she starts off torturing a Belter and Amos is a clinical psychopath.

The torture scene with her and someone from the outer solar system was one of the things that turned me off of a series I may have otherwise wound up watching.

Since fictional personages are allowed, both of my picks are from the same 90's series: Captain John Sheridan or Delenn of Mir.

For Canada - Jack Layton (RIP) I wish he were still around.

For the UK - Jeremy Corbyn .

For the U.S.? Why not Oprah? I know she's in the entertainment business, etc., but after Trump and everything he and his ilk represent, why the hell not.

Mir is the particular Religious Caste clan/family she was born to, part of the Tenth Fane of Elleya and one of the oldest clans, able to trace their roots back to Valen.

Oh no, the series wasn't one of my favorites ... not at ALL ....

Who was Sinclair of course.

I am guessing another person who has the DVDs of the series (plus the movies and Crusade) and wishing there had been blu-rays instead?

That was a rather amusing and lovely plot twist they pulled with Sinclair.

Planning on getting the DVDs actually. Watched the living hell out of it while the series was still televised/in rerunes (while I still had cable) and rather happy that the main series is up for streaming (see the TV section, Nobody Cares for the link).

But otherwise yes.

Interestingly the information on the current crop of the DVDs has them listed as being 1080 (ddidn't specify if that was i or p though) - which is what Verizon Media used to source the series to put up on go90.

I need to do a mega-marathon of B5 again soon now that I have a new TV. The old one was a tube tv that was on its last legs so dark scenes would render as black next to black with a black background.

BTW, good news for you. All you have to do is move to Russia and your wish for him to be the leader will be granted. Please do so.

Which is all that we need (as if nothing else did it) to show trumpies do not have the courage of their convictions. Unless they got banned on a previous trip to Russia for some reason. Even so, there are a few other countries where putin holds considerable influence if not the outright leader.

Most countries even have ex-pat communities (with some percentage of natives in cities knowing english for at least the tourists) so you probably do not even need to know much of the local language at first. Even the argument 'I can not afford a ticket' will not work as I am guessing there are precisely 0 gofundmes for this cause.
