[show]Crusade creator J. Michael Straczynski's recommended episode viewing order is as follows: Racing the Night, The Needs of Earth, The Memory of War, The Long Road, Visitors from Down the Street, The Well of Forever, Each Night I Dream of Home, Patterns of the Soul, The Path of Sorrows, Ruling from the Tomb, The Rules of the Game, War Zone, Appearances and Other Deceits. However, because of dialog looping during post-production and costume changes mid-season this viewing order will introduce minor continuity errors.
