Season 5 ranged from ok to awful (until the Sleeping in Light finale)
Legend of the Rangers was cringeworthy
Crusade was passable at best
Lost Tales (or was it Forgotten Tales?) was meh

It doesn't give me great hope. Has he done any TV or movies since B5?

The biggest thing that he has been involved with is the dispensation of the Harlan Ellison estate following that author's death. This includes the publication of The Last Dangerous Visions.

I think you could make the case that Crusade was cancelled before it got a chance to hit its stride. There were scripts floating around for two or three episodes that never got filmed, and they had some major reveals in them. As with B5, the initial setup was intended to launch the series, and then be superseded by the real central plot, which would have begun around Season 2. Season 1 was supposed to end with an assassination attempt on Matthew Gideon on Mars. Not sure if it was supposed to be successful or not. And the "save the Earth" storyline would be over by the second season.
