I remember watching this TV show in the 90's set aboard a space station. It featured an eccentric cast of characters including a security guard reminiscent of Bruce Willis, an alien with abnormal hair, and an alien with an abnormal head. The special effects looked like they came from a video game of the time. Can anyone help me identify this show?

    As Mike mentioned, this was Babylon 5. It is one of greatest pieces of science fiction every created for television and far too many people missed out on it because it ran in syndication at often odd hours of the day or night. – BBlake Oct 18 '12 at 18:49

    I literally expected the punchline question about time traveling robots in this one. – Goran Jovic Oct 18 '12 at 19:02

    Why do people go to all the trouble of reopening and editing this question, when it was clear from the start that the OP has no intention of contributing anything meaningful to this site. My advice is to roll back the edit and close and/or delete it for good. – Mr Lister Oct 19 '12 at 8:11

    @MrLister: Maybe SE is more than a means to ask a question. It's also a means to discover that your question has already been asked and answered. Thus, a good question has worth that exceeds the needs of the original asker. – sbi Oct 20 '12 at 20:45

    There's no way I could have answered this.... – AncientSwordRage Nov 7 '12 at 20:17

That's certainly Babylon 5. Although I always thought that Jerry Doyle looked more like Bruce Willis than Bruce Willis himself did.

    Jerry Doyle is the ultimate Bruce Willis, and far better than Bruce himself. – BBlake Oct 18 '12 at 18:47

    There's an episode of Moonlighting where they break the 4th wall and Jerry Doyle is among a group of actors auditioning for Bruce Willis' part in Moonlighting. – Sam Hasler Oct 24 '12 at 10:47

Couldn't have been 'Space Precinct', maybe?

    Could you be more descriptive - what was the show about, how well does it match with what's in the question, etc? As it is, just throwing a name out there barely answers the question... – Izkata Jul 28 '13 at 18:54
  • Well, there have been plenty of people suggesting Babylon 5 and the OP hasn't risen to saying any of them are correct, so it figures OP is either A; Lazy, B; hasn't been back or C; it's not Babylon 5. The only other show I can think of from that time period, roughly that description is 'Space Precinct', of which a quick IMDB will give the OP the option of checking. I didn't want to extrapolate an unnecessarily long winded explanation to an OP that might not even be interested anymore, when a quick sentence gives them the option to look for themselves. Sometimes brevity is preferable. – John Smith Optional Jul 28 '13 at 21:14

    Sometimes you just have to work for it. You were compelled enought to answer, but not committed enough to do so completely? – wbogacz Jul 28 '13 at 21:22
  • @wbogacz: exactly that, yes. I could have possibly included an IMDB link, but other than that there is little to add that wouldn't just be inflation. I had a kernel of an idea, and disclosed it. – John Smith Optional Jul 29 '13 at 9:33

    @JohnSmithOptional If you click on the OP's profile, you can see that they never came back. While it certainly helps to provide suggestions, for story-ID questions, some sort of description of why an answer is a possible match is generally expected. – Beofett Jul 29 '13 at 19:56
