The final chapter of the Blakes Seven fourplay with an episode that, big surprise, features the title charcter. With their rebel alliance in tatters, like everything in else in series four, Avon plays the last card up his gauntletted sleeve – the location of the legendary Blake.
Trouble is Blake seems to have gone a little Boba Fett, and is hunting down people for the Federation. Is he having a senior moment or has his cheese fallen off the cracker (to quote Tony) Whatever, the consequences are cataclysmic and as Blakes Seven reaches its titanic conclusion tv sci-fi will never be the same.
MMM revisit this epochal episode. Find out why Blake has an eye problem. Why does Scorpio bite the dust? Was this really meant to be IT? (Trev recommends counting blaster bolts).
And how is the final blood bath a family affair? MMM gives you the the alternate view.
BTW Believers that this episode involves the Blake clone will blush at one point!
Trev’s greatest hour, or one of them came with this sensational climax to the third season of Blake’s Seven. End of season cliffhangers had become part and parcel of the show but this is the story that really shook the fans up. Trev was one of those fans and he still shakes today (but that may be the vertical hold).
When Avon takes the Liberator to a secret the location the rest of the crew are puzzled and suspicious. But his final goal shocked everyone. Meanwhile an apparently innocuous space cloud brings a threat that takes the greatest casualty so far. And what has it all to do with Servelan?
MMM follows Trev down memory lane with this return to the land of the Links.
Find out what was in the wind for Servelan and Avon in the future. See if you agree with the team’s description of Avon’s “fatal flaw” and look for 2001 rip offs.
All this plus paint guns, carbonite and enigmatic smiles in the latest chapter of our Blake’s Seven fourplay.
MMM continues the Blake’s Seven end of year sage with STAR ONE.
After a frantic season long search. the Liberator has reached Star One and has victory over the Federation in its grasp. Servalan stages a coup and Blake discovers his goal conceals the greatest secret of all – one that will end the Liberator crew’s unity and maybe the galaxy.
What does this have to do with Daleks you ask? Or shape shifters that choose to resemble pizzas? And what happens to Gareth Thomas and Sally Knyvette?
Find out at MMM as some talk. some text and some rate the two Travis’.
Not recommended for those who believe The Keeper should be seen twice.
MMM returns to the world of Blake’s Seven with the first part of the Blake ahem fourplay. In the 70s and early 80s story arcs were still fairly rare in tv sci-fi but Terry Nation and co were there with thier unfolding sagas and end of year cliffhangers. In ORAC, the disparate Liberator crew find themselves heading to the water planet Aristo( somewhere in the North Sea it looks like) in search of the animal-vegetable-mineral known as ORAC.
Unfortunately Servelan and Travis ( well his feet anyway) are on the same path with the world’s vaguest map. To make matters worse , the crew have come down with radiation poisoning and the ship is about to get a very dire prediction…
Join MMM for this 50-minute milestone in drama and amphibians. Find out what ORAC was MEANT to be, why we only see Travis’ nether regions for the second half and solve Tony’s conundrum: why weren’t Blake’s crew doing the bad thing?
