Best Sci-Fi series ever, dreadful set and effects notwithstanding? Dreadfully under-rated when compared to Star Trek and Bablyon 5? Got the short end of the straw from the BBC when it came to remakes?

I alway liked it, because the writing struck me as being different to American Star Trek - in B7, they're on the run from an all-powerful and corrupt federation, their ship blows up and everyone dies. Eventually.

Plus, it had the best theme tune.

Discuss, please.

yes i love Blakes 7 too, i got series 1-3 on DVD waiting on series 4 to come to DVD which i think was the last series for Blakes 7.

it was great i dont think it ever had 1 bad episode?? like stargate sg1 very good episodes run through entire series.

shame its not been remade into a new series updated it be cool, i did read some while back it was going to be done as TV movies.

at the ending you dont see Avon die so he might of survived???

You're a man of great taste, Mr Blobby!

There was indeed a big move to update the franchise, with Paul Darrow at its head, but unfortunately it died a death. You can see the carcass of the website at:

The company logo was certainly on the box set of series 1 that I bought.

I think it had the coolest ending that *any* sci-fi series has ever had. I nearly choked on my Spag Bol as a 10 year old watching it!

"Star Trek meets Survivor" - 'you're friends are all behind you, so you'd better watch your back'. I must say that I enjoyed Blakes 7.
