Default Re-imagined....

"ORAC, gimme a frakkin' sitrep, STAT!" growled Blake through clenched teeth as she squinted down the sights of the pulse rifle. "C'mon, you slimy Zarrmin Death Pod, gimme one clear shot....."

"I detect severe emotional imbalance, Roj - your adrenalin levels are dangerously high", whispered ORAC, as he knelt close to her in the gloom of the wrecked Trajector.

(Opening scene, Episode One - "Avon Calling" in the miniseries "Seven of Blake").

Hopefully not,

Patrick

Though I'd love to see a new series of Blake's 7, it's never going to really happen is it? SyFy /Microsoft or whoever. Still no casting / production news or anything. Same with Space 2099 and the UFO movie. At least we know there will be the new 'Thunderbirds are Go' in 2015 to look forward to.

Default Pandora's Box?

O, what tangled webs we weave...already starting to sound not a little like 1999-related thread elsewhere. Do love the sheer depth of creativity of this place! (heh-heh) As a good friend of mine likes to say, "Oh well!" *sigh*

To Patrick: Happy Birthday! (one of the few tunes I have enough range to whistle! )

To yorkie: Here's hoping that new series will indeed do right by the Tracy boys (they deserve the best!). Time will tell...

In the meantime, guess us fan-fic types'll just have to keep busy...

That's not unusual for Syfy: they want to hide how crap what they are doing is until the last moment.

I can see it now. Ghost Shark versus the Liberator. Featuring the most popular wrestler at the time as Roj Blake.

Looks like a new series of Blake's 7 is a no go (again).

Im happy that they are not making it purely because they would not do it justice. If somehow the right cast and crew got together and redesigned what needed to be redesigned and made a remake/sequel with complete respect for the original id be a happy camper

Indeed!!

I too would be happy with a new series of some sort, provided it was handled sympathetically and it "paid its respects" to the original series.

I wouldn't trust any of the US studios to do it right.
