I have not watched along with an episode of Blakes 7 here before. When I was a student we would watch one on a Sunday morning. It is an interesting feeling.

I have the DVD in and confess to thinking of opening a bottle of red wine and having a glass. Although I should have opened it an hour ago really. The Sun is going down but the sky is blue where I am with barely a cloud in sight. :-)

Cold.....you don't know the meaning of cold.
Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of the window!!!

Tiny muted Youtube will do for me today. Will try to participate as much as I can, as I love this episode!

This basically sums up the episode for me. Smile This trio was fantastic in their interplay.

Avon is at his most visceral here, like in Spacefall. Vila cuts the tension and is insightful. The whole life-death-animal instincts and fears theme is mental. The plot with the plague is gripping. One of my favorite episodes from Season 2.

I agree with you but will add that Ronald Lacey holds his own against the Avon-Vila double act. You have to watch him as well. Quality actor.

Hullo all, I missed last week due to Eurovision so I'm happy to be here tonight - it's anyone's guess whether it'll be less camp though!!!

I can't see how even Eurovision can beat *that*. Smile
From costumes to the Avon-Tynus-Vila triple act, it's camp off the scale!

Also all you brave folks with food and drink prepared for this episode: I salute your bravery! I won't be touching food after the plague hits. Smile

I have mixed feelings about this episode. It was filmed at Oldbury Power Station so I always like to see those bits. But the science is a bit naff. So I will probably pop in but not post to avoid offence!!

I have often wondered when watching some SF and episodes of B7 like this whether scientists can suspend belief. Go on Lorna be savage! Grin


It depends. Usually if I am enjoying the story I can roll with the dodgy science. But the episode of The Flash where they made 500 proof alcohol made me twitch. I'm a chemist; I know full well that 500 proof is physically impossible, twitch Smile

It's triple act, not double act for me. All three are fantastic, yes! Tynus makes a lasting impression indeed!

And - time to start.
