40th Anniversary Rewatch - D4 Stardrive
trevor travis
The episode: Derek Four - Stardrive (Carry On Speeding)
The date: Tuesday, October 23rd, 2018
The time: 7.45pm UK time

Starring Paul Darrow, Michael Keating, Steven Pacey, Josette Simon, Glynis Barber, Peter Tuddenham and Peter Tuddenham as Avon’s 7, with Barbara Shelley as “the doomed scientist of the week”.

In which Avon decides to play Murphy’s Law with an Asteroid; Vila saves everyone’s life with his suggestion while pretending to be drunk in a wonderful scene; and Dr Plaxton’s assistant makes the mistake of a badly-timed loo break and misses all the action, but at least he fares better than Dr. Plaxton.

Brilliant!
I'm now back from my hols, and hope to get all the news & Roundup updated tomorrow with this week's rewatches etc. And also hope to join in, if I'm home from work in time.

Afternoon all, long time no rewatching for me, hopefully now I have been moved to a nursing home and got a nice huge 40 inch smart tv, can join in this week as will have to stream it from you tube.
Still bed bound and can only really lean up in bed and lift my right arm up and wiggle my legs, but can type and watch TV so that is good.
Thank you for all the cards and support you have given me over the last few months, and the brilliant video and live feeds from events I can't get to, all make me still part of the B7 fandom family.
Can't wait to join in again on Tuesday.....Smile

I should be able to make this one. I seem to have spent the past few Tuesday afternoons at the local ER with one child or another.

I was appalled by this episode on my first watch, thought it's extremely bad and framed by other bad episodes - it was a trying time, almost gave up on the show.

But on rewatch I realized that I liked it a lot! Actually I loved everything about it except Space Rats - yep they're still appalling and just godawful bad and dull.

I loved the tense beginning and Avon's desperation as he had no other way but to try their luck and it failed him. Loved Vila's cunning. I even loved endless repetitious scenes with Avon and Co trekking through the quarry and posing for dramatic shots every few seconds - because Avon's hair looked so much better mussed and I at least could enjoy the sight of him. Smile Loved the tense ending too.

On my first watch I was shocked by Avon's coldness and him being such a dick. On rewatch I saw his anguish and desperation of having to do those things. Damn he almost cried after failure with that asteroid! And it really seemed there was no other way for them to get that fuel, so he had to take that risk or be grounded and wait for Pelene-50 to catch up with them.

It is quite bouffant for this episode... sadly the fashions of the time don't always wear well. Could be worse though - they could have put Avon in a space pirate mohican instead!!

For a change I will be actually watching the episode tonight. However I am not good at watching and posting so I may just read all your comments!

Evening all, my muted Youtube is ready and on a standby!

Funny how I just thought that even Space Rat mohawk would look better on him than that combed monstrosity!
But it gets so much better after wind ruffles it Smile

At the time it was 1st shown I couldn't deal with Avon's "turn for the worse" and he only gets worserer! I tried really hard to find excuses for what he was doing. I was personally involved! But you know what is worse? The rest of the crew let him get on with it. Only Vila speaks up.
