When I was a teenager, one of my favourite shows was Blake's 7
. My friend George and I would get together and watch the show and discuss the plots and characters. For me, growing up in Australia, I much preferred the British SF shows to the American ones. Dr. Who, Blake's 7
, The Day of the Triffids
were more 'realistic' when compared to the plastic-looking Battlestar Galactica
or Buck Rogers.
And now Syfy has announced plans to re-invent Blake's 7
. The director is supposedly the same director from Casino Royale
, which is cool, but the writer's credentials include CSI
which somewhat concerns me.
As The Guardian
states, "If Syfy get Blake's 7 right, it could be great. That doesn't stop the law of averages meaning it will probably be awful."
