Who else loves Blake's 7 I watch episode one the other day and it was just like I remembered it, the show may have had bad SFX  and no budget but I enjoyed it a lot and Avon is one of the best anti heroes ever. :yes: :yes: :yes:

I use to watch the Blake 7 reruns, been a while. I think I have it on my love film list to watch it again. You really can't beat Avon as an anti-hero. You hate him and love him the whole way through.

Who's Blake 7? Some kind of TV show?

I have to admit I have never heard of Blake 7. Now if you want to talk classic Sci fi how about Logans Run, or even Blade Runner. You can go back even farther of course to the old drive in movies from the 50's. Which were all low budget but still are fun to watch.

My oldest memories of classic Sci-fi are Lost In Space and The Twilight Zone, both for me at that time wonderful shows.

Blake's 7 was a British series that was shown in the US after it was canceled in the UK.

I'm with Marilyn. Star Trek, The Twilight Zone and Lost in Space. Wasn't all that much in SF in the Sixties and Seventies.

NO there wasn't unless you could some of the movies. Fortunately it made a comeback.
