    Blake's 7 ... .going to re-watch them all

    Anyone ever watch that old British shoiw "Blake's 7" ? I watched these old episodes a couple times through (maybe 3) .... I really like the show even (and maybe partly because of ) with it's somewhat "Doctor Who"-ish budget!


    I's a dystopian view with a corrupt controlling government and Blake and gang are renegades fighting against this corrupt order.

    I didn't detect a strand of anti-Nazi propaganda in the show (which was totally refreshing .... I'm tired of that BS) although oddly enough a main character on the corrupt Federation side had this strange Isreali Star of David symbol on him which I thought was quite interesting LOL

    Roj Blake originally (having been brainwashed by machine) was totally unaware of his past life...

    haha ... I just had to comment of someone's post on that clip


    Fascism was in Italy and Mussolini sure did clamp down on organised crime and the Mafia for sure. Oddly enough when the United States got involved and Mussolini was destroyed, the prisons were opened once again ... "Freedom and Democracy" (usually at the end of many bombs) even for corrupt criminals who cause ill will to society. I think what most people mean when they say "Fascism" is the National Socialism of Germany(I'm kind of sure they are unaware of the Fascia ax symbols within the US government LOL) at the time which was not Fascism. However if ignorant and brainwashed people do not wish to ponder or cannot overcome their brainwashing and look at those times and events (ie, World War I and aftermath ... 1930's and into World War II) in an unbiased way, they will merely be mislead by biased Hollywood movies and winners' propaganda. Germany had huge amounts of land stolen and given the the newly formed Czechoslovakia (ie, Czechs and Slaves grouped together .... good idea for a new nation ) and Poland. Millions of ethnic Germans were now stuck inside foreign nations. If you look at the history of Bolshevik communism threatening to overcome Germany after World War I, you will see a determined effort by veterans to force that out! And you will see the seeds of what will become National Socialism to safeguard Germany from this threat! Of course an honest view would also see the large percentage of Jewish men within the Bolshevik threat and Jewish men within banking and mass media but of course that is a taboo to even ponder (soon to be illegal I imagine!) . This kind of thing is covered up by the corrupt media we have today. If people can't and won't honestly look at real history, then they are as blind and misguided as the population drugged and brainwashed by the Terran Federation within this show. The Terran Federation is not the Fascists or National Socialists .... they are us now ~ corrupted so-called "Democracy" (LOL) where you can have a father and son Bush as president and then a husband and wife almost as president .... only instead we got another Zionist suck-up Trump .... rich guy who has no clue what it is like to fear being evicted out of your apartment every month or lack enough money to buy food or glasses or pay for transportation .... another rich elite (this is everyone since Reagan was shot)! Or what our system will lead to! Corrupt elites who distort, lie and cause wars based on lies against the Arab nations for the last 18 years (oh they just have to get those darned nations to have central bajks that are part of the web of control)! They are the problem. They are the liars! And yet most people are so brainwashed by their wealthy-owned media that they do not even have a clue about this! They don't even need drugs in our social order (although I question if these "preservatives" maybe have that side-effect lol

    Awww yes!!


    The way the authorities would get to Blake was to charge him with sex crimes against children! How like our modern world might want to discredit someone by publishing that in their tabloids..... er ... I mean "authentic newspapers".

    Wow this show did have a lot to reveal about how things really work within corrupt societies.

    Yeah, but did they not go a step further by implanting those children with false memories? At least from what I have heard when watching a review of that episode, have not seen this show myself (yet).
    The sense of honor is of so fine and delicate a nature that
    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.

    I imagine that was implied ... the three children all missed school attendance the day before the alleged crime .... the investigator and his girlfriend/wife who was defending Blake saw that in the records but the guard who looked up the info reported them and they ended up dead .... an accident of course.


    Anyway, I'm past that and they've now gotten out of the transport ship into the 'Liberator'.

    I love the interaction of these characters .... Avon and Blake are mostly at odds about the purpose for doing anything (ie, morels vs money LOL).

    Some of it seems like a take on Robin Hood with the big guy Gan as Little John (maybe I'm projecting into this). This whole similar character group was also basically found in the Japanese anime Gatchaman so maybe it's just basically a common thing LOL


    Anyway, I've watched this series a couple times through so I really like the show although I think the Doctor Who of the time had a bigger scarf budget ;-) LOL

    Josette Simon, who played the role of Dayna Mellanby, lived just a few hundred yards away from me in Leicester for while. I was in her brother's class at school.

    I never heard of Blake's 7 outside of this thread. I've heard of Doctor Who.

    Glad you found a tv show you like, Ravenrune.

    I recently discovered "The Office" (American version) on tv. It comes on at 10pm thru midnight, every night except Saturday. Four episodes, a half hour each episode.

    It airs on the Cozi TV channel. http://www.cozitv.com/
