so after some comments about a new Blakes 7 were mentioned and personally having never heard of the show I did a quick look on Youtube and found that several episodes are up.
I've watched 8 so far and I've got to say the show is really good, it's an example of a show that shines despite the limited budget that plagues it and it's age.
space battles are tense not because we see "splosions" but because of simple camera tricks and great dialogue, minor effects go a long way and the characters are what really shine, the plots are more complex than Star Trek of old.
really entertaining show to watch.
sadly and as usual the entertainment industry isn't really willing to sell the show and instead is demanding too much for it ..... while a great show, it's old and shows it which should be reflected in the price as well.
I'm sure the fanboys will pay whatever but if fanboys mattered then AMD stock would be $10 per share and not $2, the latter Star Wars prequels would have done 5X more at the box office and the 3d editions 20X better than they did, instead while they did make a profit the hopes were for Titanic style profits which they never came close to getting.
Blakes 7 is worth $10 per season, $30-$35 for the set preferably in a bargain bin at the grocery store, not because it's a bad show at it's core but because it's so brutally outdated and their is nothing onscreen to justify the extra cost, instead they want $30+ per season $140+ for the set.
When we lose the right to be different, we lose the privilege to be free.
