In the last two days I have posted a couple of bits on the old BBC1 science-fiction television series Blake's 7...
THE CULT OF BLAKE'S 7 - BBC 4
PAUL DARROW ON KTEH TELEVISION - 1987
Here's something I discovered recently but had forgotten to address...
Blake's 7 returns to TV screens
Cult BBC sci-fi series Blake's 7, dubbed 'The Dirty Dozen in space', is being re-made by Syfy Channel.
While Martin Chilton, Culture Editor (online) for The Telegraph, does a fine job of giving a little makeup and history on Blake's 7, the second paragraph in, where he embeds a quote from the new producers, 'worries' me...
'A 13-part series, described as a "revolutionary reinvention" of the original, is being developed by FremantleMedia International and US cable network Syfy...'
"Revolutionary reinvention"? That is bold. Most shows are crap, and a crap-shoot at best, so to state arrogantly something as being revolutionary is plain nuts. And a bad omen.
"I have a bad feeling about this."
A smart fan today knows to not bother holding his breath.
Siffy?! Oh, no....
