Blakes 7 DVD rewatch blog

Episode 1 of 52 and our space voyage begins with an episode full of murder, lies and trouble. And lots of dull-looking costumes. The journey begins!

Blake starts to arrange his 'crew' and The Liberator is discovered, and named by Jenna's subconscious (or something) while Avon and Vila begin their bickering.

Jenna gets changed and plots with Avon to abandon Blake after they discover lots of jewellry or something, while Blake himself teleports for the first time in order to 'proper acting' with Brian Blessed, before rescuing new crew members Gan and Vila.

Season 1 Episode 4: Time Squad - Enter Cally the telepath. Hmm

Cally arrives and communicates via telepathy, which at first looks like an awful editing mistake, while later she runs around with Vila, Blake and Avon - and Vila's carrying a cool box.

Series 1 Episode 5: The Web - a moral dilemma with an easy solution
Cally and Jenna get taken over by a spooky force that penetrates the Liberator, in a bad way, while Blake makes a moral judgement over a bunch of squeaky-voiced creatures called Decimas who like a bit of rampage and violence.

Season 1 Episode 6 - Seek-Locate-Destroy: Enter Servalan and Travis, straight from a fetish club
Blake's arch-nemesis Travis arrives, as does the Federation's Supreme Commander Servalan, and together they give the programme an additional, and very stylishly-dressed, kick in the right direction.
