A new recruit, and a new blog in progress.

Just started reading and got to this place about Cally and Duel. So happy to have the new blog entry, looking forward to reading the rest!

It's just Avon, I even made a gif of it some time ago. Cally is all gung-ho and for it, which is consistent with her desire to hurt the Federation (plus it's personal with her and Travis too?)

While for Avon it's echoing his sentiment about Sarah in "Mission to Destiny" - he didn't want to enjoy beating her up and he's on same wavelength with Blake here.

Gosh - the memory cheats! Must have been Cally planting messages in my head!
Thanks all.
 
Mrs_Underhill
Glad to be of service. Smile

That was such a great read on Cally whom I love. Indeed, we realized how important she was when she was no longer there: when the crew dynamic and Avon's mental state took a shocking turn for the worse. Elusive but strong presence from her.

Her fading away in the end of S3 could be attributed to depression after what happened in CoA. But I remember one more spark of fight from her in "Moloch", when she told Avon they had an obligation to investigate what Servalan was up to, and Avon replied with chagrin: "Obligation?" - but went along with her push all the same (which often happened in S3).

Loved PP analysis! The striking realization that this show would not have a happy ending - yes, so true.
 
Zonda
That's a nice little example there. It seems to sum up Cally and her impact on the crew - small, understated, little suggestions, that end up having a bigger impact.
Thanks again. T

I always thought Avon shaking his head was him showing that he knew Blake wouldn't kill Travis and also disagreeing with him on this. Showing his greater knowledge of Blake's thinking.

Great analysis of Pressure Point, I couldn't fault your summing up of the episode.

Also a great little article on Cally who is my favourite character, if you couldn't guess. Cally certainly had a great impact during her time on the show and also after her death on Terminal.

With regards to her change in character, I wonder if her hair length had anything to do with it, almost Samson like.

Long hair in Series A - the guerrilla persona
Short hair in Series B - the nurse/caring persona
Shoulder length hair in Series C - the weary, more isolated persona

Anyone know what Jan's hair was like in 1981 to make a guess of what Cally's personality would have been like if Jan had stayed on??? Grin
 
Zonda
Ooo - I like that idea. I might do a blog post on hair length vs impact of character! ;-)

I think that could work for Blake and Avon too.

Blake's hair was big and curly in the early days but as Series B went on it was shorter as he became more fanatical.

Avon's hair was short in the beginning but got bigger over the four series and there have been many discussions about Avon's character development over that period of time!!

Any other characters with changes in hairstyle which could indicate a change in personality? Wink

Soolin had a different style in every episode. The exception that proves the rule?
