The first season B7 was very Orwellian. The vast majority of Fed citizens and officials had no idea they lived in and worked for a totalitarian state. The Administration went to great lengths to give the appearance of stern benevolence, thus Blake's sham of a trial. I'm willing to bet the only corrupted people in the court were Alta Morag, Vynn Glynn, and Dev Tarrant (no relation). Resistance on Earth was ineffective not just e because of the drugs, but because most people simply didn't believe there was anything to resist, and saw resisters as criminals.

The same can be seen on Horizon. A lot of time and effort went into convincing Ro that the Federation way was the best way, and only punished those who deserved it.

It's really only after Servalan takes over that the fascists come out of the closet.

Its all about controlling information, if you have a monopoly on the information that people receive backed up with an overwhelming military with the backup of suppressants there isn't much the honest citizen can do even a disgruntled one.

This episode is very much of its time and sits comfortably? along other dark sci-fi (films and TV) which many of us enjoy as well.

I prefer the darker more political season A (there are a few weaker episodes though) to the space opera B7 became in later seasons.

A reminder that this rewatch takes place at 7.45pm UK time tonight.

Just getting ready. Tea, Biccies some choccie...and deep heat for my foot. I tripped over Sir's laptop last night. I have arthritis in the joints of my toes and it is really hurting now...maybe a glass of wine might soothe it?Grin

Aw, poor Littlesue! Have you ever tried an Onion Pack? It is very useful when you have arthritis:
Wrap a large onion in metal foil and bake it until soft. Pulp the onion in its juice and spread it over the joint area. Cover with plastic or cloth and keep warm for an hour with a hot-water bottle. Repeat as required.

Evening all! Oops

Getting ready for another try now. Hopefully not to be kicked off.
I have invited a certain clever and nice computer genius to keep an eye on the internet routes.

So that's why he is not in this episode!
