41st Anniversary Rewatch - A1 The Way Back
trevor travis
The episode: Albert One - The Way Back (Carry On Child Molesting)
The date: Tuesday, January 8th, 2019
The time: 7.45pm UK time

In which Roj Blake finds about his past, and virtually everyone is in on the conspiracy.

Episode in a word: Grim.
Character to cheer: Tel Varon.
Character to boo: Morag.
Recognisable Face: Jeremy Wilkin (Dev Tarrant) played a baddie in the Doctor Who serial, Revenge Of The Cybermen. There's LOTS of other people in this who are in other stuff.
Best line: "They didn't give me a choice. I steal things. Compulsive, I'm afraid. I've had my head adjusted by some of the best in the business. But it just won't stay adjusted."

Dev has had enough of Bran's 'Short People' jokes and prepares to take revenge.

In defence of Dev...sort of...he did play a good guy in UFO. Without the limp but with a string vest.

Our hero Wink

Huggy, will we be getting one of these per episode, along with Brad's amusing screen grabs?

Huggy...that so reminds me of Crash Corrigan from the Undersea Kingdom. (A 1930s serial that was on TV back in the day!!!)
He wore a massive helmet and kept hiding behind things...but you could see his helmet!!!!
How the evil baddies never saw him is beyond me...

If you do Trolls only for some episodes it'll be awesome too! Smile

Now, about Dev Tarrant. My first strongest impression of TWB which coloured my perception of the Resistance movement for the whole show was the suggestion at the Rebel meeting to disrupt food production to make population more discontent and rebellious.

That made me very angry. Like, really, you guys thought it a brilliant idea? You didn't think that if you disrupted food production people would be angry at YOU, instead of the government? Not to mention the suffering it would cause to the most vulnerable.

On rewatch I realized it was Dev Tarrant who suggested it. Ok, fair enough, but nobody said - "wait a minute, should we really do that"? Everybody were just clapping their hands like zombies. So I'm still all for ambivalent Blake and moral complexities in Season 2 rather than "yay rebellion"! If you kill people you pay the moral price, and Blake didn't kid himself about it either - "see you in hell" (c) Countdown.

Whew. Let's see if this rewatch makes me feel any different.
 
One Spare Part
The rebels may feel they have no other option. I would target the source of the mind control drugs myself. But perhaps after Blake was caught before, the rebel force was almost utterly destroyed and what we see here are people on their way to becoming rebels with the help of the few surviving old stagers like Bran. Getting Blake back makes more sense then: he has the experience.
"We're in the centre of a mystical convergence here."
 
One Spare Part
P. S. Even if he is rubbish at finding hiding places.

41 years ago, my eldest daughter aged 11 or so months at the time,had my undivided attention...then 2nd Jan 1978 arrived.
Come the evening...
And as for 9th of Jan 1978...
Well, Nikki has never forgiven Mr Nation OR Mr D!
41 years is a hell of a time to hold a grudge GrinAngry

She is just about on speaking terms with her Auntie Julie, as it was Julie who popped over just before Xmas brandishing THAT double issue of the Xmas Radio Times! Oops

Took me a sec to equate that with the reality show rather than 1984, but given B7's Orwellian roots, a clever double entendre.

Just getting ready. I've lost count of just how many times I have now watched this episode.
I wonder, when he was in that BBC room being asked about a new programme to replace Softly, Softly, did Mr Nation think that 41 years later we would be watching the DVD and chatting about it at the same time?

My first rewatch of this episode on Horizon and my 3rd overall. Let's see how it goes this time. On my first watch the resistance meeting reminded me of Life of Brian a lot... Until it was gunned down.

Muted Youtube is fired up and ready.

I am feeling a bit like Holly. Could someone please erase my B7 memory banks so that I can watch it again without knowing everything in advance?
