41st Anniversary Rewatch - B2 Shadow
trevor travis
The episode: Barney Two - Shadow (Carry On Space Mafia)
The date: Tuesday, April 16th, 2019
The time: 7.45pm UK time

In which there’s so much going on in a terrific episode. The major two plot strands are Blake finding himself on the wrong side of morality and not giving a jot about it; and a malign influence taking over Orac. While this is going on, Vila has the thrill and hangover of a lifetime, and will be lucky to finish the episode with his teeth intact and not part of a necklace.

Episode in a word: Moon-discs!
Characters to cheer: Gan, for showing that he has a conscious and there are levels he would prefer not to stoop to, such as getting caught up with the Space Mafia. Of course, Blake dismisses his arguments and pushes on regardless. In some ways, it’s a precursor of what happens again in three episodes’ time, this time with tragic consequences. Oh, and also Cally, for regaining much of her original spirit here – especially when she holds Space City to ransom to free the others. It’s great to see these two characters given something a bit more meaty to do, at last. Bravo Chris Boucher!
Character to boo: Sorry, Vila, while I think you’re terrific, this is not your finest hour – the blame for Hanna’s death lays firmly at your door.
Avon/Cally ‘Shipping Alert: “Whose is this?” demands Avon. He stops in his tracks when he finds out the Moon Disc belongs to Cally.
Recognisable Face: Karl Howman (Bek) played Jacko the painter, the lead character in the 1980s sitcom Brush Strokes. It was actually a pretty decent comedy, although it went on for a few series too long.
Is Soolin looking lovely this week?: Yes.
Best exchange: Lots of brilliant dialogue in this one, but it’s impossible to ignore: VILA: “Where are all the good guys?” BLAKE: “You could be looking at them.” AVON: “What a very depressing thought.”

Blake's 7 will return in… Carry On Mister Smooth.

Avon's new aftershave was still causing considerable problems.

Jenna: Blake, when you said Shadow....
Zen: Battle computers suggest running away.
Avon: Wait, we have a telepath, and her telepathy works this week!

Mr Huggy and Brad...you will be pleased to know that I had actually consumed my hot chocolate before opening this thread...so my keyboard is unscathed.
Cold.....you don't know the meaning of cold.
Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of the window!!!

I suppose it was just a matter of time until either husband or Hugbot posted one of the Shadow craft from Babylon 5. Inspired!

Or Klanger, or Lorna, or Klenotka.

Love this moment!

And another shipping alert: Avon's statement that Cally "is more human than I am". Very loaded. Especially if paired up with "Everyone is alien to him" said earlier about Avon. Cool

I have a particularly fiendish puzzle for everyone to solve this week, that I will post during the episode.

Why do I get the distinct feeling that we all already know the answer? Pfft

As it is nearly Easter, I can show you the Shadow-related part of my Easter decoration from last year:

I think it might be, without access to the website with which I set the puzzle. Wink

I prefer Chris Boucher's writing to Terry Nation. After 14 episodes on the trot from Mr.T, Shadow is a wonderfully refreshing new direction for the series. The script flows beautifully with lots of memorable one liners which B7 is so fondly remembered for.

Just getting ready. Tea, biccies, choccie......thigh high boots. No, that's taking things just a little too far.

Don't forget the custard. I've got some ambrosia custard to eat during the rewatch Wink
 
Hugbot
Evening all! Oops

No custard, no shadow ... I think this will be a rewatch free of treats.
By the way, has anyone seen the Dark Matter episode where the nominal heroes try to dabble in drug trafficking, the drug is called Shadow, it is the big guy who protests against the plan, Six says, 'Don't you ever get tired of being wrong?' and Nyx chokes a Seer in proper Dayna fashinon? That gave me several deja vues!
