But can I get a pizza faxed over?

Give it another couple of decades......... in the mean time you’ll have to stick to the teleport.[/quote]

The food's nicer by teleport. The fax makes it all... toner-y.

I thought the reason that she pauses before making the last connection, is that she knows it's the last thing she'll do. (But maybe that's just how I justify continuing to like Avon after this episode).


I don't blame Avon for doing what he did. After all, he knew they would all be dead if he didn't sacrifice her. His chilly reaction afterwards for me was the part that was hard to swallow. However, even that I can justify. Better to pretend it never happened and move on or at least that was his mindset?


Yes. As he said, she's dead either way. But, his reply at the end is chilling. I see what you mean, about putting it out of his mind to cope with it. I've been choosing to believe Avon has amnesia from all those clonks on his head, as my method to cope with it.

Ironically, the fact that B7 was not a kids' programme was one major reason I liked it... as a kid Wink[/quote]

One of the reasons I liked similar programs as a kid – they didn't lie to you about life. Happy endings, especially of the Hollywood kind, have always struck me as terribly insincere.

Here is H.E. Cooper's blog on the subject of Stardrive. She's watching the series for the first time, managing to avoid any spoilers, and her blogs are a joy.

I was thinking about her review before the episode started. She seems to be doing one every week, so we're pretty much on track with her. I'm so glad she's keeping away from spoilers (apart from the first B7 mag). Hopefully she'll survive Animals well enough to make it to Gold, Orbit and the very last episode.

According to her posts on Twitter, SHE LIKED ANIMALS!!! I can't wait to read her blog about that.


Gasp! Well, you gotta love Og.

Thoughts:
1. And we were just talking about Avon being clonked on the head...
2. Well, someone's got to, along with Una McC.
3. Excellent. Each to their own. We all have our own tastes. I'm glad she enjoyed it.

Thanks for a very enjoyable rewatch everyone. See you next time.

The blog looks excellent, Travisina, I really must make time for it!

Ah, a Garuda. You're always safe with him and so are your faxes.


We never seem to have any faxes. It must be eating them.

Does anyone send faxes any more?


Why bother when you can email?

Exactly.


Catching up on the thread over breakfast and had to chime in on the faxes. When I got my current job part of the new-hire paperwork had to be faxed. I was surprised and joked about the 90's wanting their fax back. Had to go to a copy shop to do it, but the guy there said it wasn't uncommon with that type of paperwork. Then I started the job and found out that we fax things every day. I work in medical testing and the patient records generate a shocking amount of paper. About half the samples we get are from other hospitals (we do very specialized testing) and the results for the external samples are reported by fax. I'm actually getting trained on how to do it, a skill I didn't expect to need Grin I'm glad we don't have a Garuda guarding our machine as it is out in the middle of the office.

Hi Ellen! Nice to have you joining in Smile
My disastrous relationship with fax machines goes back to the early '80s, when they were new-fangled things. I'd landed a temp job in the customer service department of a company that made them, and had to deal with phone calls from people who couldn't figure out how to use them, or what to do if they went wrong. I didn't have a clue, and the darn things never worked when I was testing them. Subsequent machines, in subsequent jobs behaved likewise. I'm sure they did it on purpose.

Incidentally, the fax machine company was called Kalle Infotec - and 'Kalle' was pronounced 'Cally'. So there is a B7 connection to this story!
