OOOORRRRAAAC! The Heavy Metal Opera


"Never seen Avon lose it like that"

"Is Avon going to pash her (Vena)? He pashes everyone, I'm surprised he hasn't made out with Soolin"

"They look like rescue Gladiators"

"Eww he just crushed her to death"

"That was the dudes head? Thats creepy"

"That Android is scary"

"Those trolleys are gonna do jack #$%^"

"Don't need this anymore... throw"

"Soolin is really puffed. She should lay off the smokes"

Michelle thought this one was really good. She dug the mystery behind the Scorpio's systems failures and she really liked Mullers andriod. It was scary and suitably creepy.

I worried her by saying this was by the guy behind Voice From the Past, but cheered her up again when I said he also wrote Children of Auron.

Avon screaming at Orac to "Restore the Teleport!" Really made her sit up.

There was some great little moments in this one as well. The scene where Soolin discovers Vila in the locker then says he should be a professional after he opened the box was fun.

She loves it when Tarrant and Dayna team up so those two doing some running around was great for both of us. I love it when those two team up as well.

The horror aspect she thought fit in pretty well with Blake's 7 especially when it can look as good as this episode did. The only thing she wasn't big on were the rescue suits. She found them a tad funny.

I was asked if Tarrant or Soolin had done any audios. Tarrant yes, but I haven't got that set yet, but Soolin no "Big Finish doesn't like season D" I told her. What! It's true! A Scorpio Chronicle would be super rad. There is so much you could do. Tarrant mentions to Vila that it was their turn to go on a mission. This makes it open for soooo many two hander plays ala the Chronicles. (okay rant over)

Next up Assassin and good episode that could have been great if it wasn't for one character in particular.

Nice use of the word 'pash'! I'm pretty fond of this one, and I too like it when Tarrant and Dayna team up. Did you notice all the greenery that had been put on the mud for Avon to fall onto towards the end?

I didn't! But I'll take another look.

I was hoping Michelle would notice Avon's slip in Animals. But then again its Animals who wants to watch it that closely?

It's Tarrant and Dayna's chemistry when they team up that lead Michelle to thinking that the pair had a thing going on. I can't blame her, I for one think that would have been cool if they had a relationship.

Apart from Og, that's my favourite part!

I reckon they were probably friends with benefits, if nothing else.

Assassin

or

Revenge of the Surfboarding Killer Bikini Vampire Cancer


"Hey they did that fake dummy thing in Red Dwarf right?"

"B7 did it first!"

"Is it the old man?"

"Um you just met Cancer"

"That lady is suss shes also *$#%ing annoying" My sister doesn't drop many F-bombs.

"God look at her reaction to old man stew its her"

"But you just met... oh alright"

"That old dude was way to nice to live"

"Soolin is great in this"

"This bitch is like a Scooby Doo villain that even Shaggy and Scooby Doo could figure out"

"Ha she also reminds me of a Batman villain from the 60's"

"That death scene is the worst thing I've seen since "CRIMOS!""

"So what'd you think?"

"Oh I loved this one, but that Cancer lady was horrible" Then both of us reenact her death scene and laugh ourselves silly

Servalan blows up the ship and Michelle says and I kid you not "And now they're all dead, end of series" I laughed, but well..... you all know why.


As I said above Michelle loved... well almost loved this episode. The models are good, the costumes are fun, Richard Hurndall is absolutely amazing and Servalan is sexy as hell. Soolin gets some great lines the one pain and art being my fave. Mich likes it when she bitch slapped Piri and later when she remarked that at least a dead person can't hurt her.

There was a surprised look on Michelle's face when Avon actually rescued Nebrox. She didn't expect it.

There is just one problem with the story, only one. Her name is Caroline Holdaway. Michelle and I spent a while afterwards discussing all the things we liked about the story which is everything and everyone else and then we just pretended to act like Piri/Cancer almost dying with laughter.

The actress just has zero subtlety and Michelle went on a tangent about how bad she is. I was a bit worried she may have hated this one til I asked what she thought. Sometimes I think we're twins even though she's 11 years my junior. We don't always agree when it comes to this show and others, but we both agree that this episode could have been absolutely amazing, but one person lets it down.

Michelle thinks and I agree that just because B7 is a science fiction action show, doesn't mean you need to over act.

Anyone wanting to know if Michelle recognized Richard Hurndall will once again be disappointed, because she's never seen the Five Doctors. She did really enjoy his performance though.

So all in all thats two winners in a row. Next up is Games and I fricking love Games!

I know it's only a minor role, but I'm now looking forward to hearing what your sister thinks about the "But words... are only words" Warlord in, er, "Warlord".

Assassin is one I remember very clearly from when I was a kid. The first time I saw it, I didn't figure out the Piri was the assassin. Despite Piri's horrid acting, it is one of my season 4 favorites. I love that Soolin is the one that figured things out and she got some of the best lines.

Games

Stop Shooting Yourself, Stop Shooting Yourself


"Dayna the ninja!"

Tarrant feeds a Fed Trooper into a mulcher "Holy #$%$!"

"Whoa, Vila killed someone. Is that like 3?"

"Well........ Yeah yeah it is"

"Gawd what is Servalan doing rubbing that gun on his face!"

"Aww its a fake"

"We'll never see Belkov again will we?"

Three in a row! Michelle really enjoyed games and that every crew member got something to do, but mostly she loved Vila. His eagerness to steal the crystals, better to "Steal than Deal" saving Dayna and Tarrant, actually killing someone. Commenting that the dust on Tarrant's boot is probably the dead guy and she cheered when Vila pulled out the necklace then got her bubble burst.

Stratford Johns is really good in this one as the slimy and clever Belkov. I love the part where he's talking to Servalan then has to quickly suppress a giggle. He seemed to have great chemistry with every character he interacted with, especially Servalan.

Some of the science-y stuff towards the end went over Michelle's head, but she didn't need to ask me anything. She got the gist just fine, Servalan loses, Scorpio loses, Belkov wins.

It was cool seeing Dayna show off her skill with another weapon like that ninja star thing and its quite brutal (and cool) when Tarrant fed someone to some mulcher thing and the red mist spurted.

For me its a shame Bill Lyons only got to write one story, this ones clever, exciting and has some cool action.

Next up is Sand. A top fiver for me methinks.

Nice that you've now got such a run of great episodes to show Michelle to finish off with... and that you're both enjoying them. I've never understood why people don't like Season D. Once "Animals" is out of the way, it's fabulous episodes all the way.

It is a shame, although the episode is still a good one, even despite Caroline Holdaway.

It would actually work if only Tarrant wasn't attracted to her. After all, it's a great cover... no-one would think a complete lunatic woman was an assassin. And then the twist... that it's not even an act. Even when she's revealed as Cancer, she's still a complete lunatic. That all sorts I suppose... and I guess you do need to be slightly unhinged in the first place to have a job that involves going around killing people. It's not your normal occupation.

But Tarrant fancies this loony. I can only conclude he sustained brain damage during that nasty knock on the head in "Rescue".

I'm actually surprised by it. I didn't know it was so maligned until I came here.

I think a clue is the recent poll, which shows so many fans since 1978. They got used to B7 in a certain way, and even though Season D is in many ways more of the same, the fact it's not exactly the same means that can't watch the episodes with an open mind.

Watched with an open mind, many of B7's finest moments are contained within Season D.

To me, all four seasons are wonderful. In fact apart from two obvious dud episodes (VFTP and Animals - I was delighted when you also picked out those two episodes), there are 50 epidoes of B7 which are all wonderful in one way or the other.

Except none of the Series D episodes involve a story about the Federation trying to steal the ship! I love that.

Three of my top five are right here and well I'd put five of the stories in my top 10. Theres just so much to like.
