The Gift of B7

Vila's death cut Michelle the deepest.


I recall years ago hearing Michael Keating say Vila faked it, and that you could tell because instead of being knocked forward by the impact hitting him in the back, he actually topples down sort of backwards.

Well done to you, GC, not only for your excellent reports episode by episode, but for your admirable restraint in keeping spoilers to yourself. This has been a helluva good read!SmileSmile

I agree and I feel somewhat choked it's over!

So we reach the end (in more ways than one). I too have enjoyed following along on the journey and will miss the updates.
I remember watching "Blake" as a kid and I was shocked at the ending. The "she hit the self-destruct" conversation also stood out for me (I'm a Jenna fan). When I watched the entire series again last year, I knew full well what was coming, but it was still shocking; and it seemed so senseless. It is one of those cases where no matter how many time I see it I will always wish it could have been different. As a kid, I blamed Avon for the mess. As an adult, I can see that there was blame, and stupid decisions, to go around. However, they were likely running on borrowed time and there are worse things than a quick death. I would include an encounter with the Federation "justice" system on that list.

I thank Michelle too, because she could have found everything out in seconds thanks to the trusty internet.

Over the next few months we will be doing the Season B 2 stories that BF are doing. So whilst we're done, I still have some gifts to hand out.

Of course, all praise to Michelle on her restraint as I can't think of many 20 Y/O's of my acquaintance who would resist the urge to Google the moment something piqued their interest. As it happens, I'm treading that very fine line with one of my own who has expressed an interest in watching B7 with me at some stage but is currently working his way through DW. I'm really downplaying the whole thing to stop him investigating on his own, whilst chewing my nails to the armpits wanting to get on with it!

Don't do it, GC. Look what happened to that other famous nail-biter, the Venus de Milo.

Season D roundup

Michelles favourite stories were, Games, Warlord and Traiter with mentions to Assassin (let down by Cancer) and Gold.

Mine are He Isn't My Brother and He's Heavy, Computer Love and Alwaaaaaays Beelieeeeeve Innnnnn Yourrrrrrr Soullllll with mentions to Stop Shooting Yourself, Stop Shooting Yourself (actually I like this as much as Gold) Zukant Believe a word you say.

Michelles two least favourite are Orbit (NOOOOOOOOOOOO) and Rescue and a mention to Animals.

My least favourite is Dayna's Bad Romance. I like to love the rest.

Her top two characters were (She won't mention Tarrant) Vila and reluctantly Avon, but Michelle really hasn't forgiven him for Orbit, Zeeona and shooting Blake. He didn't even give Blake a chance!

In regards to Soolin she was too much like Dayna and you didn't find out enough about her until the end.

My top two characters are and always will be Avon and Vila. Unlike Michelle I love every second of Avon we get in season D. Unpredictable and badass. Vila the smart and hilarious thief. The running gag of Vila saying things like "Doesn't everybody?" (have a criminal record) is hilarious. He's the heart of the season.

Hi Michelle! I've really enjoyed reading your impressions via your bro. I echo what Sopron said ... HappySmile

Series overview

Right so Michelle is in the room with me and I have given her an ultimatum what are your favourite episodes

"How many can I have?"

"How many do you want?"

"ummmmmm 5"

"Right go"

"Harvest of Kairos"

"Are these in order?"

"No. City At the Edge of the World"

"Gambit"

"Thats three, you got two more"

"Possibly Star One, I don't know"

"Whats that episode where someone murders someone? Its season 1"

"Mission to Destiny?"

"You forgot a Death-Watch" I'm looking at the roundups by this stage as she's taking ages

"Oh yeah thats awesome, that one"

Now its between Warlord and Mission to Destiny

"Mission to Destiny" (wins)

"But if I was doing a top ten it'd include Warlord, Killer, Aftermath, Countdown, Games/Gold" I let her do both Gold and Games. Can you blame us?

"Not Star One?"

"Nah"

Whew!

"Okay worst, keep it to 5"


"Hostage, ew kissing a cousin"

"Voice From the Past"

"Ultraworld"

"Dawn of the Gods"

"Cygnus Alpha" WOW! Yes My sister is an athiest (like me) and she hates things with heavy religious themes.

For anyone who is keeping score my top ten if you locked me down today would be:

Everybody Hurts..... And is Tired
He Isn't My Brother and He's Heavy
Goldcally... duh duh daaaaaaa
Computer Love
Stop Shooting Yourself, Stop Shooting Yourself
Alwaaaaaays Beelieeeeeve Innnnnn Yourrrrrrr Soullllll
"Lady In Red"
Cleanliness is Next to Vila-ness
Zukant Believe A Word You Say
Peckinpah Bloodbath

Though four to ten could change!

Only two episodes I disliked.... Servalan in IMAX and Dayna's Bad Romance.

"So now encompassing all 52 episodes who were your fave-"

"Vila, Avon, Servalan..... and Tarrant" No need to go into the why's its in the previous posts. She does however love Cally, mostly because of Season C

Mine are Avon, Vila, Servalan and Dayna. I asked Michelle to guess this and she got it right away in the exact order.

Michelle only disliked one character and thats Blake.

I'd love to ramble on forever and I wish we had more than 52 episodes, but for now I think we can say this is officially it. Yes we will cover the BF audios, but that is a rap.

Much of that last scene contains hooks for the characters survival - Vilas direction of fall is one of them.

these deserve to be typed up and put on a website all by their own, they're too good for us to keep just to ourselves at Horizon Smile
 
Gauda Cheese
I'll keep you posted.

Get it? Keep you posted? and this is a post?

Okay I'll stop.

I hope Michelle derives some consolation from the fact that our thoughts were her while she went through the ordeal of watching Blake for the very first time.
A pity it's over. I very much enjoyed this thread ... as you may have guessed by the name I picked. It was of course Michelle's description of the security robot that led Travisina to coin the name Hugbot 9000 which in turn inspired me to choose this name. Hope neither you nor Travisina will sue me for copyright infringement?
