What are you watching?

Sometimes I wish "Terminal" had been the end of the show (as was the original plan) - Season 4 (or Season D for the pedants) feels like more of a reset than a continuation (although the last two episodes more than make up for it).

Blake's 7 and Babylon 5 have the same thing going on, they got stretched a year past their Best-By date.

Though the final season of each show has gems worth watching the overall feel of the season is that it is somehow lesser in stature than those that came before.

I wouldn't be without Sand, Gold, Games, Orbit either, and Avon's last grin means much more in Blake than it ever could in Terminal.
 
Psychostrategist
Oh I agree it's all good from end to finish as far as I'm concerned but I'm a fan so I'm biased. Even though I love the whole show, notably these Series 4 episodes you mention, Season 4 showed a lack of focus and direction and in the case of episodes like Animals showed itself to be scraping the bottom of the barrel at times. There were stinkers from earlier seasons but the earlier seasons had this overall arc of a team not always at each others' throats that we hoped would eventually overthrow The Federation. Season 4 is more like Avon-does-piracy.

So Series C is finished.

Goodbye Cally, Goodbye Liberator, Goodbye Zen, Goodbye David Maloney. Zen's death still hits me hard even after umpteen watches, his is definitely the saddest death of the lot.

Zen's death is the end of innocence...Frown

Currently watching the cult classic Killer Klowns from Outer Space for the first time. Thank God I'm not coulrophobic (although I do find clowns slightly disquieting - I think it's because I saw Tim Burton's Batman movie from the 80s at a young age).

Still on our intermittent watching of Public Eye...what a brilliant programme! Really hooks you in. The last episode watched was a Xmas edition of the programme. Bizarre and comic. For anyone not familiar with it, Public Eye is about Frank Marker a private detective completely in the real world. Nothing glamorous here. In tone it is more like Callan but without the violence and politics. Ran from late 60s to mid 70s. Currently being reshown, out of sequence, on Talking Pictures...Just beginning a rewatch of Minder from the start.

Where did you get the facsimile novel from, rojkerr1?

Who is the author? Various or a single writer?

Just caught up with it (I've had a series link on my Tivo box), so that's what Supreme Commander Servie was upto before she joined the Federation. It was quite surreal watching her in this episode; it was literally Servalan in front of you...complete with the hairstyle!!!
Cold.....you don't know the meaning of cold.
Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of the window!!!

I've watched an episode of Special Branch called smokescreen, first aired on the 24 September 1969 on ITV, and Paul Darrow guest stared as a lawyer. At the end of his scene I got up and applauded it was that good. Amazing talent.

Think it was a fan produced one, through Alan Hayes company I think, will have a look

Enjoying a rewatch of Hyperdrive, series one and two, with Nick Frost, Kevin Eildon and Miranda Hart (BBC 2007). Lots of references to other sci-fi worked seamlessly into a storyline where they are on a mission to market Britain and British products (and places like Peterborough) to the rest of the galaxy. Special bits for me: 'You left your post, Captain!" Reply: "I went to the toilet', 'Talky door! Talky door!", giant baked beans, and of course, the song. "Kill the humans, kill them now...... " Well worth a look if you don't know it. Also worth a rewatch if you do.

BBC's The Six Wives of Henry VIII.

Keith Mitchell as the definitive king. Burton was good in "Anne of the Thousand Days" but Mitchell gets a whole range of talented co-stars to shine alongside.


Factlet... The masked lady who entered the chapel with a man while KoA was praying during the masque scene in A1000D was Elizabeth Taylor. ET was wearing a pearl pendant originally gifted to Mary I by Philip of Spain.

Gosh, I haven't seen the series since it was originally on TV! I remember loving it, and reading in parallel the Jean Plaidy novels.

With the help of a search on Google, Port of secrets a Norwegian miniseries for school television at NRK, starring Paul Darrow and filmed in Porthleven Cornwall in 1974 is well worth a look.

thank you
