UK Rewatch - C5 The Harvest Of Kairos
trevor travis
The episode: Colin Five - Carry On Captain Shad (The Harvest Of Kairos)
The date: Tuesday, August 2nd, 2022
The time: 7.45pm UK time

In which Sid James stars as Jarvik, Barbara Windsor as Servalan, Kenneth Connor as Captain Shad, Kenneth Williams as Avon, Joan Sims as Cally, Charles Hawtrey as Vila, Jim Dale as Tarrant, Valerie Leon as Dayna, Peter Butterworth as Zen and Orac, and Hattie Jacques and Bernard Bresslaw as Boris The Spider. Oooooh, Marton! There's double-entendres aplenty, as all your Carry On favourites travel to the planet Kairos at the time of the Harvest, and Avon shows Cally his big rock!

Episode in a word: Smeghead! (Who? Keep on reading! )
Characters to cheer: It’s very hard not to like Jarvik The Caveman, despite him being a bit of a sexist. Or is he? I dunno. Ladies, what do you think? In any case, it’s Servie who has him carrying out her every whim and she also finally gets on the Libby flight deck. She’s great in this, with Jacs really enjoying the chance to camp it up – she plays a big part in making this episode so enjoyable.
Character to boo: To quote Dave Lister: “You know what the big joke is? From this particular phase in history we derive the phrase, ‘Beware of Greeks bearing gifts’ when it would be much more logical to derive the phrase, ‘Beware of Trojans, they're complete smegheads’!”. Well, it’s not just the Trojans, because that’s exactly what Tarrant falls for here. I bet it’s the last time Avon allows Tarrant in charge of the Libby for a week’s work experience.
Is Soolin looking lovely this week?: Yes.
Recognisable Face: Andrew Burt (Jarvik) was the original Jack Sugden in “Emmeradale Farm”. No really – he was!
Best line: “But first, there is the question of that degrading and primitive act to which I was subjected in the control room... I should like you to do it again.”

Blake's 7 will return in… Carry On Space Thief
Vote Og.

That Jarvik is clever and proud.
He even has our Tarrant cowed.
And he wasn't hesitant wooing the President
Now he's clad in a funeral shroud.

Just getting ready, despite a slightly damp keyboard (yes Mr Huggy, I'm pointing to you). Tea, choccie and biccies almost prepared.
But tell me, TT, why was it that, back in the day, whenever the dear old Beeb deigned to mention B7 they either showed a piccie of the Decimas (from the Web ) or a piccie of Boris the spider thingy? These pictures were usually followed by roars of laughter from the audience (although it may have been canned laughter, who knows?)
Cold! You don't know the meaning of the word cold!
Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of your window!!

Quite right. It would take Babylon 5 and Farscape to change that attitude. Two series, incidentally, that were heavily influenced by B7.

Yesterday on Breakfast Tv they were talking about Nichelle Nichols and how she had the first interracial kiss with William Shatner. All of the people on the couches were laughing at the piece of film they showed, completely unaware that at the time of ST the Hays Code was still in force!!!!

To be fair Star Trek TNG for a time was in competition with B5 and added to the change of attitude.

'Earth temperatures, you said.'
Well, I guess Avon didn't indicate whether he meant the temperature at the equator or at the north pole.

No, it's weird!
Maybe he can be obsessed from time to time, but then he will never show it!
