I'd be happy to do a double rewatch. Not just cause we here in Oz always like to be first! - but also I'm thinking there's 52 episodes and.... we'll..... 52 weeks in a year (do you see where I'm going with this) .....um.... if we're behind we'll be watching 'Blake' in 2023. (Good god I say 2023 - I havent even got my mind around 2022 yet!!!) Anyway, just a thought.

I'd be happy to do a double rewatch also, so that we can catch up, although I must confess, I've done a spot of rewatching anyway. Interesting what thoughts came into my mind this time. Probably fairly close to what I thought back in 1979...

Looking forward to Saturday, Southern/Eastern Hemisphere peeps. See you there!

Double rewatch puts us ahead again - what's not to like?
 
AnneArthur
Double re-watch this Saturday and one a week after that? I could do that.

GRR- having carefully worked my way up to Beta, I'm now back down below the service grades again . . .

Annoying, isn't it? But at least everyone else is back there too. You have to do what certain others have done in the past and comment on every thread. Wink

"See" you soon!

Hello everyone, I’m here.

Probably sounds strange to say but I don’t know what my previous level was. I should’ve looked.

Hello! Long time, no see, but glad to be here. I hope I’m at the right time.

Hello all. Obsidian - I've just PM'd you - not sure whether we get e-mail notifications yet. Grading? I ended up being 'promoted' - it only took weeks of grovelling!

You were an Alpha, hun. But we're too grown up to race, aren't we?

Hi all!

I'm here for Cygnus Alpha, but have to dash off straight after. Feel free to carry on with Time Squad, and I'll catch up with the thread later...

It's great to see everyone on our shiny new Forum - welcome! Grin
There is no point being grown up if you can't be childish sometimes

Have you all started? I have.

Are we starting?

It's lovely to be here Travisina. So glad you, the Website Mutoid and MsVirn survived it.

Oh dear. Leylan is ruing his decisions.

I'd forgotten Avon pulled a gun on Blake. Wish he'd done the deed, it would have saved a lot of trouble.

That was one of the best scenes.

It would have been a VERY short series, though!

I love Jenna psychically bonding with the Liberator. I wish that had been further explored (I have a fan fic in mind...)

Agreed!

I warm to Avon in this ep. because, by pulling the gun and his "Don't touch its", he shows that he's afraid, whereas Blake is all full of himself.

Sorry I'm late. Leylan is just writing up his log. This is not one of my favourite episodes.
 
M1795537OCVirn
Telling the story via 'log updates' is a bit clumsy. But it was a long time ago...

I don't know if Terry internationally wrote it to rhyme, but I like the juxtaposition of 'Place of Rebirth' and 'Berthing sequence initiated'. I've only just noticed it!

It's got some classic lines. It's the ep that made me keep watching.

I don't understand the timeline of this episode. It would seem that Blake and the others have just arrived on the Liberator, and yet the London is nearly at Cygnus Alpha.

We wouldn’t have a show.

Aw, sorry to hear that! But it's a very very important ep, for character development and storylines!

Interesting. It would have made me give up, I think, if it was the first one I saw.

I rather like it because it's one of the few instances where some of the same characters appear.
