UK Rewatch - C2 Powerplay
trevor travis
The episode: Colin Two – Powerplay (Carry On Space Nurse)
The date: Tuesday, July 12th, 2022
The time: 7.45pm UK time

In which the new curly-haired chap makes his first full appearance; Avalon has a new occupation and she dupes Vila, as he and Cally nearly become a bunch of spare parts; and Dayna shows how deadly she is, by killing a man with her knee and then throttling Mr Bronson… er, sorry… Section Leader Klegg to death.

Episode in a word: Convergence (the convergence of two separate A and B plots in the final few minutes – classic Terry Nation!).
Characters to cheer: Dayna continues to be rather wonderful. And Tarrant’s first full hour is one of his best - he’s a smart cookie and we’re left guessing to which side he’s on for most of the episode.
Character to boo: No-one is that dislikeable here, while I refuse to include Mr Bronson... er, sorry… Section Leader Klegg. But Vila is rather gullible, to say the least – although it’s no surprise and rather in character when he gets taken in by a pretty face or two.
Is Soolin looking lovely this week?: Yes.
Recognisable Face: Michael Sheard (Klegg) has been in just about everything: Star Wars, Doctor Who, you name it. But, of course, he played the evil creature in the universe… Mr Bronson in Grange Hill. The most scary teacher ever. It says much for the supreme acting talents of Michael Sheard, that within a few weeks, the whole nation was after his blood (following the death of pupil Danny Kendall) and then felt sorry that the old boy was leaving teaching after he turned a new leaf in the wake of Kendall’s death. They don’t make them like Michael Sheard any more. And in case you’re wondering from where you remember John Hollis (Lom) – it could well be Flash Gordon!
Best line: “I'm not very good with pain. It's not that I'm a coward or anything. It's just that I have a very low pain threshold. Hardly a threshold at all, actually.”

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

I get back from a little side trip,
And this tall guy starts giving me lip.
Vila and Cally avoid their finale,
But as for Blake, this is MY ship.

Hoping to participate in this one tomorrow. It's a toss-up between this and a re-watch of 'Dallas' Series 2 Episode 8. That's the one where JR cuts a questionable deal, Bobby's a bit of a drip (not shower-related), Sue Ellen is visibly upset, Jock wears a big hat, Pammy pouts somewhat excessively, Cliff has the major hump about something, Lucy totters about on unsuitable heels, Ray seems reasonably genial for the most part and Miss Ellie presides over a massive communal breakfast for patio-only consumption. That doesn't really narrow it down very much, unfortunately.
Meanwhile back in the year one...

Hail and well-met. And for those of you who attended Forever Avon, I trust the locals round here treated you with tact and respect. If so, that’d be a first. (For them, not for you, I mean…)

On to tonight! ‘Dallas’ can wait. Bunch of cowboys. Avon trumps JR. B7 wins. (Especially the bit when Vila finishes his ablutions and finds out the first two series were just a dream.) Let’s do this!

Good to see that the tube of prawn cocktail pringles hasn't been wasted.
This reminds me that I have to mail-order a few prawn cocktail pringles for the next rewatches (not possible to get them in a shop over here Sad ).

Dayna randomly pushing buttons. Klegg and Tarrant letting her.

Klegg has to be the best name for such an obnoxious character. Cleggs are horrible little things that sneak up on you and bite.

Avon: I have a number of influential friends.
Klegg: I have a gun.

I think Dayna will always hold that against Tarrant.
