Rewatch Downunder - D1 Rescue, Saturday 1st October

Soolin gets the eighties glasses (to be found in every sefl-respecting student flat) out.

Some episodes I found confusing so had to rewatch them to help clarify what I was watching.
Australia
The Penal Colony
Where Servalan is supreme commander.

Nope, I think you've got it.
Of course, it's a take on Oscar Wilde's ' The picture of Dorian Grey' where the portrait aged but the man didn't.

Pity other members here aren't here to join in. Seeing the membership is growing rapidly each week. Be even better if we or some to have a social night out. I know it's difficult due to vast distances etc. Just a passing thought

I think that's right. The monster absorbs them, and that allows it to absorb more of Dorian's negativity, and gives him his youth back.

Why not suggest it on the meetings thread?

If Tarrant is puffed out going ‘down’ the stairs how the heck is he going to get back up?

Saw several photos of Supreme Commander Servalan on fb outstanding photos showing several different shots & her magnificent wardrobe of clothes.
Always admired her dress sense very modern & trendy.

There’s a meetings thread?

He was quite badly injured in the explosion on Terminal, and he hasn't had a chance to rest since.

But the teleport isn’t working…..

The look on Vila‘s face when he finds out his gun is useless is hilarious.

A meeting thread sounds great. I know there us here from Australia as you know I'm from Melbourne & others from interstate. Used to be more from here but that was way, way back in the days of old.

I know I keep going on about it, but just think how much better the character of Dayna would be (would have been?) if she was played by someone several years younger - say 14 or 15 rather than 19/20. It would change the feel of the whole thing. As it is, people have to pretend she's younger than she is.

Poor Vila he seems to cop it no matter what....he's the one crew member I really feel for.

PATHETIC EXCUSE!

Ms. Virn yes Dayna is young but just think 'if' they did introduce a younger Dayna? The mind boggles.....

If you need help setting up the thread, just ask.

Supreme Commander are you sulking? Not like you..

This scene with the Gestalt is where all those acting classes payoff. LOL
 
AnneArthur
Could Avon and Soolin, even unarmed, not have jumped Dorian and overpowered him?

Saw ages ago the BBC is thinking of a remake of the series with all new crew etc
Does anyone know? Saw a brief 5min clip on Utube

Gan's is still the best death scene. Everyone else - other than Cally, who does it telepathically - ends up overacting.

Yes but her time with Justin would have been even more creepy…….

Liked Dorian pity they killed him off. But the new ship & Slave are well played out.

Exactly! She's written younger, which is what bugs me. And think of how weird that scene is between Dayna and Servalan in Aftermath,.

Slave isn't as direct as ZEN but serves a useful role as the ships computer & with ORAC both make a worthy duo.

I think Peter T enjoyed playing Slave!

I'd better try to explain that to Travisina...

Thanks for the company, everyone. Looking forward to next time. I'd better go and find out what my kitten is up to - it's worrying when she's gone quiet.

Epilogue. The kitten was destroying a sponge. Bits of it everywhere. Need a new sponge.
