4.0 out of 5 stars
Excellent - some more extras would've been good though, 19 Mar 2004
I have very fond memories of Blake's 7 - I watched each and every episode when it was originally aired here in Australia, and I was very saddened when it ended. Hopefully the new series (or more precisely, new mini-series) will fill the void.
The DVD boxset is certainly an excellent update of this much loved series (even though it was delayed for 12 months). The visuals are crystal clear, the layer changes were not noticeable on my equipment, and while I was hoping for a little more out of the audio (at least a stereo up-mix would've been good), a lot can be forgiven (even those cardboard sets, and the wobbly controls on the Liberator bridge).
The user above mentioned that "approximately 10 minutes has been deleted from each episode", which appears to be incorrect. Each episode is ~52 minutes long, which is the same as it ever was. I even compared this to my VHS copies, and there was no time difference noticeable.
Overall a great replacement for my aging videos - one which I'm sure will be revisited time and again.
