4.0 out of 5 stars Hurry up series 4!!!!!!, 20 Oct 2005
This review is from: Blake 7 Series 3 - Limited Collector's Edition [DVD] (DVD)
It's great to see series 3 out on DVD!
25+ years before "Firefly", we have "Blake's 7". A groundbreaking and daring show that is a mix of Robin Hood, The Great Escape, Star Wars, and The Magnificant Seven.
While not the best series of the bunch (series 4 being better), this series still has a number of classic episodes.
Classic episodes to look out for include:
* Aftermath. Apart from Dayna's introduction and background, this is a fairly stock story.
* The Harvest of Kairos. A chance for some piracy goes awry thanks to an old acquaintance of Tarrant's.
* The City at the Edge of the World. Vila, for once, saves the day. A surprisingly underrated story.
* Rumours of Death. A great Avon story that wraps up some old character background points. In this season's Top 3.
* Sarcophagus. While an acquired taste, Tanith Lee does an interesting job at mixing sci-fi with fantasy. Tanith's series 4 story "Sand" is far more interesting, however...
"Death-Watch". Another top-3 winner, this deals with a clever ploy by Servalan to expand the Federation by interfering with war games set up by two soverign star systems. Highly atmospheric and gripping, this is a must-see.
"Terminal". The original 'season finale', we should be glad series 4 got made! That nitpick aside, this story is still a competent and highly enjoyable one. Vila gets a few great moments as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Series 3 and 4 are even better than Series 1 & 2, 19 Feb 2006
This review is from: Blake 7 Series 3 - Limited Collector's Edition [DVD] (DVD)
With series 3, Blake's 7 moved from being a very good series to an outstanding series. It's hard to say exactly why series 3 is better than series 2; I think a number of small factors add up. The weak actor who played Travis version 2 is gone; Gareth Thomas is gone; the stories are, on the whole, slightly better. The special effects are still low-budget BBC, but that doesn't matter so much as the scripts and the actors.
If you like SF at all: buy this series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blakes Seven - Good but not as good as series 1 & 2, 1 Feb 2010

This review is from: Blake 7 Series 3 - Limited Collector's Edition [DVD] (DVD)
I watched this as a child and really enjoyed it. Now much older I still enjoy the series but like many others feel series 3 lacks the direction and focus that the 1st two series did. The federation are less prominant and the aim of destroying them seems less important to the central characters. The series seems to flit randomly without purpose. Some good episodes but equaly some real turkeys

The series was well worth the wait. I recommend all three sets and look forward to the release of the fourth series.
