One of the best series ever made by the BBC.,
This review is from: Blake's 7, Complete Collection (DVD)
Blake's Seven is a wonderful series, a "must see" if you are interested in sci-fi. Of course, in such a long-running series, there are a few dud episodes, but the general level is very high. Good story lines, excellent main actors, originality, and the underlying theme of rebellion against an oppressive State make this a series you can re-watch.
On the negative side, the special effects are 1970s-vintage "budget BBC", and fall far short of what modern audiences expect. If that's important to you, you might not like the series. But for the imaginative viewer who values content over visual glitz, this is one of the best sci-fi series ever made anywhere.
