A to Z Challenge B is for BLAKES 7

In 1978 a television series premiered in England that set the standard for all Science Fiction series that followed, not just in England but in the United States as well.

The series was titled BLAKES 7 and it was about a group of criminals fighting against a tyrannical government that used mind control and death squads to control the population.

It was dark, gritty and did not end up a happy note, but has to this day a cult following larger than even Doctor Who.

Here is a series of clips from the series to give an idea of the whit and witticism in the writing especially by one central character of Avon.

  1. I had never heard of this show, but it sounds like a classic show people loved. I just am not a big fan of TV these days, but I have shows I have fond memories of.
