Blake's 7 rewatch

Following the death of far too young Gareth Thomas . I'm wondering if there's any interest in a B7 rewatch? If you haven't: it is the original Babylon 5, Firefly and Farscape, with rubbish sets, amazing costumes, and plastic. We have two so far, and now Supergirl has ended my early week is empty. And as cold as Servalan. Created by Terry "Dalek" Nation, and basically offcuts of the BBC Dr Who types, there is a lot to recommend it and if you don't have the DVDs or if it isn't on streaming, it is on YouTube.
