I was never a fan myself, but if you liked Blake's 7 this should be good news.

As a fan of Blake's 7 that is sooooooooooooooo not good news.

Not in a million years will they remotely recapture what made the original so good.

Only US tv shows can be remade cos they werent really that good to start with. British shows were brilliant from the get go.

Or, to put it another way

British TV shows had a wonky set but rock solid characters and plots.

I don't know who the guest stars were, but they were hugely annoying :o

They do a show on... channel 4, I think it is.  The Friday Night Project.
Nights were long in Cleckheaton before I got the Internet and Sky installed.
