1. Great writing. The beginning story arc ('The Way Back' to 'Cygnus Alpha' is great. 'Mission to Destiny', 'Duel' and 'Seek-Locate-Destroy' are great as well.)
2. Paul Darrow - He rocks as Avon and the best written character of the series.
3. The Liberator - Ah, what a ship!
4. Terry Nation - Creator of the Daleks, he created and set the tone for what would follow. This is not kid's stuff.
5. Steven Grief as Travis. The best is still the original. Watch his brief monologue at the end of 'Seek-Locate-Destroy' and then watch what Brian Croucher does, well, anytime in Series B. Case closed.
Blake's 7 is a study in how to write, direct on a limited budget, and get quality acting. I cannot see how, if you like SciFi, you CANNOT afford to miss this series. It is one of the pinnacles of British TV along with:
-The Day of the Triffids
I can't say enough about this series. It is so good I bought all the VHS tapes (getting worn out now)!! Superb TV and just, well, just fantastic!!!
You also have the option of buying a region free DVD player, which you can get for less than $100. For HDMI compatibility, there are the multi region blu-ray players which are more expensive.
Be sure to ask the seller if you'll be getting a 4-disk or 5-disk set. The Amazon photo isn't necessarily what the seller will send you. The 5-disk sets are much better and include commentaries and special features. You'll know you have the 5-disk set when it's packaged in a cardboard casing with just the Blakes 7 logo on the front cover.
The 4-disk "international" sets are designed for non-English speaking countries. They don't include any commentaries or special features - just the episodes with optional subtitles in a foreign language and a cheaply redesigned main menu to incorporate that language. These sets are in plastic casings and have the logo plus three production photos on the front cover. Be wary of sellers who mention foreign subtitles, because the subtitles on the 5-disk sets are only in English.
Blakes 7 has been called the anti-Star Trek. It's a smartly written, grim science fiction show with ambiguous morals and sarcastic dialogue set in a bleak dystopian future. The look and special effects are reminiscent of 1970s Doctor Who, but the writing puts it more in league with shows like The Prisoner.
Every episode in the first series was written by it's creator, Terry Nation (famed for having created the Daleks for Doctor Who). Following the first series, episodes were written by various authors. Script editor Chris Boucher wrote many of them, with occasional episodes written by Robert Holmes just after his amazing stint as script editor for Doctor Who.
By the end of the second series enough actors had left the show to make for an uneven series three. When Blakes 7 was unexpectedly renewed for a fourth series, several changes resulted in a run of very dark episodes, culminating in a terrific grand finale.
Kudos to the team that designed the DVD sets. The animated menus convey a great respect for the show. The special features are abundant with both old and recent interviews with the actors, particularly the series four set, which includes a lengthy interview with actor Paul Darrow who played Avon throughout the show's run.

A motley collection of individuals ply their way through the galaxy trying to overthrow the oppressive totalitarian regime of the Terran Federation. Roj Blake is a political agitator falsely accused of sex crimes and sent to Cygnus Alpha a remote penal colony. He escapes in a futuristic ship and is joined by Kerr Avon, a computer genius, Jenna Stanis, a smuggler and pilot, Vila Restal, a thief and self-confessed coward, Olag Gan a usually gentle giant and later Calley, a native of Auron who is capable of reading thoughts and feelings.
The ship, the Liberator, the fastest and most powerful in the galaxy affords the crew protection from the ruthless Federation. They are hounded by the power hungry Supreme Commander Servalan and her crony, Space Commander Travis, who will stop at nothing to avenge the wounds he received from Blake.
What makes the series so great is the fantastic dialogue and exceptional acting. The concept for the show is well done and makes up for the primitive BBC 1970's special effects. The crew not only fight the Federation, but also have to overcome inter-personal conflicts, especially between Blake and Avon. Blake may be a conscientious character with an axe to grind against the Federation, but Avon provides the pragmatic and less emtional counter-part.
Avon remains my all time favorite anti-hero. He's the Dirty Harry of the Sci-Fi world. Dark, brooding an intelligent(Avon means "dark waters"), Avon's quips throughout the series are a highlight of the character conflicts. "I look upon self interest as my great strength." "I've never understood why it should be necessary to become irrational in order to prove that your care, or indeed why it should be necessary to prove it at all."
I recently bought the series from Amazon and can't wait for it to arrive. I grew up watching it in the late 70's in New Zealand where it quickly became a cult fav'. I got reacquainted with the series as a teen in the late 80's and on payTV in the 90's once again. I have to say this is my all time favourite sci-fi show and as you can tell I've memorized screeds of dialogue and other nerdy facts about it. My dream is still to pen some fan-fiction, ideas I've been kicking around for years are slowly coming to fruition.... If you can cope with the special effects, this will not disappoint if you enjoy sci-fi.
These are region 2 disks which are playable on laptops once you reselect the region code. With the exception of playing around with the interlacing, the disks played normaly. Not sure about buying additional seasons if they continue releasing them in region 2 only. Tried to lend the disks to friends, but none of them want to mess with the region coding.
