If only it was available in the US on DVD!!! Sadly, it is not, forcing me to acquire the PAL version and play it on my computer. However, it is SO worth it. Here's why:

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:

-Doctor Who

-The Day of the Triffids

-Survivors

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!!!

As an American Blakes 7 fan I've had to go through a trial-and-error process regarding the Blakes 7 Region 2 DVD sets. Here are some things to watch out for. Most (possibly all) DVD-Rom drives will allow you to switch the region setting up to five times. By changing the DVD Region setting to United Kingdom, I was able to watch these Region 2 DVDs on my computer.*

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.

This is top notch Sci-Fi made by the creator of the Daleks: Terry Nation. You may order it from Amazon UK but need a PAL dvd player. The story line is that of a band of rebels fighting an evil and corrupt Earth based Federation. Sort of like the one in Star Trek's mirror universe. The stories are hard hitting and no holds barred. However the show relies on great plots, and good acting instead of violence and special effects. I strongly recommend it.

The brainchild of Terry Nation, Blakes 7 remains one of Britain's most popular Sci-Fi series. U.S audiences may be familiar with Doctor Who, which is brilliant, but the grim universe Nation conceived for Blakes 7 is a far more gritty adult affair.

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.
