Quote of the Day


  • "It is melancholy to reflect that Mankind has suffered more from ill-judged philanthropy than [from] calculated malice. The road to Hell is no less harrowing for being paved with good intentions." ~ Giles St. Aubyn, biography of King Edward VII

  • : Blake's 7 - Series 2

    Blake's 7 - Series 2
    When the BBC brought back the surprise sci-fi hit, they pumped in more money. And it shows. Kitsch, camp, quirky, intelligent, witty, daring and just bloody brilliant. The return of the Liberator and crew. Review (*****)

  • : Blake's 7 - Series 1 [1978]

    Blake's 7 - Series 1 [1978]
    The greatest sci-fi series ever is now on DVD. Forget the cheapness of the whole affair and just wallow in perfection. Blake's 7 should be the benchmark by which all TV sci-fi should be judged. Review (*****)
