Blake’s 7 Lives

They’re probably going to ruin the remake by bringing too many “contemporary themes” into it. But that’s okay. Many of the original episodes were awful in and of themselves — I was 14 and could see the plot holes and artificiality from across the living room — though the few times they were on, they were so on it was chilling.  It also had a very, very different feel from the “Star Wars, we’re outnumbered but obviously going to win anyway” vibe I’d seen earlier, let alone the consistently smug solipsism that constitutes the majority of Star Trek.

But I get to go to work knowing that my brother gets to spend the rest of the day making a very, very specific sound effect that only the geekiest of the geeks would recognize… so, that works.

  1. Nah, why would I make that sound effect? Iron Man’s coming out, so I’ve been ear-wormed by that famous guitar riff instead.

    Sadly, I know exactly what the effect is you’re referring to…. Guilty as charged.

    The riff comes from Hell Above Water.
