Episode 33: The After Aftermath

Basically every episode after aftermath is the after aftermath.

I cut out a 40 second argument about the introduction this week, can you believe we actually argued about how to introduce the show this week? Ok it wasn’t really an argument, more of a humorous discussion. But anyway, it’s Children of Auron, written by Roger Parkes and aired on February 19, 1980.

Episode 23: Unlimited Travis

Kind of like unlimited Gan but way more dangerous and unhinged.

This week somebody other than Christ Boucher or Terry Nation titled the script, because it’s got like 4 words. Thats 3 words more than the average on this show, so let’s give Blake’s 7 a big round of applause. It’s Voice from the Past, written by Roger Parkes, and aired on March 13, 1979.
