Episode 19: Walking Simulator

You see Roj Blake standing in front of you, what do you do?

Chris Boucher is back. Well he never actually left, but he’s back, or something like that. Travis is back too, but he’s gone rogue now, much like Chris when you think about it. First he was doing Terry’s (Servalan’s) bidding, and now he’s going off and doing his own thing without that pesky overbearing boss. It’s Trial, written by Chris Boucher and aired on February 13, 1978.


Show-notes:


2:33 Statler and Waldorf are Muppets.
11:25 Rasputin played Tom Baker playing Rasputin the the 1971 Rasputin movie, Nicholas and Rasputin and Alexandra and Rasputin.
27:48 Vaster than Empires and More Slow is a story about some people and some plants doing some stuff somewhere.
28:24 Looks like there are a bunch of living planets in DC, but I guess Mogo is the main one.
28:49 Destroyer is a new comic.
28:59 The Neverending Story is one of the best books ever written. Don’t watch the movies though cause they suck.
38:25 Bondfinger is Bondfinger?

Episode 3: Disintegrated by Technobabble

Now we see the true danger of technobabble.

We’re continuing along our journey, although perhaps The Doctor has buggered with the show a bit, both our show and Blake’s 7 itself. It appears we have a bit of a timeline discontinuity that somebody didn’t notice in the production room. It’s Cygnus Alpha, written by Terry Nation and aired on January 16, 1978.


Show-notes:


4:10 Strangely I couldn’t find anything, but here’s this forum thread where some people tried to create a full timeline of Blake’s 7 episodes and audios/other expanded material.
5:53 The more you know. There are actually debates about this, so don’t take this as the only explanation out there.
21:18 Wow, I always thought this was based on Hunchback of Notre Dame. Guess it’s not.
