Re: Blake's 7 given the go ahead by Syfy

Yeah, although the Federation became more oppresive as the series progressed, at least in the first two series there's some evidence to suggest a certain level of civillian oversight and a certain nobility amongst some of the officer class; corrupt certainly, a dictatorship definitely, but ones that at least presented the trappings of democracy (even though it wasn't) Any pretense was long gone by series 3/4.

I always thought it amusing to postulate that Blakes rebellion actually helped Servalan and those like her make the Federation much worse? (Of course the Andromedan invasion probably had more to do with that.)
