Re: Blake's 7 given the go ahead by Syfy
I'm cautiously optimistic on this project, whoever they get to replace Paul Darrow as Avon (assuming this version has an Avon) is going to have some big shoes to fill.
Getting people to watch Blake's 7 in the states is going to be an uphill battle since the average Sci-Fi fan would probably see it as a Firefly rip-off (ignoring the fact that the original show has been around for decades prior).
Well I always said Firefly was a Blakes7 rip off so I may have beaten some of them to the punch.
However given that it is SyFy remaking a British Cult Classic I have low hopes. Especially after AMC's "Prisoner in name only".
