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

^That might've been it. In the first season, the producers were going for more of an intimate, character-driven, ensemble feel -- somewhat inspired by M*A*S*H, I think, given the use of tropes like Movie Night and the letter-to-a-friend episode. But from season 2 onward, they were pushed more and more into doing high-concept sci-fi gimmickry and big action, so there was less space for character development. (And not just of the supporting characters. Archer, for instance, had several romantic subplots in season 1, but then virtually nothing until season 4.)
