Is that back on the rails again? [In reply to] Can't Post

I was watching the news about the remake/continuation that Paul Darrow was involved with some years ago until the negotiations fell apart but I hadn't heard that they were still trying to bring it off. Of course, this sounds like a total remake which I don't have a lot of confidence in. It would be very hard to recapture the dynamic that made the original work, I think. And I don't envy another actor the job of trying to reach the Himalayan peaks of snark that Paul Darrow's Avon established. Laugh

The first episode I ever saw was the one where Avon seriously considers throwing Vila off the shuttle in flight to enable it to achieve orbit. I had no trouble at all believing that he'd do it - which was a total contrast to all the sci-fi I'd seen to that point and made it clear that this was not a clean, shiny, or heroic black-and-white sort of show. However much one hates the ending, you have to admit it's memorable...and even in character for the ever-increasingly paranoid Avon. It does stick with you.


"Dark is the water of Kheled-zâram, and cold are the springs of Kibil-nâla, and fair were the many-pillared halls of Khazad-dűm in Elder Days before the fall of mighty kings beneath the stone."
