Redemption
6 June 2008 | by ametaphysicalsharkSee all my reviews

Following an attack by two unidentifiable aircraft The Liberator's computers turn on the crew through intervention by the ship's original owners who are controlled by a massive computer named The System.

"Redemption" is a great start to season two of Blake's 7. The show immediately looks strikingly different (and frankly spiffier) than it did in its first season. Some of the model work is certainly impressive considering the budget as is the much improved costuming. What is especially striking about "Redemption" is its cleverly-paced and smart script which is always having fun with the characters and dialogue but never at the expense of the intense plot which picks up right after the inspired cliffhanger at the end of season one's "Orac". Great stuff, and let's face it- could 'Blake's 7 meets killer computers' possibly be anything but?

9/10
