This is a poll designed so you can answer a question on the cult BBC sci-fi program Blakes7. Good Luck.

I voted for bthe general feel of the programme. I thought the low budget look worked well in the context of a programme about a bleak dystopian future.

For me it's neither of the first two on its own. I vote for the story line but I mean the general story line and the philosophy behind. I cannot strictly determine characters' development from the story line.

It was a close call, but ive gone for the story lines.

They managed to make 52 epsiodes each with its own stand alone story but it is great how the plot of the entire four series develops over the epsiodes. My favourate sub pot being the story of the federation and its conquests throughout the galaxys.

this poll did have a 4th option but it didn't appear so i'll just leave it at three now.

Yeah I agree the way they maintained the story threads without overwhelming the individual episodes was very good. Too many SF shows have collapsed beneath their own arcs (X Files, Roswell, perhaps even Farscape) but B7 never suffered from that. You can still enjoy the stories from the 'search for star one' arc as individual dramas.

TYPICAL COMMENT!!!

"Well now," - Without any good CHARACTERS there wouldn't have been anything worth following in the series, in the first place!!!

i went for the general feel but to be honest i love it all especially certain characters Avon also the stories arnt half bad either ive read the scripts to most of the episodes and i think some of them work better in that form than on the screen ASSASSINS is a prime example of this...i love the episode but think it works better on paper!

Since there wasn't an option that said:
Storylines and characters,
I voted for characters.
There are some excellent storylines and some hackneyed ones in B7 but the characters bring the stories to life and add something extra.
Also the connection between the characters eg Avon and Vila had some of the best stories and lines.
Avon and Blake had some dramatic scenes together.
Cally and Avon and Avon and Servalan, even Avon and Soolin had some chemistry as well, whic added to the overall enjoyment of the series as a whole.

The interplay of the characters is what keeps Blake's 7 ahead of the competition even today, particularly the Avon / Villa build up after rescue until orbit

The characters. I like seeing how they behave to one another from one episode to the next and they're not invulnerable.
