Which B7 title sequence was the most effective?

Damn it I accidently voted for 3, when I meant 1 & 2!!

The series 1 & 2 title sequence is pretty inventive, & establishes a few key points, such as which one is Blake & that he is to be eliminated etc etc

Series 3 is alright, doesn't say much though

Series 4 is pointless, & does not relate to the programme at all!!

"Well now," - I went for S1 & S2 titles. S3 is OK but, as for S4 what a waste it should've had something to connect it to that season which, it didn't!!!

1-2.

The Liberator is more dramatic in 1-2 than in 3. When Liberator has to go in 4 the title sequence doesn't give anything away by showing the Scorpio instead. Nobody would change that theme tune though, even if it's a pacier version in the season 4 closing credits.

I liked the series four titles, they weren't to ambitous for the budget and technology available unlike the first and second season efforts that were very stop gap comic stylee.

Ho hum the minority vote for me as usual.

The S4 titles have no point at all, they might look pretty to you (I don't think so) but they serve no purpose. A sequence establishing the loss of the Liberator & Blake going missing would have been more to the point.

I didnt think anyone really cared about Blake by that point, Liberator maybe but not Blake, everyone knows Avon was a far better leader simply by encouraging people to be like him / out fox him to survive.

Yes it might have been more to the point but it probably wouldnt have sat well with the budget department, series four titles may have looked like they belonged on a ZX Spectrum with its rubber keys but at least they must have been chaep.

What was the title of the sereis again...oh yeah

The animation in the 1+2 series credits was a cut above some of the wobbily model work seen during the series. EDIT: The S4 credits were surely animation as well though? & Not of the computer kind.

The title of the series should have been 'Avon's Avengers' or Avon's moderately effective rebels.

Down with blake! let the internal rebellion against the rebellion begin!!

" Avons Anarchists "

Steady on lad, it was a BBC production from back in the day, they didnt do sex of anarchy back then, even swearing.
Wow, explains a lot of low ratings really.
