Just say the rumours aren't unfounded this time and B7 could come back. The question would then be - should it?

The money would be better spent on making porno, again.

If it can be done right the way DW was, then I say OK.

Whoever produces it, must stay true to the original, plus updating a little couldn't hurt.

Yes, if it's true to the original. What Blake could have been doing in Seasons 3 and 4 would be my suggestion.

If I see another 'Hitchikers guide' style product based on what was undeniably a well realised and scripted epic, if a little 'toilet roll and sticky back plastic' in the effects department, I will be most upset and try to organise a fan uprising*

Blakes 7 should come back as it was, or not at all.

* Reg shoe may even be brought in to sing inspiring folk songs and play his guitar during a sit in, if someone brings a stapler.

I think it should come back but stay true to the original but also updated.(like Doctor Who) I think it could be done successfully in the right hands. Travis

After some deliberation, I'm voting no, as I think it was a product of its time. I would be worried that any attempt to recreate today would dumb down the best parts i.e. the characters and plots, in order to appeal to as a wide an audience as possible.

For someone of your era, you have uncommon qualities of deduction, pna.

I think it should be re-told similar to the way Battlestar Galactica is being done.
