Big Finish Classic B7 Release

The team is all here and this is an episode apparently parallel to one of the TV episodes, which I’m sure I saw way back when but I do not recall, that’s for sure. I enjoy the interactions of the crew, the theme song still gives me chills, and everyone seems to just fall back into their roles quite easily. Menacing, brooding, idealistic – it’s all there! We actually got to hear the philosophy behind what Rog Blake is trying to accomplish with the Liberator and the crew – liberate the galaxy. The Federation is a presence and the duplicity of Servilan is in full bloom here. I think this would be extremely fab for anyone who remembers (or has recently watched/rewatched) the original episode but it was just really good for me but more in a vacuum, which made me wish I had watched the episode recently more than anything.
