Syfy has committed itself to "reinventing" 'Blake's 7' which was a sci-fi show on the BBC in the 1970s. The series will run thirteen episodes, many of which will be written by Joe Pokaski of 'Heroes'.
Even though this new version is a remake, it may not have to be relegated to an alternate TV dimension as the original show wasn't set in the main Toobworld in the first place. The characters comprising the group known as Blake's Seven were on the run from the evil Federation - this means that they were in the Evil Toobworld dimension. After all, the Federation of Planets in the main Toobworld was a peaceful organization (for the most part.)
It all depends on what details from the original premise will survive this "revolutionary reinvention"........
As the Trickster once said, "Reality is boring, that's why I change it whenever I can."
I'm just "The Man Who Viewed Too Much", and "Inner Toob" is a blog exploring and celebrating the 'reality' of an alternate universe in which everything that ever happened on TV actually takes place.
Most of my theories about the TV Universe come from thinking inside the box and thus can't be proven. But I've never been one to shy away from a tall tale.....
Remember: "The more you watch, the more you've seen!"
