It has aged in terms of effects but not the characters and stories. And let’s be truthful, the effects were aged in the 70sCaught it in time to set the recorder. UFO as well. That is pretty much my childhood TV. Add in Thunderbirds and Dr Who and you have the full set. Now let me see if Blake's 7 has aged as badly as I fear it has.

do love a rewatch. Cheers Pyan
It was typical ‘no budget’ not very special effects even at the time, but the quality of characterisation carried it, especially the Avon-Servalan and Avon-Vila exchanges (with Orac as Iago).
But that final Blake-Avon confrontation;
“You betrayed us? You betrayed ME?”
I wealth of backstory in 6 words and a twist of fearful anticipation in my gut, even today.
I'm still not over it...I remember the shock, verging on stunned disbelief, on watching the finale for the first time.
There's an episode (season 2 I think) where they are in some kind of facility with these gold objects on the wall. I recignised them right away. They were heat exchanger plates like this (but like I say they were painted gold). It does kind of ruin the moment.Part of the set was made up of the keyboard of an NCR Class 31 accounting machine. As soon as I saw it it ruined the whole series.
