Nor do I, but I like my media on physical formats. I'm... old fashioned. If I can't spin it on a disc I don't want it. I'm pretty choosy about what I buy from BF these days anyway having flogged my main range collection ages ago. I don't have that much to store.
I would prefer to have it all on physical media but I just had too much of it to store. As BF provide digital copies it was easy to move most of the CD's on to friends or to Oxfam for them to sell. I keep box sets already bought. Anything else I just order digital only for space reasons.
Finished listening to the six stories in the first full cast Blake's 7 series yesterday. Really enjoyed it. Close enough in style to Season 2 to match, but with just enough envelope pushing to make it different. The difference with these and the originals is that although these are individual stories they link more closely than the original's vague quest for Star One plot. These link into each other with cliff hangers and throw up some interesting ideas that could have featured in the series but would have pushed the effects, like dropping Liberator through a planet atmosphere to hide it under water. They have their own ongoing arc that takes them away from Star One and then drops them back onto that mission at the end. So good to hear the whole cast together again.
Hmm. Starquest collected edition for three quid. Tempting. Child-Karl never got to read one of those, but the other two - along with Douglas Hill's work - got him pointed onto the road which lead to Cherryh, Weber, Clarke, and Ike...
I genuinely love the theme. I think it works so well and is absolutely amazing. A bold but effective choice. Especially the extended use in the first episode as it goes over the action for like five minutes.
