The thrilling yet tender speed-chess sequence from the second season of Blake’s 7. It’s the Klute’s only reward; enjoy it half as much as he does
Video Rating: 4 / 5
“This is Atari 400/800 Chess. I used to have it back in the day. That cart cost $40, believe it or not.”
That must have cost the entire SFX budget of this episode
Gotta love The Klute
enna koppa ithu?
In this episode Blake is doing something really important while Avon and Vila sneak down to break the bank
i thought charles 1st was beheaded.
If I remember correctly, I think Orac gets a draw with him
I loved Deep Roy in Neverending Story, I grew up on that movie and I think he was involved with Dark Crystal too, another fave of mine.
love the music
Friltz made a real mess of that. He should have won that easily !!!
I wonder if this was a real game they used or a composition
Deep Roy has had a nice line in evil little bastards. He played an evil doll in Doctor Who – The Talons of Weng-Chiang – where he also used his wicked laugh.
Anyone remember Deep Roy as the blowpipe midget villain in The New Avengers?.That guy is just awesome!.
I suspect so, now that I think about it.
Deep Roy did a few Blakes 7 Episodes as i recall, apart from The Klute in Gambit, he was a Decima in The Web and provided the voice of Moloch.
Bound to be a BBC Micro !
The machine is called “Tolinka”, which is a diminutive of Anatoly – meaning Anatoly Karpov. It was named by Viktor Korchnoi at the World Championship in Manila in 1978.
This is Atari 400/800 Chess. I used to have it back in the day. That cart cost $40, believe it or not.
Deep roy is a oompa loompa in the catcf remake but is the guy speaking at the start the same guy that sings the candyman on the original movie?
They still use deep blue, of course it’s like way more updated now.
Are those graphics on the VIC 20 or Atari 2600?
As I recall from the credits of that series that was the legendary chess computer Deep Dhought developed by CMU and IBM – later renamed to Deep Blue…
So yeah it was high tech.
i love how he just rushes his king to the a3 quare
it is a notation for recording all the moves in the chess game
