Cynical antihero (and ladies fave) from British scifi series "Blake's 7". This particular scene is a part of my childhood, and worthy of an explanation -so here goes. In 1980 I was on a holiday in Scotland with mom and dad. We stopped for the night in a B & B, and in the morning, all the tenants were crouched around a tiny color TV watching a man clad in black leather zapping ape creatures in a snowy landscape. Dad asked what was going on, and a guy explained that leather dude was a part of a band of rebels, and the planet was a dying artificial world with sped up evolution. The ape creatures were actually what humans would evolve into in many thousands of years.
Eventually watching all of the "Blake's 7" episodes I found out that my childhood memory played a trick on me. We actually watched two joint episodes, and it's the character Tarrant who shoots the ape creatures in episode one, while Avon struts around in his leather outfit in episode two, zapping other monsters that kind of look like carnivorous plants or giant, upright-standing slugs (which I had completely forgotten about). I also distinctly remember seeing red laser bolts. There are no laser bolts in this show; just sound effects and some smoke and explosions.
