Yeah, a web series? Sounds dodgey to me.

I have to say that the universe and the stories while great fun weren't that clever. I loved the actors doing those roles more than anything else. Now if this was LEXX, then it'd be a different story…

Still, Farscape OWNS pretty much any other SciFi series I've ever seen. Thank GOODNESS for grown up stories and dialogue- even if they do substitute “Fuck” with “Frell” at least they have the balls to actually mean “fuck”,\; in most other SciFi even if they did actually ever say fuck they'd really mean “Oh oopsie!”.

i love lexx. that show was hysterical. 790 rules.

it was the cast of farscape that made it so good. i bet there was a lot of joking around on the set. it seemed more like fun than work. not sure what they're doing with the webisodes but since startgate is ending maybe they got the cast back. one can hope.

I find this sketchy too.

One of the many bullshit excuses given for them cancelling Farscape prematurely was the expense. It wasn't a cheap show to create.

So why waste that expense on webisodes…

And if it's being done without the expense… how's that going to be?

Of course I'll watch it either way. I love the hell out of Farscape.

The new Battlestar Gallactica uses “frak” pretty effectively too. Best scifi show I've seen since Farscape, even if it's quite different from the original.

BAH. it's gunna be crap

Sci Fi is expanding its online universe as well, adding a 10-part web series based on the award-winning “Farscape,” “Sci Fi Tech” as a companion piece to the site's technology blog, and “Invent This!” which spotlights quirky inventions and their strange origins.

Man, farscape was so freaking awesome. I miss it pretty hard. I don't even watch tv anymore, didn't then, but made an exception for that show. Awesome youtube vid btw.

I loved FARSCAPE… eventually i hope to get the series on DVD… didnt like the miniseries they came out with a year or 2 later as much though… lost a lot of what it had in the series… i doubt i will like the web thing that much either…

I watched Farscape the other night, I forgot how good it was!



How I miss it so. Not as much as Red Dwarf but still.
Please, please, you give me too little credit.
