OMG!!!! That was soooo awesome. I really feel sorry for Rigel now.
I do belive I have soiled myself...
Did anyone else notice the "To be continued" as opposed to "To be concluded"?
Dude, that's so nasty!
I definitely need to see the episodes that these were based off of, because very little of anything I saw last night made any sense to me. Then again, it could have been the E&M clouding my brain...
Sorry, Farscape gets me excited.
The final two hours starts tonight at 9!!
So does that mean that they are shoving Stargate out of the way to make room for Farscape? That has to give you a little satisfaction.
You have no idea. I eagerly await the rating numbers for last night.
What a geek.
O man. I can't wait for 9. I might end up watching it in the ERRSA office on the big screen.
*has fantasy of Ben in tight pants*
Has a weird urge to save loads of money on my car insurance, in tight pants...
Lol. I can't believe they killed D'Argo.
Not a bad miniseries. It was nice seeing all the characters in action again.
"I'm your daddy!" That was great! I hate the fact that they killed him off. I hate when they kill anyone off, but at least it was in the final episode and he died like a warrior. That was truly a great scene. I loved when he was trying to tell John that he wanted to talk to Chiana. Hilarious!
That was an ending I can be happy with. They really did a great job tying up all of the loose ends. I was really worried that it was going to be done very poorly and cheesy, but I am incredibly impressed.
In an interview with the Visimag website, David Kemper talks about the pressures of fitting his vision of Farscape into a mini-series.
"I originally figured it was a five-year show," says David, "but I was ready for six and seven, and I psychologically knew we could get through seven. I didn't necessarily know where it was all going to go, but I had all the big marching points that I was going to hit along the way."
But one thing was certain ? the mini-series had to be big. "What happened was, Brian [Henson] basically said, 'Look, it needs to be huge. It needs to be an event, that wraps up this chapter, and it has to get us to a place where it feels satisfying that the journey of Farscape has some closure.' So being able to end this chapter was very appealing, because at the same time, we figured that it also allowed us a way open other doors for a potential future."
It hasn't sunk in yet that it's over. If anyone sees me tomorrow just balled up in a corner crying my eyes out, then you'll know that it's hit me.
Today, I cried. Tears of joy for the wonderful ending and tears of sarrow because it was the end.
Heck yeah baby!

Wow. That's incredible. It still blows my mind that they even cancelled it in the first place.
Markus, I know that to you, this is a personal victory- so I say congrats! Hoorha for Farscape!
You have no idea how good it feels to actually be able to say 'I helped get this show back!'. I did the letter and e-mail thing, made phone calls, and of course wore my costume to every Con I could, most of the time being the only Farscape supporter at the event. It added a whole new level of enjoyment while watching the ending, knowing that I had a hand in helping, no matter how small, and I know Jack probably feels the same way.
And while I am extremely happy with the way it ended, I couldn't help but notice a few plots that weren't closed up. While I have no fantasies about it coming back again, I wouldn't be opposed to Farscape: The Next Generation
Just got my copy of PK Wars in the mail!!! Wooooo!!!
