    For those of you into Farscape (i'm still getting used to it - thanks to Amy), the mini-series begins Oct 17th.

    For those of you interested in getting into Farscape, Sci-fi is running the entire series in order 8 episodes each day between Oct 1st and Oct 15th.

    I'm finishing up season one as soon as my dvd's get here. :)

    I doubt I'll get to the other three seasons before the miniseries though.

    And just so you know, Chriton is absolutly wonderfully insane :D I think that's why I love him.

    I just finished S1 Ep5 a couple days ago. It's fairly decent so far, but I'm hoping it will pick up shortly, as it hasn't been too stimulating up to this point.

    Can't decide if I wanna try & record all the eps post-Season 1, or just buckle down & keep buyin' the DVD-sets. The darn things aren't cheap...


    I'll probably just have to record the mini-series as well, and catch it after I've caught up w/the rest of the series.

    [sarcasm]Well, let's see now...if they JUST started them TODAY, and they're only showing 8 episodes per day, then there's a REAL good chance that they're in SEASON 1 still...[/sarcasm]

    RDT-you got it...the type of DVDs i need are DVD+R.

    if you just want to buy them...then send them or give them to me. that is fine.
    you can get up to 6 hours on one, but the quality is about that of VHS, you can do 4 hours and it looks great. So either way.

    i'll check the schedule and see when season 2 starts airing and start from there. :)

    i am glad to share the joy! ;)

    Why did this show get cancelled in the first place? It seemed to me that it had a fairly large following. It makes no sense to me. Someone tell me please.

    i guess the same reason angel was canceled . first you take a show that is the biggest draw for a network . then you cancel it . then you keep a show thats crap and at the bottom of the ratings . then you stop making money .


    i get it .

    Actually, on Thursday nights they show 4 episodes of Farscape really late at night. What I watched last night was the next to last season, I think -- [hl=black]where John actually makes it back to Earth with the crew, and they all mingle with the U.S. gubmint.[/hl]

    From what I heard, it was cancelled because it cost too much...A million plus per epi...thats a lot of dough for SFC.

    The series ender was shot as the season ender, hence no closure.

    Capiche?

    Hmm...a million+ per episode?

    That's why each episode was so much cooler than most sci-fi MOVIES. :D

    Farscape had to be one of the best written Sci Fi shows ever. It followed a natural progression of a scientist guy getting lost and then coming to accept his situation. And having to slowly change his views on everything.

    If you guys are only in season 1, sit back and enjoy it gets much better! I personally found season 3 the best. But 2 picks up the action and leads into an amazing season finalle series. ( Farscape never had a single season finale I think, There was always a growing Arc that ended with a clifhanger.

    Season 4 to me was slow, but Definately worth watching.

    The strange thing about the cancellation was that Season 5 had already been approved. All the fans had been expecting that it will proceed as expected. Then suddenly, as it's popularity was at it's highest, it was cancelled.

    Oh, and I too want to get a costume done, A peacekeeper Commando to go with these:

    Pulse pistol: http://www.photo.net/photodb/photo?photo_id=2115686

    And custom leather Season 3-4 Holster: http://www.photo.net/photodb/photo?photo_id=2116248

    that holster is a piece of artwork. And was a migrane to my friend who made it. Took almost 4 months of researc and 4 prototypes till he was happy with the end result. And I gotta say, it was more then worth the price!!!

    So how did we like part one of the Peacekeeper Wars?

    As I suspected, it picked up exactly where the end of season 4 left off - I suspect it is going to be everything they wanted to do in season five crammed into four hours.

    Not that there's anything wrong with that. It's great to see the show again anyway.
