One of the "substitute people"
Can I substitute for Kirsten?
Fans will return to the Farscape universe in an original Web series, set to be released on SCIFI.com. The 10-part series is executive produced by Brian Henson and Robert Halmi, Jr., and produced by The Jim Henson Company in association with RHI Entertainment. "The series will revive and expand the beloved Farscape universe," according to the network.

No word yet on just which actors or characters will be involved in the project, or just when it will arrive. After being unceremoniously cancelled after four seasons, the critically-acclaimed Farscape (starring Stargate SG-1's Ben Browder and Claudia Black) returned in 2004 for the 4-hour miniseries Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars.

The show is one of several new original programs in development for the Web site, which boasts itself to be the world's largest sci-fi entertainment Web site with more than 3 million unique visitors each month.

I've never heard of Farscape. I've heard of, and even watched, Stargate SG-1. I know the general idea behind it. Is Farscape similiar, or are you only mentioning Stargate because of the actors?

What's Farscape about?

My affair with Stargate is odd. I *like* Atlantis. For the most part. I *hate* SG-1 with a flying passion, but I *do* like Vala (or I did used to like here when she was more fun) and Cameron Mitchell, but that's because they were the main characters on "Farscape". SG-1 is a little too dry for me and I really dislike Amanda Tapping. Now that SG-1 is over, they're shoving her off on us who watch Atlantis, so I am NOT looking forward to the new season because of her. They may lose me on this one.

"Farscape" is one of the best put together shows in sci-fi history. It's fun, irreverent, smart, snarky, intelligent and every other positive word you can think of. Basic premise--a scientist (John Crichton) is set to launch from the space shuttle to do an experiment using the earth's atmosphere to achieve additional speed to aid in space exploration. A wave hits just as he's getting ready to conduct the experiment and he's sucked into a worm hole, a portal to another universe, and spends him time trying to adjust as well as get home. It's a learning experience as well as a time for personal growth and understanding. He learns how to be a leader, think of his feet and even falls in love. "Farscape" isn't just smart and fun, it's a love story and a story of friendship. I highly recommend it.

Wow, that totally went over my head. I only saw it 1, 2 times. when it was reruns on FOX. I think. Didn't it have the guy from MacGyver on it?

That's interesting. I don't know if I could watch that though. I tend to not understand sci-fi. The only show I liked like that, was the very short lived (3, 4 episodes) Century City. It was a sci-fi/legal show mix. I loved it. But, no one else did, apparently. I HATE THAT! lol
araestel From: araestel Date: July 21st, 2007 03:36 am (UTC) (Link)
LOL Yeah, the MacGuyver guy used to be on it. He was on it for uh... 8 or 9 years and then went to "occasional". He showed up 3 or 4 times a season.

Don't worry--if what I said was over your head, you'd *hate* SG-1. Farscape is smart and fun. There was this one episode where they changed places with each other, like Aeryn suddenly held John's consciousness. It was funny and irreverent. I love the show so much cause it was just so different and not pretentious. They could poke fun at themselves and we'd all love it. It's a special kind of show.

I don't think I even remember the show you mentioned. But my memory isn't what it used to be either. ;)

That's cool.

Century City was so short lived. 4 episodes I think. That killed me. It was about a law firm in the future (like 2400 or something) and all the new, crazy high tech cases they had to deal with. That was where I discovered Ioan Gruffudd. He is gorgeous! lol

OMG is this true? *shock* I was such a huge fan. I even had Farscape action figures...lol..
araestel From: araestel Date: August 21st, 2007 01:14 am (UTC) (Link)
Yep! It sure is! I've got my doubts that Ben and Claud will be involved because she's preggers again and dropped out of an NBC show and Ben's doing a miniseries. I can *hope* they will, but I just don't know.

I kinda get the feeling now that scifi knows they made a mistake canceling the best damn sci-fi show on tv. ;)

Well that sucks, those two made the dam show! For me it won't be worth watching then. =( I loved them this year when they where on Stargate.
araestel From: araestel Date: August 21st, 2007 03:52 am (UTC) (Link)
I'm not a stargate fan and could barely make it through the shows, sadly. But I watched because of them--specifically, Claudia/Vala used to crack me up.

I'm still hoping they might find a way to become involved.
