Well lets look at it like this. jurrasic park had dinosaurs. genetically engineerd dinosaurs. flintstones had dinos too. it's a cartoon turned live action, similar to rodger rabbit, and it is a fantasy cause we know enough science to know that there was no such thing as a modern stoneage family. Unless we have a nuclear war and we all live likeMad Max perish the thought. Bladerunner was a dismal future but i'll take it over the Irradiated wasteland.(back on topic here) I mean who in their right mind would peddle-power a 2 ton boulder car down a highway? whats more, stop it with their feet? Or eat Brontosaurus Burgers? Or work in a rock quarry with Dinosaur Cranes? The whole thing is nothing more than a cave man version of the Honeymooners. ergo it works.

Liar Liar, this one is Iffy. Remember it too is a fantasy story, because wishes dont really come true over blown out bithday cakes (Or do they? Hmmmmm) and thats what the story was about. his dads a Liar (Lawyer says the teacher) he lies for a living to get people off. He's even lying to his son, and his dad misses his birthday party cause he was Frelling his Boss, and his son made a wish that his dad couldnt lie for 24 hrs. the Wish idea throws it into the fantasy realm. like the movies or not, they do fit the profile of sci fi's criteria.

Now the mental capacity of most of these tv show/movie people they see dinosaurs, and say OH Sci Fi, Sci fi, because of the distance of time they lived relative to us, and that there are none around today (That we know of) That you either have to build a time machine and go back to then, or genetically engeneer one. and Liar Liar i think they put on there for the Mundane Significant-Others (chicks and dudes) who dont appreciate the realm of the imagination as much as the rest of us do, have something to watch if they surf in. or are forced to watch, or want to watch it just cause it's Jim Carey, the dude does have a following, even though he is viewed as the 21st century Jerry Lewis. Never could stand Dumb-Eemas...

Are you Tinked?
Oh Sure! Why not Ben Stiller as Chrichton and Joan Cusack as Aeryn?
No no NO! gotta be the real deal. Who would want Brad Pit as John? Comon? Linus from oceans 11? Louis from interview?! Are you frelling serious? Get outta town! fast. Brad pitt cant act, and cant controll his private life. the poor bastard has his life plastered all over the wrag-mags. Whats next? Angalina Jolies Baby isnt brad pitts at all But a Space alien from a planet called Hyneria!? Sure Rygel would be Proud if it was a boy!
But for the Love of Chalnak Use the original cast. they know the characters better than the writers do. and what just cause some schmoe producer thinks a hot guy that makes the girlies wet will sell a sci fi/space opera movie? not nesscessarily. I think Ben is a sharper dude than Brad Pitt is, a hell of alot funnier, and a more realalistic actor than pitt.

No frelling way!! That woulda been Like Casting Jack Nicholson as Captain Kirk in Star Trek, While i think Jack coulda pulled it off, prolly better than Shatner (Jack is a better actor) You still have to use the original dudes. Remember this media form has been a big circuit for really good trained specialist actors to make it into main stream siver screen oppertunities. most of the cast in FS was realativly unknown save Ben and Claudia, ben for party of five and memphis belle, and claudia had a few small roles in a few movies (Pitch Black, Queen of the Damned) But did alot of guest appearances on t.v. for bit part episodes for Herculese, Xena ect. Oh Sure they were popular but very campy and very Hoakie. A greek legend Live action Version of the Flintstones.

As for a Movie? Look Theres not a Doubt in my mind that if there is to ever be a farscape movie, You can Bet your Meevonks that Brian, David, and Rockne are not going to listen to what ideas some stupid back lot stage 3 set producer demands. It's their story and they are going to tell Their Story, not someone elses. They can always pull a Peter Jackson and Film in New Zealand, Or Shoot the Film and pay the cast for their work on a voucher, or pay the cast outright, and take it to a studio after it's complete. They have mastered Gurilla Filming, with their harried shooting schedule. My hats off to em for thats alot of work in a short amount of time. Besides, Also with the work they did in a shorttime, now imagine if they had a two yeah schedule to work out all the cgi and how much more they could add in without heavy time constraints? and theres Pleanty left in the UT to resolve. Rigel getting returned to power, (or not), revenge on Bishan he's waited so paitiently for... and What of Nerri and the Nebarri Resistance and their Cultures plot to take over the galaxy? How will the scarrans and peacekeepers deal with that threat. further divided, or more unified with the Eidelons in tow? And everyone wants to know if D'argo Survived. It's The Darth Vader moment. "Luke i am your father" (Is it true or is he lying?)
Could Grunchlik and Sikozou found D'argo in their attempt to flee? That Ghastly-Grotesque seemsto have a conered-market on Diagnosans. With D'argo gone Does Jothee and Chiana's Love reBlosom only to findout that D'argo is alive and yet they done it again yet this time unintentionally? That is so very farscape kind of writing. Just when you think dren has gotten bad enough, Smack! it hits the fan on high and splatters in a Feces cloud of little crap droplets permeating the atmosphere. (Hehe sorry for the visual) I would Love to see what the next chapter is in store for all of us. Rest assured, it will be back in some form or another. Firefly just got one season. it wasnt that great of a show but it got a movie. Stargate was a Movie that got turned into the longest running Sci-fi show in history (Shut up i know the X-files is tied, but not for long) with a Spawning of an Intertwined Offshoot series. We scaper fans made enough noise, and people heard us. because we listened to experiences with trekkies in their campaign to get star trek restarted back in the late 70's early 80's. Brian David and Rockne all love the story as much as we do, and through us gave them enough power to give us a condensed season 5. Peace Keeper Wars really was like a condensed 4 parter like the end of season 4. they and the cast and crew wont forget that, and as long as there is anaudience, and as long as it is profitable, they and we wont have anything to worry about.

The Nebari Contagion.
Rygel retaking his throne.
The Kalish rebellion.
The Luxan rebellion against the PKs.
The inevitable renewable of conflict between the PKs and the Scarrans (and Scorpy's inability to be gatekeeper).

And more interestingly:

Aeryn's ability to see/sense wormholes.
Chiana's ability to play with time and choose the future.
Stark's new ability to contain/control his powers - and how that relates to unrealised realities (see ... Different Destinations)
Sikozu's need to acquire allies for the Kalish rebellion - and the ongoing interpersonal conflict with Scorpy.
John's wormhole knowledge (no the Ancients did not remove wormhole knowledge from Crichton - they removed wormhole WEAPONS knowledge from Crichton - Harvey makes that clear - twice).
Crais and Talyn's untimely demise - Talyn entered a wormhole, and we never did see much of a body.
Unrealised realities and what that means for both Zhaan and D'Argo.

There are a heck of a lot of ongoing threads in this show that I would like to see explored and questions I would like to see answered.

Mostly about Chiana and her relationship with time (which has a lot to do with Unrealised Realities as we know) and Aeryns ability to see wormholes and superior ability to fly them.
God, I love science fiction!

I am hoping with the cancelation of stargate sg1, there will be a chance that farscape returns!

Now they can get both John and Aeryn back! i realy hope there is a chance for that to happen...

If they put it on any channel, can it please be on a local channel, so those of us who don't have cable or dish or anything fancy can still watch it? Unlike Harry Potter (sob, sob), there is a chance for movies to happen and stuff, since the author didn't say that there would be nothing afterwards, and all that that makes me want to cry. For character analysis really quickly, the lady who plays Galadriel should be Zaan, and Harry Potter in ten years should be John. Oh, and the guy who plays Voldemort (sorry that I said the name, but some people don't know who the Dark Lord is. Shameful.) should be Scorpio. Yeah, I'm a HP and LOTR person. Cause they're pretty! So is Farscape. And Soul Suffice....Whoops! Ignore the last one!

There are always rumours. ;)

Check out what Rockne has been saying .... and now gone suspiciously silent ... about something that might be brewing.

Farscape fans have been given hints of something happening to bring us new Farscape. Could these hints mean more Farscape is still in the planning stages? Or does Rockne O'Bannon just enjoy torturing us? (Actually, I think that last question is a given.)

On May 15th series producer and writer Rockne O'Bannon Tweeted “Great conf call with B Henson yesterday, and we're meeting next week. Can't say a word about it. New and exciting. Oops, I said something.

Then on July 3rd Rockne posted this comment: "Big mtg this Weds w/ B Henson, me, and ******* - oops, can't say. Just earliest beginning-but cautiously very excited. Things are a'brewin'."

And then July 8th...: "So yesterday's mtg was AMAZING. Teasing is a form of torture I know - but big moves r happening. BIG moves. (Just call me Stanley Milgram)."

On July 26th from Rockne replying to a question from Kriskitten:

@Kriskitten "are you going to Farscape con?" If what I hope is going to happen, happens - no way I'm gonna miss it!!


You do remember the last time we got teased like this, don't you?

"AGAIN! SCORPY! THRILL ME AGAIN!" Arrrgghh!
God, I love science fiction!
