SPOILER ALERT... There may be spoilers in this post, so take note of the subject and beware!
We have just received the press package direct from Sci Fi for their January programs, and of course, that means confirmed summaries of the January new episodes of Farscape.
As previously reported, the new Friday schedule sees Farscape moved back to its original timeslot (for seasons one and two) of 8pm, followed by Stargate SG-1 at 9pm which leads in to the all new original series Tremors at 10pm. Suffice it to say all parties will be watching the January ratings very closely. Anyhow, on with the titles... read at your own risk.
Friday, 10th January 2003 @ 8pm - New Episode!
Season Four continues as the Moya crew finally gets to Earth, 1985. Unfortunately, Crichton discovers that he has somehow disastrously changed the course of time - his father Jack is now slated to fly the doomed Challenger mission. Lying low in Crichton's hometown, the "aliens" use the timely Halloween celebrations to remain (almost) anonymous, while Crichton tries to revert the timeline - in the process putting his younger self in mortal danger.
For those interested, the BBC keep their summary for this short and sweet: "Crichton finally returns to Earth, but due to the time distortion effects of the wormhole, finds himself trapped in his own past."
Friday, 17th January 2003 @ 8pm - New Episode!
The crew returns to Moya - in orbit around modern-day Earth - to find Jack and a contingent of Earth dignitaries waiting for them. The aliens are introduced to an amazed and aprehensive public, but soon find life in the public eye difficult. As Crichton tries to readjust to life on Earth, his relationships become strained, especially with Aeryn. Meanwhile, a monstrous assassin is sent by Grayza to hunt for Crichton.
Friday, 24th January 2003 @ 8pm - New Episode!
Chiana purchases Talikaa (Paula Arundell), an abused slave girl from a passing trading ship. When the crew starts acting strangely and Talikaa disappears, they realize she may not be as innocent as she seemed.
Friday, 31st January 2003 @ 8pm - New Episode!
"Mental as Anything"
Scorpius takes Crichton, D'Argo and Rygel into an advanced training camp where students learn mental discipline. D'Argo is confronted with the arrival of Macton (Blair Venn), the Peacekeeper who murdered his wife, Lo'Laan (Rachel Gordon), then framed him for the crime. When Scorpius forces Crichton into torturous anti-Scarran training, D'Argo must face the demons from his past ... alone.
Don't forget that we need to get as many people as possible watching these episodes - in the eyes of the network, and most other TV parties, it's ratings numbers that matter, so it's essential to keep spreading the word and working on the Save Farscape campaign to get people watching these episodes.
