Watching Farscape Season 1.
 
My order for all 4 seasons + Peace Keepers wars arrived yesterday. I've been watching season 1.

What is it with Sci Fi channel? These idiots have good shows going and always kill them in their prime. First Farscape then BSG.

Glad to see you're apparently liking it, anyway. For many reasons, this is one of my plain most favourite TV shows - probably because it really hits the nail on the head as to what exactly I want from a space opera, especially these days. It really is the whole genre distilled, remixed and gone a little crazy.

One helluva ride, to boot. Enjoy.

BSG wasn't canceled in it's prime, otherwise there would only be two seasons. Sci-fi canceled Farscape because they didn't have the funding for another season. Sure it was stupid but that's how it goes.

I can only echo what Kegg has said. Farscape is a great series, and if you're liking season 1, than you're going to like the rest. I'm not sure if I can put my finger on why I love this series so much. The characters were great, but I think it was just the zaniness of it all. While there are many shows that pride themselves as being full fledged arcs that are "Dark and Gritty" (A phrase that is turning Cliche itself), Farscape had a little bit of everything for everyone.

I've never been so upset at the cancellation of a show. I highly recommend the comics that follow the series.

The worst part about the cancellation is that it was renewed for two years, and then at the end of the first *BAM*

Since that incident I've pretty much expected every show I watch to be cancelled until it's confirmed otherwise, much less stressful that way.

Like with Lost I think a couple of seasons in they had decided to end it at a certain point, and presumably had some sort of deal in place, but in the back of my mind I was ready for each season finale to not get resolved.

I hate to say it, but I'm the same. Canceled until proven renewed.

I see they're coming out with graphic novels. Why does no one make real novels for these series. Firefly also only has graphic novels. And I've only seen a few BSG novels.

Well, I hope you enjoy your Scaping, it's an awesome series. I'm quite happy I bought it myself.....

.....even though it cost me like four times as much money as that :censored: set that's out now. I bought the 4 insanely over-priced individual sets years ago because I thought the series was going the way of the dodo. :whistle:

So, does The Peacekeeper Wars not provide closure?

RoJoHen July 5 2010 03:27 AM

Re: Watching Farscape Season 1.
 
It absolutely provides closure and is a phenomenal ending for the show, but that doesn't mean they can't continue to tell new stories.

And how are graphic novels not real?

Guess I should have said traditional novels instead or real. But the graphic novels I've seen look like like large comic books to me. I've never been an avid comic book fan.

That's what a graphic novel is, a long comic book. :lol:
