Re: Farscape... I am liking this series...

The weirdest thing for me regarding objections to Farscape's puppets is simply how universally Yoda is beloved. There really aren't many more mainstream space opera aliens than Franz Oz's space zen master, and here's puppets made by the same company and, in the case of Rygel, giving every bit as good (if not better) animatronic performances... so what's the deal?

FX in particular, with their male-skewing audience, should being doing more sci fi.
Timothy Olyphant is John Crichton...


Henson could continue the storyline with Crichton, Aeryn and lil D, with everyone aged about ten years (just right for the kid to be a full fledged character now), still interacting with the same menagerie of species and empires.
That could work for us, that is, fans of the original Farscape, but surely by this point if they were reviving Farscape they'd want to also appeal to people who've never seen the show.

Really, either a remake, or at least a series that adds another human character with more up-to-date pop culture quips might be needed.
