I wonder what happened to those Farscape webisodes announced so long ago?
im guessing like alot of web ideas, they never happened.

Lets face it chances are they would have only have been 7 minutes long, lacking in budget, and rubbish, like nearly every webisode ive ever seen, and I inculde TARDISodes in that as well.
Probably, but you never know.

Rockne S. O'Bannon has commented as recently as February of this year that negotiations for the webisodes were ongoing. But, I'll take anything Farscape-related, honestly. The comics are quite fun at the moment.

Hey, if the Flash can end up as Dawson's father on DAWSON'S CREEK, this was probably inevitable . . . .

She'll be the evil coach of the rival cheerleading squad of uber-bitches.

No, 14 year old girls who were born in 1996 will say, "Ewwwww, chest hair." They all expect their men to be smooth as little girls. Rugged and masculine is out.

Cheerleading. How sad.
It really does seem like in the past decade or maybe more the trend has been more 'girly' effeminate males being featured for actors or even singers.
That's always been true for shows catering to teen girls' tastes. I can recall when I thought Luke was hotter than Han. The definition of maturity is when that opinion flips.

Re: Ben Browder vs the CW cheerleaders

Sounds similar to the show my wife watches, "Make it or Break it," on ABC Family, except that show focuses on competitive gymnastics, instead of cheerleading. It was renewed for a second season, so ABC Family must consider it a hit, which means the CW is probably drooling over their ratings!

It should also be noted that Tom Welling is a producer on the show.

The age groups are probably similar but the philosophy is very different. ABC Family is supposed to be wholesome and the CW goes for the sleaze factor.

Reminds me of how old I feel now that Shiri Appleby--10 years ago the sweet ingenue on Roswell--is now the mother on Life Unexpected. Whatever happened to classic teen dramas like Beverly Hills 90210 where the high schoolers were all played by 30-year-olds?

Isn't she just the girl's foster mother, though?

Not that I've watched that show or anything.

And I thought losing his shirt every other episode was the limit of his pandering.

Claudia Black is taking time off to be a new mommy, and to direct, according to what she said at last years's Polaris convention.

Nah, according to the show, Shiri's character gave the kid up for adoption when she was just sixteen, but recently regained custody of her.

So, yeah, it's weird seeing Appleby playing the "mom" part, but the plot explains why she's only sixteen years older than her daughter.


It's a good show, btw. You should check it out.
