If they wanted to make more, I'm sure they could come up with something, but I think PKW serves as a fantastic finale.
I think they're doing a great job with the comics (written by Rockne S. O'Bannon and our own Keith RA DeCandido!)

Big and epic, and only getting crazier, the first panel of the book is actually the last scene of Peacekeeper Wars.

Indeed. I have read the first 3 hardcovers of the comics, and so far they're a lot of fun and fit the tone of the series perfectly. I'm just waiting for more of the collections to be released.

Glad to hear the comics are good. Now I just need the miniseries and then the comics and hopefully they will get the web series / webisodes up and going.

Of course before any of that I have to make it through season 4, gods this is bad! I can't stand the new characters they added, I want Maya and Pilot back. It took me several tries to get through that two parter that was pointless, and now I'm on the lava planet episode.... we need a sleepy smilie face.

Re: Exploring the Uncharted Territories: A Farscape Viewing Experience

I agree that the biggest problem with Season 4's start is the absence of Aeryn and Moya. They had to find a way to introduce the new characters, so I think it makes sense to not have them distracted by the John/Aeryn story right away, but it can be a bit rough.

I'm exactly where you are right now, bigdaddy, and while I do enjoy those episodes now, I definitely remember how annoying it was sitting through them the first time around.

At least you can just blow through them on your DVDs. I had to watch them one week at a time. It was over a month before Moya was even back on the screen!

Re: Exploring the Uncharted Territories: A Farscape Viewing Experience

Blow through them? I fell asleep twice in the first half of the two part episode! And once in the second part.

I honestly don't miss Aeryn too much, just Maya and Pilot. The show used to be so great at introducing new characters, and have a great flow of the characters coming and going, like Stark and hopefully Jool (Is that how it's spelled?) and such, but these new characters are just annoying. Plus the new bad guy is a sexy female that can get people to follow her throw sweat... ugh....

Re: Exploring the Uncharted Territories: A Farscape Viewing Experience

You'll grow to like (or at least tolerate) the new characters, I think. Believe me, all of us thought Season 4 had a really bad start when we saw it the first time, especially after how fantastic the last half of Season 3 turned out to be.

It gets much, much better.

Yeah.....that definitely contributed to how much I was annoyed by those episodes. I will say this about them though.......they had one of the most memorable scenes involving Scropy/Grayza and boots that I'll never forget from that series.

Plus, it had me

Yes, cleavage-girl is definitely a step down after how brilliant Scorpy was, or for that matter even Crais.

I love the fact we have a new bad guy and that evolves, but she has no structure to her! Crais was a bad guy because his brother was killed, Scorpy wanted the wormhole, but it's not really clear what she wants from John besides sex.

TV Sex is boring unless the guys are hot.

Even Grayza doesn't know what she wants from Crichton at this point. She just wants to know why Scorpius was so obsessed with him.

Also, this is the first I've ever heard anyone describe Ben Browder as not being hot.

He's too old for me, not bad looking just does nothing.

Plus I said guys, not a guy and a big boobed woman.

I love love love "John Quixote." It's one episode from Season 4 that I constantly find myself rewatching. There is just so much more going on in that episode that you don't really realize until you've seen it a few times.
Same here. I rewatched it yet again the other night. It's still as wonderful as the first time around. Plus...

It also gets bonus points from me because it was written by Ben Browder.

Disc two is already better than the first disc of episodes and I just watched the opening.
