    I think I just had some funny feelings in my pants.

    I don't know of that site's credibility, but, just reading the story has me running off to TNZ to risk making my palms hairier and endanger more soldiers :alienblush:

    MASTURBATION = Wounded Soldiers

    Damn, too late, my shorts are already stained :alienblush:

    If this is true, I may just weep incredible tears of joy. If this is false, someone is getting skinned alive for toying with me.

    So, some of the best and some of the worst episodes. Could go either way, I guess.

    Farscape movie? They're calling it Guardians of the Galaxy. ;)

    Seriously though, that'd be potentially really awesome.

    Good news, but I'll believe it when my ass is in the theatre seat, and even then, not until the movie starts.

    Will follow this news, assuming there is more, with earnest interest.

    Didn't they say there was going to be a web series at some point as well? That never materialised.

    I think the 2007-8 Writers Strike iced the webisodes.

    I'm not sure how I feel about this rumored movie starring their teenage son. It makes it sound like most of the original characters won't be in it...

    No, web series oddly enough is OK, it's how we got the Dr. Horrible movie because that didn't break the rules.

    Never going to happen, just like the web series, there is not enough money in Farscape.

    Wikipedia:

    At the Burbank 2007 Farscape Convention in November 2007, Rockne S. O'Bannon stated that the webisodes would likely be released in 2008. Farscape star Ben Browder told SCI FI Wire that he looked forward to reprising the role of astronaut John Crichton in the webisodes. The 2008 writers' strike put a damper on the plans, and Browder said that it was too early to figure out to what extent he would be involved. Browder said that he had a brief discussion with Henson about the Web series at last year's Comic-Con International in San Diego:
    “ They haven't come to me with any specifics yet, and I don't read anything into that. But at Comic-Con, Brian discussed it and said, 'Yeah, we're still figuring it out.' The writers' strike happened immediately after that, … and a lot of things went on hold, and it will take a little while before a number of things get going again.[18]

    Unless I've misread, all that article says *in passing* is that a writer is working on a script for a Farscape movie. That's not exactly what I'd call a "movie in the works". For all we know it's something he's just going to try and pitch at a studio, nothing more.

    Don't believe it and also don't see the point, Farscape story is over and it was a dam good one.
