I'm kinda glad Zahn died. She was getting superfluous. Same goes for Stark leaving (who, without Zahn, is pretty pointless). Along with destroying Talin and Crais, it looks like season 4 can start with a clean slate. I wouldn't mind if they ditch Chiana, too.
Bite your tongue, GKE! Have you gone completely farbot?! Have you gone freling mad?! I miss Zaahn to this day, the only reason she "died" is because the contacts were destroying poor Hey's eyeballs. Stark had his moments, but I think his leaving was more for story purposes. And you simply CANNOT EVER get rid of Chi! Not Pip! I love her. And I'm a big ole queen! The monochrome bitch is the coolest.

And I have to say here, the more I rewatch the series, the more I realize how much of it was about drugs and the trips caused by them. Most cool.

Re: Farscape Returns

Stark annoyed me.

The rest are too good. Crais was my favourite character, and I loved Tallin. That made the end of season three very sad for me. In fact, it's an absolute spine-tingle moment.

Re: Farscape Returns

Chiana and Rygel counts as "too good" in your world?

That's a scary place.

Re: Farscape Returns

The thousands of Farscape-fans and their never-ending campaigning in the US (and other places) for a return of their fav show is the primary (if not only) reason for this miniseries seeing the light of day from what I have read, and I want to pay tribute to those fans (some of whom might also frequent these forums). Brilliant job, guys!!

And being a big Farscape-fan as well as a fervent B5'er (Farscape is my 2nd favourite sci fi-series after B5) I am of course more than overjoyed by this frelling great news! (not the least after the season 4-developments ..)

Go Farscape!!!

Re: Farscape Returns

Frankly, the only side character I really love is D'Argo. I know the Klingon comparison is probably played and obvious, and I'm not saying their the same or it's a rip-off, but I love both D'Argo and Warf because their so epic, so Greek-tragedy melodrama. The tortured big bad-ass warrior. I'm a sap for that kind of stuff.

And I really like Pilot, the only effective puppet in my book. I say that because when he gets mad, it really works. Such a contrast to his usual quiet, respective nature. I love how he calls everyone by their title. Who else calls Crichton "commander?" The voice talent on this character is brilliant.

The thing is, I just really, really like the main characters, Crichton and Aeryn. In shows like TNG and B5, it's the secondary characters that I enjoy watching the most (Warf, Data, G'Kar, Londo) but here it's actually the main guy and chick who are the best. Everyone else can come and go, I don't mind.

To be a bit of a correctness ass, it's Worf, not Warf.

And for those who don't know, the voice of Pilot is Lani Tupu, the man who also plays Bialar Crais.

Re: Farscape Returns

Ok, so I just watched the first three episodes of season 4- what the hell is going on? I am so f***ing confused.

Crichton's in his module long enough to grow a beard before he's rescued by the dying leviathan. He had food, water, and a place to piss that for that long (that beard had to take at least a month to grow).

Now they got a red chick, which is kinda hot, as I do have a major thing red-heads. With Chiana, Sizuki (or what carrot-top's name is) and Jule there, you know this show was created by dudes. But it looks like Jule ain't gonna be around, but the hotness factor is sure to go up when Aeryn returns (unless she's all pregnant).

Why did Suzuki leave the leviathan scavangers, anyway? I forgot.

And where is Moya, anyway? Jule was with them when they dissappeared, no? So obviously they're OK, and then at some point Jule got away from them? So where did that wormhole come from?

Re: Farscape Returns

Now you are making me wonder if I made a mistake getting Farscape on Netflix.



Well, I also have "'Allo, 'Allo" coming, if the Farscape gets too serious.

Well, yeah, that is pretty much the standard reaction to the early part of S4. I actually think that, to a degree, that was what they were aiming for (from people who had been watching). I remember reading that SciFi had exerted pressure on them to try to make the show more accessable to new viewers joining in S4 (they had a new time slot at the time); so they did this whole "trickle the characters back in a couple at a time so the new viewers can be introduced to each of them" thing that really frustrated the existing viewers who wanted to get the answers to "WTF happened at the end of S3?".

Crichton was rescued by the dying leviathan quite a while ago. He had been living on it (and growing the beard) for a few months, IIRC. They ae still hanging around where Crichton had been marooned because that leviathan is about-to-die-of-old-age old, and that area is a leviathan grave yard (that is why Moya was there in the first place; to put Talyn's remains, or what they had of them, there).

Just for the record: it is "Sikozu".
Not that you need to know it (or, for that matter, that I actually know it) but since I have a Farscape calendar next to my desk, her full name is Sikozu Svala Shanti Sugaysi Shanu.

And Jool got reduced to "recurring" status because the actress got a "regular" role on a high profile mainstream Aussie TV show. Also from this month's page on the calendar, Jool's fullname is Joolushko Tunai Fenta Hovalis.

It has been a while since I watched that ep, but as I recall the scavengers were planning on screwing her over WRT her consulting fees etc. and then killing her. The reason she can't just go back to her old consulting job is that they *had* already reported to her organization that she had betrayed her commission, and they seem to view that much the same way as the Narn assassin's guild does in B5.

Never fear, FARSCAPE is a wonderful show, my dear Hypatia. While the first few eps of S4 are strange and at times confusing, it all begins to make sense.

And, GKE, as for the show being created by men? Well, there are hot men all over FARSCAPE, not to mention the main character is a dream-boat and appears shirtless quite a bit. There have also been numerous gay references and moments of innuendo in the show throughout. FARSCAPE was happily a more or less equal opportunity show, run I believe by men, women and IMHO a couple of queens.

No matter what...the show was and still is frelling great!
