Good to know. Glad it did so well, maybe that means there'll be some hope for something beyond that.

Unfortunately, I haven't seen it yet... wonder when it's airing in Canada, or maybe I should just try and download it.

If you do download it, be sure to pick up the DVD set when it comes out.(Jan I believe)

I just wish their normal episodes were so expensive. I am NOT paying 130 bucks for the show, even as good as it is.

I’ve seen it. It was beyond fantastic. I cannot gush enough about just how much I loved PK Wars. The ending…WOW.

For the first time in my life I will be a peace if they just leave it the way it is. So much has happened, but… if Ben and Claudia never put on the black leather again I will be ok. They really delivered on this one. Thank you so much for PK Wars. Worth the wait.


Because I am an American. And what does an American want? Democracy? Capitalism. I want to sell out and settle down. For one day only, it's a blue light special on Aisle Three. My wormhole technology... and a free set of steak knives... for all the tea in China. And anything you can imagine to pay me... welcome to my cold war.

The news that Farscape, like Angel, has returned to great success is not a surprise to sagacious people such as you lovely examples of fandom posting here.

Just think of it - only a short year ago, we who loved terrific genre productions such as Farscape and Angel were dumped upon. We all know TPTB canceled it, they trashed it, they shat.. nered on it.

Now... we are delighted to see that these productions haven't just been shunted aside. Angel has been asked to come back by the WB (after they fired that guy) ... holy frell! And this success for Farscape too just goes to show that quality TV, and especially quality genre, is far more successful, desirable, and frell just more fun than the usual fanboy blaster crap.

This is great news. Wish I had the Sci-Fi channel instead of watching FX the Series on frellin' SPACE in Canuckland. Jebus save me.

Ah, yes, the DVD. $19.98 from Lion's Gate Entertainment, out January 18, 2005. Woo hoo! You can preorder it at www.creationent.com and even get an autographed photo of one of the cast members.

You can get the season box sets for around $89 with free shipping from www.deepdiscountdvd.com. I've gotten lots of things from them and they're very reliable.

I loved the tribute in FS-PKW to the end of 2001 with Harvey. Got chills when I saw John framed by the Monolith and Harvey's hand lifted...

I think that is why I love FarScape so much - it ALWAYS pays tribute to what has come before.

And thanks fer the "Hell Yeahs"!!! Now off ta dump the USA/SciFi white collar idjits inta the bin!

FarScape Films - HERE WE COME!!!
