Do you know what I hate most about Farscape?
When it ended!
Seriously though, I’m never pleased when a show I like ceases to have new episodes, and Farscape definitely falls into the category of “show I like”. The show literally WAS the Sci-Fi channel to me back when they spelled the station name right! We’d been together for years! We’d laughed together, cried together, awkwardly tried to do homework/make food during commercial breaks together!
Then out of the blue: CANCELLED. Or NOT RENEWED. Whichever. Either translates equally into “No show for you!”
Sure, we eventually got “The Peacekeeper Wars,” but after the sting of Farscape’s sudden and unexpected departure, even reveling in that was tainted by a sense of finality. It was well meaning. It was good. It wrapped most things up pretty well and gave us all a chance to enjoy our favorite characters again…for the last time.We tried not to think too much about what could have been.
But, I guess we got closure?
Enough reminiscing though! There’s good news!
Farscape cast members Anthony Simcoe (Ka D’Argo), Gigi Edgley (Chiana), and Paul Goddard (Stark) showed up to Dragon*Con this year to share their experiences on, before, and after Farscape’s televised reign! Favorite lines revealed! Casting calls discussed! Post-Farscape careers laid out for all to see! Australian accents galore!
You know it’s going to be a great panel when the guests refuse to sit down. When they go so far as to push the table out of their way entirely…you know you’re in for a treat!
Take a gander and see for yourself!
