[06.23.07] A New TWoP Recap for Taking the Stone and TWoPs Rewatch: PK Tech Girl
Keckler has just released a new recap for Taking The Stone!
Everybody Must Get Stoned
Check it out, and don't forget to leave Keckler some feedback on the forums. Recappers love feedback.
In addition, our talented poster maker gilliam has given us two posters for the next episode on the Television Without Pity's Rewatch:
Try to guess the inspiration for the second poster. It is as funny as last weeks.
Moya encounters a destroyed Command Carrier where no Command Carrier should be - and it isn't Crais. Deciding to board the derelict the crew discovers that the ship is not as derelict as they thought. In addition it turns out that they are not the only ones interested in the abandoned war ship.

[06.03.07] TWoP Recap of A HIDDEN MEMORY is up!
Couch Baron has just posted his recap of the Season One episode of A Hidden Memory. This is the second half of Farscape's first two parter and is a worthy addition to Television Without Pity's growing accumulation of Farscape Recaps. Make sure that you drop Couch Baron an e-mail and then post your thoughts on the A Hidden Memory thread at TWoP.
I love the last line of this recap: "The episodes that changed everything! How they did not disappoint." Couch Baron did a great job. Can't wait to see what he has in store for us with "Bone to be Wild".
[05.01.07] Updates to the Farscape Canada Library Project
Farscape Canada is happy to announce that our favourite show is continuing to make inroads into various libraries across Canada. Recent updates include the addition of some Starburst DVDs to Calgary, additional Farscape DVDs to Burnaby, Fraser Valley, Okanagan and Surrey (all 12 Starbursts!) and Newfoundland DVDs are now catalogued and circulating.
Keep making formal requests of your local library for Farscape and soon we will have the entire country 'Scaped!
Don't forget that Sony needs to feel some of that famous 'Scaper love. Please write and let them know that 'Scapers want a new release of Season One Farscape. We need to keep those libraries stocked somehow!
Here's the address:
[04.20.07] Send Sony Some Scaper Love!
Attention 'Scapers! This is important. Crossposting Cosmic Theorist's post from Terra Firma:
Now that it can be officially known that Sony has acquired the DVD rights for Farscape's first season, the folks over at the Frell Me Dead forums suggest that we Scapers send Sony some of that Scaper Love that the campaign to Save Farscape was so famous for delivering. Let Sony know HOW much we care about Farscape and how much we want THEIR DVD release to succeed. You can think of it as a way to POLITELY let Sony KNOW there is a lot of pent up demand for MORE Farscape out in the universe.
Remember that DVD sales told Warner Brothers there was pent up demand for more Babylon 5, and WB has responded by producing straight to DVD Babylon 5 movies. DVD sales have also convinced MGM that there is pent up demand for more SG-1 and Dead Like Me, and MGM has responded by producing straight to DVD SG-1 movies and they just announced this week plans to produce straight to DVD Dead Like Me movies. DVD sales have also told Fox to produce more Futurama.
Are you seeing the pattern?
DVD sales for "cult" series are telling BIG production companies that there is MONEY to be made by producing MORE of those "cult" series that "failed" as weekly television series. And NOW, in this business environment, the very big Sony picks up Farscape's season 1 DVD rights from the small ADV Films.
Could Sony possibly be exploring a straight to DVD option for another "cult" series? Maybe, maybe not. But the "Hollywood" business models are FINALLY working in Farscape's favor. And I think we Scapers should do what we can to ENCOURAGE this trend.
I do not know about anyone else, but I am personally feeling MORE optimistic about getting MORE Farscape then I have since they announced the production of the mini-series.
This is what Jul wrote on the Frell Me Dead Forums:
Anybody want to see a Sony-released Season 1 of Farscape?? It's time for 'Scapers to start the "getting to know you" thing that we do best.
Here's the address:
Pass the word!
