[06.23.09] TV Guide's TV's Best Male/Female Duos

This week TV Guide is testing your knowledge of various TV Sci Fi couples. Check out the quiz here. Kind of interesting that John and Aeryn are the only couple who are pictured showing affection towards each other. Wonder why that would be?

In addition, Farscape Season One DVDs are included in Farscape Canada's Summer Sale! Check out the merchandise page for more details.

[06.12.09] Ten of the most appealing characters on TV

It has been a busy week for Farscape in the media world. This week John and Aeryn have been included in the list of the ten most appealing characters on TV.

I especially liked the comment: "This is one of those couples that stand alone as well as together, and that makes them amazing."

[06.10.09] TV's Top 100 Episodes: Farscape #82!

The SciFi series fine-tooned it's quirky rep with this animated outing, in which a comatose Crichton did mental battle against Scorpious."

Okay. So it was Harvey. But yay! for TV Guide ranking Farscape on the list.

In addition the Farscape Canada Merchandise page is now able to offer some speciality covers for collectors of the Comic Book series "The Beginning of the End of the Beginning". Three photocovers for the first series, and a Challenger Cover (only 500 were ever printed) for the first issue. Don't miss it!

[02.17.09] 'Farscape' Boom!Studio’s #1 Comic!

Farscape is Boom! Studios’ #1 comic series, according to the company. The first issue sold out and was reprinted, and Boom is going back to press with #2, which also sold out.

We asked what that meant for numbers, and heard back from CEO Ross Richie. “Including nearly selling through on the second print, we are cresting 20,000 total copies of the first issue,” Richie said. “The second printing of #1 is three quarters gone.” Those sales include all channels.

Rockne S. O’Bannon, who created the Farscape TV series, is scripting the comic, which he’s calling “Season 5” (see “O’Bannon Scripting Farscape Comic”). Farscape, which has not had new episodes since 2003, remains a potent licensing force with a loyal following.

[01.27.09] Fan Survey about Future Farscape

Recently a thread at the Farscape forum Terra Firma discussed the fact that 2009 is the tenth anniversary of Farscape's debut. So that got the Mods at WatchFarscape thinking - if a collector's edition of Farscape were to be released, what would fans be most interested in and what would fans like to see in Farscape's future?

With those questions in mind, the Mods at Watch Farscape developed a survey to distribute to Farscape fans. If you have some friends in your address book that are 'Scapers, make sure to pass it out their way.

Follow the link: WatchFarscape survey

It's short. It's sweet. And it's important.

Thanks for participating!

[10.09.08] Interview with Brian Henson

A nice interview with Brian Henson by A Gypsy Life Productions. Velma Carter (CEO of AGLP) is a huge 'Scaper and we can always rely on her to provide us with Farscape news.

After watching the interview, I am going to say that the 'next chapter of Farscape' that Brian is working on is not the webisodes. Brian does say that whatever it is will be something we fans will start hearing about in the next few months. So it can't be the comics either, since not only have we heard plenty about them but they will be released by the end of November.

I hope it is a Farscape movie.

[09.14.08] Boom!Studios Farscape Comic Update

Wondering about the latest on the Farscape Comics? Well, wonder no more!

Here's the latest info passed on from 'Scapers that have been keeping their ears to the ground.

BOOM! Studios' Farscape comics are available for order NOW and will be in your hands in December! So, contact your favorite local comic book shop to order yours. (If you don't know where a close one is, check here: Canada and US Comic Shop Master List)

The order code for the first edition of the Farscape comic is SEP083803 and there will be three different covers. If you order from a shop where more than 25 comics are ordered, a 1 in 25 variant cover is also being distributed, meaning that they'll get one special cover edition.

The first comic will be sold separately, but it will be possible to order the second, third and fourth comics at a reduced rate. Boom!Studios even has a deal where you can order both covers for those collectors among us. Check it out here.

Now here is the trick 'Scapers. The more of us that pre-order from various comic shops around the country, the more likely those various shops will order the series for other customers. So make sure you order yours today. As we get more information, we'll send out new updates.

Feels good to be campaigning again.

[08.29.08] More Farscape Comic News!

Keith DeCandito put on his LiveJournal Blog:

"It'll be public when Diamond's Previews hits comic shops tomorrow anyhow, so I may as well talk openly about it:

I'm scripting the upcoming Farscape comic book miniseries from BOOM! Studios, from a detailed plot by series creator Rockne S. O'Bannon. The series, which was announced at Comic-Con, as was Rockne's involvement, will pick up where The Peacekeeper Wars left off, and see Moya's crew head to Hyneria to try to get Rygel his throne back.

The comic will also be consistent with the upcoming Farscape webisodes that will be on SciFi.com.

I gotta tell you, it's an absolute thrill to be writing Farscape again, and doing it with Rockne makes it even thrillier (I just made that word up). We're hoping this is the first of many miniseries.

Issue #1 of the miniseries (the title hasn't been finalized yet) will be released in November, with all four issues coming out monthly, and a trade paperback coming likely next spring. The art will be by newcomer (and huge Farscape fan) Tommy Patterson."

then he said:

The script for the first issue of the Farscape comic (that issue is entitled "Return of the King") is done, and just awaiting Henson's final okay. I just tonight finished the script for #2 (entitled "Dungeons and Dominars") and sent it off to Rockne for his notes. (The titles for the other two issues are "Yes, That's Our Baby" and "Hynerian Rhapsody.")

[08.06.08] TV Guide Canada names Farscape One of the Best Sci Fi Shows Ever!

TV Guide Canada compiled a list of the top 10 Sci Fi Shows ever. (Of course there are 12 on their list - but who is counting?)

Four years after Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars was aired, and five and a half years after its ignominous cancellation, Farscape is still making the list. Nothing that Scapers didn't know already of course.

Check out the article Best Sci Fi Shows ... Ever.

Or more specifically, check here.

[08.05.08] Boom! Studios at Comic Con

After Rockne's pre-recorded announcement about scripting the Farscape Comics, Chip Mosher a staffer from Boom! Studios talked a little bit about the timeline and whether they will tie into the webisodes. Read all about it in CCI: Boom! Studios.

[07.27.08] Farscape Comic and Webisode News!

There was a big Farscape announcement at Comic Con on Friday, July 25.

Check out CCI: Rockne O'Bannon on BOOM!'s "Farscape" Comics and Rockne S. O'Bannon To Write Farscape Comic.

To summarize: Boom!Studios announced that Rockne S. O'Bannon would be writing the Farscape Comic, the comics will be canon and it will take place right after Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars. Not only that but they will be available by this November!

In addition, The Scapecast Episode 60 has an interview with Matt Gagnon, Managing Editor of Boom! Studios where he lets us know that the Farscape Webisodes will tie in with the Comics.

Finally we get some hard news!

[06.15.08] Farscape on Blu-ray DVD!

It looks like Sony is finally moving on the rights they have for Farscape. Amazon is asking for people to sign up for notification when Farscape will be available on Blu-ray DVD. The more interest shown the better, so sign up today!

If Farscape ever gets a Blu-ray release, I will take it as a Sign From God to finally buy a Blu-ray DVD player.

All this activity in the Farscape Universe (webisodes, iTunes, comics, Plush DRD, Plush Scorpius, new Farscape Classic CD) and now the page on Amazon (and Target) suggests that good things are happening for our favourite show.

(Sign up at both Amazon and Target. It can't hurt. Might help.)

[04.19.08] Holy Frell: BOOM! To Publish Farscape Comic!

Read the official press release here or here.

By the way, Farscape placed in the "50 Greatest TV Shows of all Time". Check it out! Excellent work 'Scapers. Even after all this time, Farscape still makes an impact.

[03.17.08] Happy St. Paddy's Day!

In an additional cause for celebration, Farscape Season Two has been released on iTunes!

Unfortunately Farscape is still not available for purchase to Canadians, so don't forget to drop a note to iTunes politely requesting that Canadian viewers deserve a chance to see Farscape as well. You can make your request in the iTunes Feedback Form.

Just remember, in the comments section be very, very clear that you are making the request FOR CANADA. They get thousands of emails and read them very quickly, so you need to make that point clear.

At this rate, iTunes should have the entire series by summer, just in time for the webisodes.

[02.23.08] iTunes articles in News Archive

Two articles announcing the introduction of Farscape Season One to iTunes have been added to the News Archive. Also added a link to A Taste for Blue and a link to a site that breaks down some Farscape Languages on the What is Farscape? page.

Plus, don't forget to drop a note to iTunes requesting that Canadian viewers get Farscape as well. You can make your request in the iTunes Feedback Form.

Just remember, in the comments section be very, very clear that you are making the request FOR CANADA. They get thousands of emails and read them very quickly, so you need to make that a point.

Now that the writers strike is over work can resume on the Farscape Webisodes. New Farscape coming soon!

[02.01.08] Wanna see Farscape on iTunes in Canada?

Now that Farscape is available on iTunes to American customers, it shouldn't be too hard to get it here in Canada too. But we need your help. Please make your polite, yet enthusiastic requests here:

iTunes Feedback Form

In the comments section, just be very, very clear that you're making the request FOR CANADA. They get thousands of emails and read them very quickly, so we really need to be clear. It would be great if new viewers in Canada who showed interest in Farscape could download "Premiere" for $2.00. And then PK Tech Girl. DNA Mad Scientist. Durka Returns... You get the idea.

Good luck 'Scapers! It may be your request that tips the balance.

[01.29.08] Frelling Finally! Farscape is on iTunes!

In a move guaranteed to warm up those cold winter days (and nights), The Jim Henson Company has announced that Farscape Season One is available on iTunes!

The Jim Henson Company Launches on iTunes

"On January 28, the cult science fiction series Farscape in its first season entirety (all 22 episodes) will be available on iTunes. This is exciting news for die-hard Farscape fans who no doubt know how difficult and expensive it is to find the complete first season on DVD. Season one includes the enthralling premiere episode of this ground breaking sci-fi hit that made extensive use of CGI, prosthetics, and state-of-the-art puppetry - courtesy of Jim Henson’s Creature Shop."

More information coming soon!

[01.26.08] Happy Groundhog Day 'Scapers!

I know it is a week early. However I really sympathize with D'Argo this year.

[01.23.08] Update of the JHC Farscape Webpage

The Jim Henson Company has updated the official Farscape Webpage.

As well as an episode guide, a character guide, image gallery and press clippings (all about the webisodes), they also have posted a podcast entitled Farscape At Comic Con 2007! Brian Henson and Craig Engler discuss the latest developments on the upcoming Farscape Webisodes.

Check out The Jim Henson Company Farscape Website. It is a beautiful update.

[01.17.08] News Archive Updates and Understanding Farscape DVD Releases

The News Archives have been updated with all the exciting news about the Farscape Webisodes. For a complete review of all the information that has been published check out the News Archive.

In addition, many new viewers have expressed confusion about the various DVD versions of Farscape on the market. So tamarok from Frell Me Dead has developed a page that should clarify the situation.

Hopefully.

At any rate for those who would like a simple explanation (or any explanation at all!) of the eccentric Farscape DVD releases, check out Understanding Farscape DVDs.

Happy New Year 'Scapers!
