Welcome Back Moya!

For any fans of the best sci-fi ever created, the day to rejoice and celebrate has arrived. Yes, your eyes are not tricking you, it has happened.

FARSCAPE IS BACK!

Wecome home moya





For those that dont know farscape is a great sci-fi series that was unfairly cancaled a few years ago, due to the rather shitty Sc-fi channel company wriggling out of a contract.
They promised to pay for serie's 4 and 5, but only paid for one, then split series 4 into 2 parts to pretend it was 4 and 5.

To make maters worse, it ended on a huge cliff hanger, with loads of plot threads let open. Jim Henson planed to bridge series 4 and 5...but the cancelation wrecked that.

The Jim Henson company, that make the program, were naturaly pissed but they couldnt do anything..contracts,money ect.
A huge campagn to save the program was started by fans...easily the biggest tv program campagn ever (you should see www.savefarscape.coms budget).
Three times actualy protests about the programs canclation appeared on CNN.

It seems the combined effort of fans and the Jim Henson family (who, in another story, recently bought back the family buisness's) has paid off.

I have always wondered why i havn't ever heard of this "great" series before you started talking about it... perhaps it is called something else in denmark.

More details at:
http://www.watchfarscape.com/news/ar...php?newsid=463

Looks like www.savefarscape.com is going to continue as a promotional organisation to help the new miniseries (and to increase the chance of further continuation).

The BBC are also reporting it:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/cult/news/cult/.../19/8094.shtml



Thinking about it, this is a really powerfull demostration of the power of the internet. An internet organsation of fans bringing back a show from the dead.
Not the first time though, Dr Who fans got a few official Flash-films made by the BBC (with good voice actors and such).

But naturaly its easier to make Flash films then a million$ an eppisode series

ok, heres a very cool site:
http://www.imagecreative.net/

Check out those ultra-cool images!

Its the make-up/prosthetics company that helped do farscapes charecters. Look at there "whats new" link, and they have confirmed they are working on new creatures for a Farscape miniseries.

Now, thats absolutely every source connected to farscape has confirmed it expect the actualy main company

Notice also, they are boasting about Farscape...its all over their site.
Yet they hardly mention another small project they are doing.
star wars eppisode 3
