News From the Upfronts

May 18th, 2010 | Category: Uncategorized

The CW must have just wrapped up their Upfronts presentation because suddenly there’s news from all over that CW has picked up Hellcats.¬† (“Upfronts” is the name for the presentations that all the networks make to their advertisers about their upcoming fall schedule.) ¬† You may recall that this is the TV series pilot that had Farscape alumnus Ben Browder in the cast.

Does this mean that Mr. Browder has landed in a series?¬† Maybe.¬† There is still a possibility that the network may want his character dropped, or re-cast, or perhaps Mr. Browder will have other commitments.¬† But so far the series pilot has succesfully navigated one of many hurdles in making it on to a network’s fall schedule.

Let’s all wish Ben good luck with this.

Farscape Comic Sells Out

January 02nd, 2009 | Category: Uncategorized

Okay, I haven’t even got mine yet, and the word is that the new Farscape comic is SOLD OUT!¬† You can still find some copies at your local store, but the distributor, Diamond Comics is completely sold out.

If you can’t get it in your area, try Farscape Canada.¬† (Things From Another World evidently never received what they ordered, so I’m canceling my order with them.

Not to worry.  If all else fails, It looks like Boom Comics is setting up for a second printing.

Froonium Ricky: How He Spent His Spring Vacation

November 12th, 2008 | Category: Farscape Alumni,Uncategorized

Richard Manning, one of the writers and producers of Farscape, spent his time during the writers strike putting together a little 10 minute teaser for a show.¬† He put it together along with a raft of his friends, as a sort of labor of love — and probably a time killer, too.

I think it’s very well made, especially given that it probably had a shoestring budget.¬† It’s got very clever use of locations, good casting, solid acting, an effective soundtrack, and some good bits of dialog.¬† I found it entertaining and intriguing enough for me to wish I knew more about what would happen next.

Scapecast Interview with Farscape Comic Author

September 09th, 2008 | Category: Uncategorized

In the latest edition of Scapecast, the team brings us an interview with Keith R. A. DeCandido, who is authoring the Farscape story to be told in the upcoming Boom Comics issue.  As noted in an earlier post, these comic book editions can be considered as official Farscape canon, so I think it’s worth a listen for any Farscape fan who would like an inkling of what’s in store for us. 

Look for Season 3, episode 63.  The episodes can be streamed, or downloaded to be listened to later on your computer or your MP3 player.  As usual, I plan to make a brief transcript of the relevant interview some time next week for our members who are still on dialup.

For fans in the know (Farscape Cognoscenti), Keith R. A. DeCandido wrote the third Farscape novel, which is the only one that got it right.  If you haven’t come across his House of Cards novel, and you’re jonesing for more Farscape, then find yourself a copy and immerse yourself in a book that could be considered a lost episode.  Keith is a prolific author of other novelizations from shows, and he was one of Farscape’s earliest fans.  (There are two other Farscape novels, but don’t waste your money or your time on them.  They’re terrible.)

Also in the podcast is a message from Virginia Hey, and as usual, the Farscape Question Of The Week.

Scapecast, a Farscape related podcast has been at it now for three seasons.  I think that means years, but I’m not sure.  At any rate, the folks that produce Scapecast have a solid production record which has endured for an impressively long time, considering it’s all created by volunteers.  My hat goes off to them.
