For Farscape fans in Chicagoland and the Great Lakes area.

Finally Webisodes. Sort of.

From Tubefilter News comes the word that Ben Browder will appear as Nick Naught, in “Naught For Hire”, a new web series that will be … uh … broadcast — or should that be *webcast* –  on the web beginning this December.  Based on a novel called “All for Naught”, the series begins production this summer, and will consist of thirteen 6-minute episodes.  The show features Nick Naught as a noir-type private dick, but is set 20 years in the future, where common objects are embedded with Artificial Intelligence (A.I.). 

There is a fun, interactive website, where you can sign up for email updates (click on the file cabinets), and you can also follow the show’s Twitter feeds.

In preparation, I will be listening to my old vinyl LPs of Firesign Theater’s Nick Danger: Third Eye (When Two Aren’t Enough), and Garrison Keiler’s Guy Noir stories. 

Young hipsters may also want to check out the originals:


Sam Spade in The Maltese Falcon, and Phillip Marlow in Murder My Sweet.
