OMG, I can't believe it! :crybaby:

Farscape is easily THE best sci fi show on TV imo. I have been a fan since day one and own numerous DVD's. I have signed the online petition. I am too upset to write anymore. :(

The end of season 4 will be shown starting in January (11 episodes, all but 1-2 in the can), but the sets will be torn down in the next several days unless people show their discontent and help get it saved.

And XERXES, as for your "thought it was gay" comment,...
You obviously never watched it for more than one episode. It's one of the coolest shows on TV. It's got space, drama, space, character development, sex, intrigue, sex, comedy, oh,... and did I say space and sex?!?!

The biggest drawback has been its low budget. It would have been nice to see more space battles between Moya and the Peacekeepers, and/or Moya and the Scarans

I never watched it so I dunno if its good or not.

Yes!!! Go Sci-Fi for dumping that terrible show.

Heck, if want to watch the Muppets I'll watch re-runs of the Muppet Show with Pigs In Space.

Farscape also had the worse voice over-dubbing ever.

Hurray!

I saw Farscape a couple times. Didn't think it was that great.

i could care less about sex this sex that in farscape, its a TV show and its gotta be censored etc etc, and i get teh sex IRL(in real life, for you acronym ppl) anyway.

And yes i have seen 3 or 4 episodes, it just doesnt seem believable. Everything looks fake, the alien person on the ship is a damn muppet. I dunno it just doesnt go with me. For real IMHO (no stupid ima ho comments, sheesh) Farscape is GAY x eleventy billion.

...now only if they would bring back Saturday Anime.......

you wana know why it is being taken off the air?? cause nobody watches it, compared to other shows...wether you like it or not, thats the truth. They dont play shows that dont get a lot of viewers. :o

I don't think anyone in here has EVER respected xerxes opinion!;)

All those who are saying if i wanted to watch muppets etc etc, well what do you think half the creatures in star wars are? Jabba the Hutt for example, was one giant muppet!

Ok, you don't like the show, fair enough, each to thier own but WTF is the point in coming into this thread and dissing the show when this thread is intended to recruit people who DO like the show to help save it?

:rolleyes: *#%*#@

It worked for me. But I already think Farscape sucks. :p

Farscape:

Game = Cool.
Show = Boring.

In my humble opinion.

I don't really care for the show, but it seems so popular. That's why its so puzzling that its being canceled.

I've never seen it and never will, due to me living in Denmark, but since Lexx likes it very much, I'll happily sign the petition...

i know it sucks but XERXES is right.

Viewing figures are all that tv execs care about
they dont care about the quality of the programs they are putting out

I would sign it if they replaced the main character dude, he simply can NOT act. is his name john or something, I dunno, apart from that geezer, its not bad, especially that grey girl ;) Oh yeah while we are at it get rid of that thing with massive eyebrows, he's like a mutant dennis healey. Otherwise the show is very good.

XERXES
09-08-2002, 06:15 PM
the atmosphere in the show isnt that great too, i mean yea Jabba was a huge fake thing (not a MUPPET! he was made with plaster and other rubbery materials, muppets are faberic etc etc) but the atmosphere Jabba was in, his henchmen all with him, he was all moist looking, it was just believeable. Just face it guys, Farscape sucks, thats why their takin it off the air.


Petetion to bring back Saturday Anime....sign in this thread:D

warm regards,
XERXES

Anime you say eh? That can only mean...

-Mechs
-Huge eyes
-Small mouths
-Little girls with tight butts and 2 inch skirts covering them
-Wicked energy balls
-Hair-do's that looks like they've been cast in gel
-Gelly hair that is somehow transparent so you can amazingly see the eyes beneath it
-Some epic, cataclysmic storyline involving a grandiose sibling scandal that'd make Luke, Vader and Leia pee in their pants
-Guys with long hair that shake whenever they're talking
-People screaming like little girlies

:rolleyes:

I say we start a new petition to put the Muppet Show on Sci-Fi.

The old men on the balcony were funny and the Muppets were more convincing than the Farscape puppets.

You know, you really are gonna have to come up with a more convincing reason as to why you hate Farscape (not that I give a rats arse about your opinion). Just because Henson did the characters doesn't mean they are classed as Muppets (The Muppets btw is the best kids show EVER).

How many (edit-GonkH8er- shhhhh :)) animated rubber characters were in Star Wars? Ewoks, Cantina Band etc etc etc, the list is endless! :rolleyes:

I'm sooooo glad you don't like the show, I'd worry about myself if you did!
