Peacekeeper

Posted on Monday, October 18th, 2004

Dave!One of the pitfalls of being a television junkie is the risk of getting attached to a show that gets mindlessly cancelled. It happens far more often than it should because networks are just too trigger-happy when it comes to showing their viewers a little gratitude and respect. One such casualty of the television landscape was Farscape on the Sci-Fi Channel. This time it was especially gutting because the show's writers were told that the series had been renewed for another season, but then the order was rescinded at the last moment which left us with a heinous cliffhanger.

In an effort to appease the thousands of outraged fans (like myself) who cried out for blood when Farscape was cancelled, Sci-Fi graciously ordered up a four-hour mini-series to tie up all the loose ends. The result is Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars.

Overall, I have to say I enjoyed the show very much. The pace was recklessly fast... bringing about death, destruction, and a fairly satisfying conclusion to the story. For that much, I have to thank Brian Henson, David Kemper, and the entire cast and crew of Farscape. It's been a great ride, and I can only hope that we get to visit their little corner of the universe again one day.

    Yeah – it’s annoying when they screw around with your sci-fi. I was never really into Farscape (it was messed with too much on Australian TV, so never got a proper chance), but was REALLY into Babylon 5.

    B5 was originally planned as a 5 year story arc, but they were going to axe it, so the story was rushed to end at season 4. They ended up doing season 5 anyway, but it was ruined… season 3 was the peak, for sure.

    BTW, I should introduce myself: I’m Kirk – I found your site via Kazza.

    Funny. That’s how I found your LiveJournal as well. Kazza’s blog must be a universal point for international blog relations or something!

    I enjoyed B5 a lot more once Sheridan came on board, so I agree that season 3 was terrific. Everything kind of derailed from there, so I stopped watching. I never bothered with B5-Crusade.
