Last Rewatch: 2022/12/28 - 2023/06/13


Plot (IMDb): Astronaut John Crichton, on an experimental space mission, is accidentally hurled across the universe into the midst of an intergalactic conflict. Trapped among alien creatures wielding deadly technology and hunted by a merciless military race, Crichton is on an epic odyssey more spectacular than anything he has ever imagined.

Farcape aired for the first time on March 19, 1999 on the Sci-Fi Channel! When the channel still had a good name! The series was conceived by Rockne S. O'Bannon and produced by The Jim Henson Company and Hallmark Entertainment. Five seasons were planned but it got cancelled after 4 seasons with a cliff-hanger. Of course we all know a 3 hour miniseries was created afterwards to conclude the series in a satisfying way.


Since Farscape's cancellation there were many rumors of a continuation of some kind. A webseries in 2007 and in 2014 it was reported that there was a movie in development. None of this has ever come to pass, although a comic book miniseries was released in December 2008 that was in continuity with both the series and the hoped-for webisodes. There also has been a lot of social media action in the last 10 years to get Farscape back again in the best form possible: a TV show. Using #FarscapeNow. Unfortunately it did not yet resulted in something substantial.


Some 20 years ago I was aware of the show Farscape but in my country Farscape wasn't broadcast at first. It took a few years before this happened but it was broadcast on Sunday at noon or something. It was certainly not the ideal day and timeslot. In my country the first 8 episodes were released on DVD but because I think, due to low sales, it was discontinued. So it was in 2009 or so I purchased the complete set from Amazon and for me it was important it had English subs and till this release, DVD sets with English subs was hard to come by. For the first time I was able to watch Farscape from the pilot episode until the PKW.  Later I purchased the Blu-Ray set which also has English subs b.t.w.


I wasn't immediately a fan of Ben Browder's "John Crichton". The way he portrayed that character annoyed me for a long time. This changed because of Ben Browder's Cameron Mitchell character on Stargate SG-1
