If anyone here has the balls to tell me they didn’t like Farscape from back in the day then I feel I’m in the right to tell you that I have a collection of Gil Hibben knives and am inclined to cut you should we ever meet in person. Seriously, that show was right up there with SeaQuest DSV! Not many sci-fi shows can touch Farscape for originality in scripts and characters, inventiveness and depth in the story-lines. The list of goods things in this series goes on and on. The creativity is virtually unmatched. Did I mention puppets? Ya, it had puppets. PUPPETS! Simply put: one ofthe finest Sci-Fi shows put out on television ever. It was canceled way before it’s time.
Sadly, the show is never coming back, but it’s creator Rockne S. O’Bannon has some news that might excite you. Apparently, he’s got a new television series with SyFy percolating.
On April 16th, Rock O’Bannon twittered this little news tidbit:
Great meeting at Syfy yesterday. New project. HUGE. New series. Very excited. Very, very excited.
Whats this now!? What is this new show? A whole new space opera or the long rumored Alien Nation reboot (which I blame io9 for speculating) ? Don’t ask us. We have no idea. No other details have been revealed on the series. We’re just hoping for something new and original. A new space-based alien series would be nice. It’s very much needed for the station becoming known for canceling quality shows in favor or wrestlers and quirky TV chefs. Give us the aliens and the pew pew. We gotta have it.
I expect nothing but the best fron O’Bannon. It’s SyFy I’m worried about. Whatever the show is, it will undoubtedly be shuffled around the schedule, then canceled halfway through the second season.
