Farscape back as 10 part web-series

Taken from gateworld:

http://www.gateworld.net/news/2007/0...eturn_in.shtml

Farscape is coming back with the Henson production team and will be released as a web-series on scifi.com.


With Dead Like Me getting a movie and possibly second series, it looks like it is a decent time for show revival.

As much as I'm happy with this news, I really wish these web-isodes could be downloadable instead of streaming-only. I rarely watch anything on my computer as I'd much rather feed it over to the TiVo.

Not that I've heard. I think only Amanda Tapping is making the transistion. They are both going to be in the dvd movies though. Claudia is also going to be on a new show called Life on NBC (I believe) and Ben is working on a Odyssey based mini-series for Sci-Fi.

Sci-Fi is ordering up a whole batch of "webisodes" for it's current (and a few past) shows. I wouldn't expect much from them--and from the way they're talking about "expanding the Farscape world" I think it means there are minimal if any characters from the original.

It will probably be a prequel covering the adventures of Braca and Noranti.

Shit, I had to look up those names to remember who they were!

I'm still holding out for the Jool and Jothee Variety Hour.

A web series? Why not do a direct to DVD series like B5 and Stargate?

I absolutely love Farscape ; however, I just have never had any interest in a series of 'webisodes' for any of the shows I watch. I especially hate it when ongoing TV episodes of a show seem to depend on some knowledge gained from the webisodes shown during a hiatus period.

I somewhat wonder what the motivation is behind doing this after all this time since Sci-Fi screwed the show over so much the first time around.

Looks like they will just be short episodes:

UPDATE: Because there is a lot of speculation about this, I double checked with Sci Fi, and the network confirmed that each episode of the "Farscape" Web series is projected to be a few minutes long. They are not going to do 10 full, 44-minute episodes for the Web. Each episode will be a few minutes long.

IIRC, "Webisodes" have always been only a few minutes long. People were expecting 45 minutes each?

I have never watched PPV before, but that's something I'd pay for.

I would totally pay for that too.

I would love more Farscape, but I am not sure about this news it seems a bit strange. I don't even like webisodes. will likely check it out anyway, because god help me I love that show so much.
