Farscape: Peacekeeper Wars

So, if I had been a regular Farscape viewer (I watched, but it wasn't must-see TV for me), I think I'd have pretty mixed feelings about the Peacekeeper Wars movie. On the one hand, I appreciate that SciFi bothered to give the fans some closure, but on the other hand, it felt like they were racing through plot points, and the sense of finality on certain endings seemed to make it pretty likely that they're not planning to do any more for the show, and that PW was the swan song.

Besides, I didn't want D'Argo to die. Yeah, I know, several characters have been near death or killed repeatedly and brought back, so there's nothing to say that he's forever dead, but given that I don't think we'll see any more of the show, it's pretty final.

Also, I was miffed that Zhaan wasn't in it. They could've at least stuck in a flashback or something.

Fortunately, Crichton was vintage Crichton.

Pickings sure are slim for new sci-fi this year. *grumble*

I was a farscape junkie so I was glad to see the last hurrah. I was so disappointed when they canceled the show! I agree it was hurried, they could have made more than 2 episodes! And some of the effects were really below par for a show that has awards for it's special effects. Guess that's the difference when working with a Hallmark budget! I was also a little irritated by Chiana. The character was very flat and her body language was almost forced. Dan and I kept saying "is it the same actress? She sounds like the old Chi but she acts like she's, well...acting!" It was almost distracting!

All the same, I'm glad they did it. It did tie up the loose ends. Oddly, for the sake of the story line, I think they had to kill off D'argo. They brought back Jothy to save the day and they couldn't leave the whole Jothy/Chiana/D'argo thing hanging there. In the end, everyone is either happy or dead with the exception of Scorpius, who's left something of an enigma, as usual. I'm content with the ending :)

I read somewhere that Henson is dead set on doing a feature film in the future.

That would be nifty, but can they? I don't know what their current status is between sale from Disney, and given that their focus is on Neil Gaiman's Mirrormask right now (not that I'm complaining), I'm thinking such a feature wouldn't be coming any time real soon. Still, we can keep hoping. :)
