Do you mean its unusual to Farscape fans?

I've seen the first few episodes of Farscape and I have to say I didn't care much for it. It might have had something to do with muppet aliens who fart helium. :S

But Claudia and Ben are both great actors and I'm sure I will come to love their characters in SG1 just as much as Jack, Sam, Daniel and Teal'c.

Fargate is not a good name at all for my favorite show. I have never got into Farscape because it is to looks to fake. You can tell that they are human people in a plastic Holloween costume that our parents used to make us wear. That is what made Farscape suck. It is a good thing that Vala and Mitch can act because they are turning out to be living up to farscape fans expectations that I heard about giving them a chance taht they succeeded at.

So I think Farscape not and welcoming them into our little stargate world that is not farscape at all.

Yawn... This whole Fargate crap is a bit boring now.There have been ALOT more Star Trek and X files actors in it than Farscape actors, but people don't make stupid comments about that...

I find the Asgard far better done than any alien that was ever in Farscape. Actually, to be honest Stargate is the only show where I have found the aliens belivable.

I too only watched a few episodes, so it doesn't bother me in the least. The characters are both pretty different, especially Vala.

How is it "Fargate?" The actors play different characters...that's why they're actors! No one called it "MacGyverGate" because of RDA, so why should Browder and Black being on the show suddenly make it "FarGate?" Is it "StarTrekGate" now because of Trinneer and Picardo? Or when Blaylock was on? No! I don't understand this whole "Fargate" thing. :confused:

Farscape was my favourite Sci-Fi show, with Stargate in 2nd place, until Season 9 of Sg-1, and Ben Browder is one of my favourite actors. I think it is great to see Ben and Claudia back on tv and they have helped make Stargate great again. I have to say i never thought of Claudia as Aeryn when she showed up, but Ben will always be John Crichton cause it was such an excellent character.

I liked Farscape. It took a while to grow on me. It looked kind of campy to me at first, but after a while, it didn't bother me because the character relationships and development were both top notch. The acting was also quite good from the entire cast. If you can't by the visuals of the show, you're missing out.

Now, when it comes to SG, I liked the casting of Browder from day one, knowing that he was a great actor from having watched Farscape. I had no issue with Claudia Black either because she did such a great job in Prometheus Unbound. Say what you want about the episode, but she was outstanding.

LOL.That would be entertaining. I could see aeryn chasing after Vala with a pulse rifle,teehee

As far as this whole Fargate thing...I think that all scifi acting roads lead to stargate in some sense. I like seeing the familiar faces.

To those who said that they dont like farscape:

Farscape is something that you have to let sink in. The first few eps were not my favorites, but once you get past those and begin to see the characters develope, it is pretty darn good. Claudia Black does some amazing stuff in it too.

yeah but don't you think it is a little weird that two main characters in a popular Scifi show somehow got on to another really popular Scifi Show. what are the chances? I mean that's rare in Non-Scifi shows, but in scifi that's like a 1 and a 1,000,000 chance AT LEAST

The Asgard are either CGI or puppets. The point being that noone complains about the Asgard puppets looking funny or fake or cheesy.

They are animatronics or something like that. And if not then what are they and what does that have to do with nobody being inside of them? No one complains about them looking funny, fake or cheesy because they don't look funny, fake or cheesy.

I'm a huge fan of Farscape. Always have been. But I don't see this as Fargate at all. This is still Stargate SG-1, the great show it's always been. BB and CB are playing quite different characters IMO, the way it should be. Both shows are great examples of quality Science Fiction. My two favorites, actually.:) But SG-1 isn't becoming like Farscape. Not that I see.

Did you just knock Sparky?







At any rate. Mitchell is similar to Crichton in a lot of ways, but that's mostly Ben working his sense of humor into the script. Much the same way Richard Dean Anderson worked a lot of MacGyver's witty remarks and general "silliness" into Jack.

Vala is completely different from Aeryn. Those two characters are worlds apart. Other than the fact that we're going to see Vala turn from a completely selfish thief into a more caring and selfless character. The same way Aeryn went from a no-nonsense conscienceless Peacekeeper into a deeply emotional and loving person.

Aris Boch
July 18th, 2006, 01:25 AM

Sorry. Ive got to draw the line somewhere.
Muppets. yeah. dunno. :S

Also, before seeing Farscape I had seen the Triangle which I believe is by the same creator. That showed some promise but really just seemed to ramble on and go in all kinds of directions and left me with more questions than answers. I got the same kind of thing when I tried to watch the episode "Back and Back and Back to the future". Farscape was also a little too...um...cheesy for my tastes. And by a little I mean a lot.
Sorry. Just my opinion. No offence to all the Farscape fans out there.

I'm a huge Farscape fan but I have been a Stargate fan for much longer. I've never considered casting two lead actors from FS a threat to SG. It's actors doing a job. And Claudia Black and Ben Browder are two great actors with a lot of passion for their work and respect for their fans.

As for FS's aliens. Do they look fake? Well, of course they do! Have you met an alien yet?
But they're unbelievably imaginative aliens - Pilot, Namtar, the diagnosians,... The Henson Group and Creature Shop tried to make aliens as far out and weird as possible which is something I greatly appreciate.

Totally agree! Claudia and Ben are two great actors! And they didn't do this on purpose that they will be on the same show again. It's not "Fargate" just because of them playing together again!! :mckay:

In Farscape, there were four 'main' characters played by people.

Ka D'Argo - Played by Anthony Simcoe in the show, played in '200' by CJ
Chiana - Played by Gigi Edgeley in the show, played in '200' by AT
John Crichton - played by Ben Browder in the show.
Aeryn Sun - Played by Claudia Black in the show.

So unless BB and CB are going to play some of the puppet characters:D, they will just be playing the characters they played in the show itself.

Should be interesting...

True 'Ben as Scorpy' has been done already on Fascape, I wouldn't mind any of these conbinations:

MS as JC and BB as Stark
