    I found this article earlier today or yesterday, can't recall. It doesn't have anything to do with the FS webisodes, but it is about the expanse into using the internet and webisodes. Which I hope will add to the success of Farscape as a web series.

    3 minute "webisodes" to me is just the dumbest idea. I saw a couple the BSG webisodes and found them to be nothing more than extended promotional videos. 3 minutes is not enough to produce any kind of story. If the story is spread out over a period of weeks, then I have to ask who the hell want's to watch a 30 minute show over the course of weeks when you could just watch it in 30 minutes.

    If this is a test to see whether to bring Farscape back, then fine. But if this is all the SciFi has to offer, well just another reason to hate the SciFi channel more I guess.

    Considering how well Sanctuary is doing and their eps are about 15 minutes long. I'm willing to give the webseries a try. I'm not please that Henson is "in bed" with SciLIE again, but I'll take what I can get when it comes to more FS.

    I prefer to be called Sunny, Sun or SK. Thanks.

    I'm not exactly that pleased about the "reunion" with Sci-Fi either. I'm sure most of us aren't. But, if that is the only way to possibly get Farscape back, I'll learn to live with it.

    Some things have their time in the sun, and will never again be what they were. "Resurrecting" Farscape at this point wouldn't seem natural, and, although I've enjoyed watching the DVD's (I don't think I ever saw it when it was on), I feel that bringing the show back in first-run t.v. epsiodes would make any further stories seem forced.

    "Webisodes" are, by their very nature, short, low-budget pieces. It would seem that the best use of the medium would be vignettes detailing the characters' backstories (How D'Argo met Lo'Laan, maybe, or how Chiana and her brother left their home planet.), or something that shows the main characters several years after the end of PK Wars.

    Have any of you seen Sanctuary? That is not low budget. It is CGI heavy, but that's not low budget.

    I have high hopes for the FS - web series and don't really have a problem with the eps being only about 3 - 6 minutes long. I'm thinking that once they know how big the following is/will be they might make them longer.

    The thing is that using the web for series shows is a relatively new thing and most shows that I know of don't start out as full on half hour/hour shows. Most net savvy folks won't sit on a site long enough to watch a full hour or two hours of a show.

    I have high hopes for the webisodes too. No doubt about that. But in the end, I'd much rather see Farscape return to TV than stay on the Internet. That's just my personal opinion. I'm one that would much rather watch something on television than on my computer screen.

    That is kind of what I am hoping these webisodes are all about. Seeing if there are enough fans out there still to justify bringing the show back full-time.

    I think the back-story idea for the webisodes is brilliant. I hope Henson either does that, or maybe does something a little bit after PK Wars to kind of point us in the direction that the series will go in, if\when The SciFi Channel renews it.

    Personally, I'm kind of rooting for it taking place a little while after PK Wars. I think moving forward is the best way Farscape can continue on. I would love the new show to maybe focus a bit on little D'Argo Crichton growing up aboard Moya in a strange, sometimes very dangerous, galaxy.

    I love the idea of setting it a few years after PK wars. I can just picture the first scene.

    All black and white flash backs to some time of crisis on Moya, John running down the halls yelling "PILOT!" Like he so often did. A quick flash of the peace keeper fars. And then we cut to Little D running down the same hall yelling pilot, but this time in a kiddy voice like a child looking for his favourite toy.

    That would be pretty cool. Either that, or little D as a teenager. Either scenario would open up a ton of possibilities.

    As I sit here impatiently waiting for the frelling webisodes, I'm wondering... I just don't get it. I don't see the logic in bringing Farscape back as little webisodes. PK Wars showed that the audience was STILL there. How many people will watch the webisodes? A few thousand? What will The SciFi Channel learn from that? And the animatronic creatures and the sets are extremely expensive. I see no logic in this. The webisodes might be some lame concept that is Farscape in name only. As far as I know, BB and CB have NOT been contacted yet. It seems to me that if they were going to be in the webisodes, Henson and O'Bannon would need to make sure they were available. Galactica 1980, anyone?!

    Last I heard, I believe BB was approached about them. As for CB, last I had heard, she hadn't heard from anyone yet about them. I think, sadly, it will still be quite a while before we hear any real solid news on this project.

    I've seen it, for all their big budget it simply didn't impress me - I stopped downloading after webisode 3!

    I saw Sanctuary in it's entirely and i wouldn't say they had the biggest budgets ever. Some of it would be beautiful, then other parts would be downright shoddy and look like they came from that old Knightmare show.

    I was kinda bitter they decided to end it on a cliffhanger considering we were barely two arcs in. I guess that was the downside to Amanda signing on to do more Stargate.

    I know they made a big deal about it being an online series, but i don't know why they haven't tried to shop the existing episodes to a network. It was of high enough quality and intrigue to warrant a real season of television surely.

    Anyhoo, any news about the Farscape webisodes yet?

    Nothing new, at least that I'm aware of. By now though, I'm sure they are well into the development phase. Hopefully we don't have to wait too much longer before hearing something. What is going to make this wait so painful is how early we heard about the webisodes. News of Farscape's "return" was let out like a day or two after the deal was reached.

    (Tapping foot impatiently) At this point, it would be great to get an update from Henson or O'Bannon just to let us know how it's going. But, we've waited impatiently before, and PK Wars was SPECTACULAR! I must keep reminding myself of that as I wait impatiently..
