Farscape come back! *sniffle* *sniffle*

I finished up the last 5 hours of Farscape tonight — the final episode of season 4 and then PeaceKeeper Wars. And now I'm just sad. So sad. Really, really sad. I already miss them: Aeryn, John, Rygel, Chiana, D'Argo, Scorpy. I feel kind of lost without them. I know there are webisodes on the way, but until then... I don't know. Just sad. Maybe I'll start the series all over again tomorrow. And maybe I should make my fandom official and go to this.

Farscape is one of those shows where it's hard not to come to love all the characters. Even the muppets.

And when you have to stop taking that journey with them, through their ups and downs, it's hard. Especially with John. He's such an an everyman (especially at the beginning). He may be a bright guy, but you can imagine sucking down beer and watching a game with him and laughing and chatting about stupid things until it's way too late at night.

Some of those episodes just tore me right the heck up. Crais and Talyn finally doing the noble thing and dying for it. One of the two John's dying. Aeryn's sorrow over it happening. The death of D'Argo. Zhaan. Poor beautiful, blue bitch.

I screamed at the TV when it ended without knowing there'd ever be a Peacekeeper Wars series.

And I rejoiced when destroyed the Shadow Repository. When they destroyed Scorpius's command carrier. When they won the war.

And, of course, the humor. Oh, frell, the humor everywhere. 1812. The cartoon episode. 'Someone's docking?!' Everything.

I loved this show. I'm glad to see someone else who does.

Of course, I may just be feeling sappy after watching House tonight.

Dammit.

Oh, don't talk about House. I haven't watched it yet since we watched the rest of Farscape instead. I'll watch House tomorrow. I'm hoping Cuthroat Bitch/Amber didn't die, though. She's fun to have around.

I can't even imagine the outrage and devastation among the fans when season 4 ended like that and then the show got canceled. I seriously would have brought out the torches and pitchforks if I'd been watching back then.

Yeah, good old Farscape humor. "E=MC Hammer". I caught that on the chalkboard behind Harvey!Scorpy when he was Albert Einstein. :D Rarely did an episode go by that didn't at least make me laugh once or twice. And some were downright hilarious.

Yeah. The outrage back then was palpable. The Save Farscape campaign swung into full steam to get a season five. For as angry as the fans were, I can't imagine the cast. They'd wrapped shooting and basically been told by Skiffy and the Henson Co. and Rockne (the show runnner) that there'd be one more season. They called them in for one last day and then informed them and then they weren't coming back and they weren't allowed to modify the last episode to give it an ending. 'No money left for principal photography or further editting' or something silly like that.

They were in the process of tearing down and destroying Moya's set when the Peacekeeper Wars was greenlighted and they had to rebuild it.

I'm glad you enjoyed the show. It was something unique.

And now I just watched House and I'm sad all over again. :(
