picspam #6 (farscape (reasons to watch) part 5)  




the mini-series.

have you ever watched a show that you loved, tuned into every week and tried to get everyone you knew to watch it? and then that show was cancelled? this is what happened to farscape and its scapers. i wasn't part of fandom at the time, i'd watched several episodes on australian tv but never stuck to the show thanks to the usual appalling scheduling done by australian networks, so i can't make claim to the miracle that is 'peacekeeper wars.'



eidelon: "begin again."
john: "fine. for the 89th time....once upon a time there was a boy named john and john was an astronaut. he lived in a far away place called earth which is so far away you've never heard of it. one day when john was out doing astronaut things a big, blue wormhole gobbled him up and spat him out at the far end of the universe. things were looking grim in mudville, till our hero met an amazing living ship, made some nice new friends, and he hooked up with his dream girl. we could've lived happily ever after, but the peacekeepers raped, chased and tortured us for years on end. and two months ago, we got our asses shot off again. this time it was the scarrans, big reptiles, oh! and moya, our living ship, limped her way to your happy planet for a little r&r, because, we figure, it's empty! hey, no one is gonna bother us-"

john: "listen up, strangelove." [john writes fuck off on the chalkboard] "make sure he gets that message."

- - -



yondalao: "are you assassin?"
john: "no, i'm just the guy without a brain. the lion here would like some courage. tin man, he needs a heart. todo here just wants an easy birth and dorothy here, she is just looking for a way home. now we're not going to be here tomorrow so i suggest you take a long, hard look at our broomstick. he is your heir."

- - -

john: "you just made a joke."
aeryn: "soldiers don't have a sense of humor."
john: "you better have my dinner ready when i get back on that ship now."



somehow, due to fan support, the farscape mini-series was financed, written, produced and aired. three extra hours of farscape that shouldn't have existed, but does and ultimately is the single greatest reason for watching farscape.



staleek: "there is no wormhole here."
john: "we're catching the 7:15 to enlightenment. it's just a little late."

- - -

staleek: "this is the source of your knowledge?"
john: "that, and the backs of cereal boxes. hitch up your diaper, big boy; the first time is always the worst."



einstein: "time"
john: "flies"
einstein: "time"
john: "bandits"
einstein: "time"
john: "wounds all heels"
einstein: "time"
john: "rosemary and..."
einstein: "time"
john: "time ends"



farscape is a show so loved that even after cancellation, the fans managed to bring it back from the dead, if only for a few hours. it stirred something within these people to fight for an end, for closure, for a few seconds more of their favourite show, they fought until they won.



john: "you're the closest friend i have."
d'argo: "you could have done better."
john: "nowhere in the universe."

- - -

john: "okay boys and girls, here are the rules. find a penny, pick it up. double it, you've got two pennies. double it again - four. double it 27 more times, and you've got a million dollars and the irs all over your ass. round and round and round it goes, where it stops nobody knows, but it all adds up...quick."



scorpius: "this is insane, crichton."
john: "god! four years on and you're finally getting that."



now, who wouldn't want to watch a show where the fans can achieve that? love this show so much that they want to achieve it so badly and actually do?

the rewatch.

on april 5, farscaperewatch will begin re/watching the series. i'm really excited to watch the series with fellow scapers. there will be spoiler-free discussion posts for newbies, so if you're worried about being spoiled, don't be! join the comm now (to view some members only posts *hint hint*)! :D

the picspams.

scapers make the best picspams and they make them often. the folks at picspammy are probably getting sick of them.

but they are gorgeous and about the best sci-fi show ever made :P so just deal with it and check them out!

The other day I re-watched the miniseries. As i've been without my computer for a couple of weeks, I hadn't seen your picspam. I've put it in my memories, 'cause it's GREAT. Thanks for doing it. I enjoy every cap, every quote, every video... And I remember the day you told me to watch the show. I thought it had too many episodes hehehe Thank god (and thank YOU) I gave it a try.

Fantastic work, thanks for sharing it with us :D
