I can't rember life before Farscape...

Rockne S O'Bannon, Brian Henson

1999

TV: Farscape.
Creator: Rockne S O'Bannon, Brian Henson

Encapsulated. Would you recommend this? why?

Because it was a series that took you on a rollercoaster of a trip, threw you in the front seat and watched you scream!

Time and Space: When and where I first encountered it

I saw the adverts on BBC an thought, 'i'll give it a go..' I was so glad i did!

Recollection and revelations

Farscape for me changed me completely, before i was a desparated tired lump of a sci-fi (i'm actually still the same) and now i've grown into the person you see today. It gave me hope when all was lost an really made me want to change the world. The best part of it was that we proved (all us scappers) that if the television companies want to cancel something they had better think twice! me made it happen! how cool was that.

Before this...

Star Wars, Babylon 5,

Star Wars because it was just that good, and babylon 5 because it pushed the boundries of sci-fi and opened the doors for such hits as Farscape...

After This

Nothing!

Nothing can compare to Farscape, although Firefly is pretty good and thouched a little part of my heart....

Click Alert the moderator to this recollection if you see something on this page that breaks the house rules.

Highly recommended
