Farscape Canceled!!

Daemonik writes, Well, the frellnicks over at Sci-Fi have decided that they no longer need to pay for Farscape when they have such winners as Beyond Belief, Crossing Over and highly rated movies such as Python 2 and Alligator (Plus it’s sequal!!)

Apparently season 4 will be the last. Check out here and here for information about deluging their offices with letters and faxes demanding they pull their heads from their rectums and put Farscape back on the roster. Oh, do be polite and for Chthulhu’s sake, use the spell checker, it’s your friend.

    Say it ain’t so!!!!!
    I read this early this morning and I hope in all honesty this is a very elaborite prank. Why SCI-FI would want to kill off the best show it’s got I have no clue. SCI-FI channel’s linup is beginning to look more and more like the Horror channel line up, and John Edwards…don’t get me started.
    Farscape is about the only reason I actually pay for cable. It’s the one show a week I mentally make sure I catch. I guess I’m holding out until I actually see something on SCI-FI.COM before I really start to get angry.

    Stargate SG1 as well?
    IMDB shows SG1 ending in 2003…so maybe they’ve been cancelled by those SciFi channel scum as well…not too many reasons left to be watching that channel I guess…

      Simple math Farscape goes then Sci-Fi channel goes.
      The only reason i paid the extra money per month for the Sci-Fi Channel was for Farscape. And since i was already watching Farscape i would catch a couple of other shows. But hey no Farscape no need for Sci-fi channel.

    It’s Official

    The Sci-Fi Channel has confirmed what we’ve all dreaded.

    Perhaps a little cheese with their wine…
    “Unfortunately, despite our best efforts to reach a broader audience, Farscape has been unable to grow beyond its core fan base.”

    Sci-fi almost by definition is a nitch market. How big do they expect the fan base to grow? I don’t hear the Lifetime channel complaining that their shows aren’t reaching a large enough male audience!

    “That, coupled with the extreme and growing cost of production”

    Perhaps they should consider cutting back on the production costs then? Don’t get me wrong, I love the special effects, but what I really admire in a good sci-fi story is, well, the story. Give me a good story and I can overlook some cheese in the special effects.

      I don’t think they are giving us the whole story here. I think that quote should read “That, coupled with the extreme and growing cost of production we were running out of money to purchase reruns of The X-Files which can be seen on FX.”

    Not that it’ll make much difference to .au
    Because, despite being filmed here (that blue-sprayed eucalyptus foliage is a real give-away), we never got to see more than the first couple of seasons…. And then only begrudgingly; as long as there wasn’t something important happening. Like a lawn bowls tournament.
