So far just a rumor, but an awful one if true. It would appear some wingnut at SciFi has decided to cancel Farscape. Easily the most entertaining show on that network, and arguably the best SF show on TV right now, the decision is just amazing. Write your letter today!
Update: Fixed the link. Looks more and more true. Browder says "they're gonna take a chainsaw to [the sets]" no later than next week. Co-incidence this hits the fan on a weekend? I don't think so. Let's all show 'em not to dink with rabid nerdy fans. Mention it on your blogs if you have them and Write! Write! Write!

I thought it was bad enough having to wait till next year for a new episode...
I used to get upset about the cancellation of favorite TV shows but it seems to me that TV gets more and more irrelevant every year. There are still a few shows that I enjoy but if one of them gets cancelled my normal reaction these days is "Oh well, there goes another one."
Yeah, they cancelled witchblade and I felt like that. The show had potential, but they "rebooted" the first season, and the second was only about 50% worthwhile.
But farscape is a different thing. It's a lot of fun, and the people that make it really respect and appreciate the fans. I'm very disappointed. There's really nothing else on SciFi worth watching right now, and I won't know about anything new because they cancelled my main "lead" to their network. Dumbasses.
