GUIDE LOVES FARSCAPE
December 17, 2002: It's no surprise to anyone
who loves Farscape that TV Guide is a big fan of the show. In their December 21st issue
(the one with Santa Shaq on the cover) Farscape gets mentioned several times. With
pictures and everything!
Matt Roush is largely
responsible for much of the great ink Farscape gets from TV Guide. Click Here for an
address you can use to thank Mr. Roush for his continuing support.
The first mention is on page 3 in their "Don't
Farscape Marathon (SciFi Channel, 8AM / ET) This 11 hour blast recaps the episodes
that aired last summer from the fourth (and now final) season of this wildly
entertaining series starring Ben Browder - our pick as "Best Hero in Outer
Space". New episodes, wrapping up the season, begin January 10.

IN OUTER SPACE
John Crichton of Farscape: He's the coolest dude with cosmic 'tude ever to be lost
in space. But who'd have predicted that irreverent astronaut John Crichton (Ben Browder)
of Sci Fi Channel's fabulously fanciful Farscape would become a martyr to the bottom
line? Fans across Crichton's home planet howled in protest when the show was canceled.
Third mention - The week's top shows - by Matt Roush
Farscape (SciFi Channel, 8AM / ET) Of this season's first 11 episodes, all being
rerun in a daylong marathon (8AM-7PM/ET), the most enjoyable may be the action-packed
hour titled "Lava's a Many Splendored Thing." This flat-out avdventure strands
the space heroes on a barren planet where they must rescue Rygel from a lava pit while
avoiding monsters and combative aliens. It's all great fun, reminding us how much this
show will be missed when its final season concludes this spring.
And last but not least...
Tues 8AM SciFi
Return Trip Fans of the otherworldly action series have an opportunith to review
the latest labyrinthine plot twists in this marathon of hte fourth season's first 11
episodes. Although Farscape won over critics, it had less success with its ratings, so
this fourth season, which resumes Jan 10, will be the last. These episodes run in order,
beginning with "Crichton Kicks," in which John Crichton (Ben Browder) teams up
with the (sexy and shady) Sikozu (Raelee Hill) to battle pirates. Other highlights
include the two-part "What Was Lost," in which crew members fall into a
frightening trap, and "Promises" in which they reluctantly team with their old
for, Scorpius. (11:00)
