[TriLUG] OT! Farscape Cancelled...
Sat, 7 Sep 2002 16:21:23 -0400
Gotta agreee with T-bear. Farscape rocks...by far the best, and somehwere
along the line everyone can relate to John Creighton (Is that spelled
right?), but DAMN! I watch too much TV as it is! I should be learning how
to take care of my network.

The Sci Fi channel has a way of playing with its lineup and dumping the
best shows. If they dump Farscape, I probably won't bother sitting in
front of the tube on friday nights anymore. I won't switch channels or
anything, but I won't watch TV at all. SG-1 is good enough that if it
is back to back with Farscape I'll make plans to watch both. But it's
not enough of a draw to get me in front of the TV all by itself.
I was pretty disappointed with them when they cancelled The Invisible
Man too. IMHO, Farscape is *the* show that gets me to watch their
channel. Without it, there isn't much reason for me to watch TV at all
(save for Enterprise, wednesday nights on UPN).
As much as I love Farscape, it's no big loss. I just regained one hour
per week to do something more productive. Two hours if you count the
time I sit in front of SG-1 that runs right next to Farscape (and even
three if you count those occaisional nights that I watch Dead Zone with
it, which is not IMHO a very profound Sci Fi series).
