OMAHA, NE – Farscape was an ambitious creation for the SyFy Channel. The SyFy Channel was known for just rerunning older scifi material and they wanted make their mark, they wanted to push the envelope and that was what we fans saw in Farscape. The production was quite ambitious as far as production values, special effect, make up, sets, talented actors and crew. Farscape actress Claudia Black remarked that Farscape was probably the most ambitious project Australia had ever seen at that point. Producing the show in Australia saved lots of money and allowed that money to be put into things that you could see directly in the show, the sci-fi sets and makeup, the alien looks, as well as Farscape’s signature puppets from the Henson company.
One of the most ambitious things about Farscape is the writing, and fans of Farscape got to know a loveable show rich in great acting, compelling stories, exquisite plots with some of the most memorable characters, heroes, villians and aliens science fiction every saw on original television programming. Who can forget such wonderful creations as Rygel, D’Argo, Chiana and Zhaan as well as the DRD’s, Moya, and Pilot? Farscape also had a quirky sense of humor. Farscape has been over for a number of years, but it will live on!
