I want another Sci-Fi show that involves spaceflight, aliens, and whatnot.  It's a niche that is currently being woefully underserved.

Tragically, I doubt Defiance will fill that role, being earthbound and whatnot. But it'll have ugly dickish aliens, so there's that. And a videogame.

/this is still why I PVR old shows with spaceships and stuff even though I've seen most of them a million times - I miss the genre. I like big cool space battles, new planets and things going on that we can only imagine. It's tragic that should humanity develop spaceflight for things other than going to the moon or just to orbit, it won't be in my lifetime.

There's supposed to be a SyFy series called Defender that's going to be a 'space opera' but I haven't seen any promo for it.  Canceling SG-U right when it was getting good was a crime.  Supposedly SyFy is also working on some space based desperado/western type of show, which while it sounds like a Firefly rip-off, I'd be happy to take it.

I don't know how I feel abut Defiance yet.  I wonder if it will be necessary to play the game to get the most of the the show, or if the show is just going to end up being a big advertisement for the game.  I'm hopeful for it, but there is so much that could go wrong.

Funny thing about SGU. I stopped watching near the end and then they cancelled it and since TV seems to be allergic to reruns nowadays (except in the case of terrible filler like "Swamp People"), I never got to see them. And then I stopped caring.

I think Defiance will be a piece of crap. I hope not, but that's where it's likely going. Sci-fi is being watered down a lot for mass appeal, because apparently only people who still have imaginations watch stuff like the various Star Treks (not counting the new one, which was a space-action-movie and didn't have anything at all to say about the human condition and thus does not count, and also had a brewery for engineering because fark you that's why).

Society isn't necessarily getting dumber, but our ability to think outside the box seems to be reduced.

Our equivalent channel in Canada, "Space" is starting to show signs of going that way. They recently rebranded all the bumpers and whatnot to some severely generic shiat. The previous logo (a galaxy) has been replaced by an opaque blue circle (like Oxygen?), and the bumpers remind me of the ones i saw on Sci Fi when I was briefly in the states (a flashing red light at a train station going ding ding, ding ding, with the logo inside it evokes strong deja vu).

Space airs this stupid ass show about makeup designers called "face off" and also airs Castle, despite not being sci-fi and only tangentially related to sci-fi because Nathan Fillion.

One day I assume there'll be no more shows with the word "star" in the title. :(

I honestly do think the connection to the Hensons (Jim's son Brian did the puppetry) hurt this show, in a way, because it led people to dismiss it as a kid's show, or at least not worthy of being taken seriously on any level.

I mean, I'm not saying they shouldn't have.  It allowed them to have aliens on the show that were way more, well, alien than the aliens on Star Trek, which often just looked like some guy with something stuck to his forehead and a weird haircut.

Not sure if trolling or serious. Any of the times he was hallucinating was because of the neural clone jammed in his head or extenuating circumstances. And Scorpius was a decent villain. Crais was ridiculous melodrama, Scorpy was a cold calculating bastard.

One of the few errors the show made was having Scorpius get his ass kicked throughout season three and four on a regular basis.  It took away a little of his mystique.

I know some folks here said they couldn't get over the puppets, and I have to admit, it took me about three starts to finally latch onto the puppets and the makeup (which was horrible in season one).  Once I got into it, though, there was no looking back.

I dunno about his mystique, but it did take a touch of his menace away. Still, the beat downs, the torture, the mollusks, and everything else serve to show you that he's still one tough bastard and will still try to manipulate his way through shiat if he can.

Eh, never saw that he hated both sides equally. Seemed he didn't really care about the Peacekeepers one way or the other, they were just a means to get back at the Scarrans. I always saw the smile at the end of PK Wars as the Scarrans got their ass kicked and wouldn't be recovering well from that since they weren't going to be expanding any time soon after that.

I beg to differ. I thought both of the  "Great Power" factions in Farscape ( Peacekeepers/Scarrans) were truly evil, unlike the Gou'ald in SG who came across as cartoonishly evil....

I've done the same.  I watched Firefly a few months ago, and then just finished my run through Farscape.  Firefly was nowhere near the quality of Farscape, and I don't think it was just the shortened time frame.  I genuinely think Firefly was just too cute and self-referential.  Had it stayed on, it would be like Lost: decent start, okay middle, infuriating ending.

True.  Sci-Fi ruled the 'Friday night death slot'.

These days, I enjoy Being Human and Lost Girl, but both are more fantasy than sci-fi.  Lost Girl could also be a hell of a lot better if they bothered to try to create a coherent mythology and worked more on long story arcs as opposed to monster of the week episodes with a hint of long term story thrown in.  I suppose the show brings in enough viewers with all of the lesbian sex, but I'd still rather have a more involved story.

Being Human has been solid, and I prefer it to the Brit version (though I only saw part of the first season of the British one, and that was years ago).

The actor who played Stark had said he wanted to channel Greek drama when acting, especially in the episode where he takes over Talynn.  Sometimes it worked; sometimes it didn't.  I think his concept was pretty awesome, but the execution varied between pretty cool to terribly annoying.

Not sure if trolling or serious. Any of the times he was hallucinating was because of the neural clone jammed in his head or extenuating circumstances. And Scorpius was a decent villain. Crais was ridiculous melodrama, Scorpy was a cold calculating bastard.


I think you're right.  I haven't watched it in a while.  (I'm almost done with Voyager, then on to Enterprise, then I'll watch Farscape again).  I just remember him turning into a cartoon at one point and getting into some Bugs/Fudd battle with Scorpius.  I couldn't really remember why he thought he was a cartoon though.

The Walking Dead has really got me in a tear lately over the "hallucinating under stress" trope that TV writers use, because hallucinations are evidently the only camera-friendly way to show that a character is having psychological/psychiatric problems.

/ Since I mentioned that I'm watching Star Trek, I should also bring up my gripes there.  There's about a million episodes where characters can see/hear/telepathically communicate with an alien that nobody else knows exists.  It must happen like once a month in the Trek universe, but they never ever believe the guy.  The doctor's all, "oh you're just stressed out.  you should take some time relaxing in the holodeck..."  Don't know what's worse, the fact that they consistently fail to give people the benefit of the doubt, or the fact that they actually clear the guy who controls the weapons on a Starship to return to duty while they think he's in the midst of a psychotic break.

A number of years ago, I met Bonnie Hammer, and she asked if I watched her channel.

"Why, yes, I love science fiction TV."

"What's your favorite show?"

I smiled, and said (very pleasantly) "Farscape." (this was about six months after the cancellation)

She cringed, and took a step back. There was actual fear in her eyes. Yay!

Only if you agree to stay on your side.

Gah, for some reason I was thinking he was talking about Scorpy. Yeah, Stark sucked ass and I hated most of his appearances.

The actor who played Stark had said he wanted to channel Greek drama when acting, especially in the episode where he takes over Talynn.  Sometimes it worked; sometimes it didn't.  I think his concept was pretty awesome, but the execution varied between pretty cool to terribly annoying.

That season 10 episode of SG1, "200", showed exactly what was wrong with Farscape in about 15 seconds.


I dunno, I kinda liked the idea that there were some words translator microbes couldn't translate over. I will admit they could have toned it down a little but it wasn't that bad.  I will say they screwed up big though on one of the episodes after everyone was on Earth and John was watching that show with all the interviews with the gang. How would they televise that? John didn't teach everyone enough English, and they didn't give translator microbes to the entire planet.

In the cartoon one he was basically in a coma due to a head injury he got during an argument with D'Argo and the cartoon stuff was his brain's way of dealing with it.

Wasn't that just a group of aliens making him hallucinate that he was on Earth?  I guess it should have tipped him off, but maybe they used their hallucination powers to make him ignore the part of his brain that cares about little inconsistencies (though IIRC it was other little inconsistencies that led to him catching them)

Nah, obviously the episode you mentioned exists, but in one of the later seasons John first ends up traveling through a wormhole to Earth, but ended up in the past, then eventually ends up on on Earth at the right time frame.

Glad to see someone else remembers Invisible Man. Too bad Syfy can't show some reruns of its older shows now and then. At least give the Ghost Hunting a break every once in a while.

Thinking back on it, the style of Invisible Man really seems like a precursor to the common style in the big USA shows like Burn Notice, Suits, etc.

Farscape is a campy brain-rot fest. I'd rather watch Shatner deal with tribbles then that bullshiat. The music in Farscape is brilliant and some of the visuals, but the stilted, George Lucas-esque dialog is just complete shiat.

I'm not expecting much out of Defiance. It has lots of potential, but I'm really getting a Terra Nova quality vibe from it.  I don't really see it lasting more than a couple seasons.

Too bad we can't get some new space faring shows like Star Trek or Stargate.  It would be great if it could get back to networks making more attempts at the genre, like Space: Above and Beyond.

jake_lex: Mugato: Muppets...In Space!

I honestly do think the connection to the Hensons (Jim's son Brian did the puppetry) hurt this show, in a way, because it led people to dismiss it as a kid's show, or at least not worthy of being taken seriously on any level.

I mean, I'm not saying they shouldn't have.  It allowed them to have aliens on the show that were way more, well, alien than the aliens on Star Trek, which often just looked like some guy with something stuck to his forehead and a weird haircut.


Thissssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss. Farscape is without hesitation my favorite scifi show ever. Yes, more than Firefly, More than DS9, more than BSG... And the muppets? Brilliant! I mean 3 of the main characters from the first to the last episode are non-humanoid, how great is that for a live action sci fi anything.

I really like how each season of Lexx had a distinct feel and had a story arc to it.   How many shows can get away with destroying an entire universe only halfway through the series?
 
2013-03-31 11:12:09 PM  
It was an incredible show. I loved Friday nights on Sci-Fi. Farscape at 9 followed by LEXX at 10. Some of the 8:00 shows were even good for some campy fun. Black Scorpion anyone? I thought Farscape jumped the shark a little when D'Argo's "most advanced ship in the universe" is easily detected, blown up with him and Chiana in it, then they are both fine afterwards. Also when they came to Earth that was kinda like a "Galactica:1980" feeling. Not good. Also no one is supposed to be able to understand the aliens unless the little DRDs inject them, but in the TV clip that shocked the world of D'Argo tonguing the boy (that sounds dirtier than it is) his voice over the TV was understood by everyone as he was speaking English. My favorite parts of the series were when Talyn was on it. He was such a cool ship, and I might of even cried when he made the ultimate sacrifice, but i guess it had to be done. My other favorite parts were when they had lots of additional people on the ship: D'Argo's son, the old woman,  Stark, Jool, Sikozu, etc. The show seemed to suffer when it lost main characters. One of my most hated parts was when Aeryn went nuts and cut Pilot out of Moya. But it was great show overall, one of the best sci-fi TV shows ever made, right up there with Babylon 5 and the Star Trek shows. Probably better than some of the Star Trek shows. Neelix I'm looking at you.

I met her a bunch of years ago at the Grand Slam in Pasadena. She was a sweetheart. I spoke with her briefly about the makeup thing and she told me it was giving her LOTS of health issues. The contacts were causing her issues as well. There was a very real threat of her losing her vision.
 
Ultimately she decided it wasn't worth the risks to her health while they hammered out the makeup issues.

You know, I hate to say it, but besides the health issues the actress was going through, things were getting to a point where Zahn needed to either shape up or leave. After her crisis of faith and the bit where she started going nuts from her guilt at abandoning Chrichton, Zahn was getting really annoying and acting all helpless. It would have been better if she'd had a few episodes of guilt and got back to business as usual. She started out strong, confident and willing to do what it took to survive, and then went all "I've lost my faith, I'm worthless and can't do anything!" The concept of that was great, but the execution made her character get annoying.

Not sure if that was a serious comment or if my sarcasm meter is broken, but 'Western' elements of Firefly went far beyond the occasional rural setting.  Firefly was never a pure Western, but the themes of Mal and his band of outlaw smugglers bouncing around the barely civilized outer planets along with a couple of wanted city folk (one of whom had the feel of a frontier doctor) fits well into the Western mold.
 
A lot of that is what made Firefly brilliant.  It was sci-fi, but with a ton of heart.  The crew had futuristic technology, but never so much that they weren't extremely outmatched by the encroaching empire out to get them.

Not sure if trolling or serious. Any of the times he was hallucinating was because of the neural clone jammed in his head or extenuating circumstances. And Scorpius was a decent villain. Crais was ridiculous melodrama, Scorpy was a cold calculating bastard.
 
One of the few errors the show made was having Scorpius get his ass kicked throughout season three and four on a regular basis.  It took away a little of his mystique.
 
I know some folks here said they couldn't get over the puppets, and I have to admit, it took me about three starts to finally latch onto the puppets and the makeup (which was horrible in season one).  Once I got into it, though, there was no looking back.
 
I dunno about his mystique, but it did take a touch of his menace away. Still, the beat downs, the torture, the mollusks, and everything else serve to show you that he's still one tough bastard and will still try to manipulate his way through shiat if he can.
 
Yes, but then he's SMILING at the end of The Peacekeeper Wars.  I know the Eidolon influence is there, but holy hell, that was incongruous.  He hated both sides equally.
 
 
He went through hell and back, a majority of his life was fighting against the Scarran, and it paid off, he got John to use it as a weapon to get the Scarran in line.  His goals were achieved.
 
He always did have a bit of pomposity about him but combined with noble morals, if not practices.  He's happy with himself, taking pride in a job well done despite grave odds. Not incongruous at all.
 
/he made a great anti-hero
//Disclaimer: the mini series that ended the series was....rushed.  I can't blame actors for losing a bit of their edge after an extended haitus.

One of the many shows that is proof that Sci-Fi can NOT end a show well to save their lives.  I swear to God, their execs purposely end series in a way to piss off as much as the fan base as possible, every time.

Maybe a better way to put it would be that Firefly had the potential to be the best sci-fi series of all time, or at least right up there in the top three.  As far as first seasons go, I'd put the one season of Firefly up against the first season of any other show, regardless of genre.
 
Would it have been able to maintain the level of quality as time went on?  Who knows, but given Whedon's abilities, I wouldn't have bet against it.

jake_lex: Mugato: Muppets...In Space!

I honestly do think the connection to the Hensons (Jim's son Brian did the puppetry) hurt this show, in a way, because it led people to dismiss it as a kid's show, or at least not worthy of being taken seriously on any level.

I mean, I'm not saying they shouldn't have.  It allowed them to have aliens on the show that were way more, well, alien than the aliens on Star Trek, which often just looked like some guy with something stuck to his forehead and a weird haircut.


Don't forget the universal alien accent.
 
2013-04-01 04:15:03 AM  
Different genres..
 
Epic space sagas with compelling and interesting back stories?
B5, Farscape, Firefly were all fantastic and had plots that evolved (obviously with some issues and failures in later seasons).
Stargate never really grabbed me. Battlestar Galactica just got too obscure early on..
 
Lexx, Red Dwarf, good comedies, great small crew interaction and oddball situations. I couldn't stand the freaking cat character in Red Dwarf and with a cast of 4-5 it bugged the heck out of me. Sliders was fun but a little silly at times.
 
The boxed up consumer stuff is fun too. Star Trek TNG was really the first evolutionary one with the Borg series. Star Trek DS9 and to a lesser extent Voyager were pretty fun.
 
Make a nice Ender's Game mini-series. A Mass Effect movie without the Star Trek lens flare of the last film.
 
I could never believe Kevin Sorbo in a Sci-fi. I'd see him in his muscled physique and say, nope this guy should be playing some primitive king on a planet these guys visit, as hercules. How the heck did he get a space-ship? Did he freaking club the last captain over the head?

There's supposed to be a SyFy series called Defender that's going to be a 'space opera' but I haven't seen any promo for it. Canceling SG-U right when it was getting good was a crime. Supposedly SyFy is also working on some space based desperado/western type of show, which while it sounds like a Firefly rip-off, I'd be happy to take it.


You are not helping.
/Syfy is an example of what would happen to ESPN if it was run by someone who didn't like sports.

Can we say Firefly had great peak value, but TNG, B5, etc had great career value? Or some other easy to understand sports analogy?

Dingleberry Dickwad: Malacon: NeoCortex42: MusicMakeMyHeadPound: deaccessioned: That show just wasn't the same after Zhaan left.  Once you got blue, you never go... shmoo?

That was sad. Especially since it couldn't be helped (Virginia Hey's makeup was killing her kidneys).

Didn't realize that's why she left. That sucks. You would think on a sci-fi show like Farscape, they could have found an excuse to change up her makeup to something easier.

They did... kinda. At the end of her stay. she started wearing a robe like thing a lot, so they didn't need to do all the paint work. They also tried changing the types of paint they were using, but it didn't help.
 
I met her a bunch of years ago at the Grand Slam in Pasadena. She was a sweetheart. I spoke with her briefly about the makeup thing and she told me it was giving her LOTS of health issues. The contacts were causing her issues as well. There was a very real threat of her losing her vision.
 
Ultimately she decided it wasn't worth the risks to her health while they hammered out the makeup issues.

You know, I hate to say it, but besides the health issues the actress was going through, things were getting to a point where Zahn needed to either shape up or leave. After her crisis of faith and the bit where she started going nuts from her guilt at abandoning Chrichton, Zahn was getting really annoying and acting all helpless. It would have been better if she'd had a few episodes of guilt and got back to business as usual. She started out strong, confident and willing to do what it took to survive, and then went all "I've lost my faith, I'm worthless and can't do anything!" The concept of that was great, but the execution made her character get annoying.


Yes, they didn't quite know what to do with her.  She started off as a badass priest, then tried to reform, then stopped being a priest, then became a sort of medical adviser, then started to be biatchy, then went back to being a priest.  She was a great character (and she looked wonderful), but I think the writers boxed themselves in with her.

kiwimoogle84: I'm sorry, WHAT? Firefly was a WESTERN? Clearly you never watched it all the way through. There was maybe one hour total rural horse/western footage in the whole show. The rest was in SPACE, on SPACESHIPS, in a FUTURISTIC setting. Wow. Just...wow.


Firefly is a western set during the Recovery. 
Browncoats are 'Grey Backs'. 
Reavers are stereotypical Apaches. 
 
The whole show is a mass of western cliches.  
 
It does have a few space opera elements as well. 
But it has the same amount of science as Buffy.

blustacon: I remember her reasoning was that a surprising number of SciFi (not SyFy) viewers were female and so they must change programming to cater to those viewers. Forgetting perhaps that those female viewers probably liked what they were already watching which was why they were there in the damn first place!!!!!

 
This.  Out of all the SciFi shows that I liked, Farscape was the only one that my girlfriends would watch with me.  One of them even joined in the letter-writing campaign when the show was cancelled.
 
Just re-watched it recently with my wife.  She liked it, too, although she seemed less interested in the plot and more in Ben Browder and his leather pants...
 
2013-04-01 08:21:45 AM  
Farscape sucked.

It started out nice but than they had an entire season of filler and after that they ran out of even the dregs that were left in the idea barrel. The ending sucked, the script sucked and I only finished it (skipping through later episodes) because I wanted to know if they finally managed to finish it.

Exactly.  Hey, let's put someone in charge of the SciFi channel when they've repeatedly and openly stated that they hate science-fiction and related genres.  That'll be great!
 
Seriously though, fark her.  I haven't seen any evidence that the channel does anything other than make the same amount of profit with DRASTICALLY reduced effort and the loss of any kind of fanbase (meaning that all their new shows are tanking before the first episode, because there's a sizable amount of viewers who will actively avoid it).
 
2013-04-01 09:23:28 AM  
I miss FarScape. The puppetry gave such a unique look, that it really felt like the show was something different. And for the love of god, Firefly people, MOVE ON. I can't go a day on FB or Fark without hearing people whine about it. The Whovians are loud enough, but at least they're about something that lasted more that a blink of an eye.

So much THIS!  I will never forgive her for canceling Farscape, and I hope one day she gets fired from wherever she is now in the meanest and most horribly embarrassment way.  She is the reason that the Sci-Fi Channel (I refuse to call it Syfy) has hardly any Sci-Fi, and the "Learning" disappearing from The Learning Channel, and history disappearing from the History Channel.  It may not have been all her, but it started with her, so she gets the ultimate blame.

They had some trouble because SciFi jerked them around with whether they were getting cancelled or not. I remember reading that they even had trouble with some lost sets/scenery because they were cancelled and then not cancelled. It was really stupid.

Peacekeeper Wars may have not been perfect, but it was good enough for me as far as laying the series to rest - at least it got to conclude.

While Farkers in this thread joke about the headline, it speaks to a greater, depressing truth: look at all the other good sci-fi brought up and consider that there's only one current show that fits into that class (Doctor Who). Where did all the sci-fi go?

The problem with The Peacekeeper Wars is that they needed another full hour or so to bring it to a conclusion.  For a great character like D'argo, it was genuinely surprising to me that they did not spend more time on him.  It was more like "how brave!  See you!"

In response to your second comment, there is no really good sci-fi out there anymore.  For me, BSG, Farscape, and Fringe have been at the top of the list.

I agree, but Red Dwarf was awesome for what it was.  A comedy which was unrestricted by reality.  Not quite a parody, it used sci-fi as a device, not a base.  At that, it's just plain silly, in line with Hitchhikers, but with more ass and fart jokes.

Stargate SG1 started out on Showtime (I didn't get into the shower until after it was on Sci-Fi and watching the first season on DVD I was very surprised there were boobs in the first episode) so there is some precedence.

HBO has done well with supernatural (True Blood) and fantasy (GOT) so there is certainly the potential that they could put out a great sci-fi series and make it work financially.

I remember my family subscribing to Showtime just for SG-1.  It was some of the best (and most consistent) sci-fi on television at the time.  It did go on a couple seasons too long, though.  The characters were still good (even the replacements for the original members), but the writers ran out of story.  The Orii just sucked as a villain.

Red Dwarf blows in so many ways it's nearly a hurricane.  It's a prime example of a niche show a dozen people on Earth think is funny and they continually try to convince everyone else they're not idiots for liking it.

Blame Syfyllis for that.  The writers were told that season 7 was the end, so they pretty much wrapped everything up and then got told they had been renewed for several more seasons.  "What do you mean we've been renewed?  We tied everything up, there's nothing left to do!"

Look, if I am shot through a wormhole to a distant part of the galaxy, trapped on a living ship full of escaped criminals and I am with anyone half as hot as Claudia Black, I'm not worrying about getting back to Earth.

Hello, Mr. Homosexual.


Eh, she was pretty hot back then, but Sikozu, and the PK Tech girl girl were hotter. Betting they've both aged better too. From recent pics I'd seen of Claudia Black she didn't age too well.

Edymnion,
NeoCortex42: I remember my family subscribing to Showtime just for SG-1. It was some of the best (and most consistent) sci-fi on television at the time. It did go on a couple seasons too long, though. The characters were still good (even the replacements for the original members), but the writers ran out of story. The Orii just sucked as a villain.
Blame Syfyllis for that. The writers were told that season 7 was the end, so they pretty much wrapped everything up and then got told they had been renewed for several more seasons. "What do you mean we've been renewed? We tied everything up, there's nothing left to do!"

Give the final season credit, the writers predicted the future of science fiction:
JJ's Star Trek:
Link

SG 90210:
Link
(Best I could find was German)

How many other shows have depicted the hero running around with a copy of the villain in their head waiting for them to think about the formulas they wanted to steal?

None. That's how many.

CSB: Got to party with the cast members at the first Burbank convention in 2000 when Anthony Simcoe's band played Saturday night. Wayne Pygram was on drums and the wife and I danced elbow-to-elbow with Lani Tupu and Gigi Edgley (who was drunk and hilarious).

Good times.

It's all a matter of personal taste. I'm with you, I never found Claudia Black to be particularly attractive. Sikozu, on the other hand, is about as close to pure female perfection as I have ever seen in my life.

Claudia Black hit maximum hotness in season 2, and kept it all the way until about halfway through season 4.  I think the problem was that Aeryn Sun changed from this badass warrior type to a sweet, loving woman who wept over everything.  That kind of stole a lot of her characterization.
