a.k.a - The "Farscape" or "Water Rats" Reunion
9 January 2008 | by See all my reviews

I haven't actually seen this, but when you look at the cast listing, you'll see that out of 30 or so in the cast, not including the director, almost half were on Farscape at one time or another, and it looks like it is almost the same for Water Rats. For a large continent, they sure do have a small acting pool. (Just to avoid misunderstanding, I'm not commenting on the quality of the actors in the show, just the quantity of talent down under. :) ) I'm sure the "cross-pollination" happens with other shows, but I'm not really all that familiar with the other ones.

Now that I've got more channels, I'll have to see if I get any Australian programming, or try other avenues. I really want to see some of these people act without elaborate costumes and prosthetics.
