Trivia

Melissa Jaffer (Noranti) was to have had a larger part in the miniseries, but a bad reaction to the makeup forced her to drop out after only a few scenes. Most of her scenes were rewritten for other characters (most notably her officiating John and Aeryn's marriage went to Rygel) and later glimpses of Noranti are actually a look-alike. See more »

Goofs

Pilot's voice sounds different than it did in Farscape the series, as a result of a different sound system used to filter Lani John Tupu's voice. See more »

Far Out!
18 October 2004 | by (Georgia, United States) – See all my reviews

Just in case you are not familiar with the back story of this excellent little mini-series: Farscape PKWs is a continuation of a cancelled television series on the Scifi channel. Nothing special about that you say?

Well, what makes this unique is the fact that it never would have been made except for the legions of fans who caused such a ruckus after Scifi made the stupid mistake of canceling. THE FANS got the attention of financial backers who then invested in making this little gem. How amazing is that? In a world where we feel like people crap on us at will and it's us again the big corporations...the little man finally won a small but decisive battle.

As for the show, some die-hard fans, myself included, noticed a few differences in how the mini-series was shot and some character changes...though all the original actors were used. Still, I was almost in tears when I saw my favorite Hynerian in all his squat and toadlike splendor. Definitely not a disappointment to loyal fans and hopefully an eye catcher to those who are new to the series. The humor was there, the dangers were still lurking around the corners, and the chemistry was as sizzling as ever. I highly recommend that anyone who hasn't seen this glorious series go out and rent the first season. You'll never regret it!
