Trivia

Between the end of the Farscape (1999) series and this miniseries production, the sound processing and makeup was changed to different companies. Hence, the different sound for Pilot and the makeup difficulties for Noranti, even though both characters are played by the same actors from the show. The character makeup was changed, and not for the better. Melissa Jaffer had to pull out after shooting only a few scenes, after a bad reaction to the new makeup. The attempt to film her part with a double (while she voiced the dialogue) was abandoned part-way through filming as the double was not very convincing. The character is almost completely absent for the final two-thirds of the 3-hour mini-series and even then you only catch glimpses of her from behind or the side. See more »

Goofs

At the end of Farscape: Bad Timing when Aeryn and John were transformed into crystals, their pulse pistols are clearly visible in the pile (the pistols had not turned into crystals). However, when they were reconstituted at the beginning of 'The Peacekeeper Wars' the first thing they did was pull their guns which were, supposedly, still in their holsters. See more »

Quotes

Ka D'Argo: [Chiana has found the weak points in Staleek's ship] Excellent. I'll be able to stop them cold with three perfect shots.
Chiana: Why three? You usually slay me with just one.

Excellent ending!
19 October 2004 | by See all my reviews

For all the farscapers that were left at the edge of their seats from the series' finale cliff-hanger, you will be truly satisfied with how this mini-series successfully ties all loose ends. I was impressed on how the they took a few minutes to summarize the series and quickly introduces the characters, their relationships and the basic plot line to any new viewers at the beginning. After that, the show takes off!

Farscape: The Peackeeper Wars continues to extract elements from what made the series superb in the first place, by relying on characterization and great dialogue. What lies at the core of the Farscape world is their characters, their relationships with one another, their own evolution as a person and their abilities to deal with a harsh environment. All the sci-fi elements, at times, seem almost to be implemented as accessories, an extra-added bonus. The basic story lines and character develop can work in the real world.

With a bigger budget to work with, the mini-series' special effects were very impressive, not to say that the series' wasn't either. The program had it all, space battles, laser-gun battles, worm holes, scary aliens and alien romance! I was kept at the edge of my seat the whole time.

Although I was greatly hurt that the series was cancelled, I was truly satisfied on how Farscape ended, although some out there won't be happy on how some of the story lines and characters ended. For those not familiar with Farscape, the mini-series acts as a spring-board to go back from the beginning watch the series. Your best bet is on DVD, as the SciFi Channel rarely show reruns and when they do, it'll most likely be on in the early morning hours.
