Most of the digerati will have heard about this
from the story on
- currently the
number two show at the
and in the past the SciFi channel's flagship -
has apparently been
one year short of its five-year contract.
Of course a lot of slugs immediately crawled out
of the woodwork to say, "good riddance, I hated that
show" but, back on planet reality, Farscape has won
and critical acclaim.
However, apparently the cost of Farscape,
combined with strong ratings for
SciFi channel newcomer
(which rapidly became the channel's number one show)
led to the network's decision to poison the well.
While an official announcement is still
forthcoming, the campaign to save the show
is going on in earnest at the
site. Since prospects for the show to
survive at SciFi are dim, the creators are
currently looking for a new network home
such as UPN with its strong history of
science fiction and genre programming.
But, while things remain in limbo,
rapid action on the part of the fans is
crucial - especially polite but disappointed
phone calls and similarly themed handwritten
letters. Check out the

to save Moya!
