Farscape Movie In The Making

After a few weeks following the original rumours, Rockne O’Bannon, creator and showrunner of the original series, has confirmed that the movie is, in fact, happening. Confirmation came via TV.com that “O’Bannon, the co-creator of Warehouse 13, Defiance, and Revolution… who was also Farscape’s creator and showrunner – has indeed CONFIRMED a Farscape movie is happening. SpoilerTV followed up with a quote from O’Bannon establishing Justin Monjo’s involvement: “Yeah, yeah it’s the worst kept secret…We’re far from production, but yeah, the first step is Justin [Monjo] working on a script for us. We’ll keep our fingers crossed.” This will be great news for fans of the cult show that ran for 4 seasons before it got cancelled followed by a mini-series to wrap up the storyline, which was initiated by a massive fan campaign on the internet.

The film would follow John and Aeryn’s son, D’Argo (or Little D, as we will always refer to him). Because their baby was exhibiting a set of interesting powers that made him a magnet for galactic villains, we find that John and Aeryn hide their son on Earth to grow up. Now the kid is 19 and ready to go into space with his parents. Farscape fans would know that any future stuff from the Farscape world will not include the regular characters Ka D’Argo who died in mini-series Peacekeeper Wars as well as recurring character former crewmate Jool, who was killed off as well. Pa’u Zotoh Zhaan, a main character, too was killed off at the beginning of the 3rd season, due to actress having health problems due to the extensive makeup which was affecting her kidneys.

One can only wait and see.

Arsenal 3 Hull City 0

In a preview of the FA Cup final Arsenal kept control of the destiny of the fourth and final Champions League spot as Lukas Podolski scored twice in an easy Premier League win at Hull. Arsenal stay a point clear of Everton – who beat Manchester United – but nearly conceded to a Shane Long effort. The Gunners took control as Santi Cazorla set up Aaron Ramsey to fire in and Podolski buried a half-volley. Podolski turned in a loose ball after the break and Hull never threatened to peg back their FA Cup final opponents. The two teams will meet again at Wembley on 17 May and Hull’s fans began the afternoon by reminding their opponents of their 100% record at the venue, having won the 2008 Championship play-off final, and the recent FA Cup semi-final against Sheffield United.

The Tigers will have to perform a lot better if they are to stifle a rejuvenated Arsenal in next month’s encounter, though, and still have a faint threat of relegation hanging over them. Steve Bruce’s side are six points above the drop zone but have three away games – at Fulham, Aston Villa and Manchester United – before finishing their league campaign at home to Champions League-chasing Everton. Arsenal will hope to finish their own season by not only securing fourth spot but repeating this victory to clinch their first silverware in nine years. Achieving those aims might be enough to persuade manager Arsene Wenger to extend a contract that expires at the end of the season.

Played in blustery conditions which caused an early hold-up in play as advertising hoardings were blown across the pitch, and against opponents committed to pressing high and hard, this match had the potential to be a tough one for the Gunners. But apart from a couple of early opportunities for Hull, most notably when Long cleared the bar from a tight angle and Jake Livermore drilled against the post from distance, Arsenal looked secure. Arsenal sit at 4th after 35 games played and 70 points.
