YAY.  As I'm currently watching Farscape (Just started on Season 4) this is very cool news.

Note to self: Acquire and read Farscape comics after I'm done watching the Farscape series and Peacekeeper Wars.

Tangent:  Went looking for Brian Henson because I remembered a Henson had recently passed away (John, not Brian.  RIP John.) and found out that Brian married Sloane... I mean, Mia Sara.  Good catch, Brian.  I thought she was going to make an excellent Harley Quinn on Birds of Prey, myself, but too bad the show didn't take.

No frelling way.   :D

Farscape is my favorite sci-fi series.  I just re-watched all of the episodes last month and was, yet again, saddened by the loss of the program.

I even went so far as to create some Scaper toons in CoX.  Don't tell anyone, it may have violated the EULA.  ;)

I am tentatively excited, though I worry about these sorts of revisits as there is great potential to screw things up and completely lose the chemistry that made the original great.  Then it's like some sociopathic alien dug up the beloved family pet and possessed it, walking around in its tattered remains with poor pretense, turning it into a distasteful mockery.
When you insult someone by calling them a "pig" or a "dog" you aren't maligning pigs and dogs everywhere.  The same is true of any term used as an insult.

If the Crichtons are involved, that chemistry is going to be there in *spades*, 'cause Ben and Claudia worked together for both Farscape and SG-1.  They'll get into character as if slipping on comfy gloves.  I suspect the others they bring back, if they do, will be equally up to the task of being who they were in the show.

Only wildcard here, I think, is a poorly chosen actor to play the part of D'Argo Sun-Crichton.

Don't mean to be a downer but there's usually "a movie in the works" for practically any and every franchise you can think of and almost none of them actually get made in the long run.  Let's just say as with most of these I'll believe it when I see it - until then I'm not really going to be expecting anything from this.
