10 April

Scaper Patricia posted a promo photo that brought back a flood of memories! The convention center at the Burbank Hilton had windows and we were lining up to go in and could see the vendor table with the new official photos! Squeeing was heard as each group saw them!! It  was 2001 and jaded scifi fans were still disbelieving of a “ship” early in a series no matter what was seen and that the producers/writers/actors said! A couple of months before I had listened to creator Rockne O’Bannon explain at SDCC that he felt it wrong when shows ignored chemistry or were afraid to write an adult relationship (he cited X Files). Then these incredible season 3 promo photos came out! Farscape was good solid drama and had a love story that was organic not just an occasional plot device. This first photo is the one I got signed — Ben signed in Claudia’s hair saying “It is all about the hair” !

    Ben and Claudia always said that the center of the show was an epic love story. They also said that they believed and acted on the assumption that the two characters, John and Aeryn, leaped into bed quite early and often. They played it that way even if the scripts indicated that they had only had relations once before season 3.

    That powerful love story was driven by the two actors’ enormous sexual and intellectual chemistry plus the gorgeous scripts they were given to play and the production style which was so inclusive in which they played it.

    That romantic photo of Ben holding Claudia was so indicative of the show. What other science fiction program had a demographic that was 50% female and reveled in that?

    I bought these and have them framed along with other Farscape 8×10’s in my office! I so loved this series and wish – in this revival era – we could have another short peak into John and Aeryn’s lives on Moya.

    I always loved the glimpses in the day to day bits. I totally agree , not too interested in the adventures of the teenage son which was a rumored script.
