Happy New Year! We have Ben on Criminal Minds this month (?), Hoax and Being hopefully being released this year and maybe more news on GotG3 who knows !? 2018 should be a good year for Ben fans!
Update on #farscapenow :
When I started this campaign I figured on a year to get it going. That was based on the original Save Farscape campaign and the fact there is no central fan site to get people involved. I do think as we go forward we need to push for a 20th Anniversary convention in 2019, perhaps the buzz from that will garner attention from the press and investors.We also need to get Farscape back streaming on one or all of the services. Old fans will rediscover it and maybe be motivated to get involved. New fans will be made. I have started watching shows that I wasn’t interested in or had no time for when they aired on traditional television/cable. Often quality has little to do what what gets revived. People talking about a show. A show trending on social media.
Request Farscape on Netflix .

Can I get a Hell yea??!!
While we wait for release dates for Ben’s projects in post production, Hoax and Being, and any new projects I have a couple of links for new fans. Farscapeworld and karlsweb are great pace to experience the series as it aired. So re-watch an episode and check out what people said 17 years ago before binging was a TV term!
I also want to note the timeline from Farscape‘s cancellation to the airing of The Peacekeeper Wars for those getting depressed about the #farscapenow campaign.
—-Farscape cancelled September 2002
—-The Peacekeeper Wars begins production December 2003
—-Official announcement that SciFi Channel will air The Peacekeeper Wars May 2004
—-The Peacekeeper Wars airs October 2004
I leave you with CaScaper Bob’s tribute from the 2002 Farscape Con —- Time of Your Life

Fellow longtime Scaper Nora and I are predicting Ben’s return in Guardians Volume 3. This is based on absolutely nothing except that Elisabeth Debicki is signed 😀 The script is not complete and we all know how Marvel is about non-disclosure agreements. The principles are signed through Volume 3 and I imagine filming will be completed before a list sans surprise cameos will be available. Since Ben would be reprising my hope is we may see his name at that time. Since Gunn may not follow the comics who knows if the Queen will be with the other Sovereigns at all. Until then and while we wait for Hoax and Being to be released it is fun to speculate!!
Farscape fans be sure and check out Elizabeth Debicki’s series The Kettering Incident (US viewers it is on Amazon) directed by Rowan Woods.
Continue your hashtagging!!! #farscapenow

Being producer Rickey Perez posted a couple of set photos of Ben. The independent film is due to be released next year and no distribution details yet. Apparently Ben charmed which is no surprise to his fans 😀

Filming Being begins today ! Looking forward to this independent film which I hope makes it to theaters. I prefer the theater experience for most films as I feel it draws the audience in more. Farscape and X Files are the two shows that drew me in so that I forgot about the laundry and vacuuming that surrounded me! That said this story intrigues me so I will watch no matter the format and likely would even if Ben wasn’t in it.
To all participating in the hashtag-a-thons keep it up!! Each days we see some new names! Don’t do social media? Go old school look up email addresses or physical addresses of the streaming companies and send your wish for more Farscape. Give them demographics and mention if you are a subscriber or would become one. Same with the various blogs who all seemed excited that James Gunn mentioned Farscape but have not followed that up with a look back. I have found many of these writers prefer social media contact so good luck and post your successes! I have sent some emails and have had no luck but our online presence is still just a tiny blip. There are Facebook groups with 3000 members yet only a handful posting if that. I realize many people just check pages now and then and it doesn’t reflect what kind of fan they are BUT it does send a message that yea people say they want more but where is the interest? All of you that say you don’t see why there is no kickstarter and you would donate I have to wonder if you really would since it is more effort than posting or emailing. For me this provides a great distraction from all the negative news —- take an hour now and then and think about Farscape and the emotions and positive moments either alone or with fellow fans. The social media campaigns are what they look at —- Everwood, Jersey Shore response to articles or blurbs motivated fans.

UPDATE 2 : The writer of the film (with Douglas C. Williams) is a big Farscape fan was excited when he was told Ben had been signed!!
UPDATE 1 August : Principle filming will start August 14th in Cornwallville,NY. Keep an eye on Ben Browder Network on Facebook and Twitter for Being inspired photos featuring Ben and the cast by Sprite Lady.
Scaper Patricia passed on Ben Browder Network’s find of a new IMDB listing for Ben — Being scheduled for 2018 featuring Lance Hendrickson and Robert John Burke. He plays Agent Dixon so an MIB or a Mulder 😉 Am confirming any details now.
