    As a diehard Scaper, myself and others tried to take the smart, diplomatic approach i.e. sending emails, calling Sci-Fi, sending Flowers,etc. And it didnt hurt that Matt Roush (TV Guide critic) is a fan as well..Farscape has a diehard following, and the actors and producers are very respectful and receptive of the fans...
    Yeah, I know there were a lot of factors. But I think it was a credible contributor. I don't know what you mean by it not being a "direct" contributor. I didn't mean that it was the sole contributor, or primary contributor, but it was one contributor and seems as direct as any of the other ones. I think it did what it intended. It showed the producers a large number of fans were against the cancellation. Anyway, we're probably getting more and more off-topic here.

    True, but I think someone could just as easily argue that the percentage increase in cost is fairly small, and, given their profit margin, they could afford to pay that small increase in exchange for the good will/press they'd get for overtly catering to a request made by a sufficiently large group of fans. Given the dearth of men this year, it's feasible that Matt's inclusion could even increase sales, as bizarre as that concept may seem . I certainly don't care much for Matt or Leah, but it sounds like there are a good number who do.

    I thought it would be nice if they could appear on the show that is near their home town, but it just isn't going to happen.
    Jeez, that's terrible. Perhaps, it's better that he spend more time at home then, though, during the On Air show, Matt did sound really disappointed that he wasn't touring. Being the sensitive guy he is, Ryan pointed out how much Matt loved the spotlight before asking him why the producers decided not to take him and Leah.

    I'm glad he isn't going on tour.. he's sorta obnoxious IMO... I mean, stealing Fantasia's broken heel (from the Finale show) to sell on Ebay?! What's up with that?

    Even the interviewer asked him about it on ET (I think it was), and I think Tasia was glaring daggers at him. He had that awful "ghastly" (to quote Simon) smile on his face as he said "I'm gonna make more money off that heel than I've ever made in my whole life".

    In the previous rounds and Group 2, he was okay. Once he was in the Top 12, the whole thing went to his head - he just became too "in your face"ish.

    Are you serious?!

    I never liked Matt's personality anyway, I think all 12 should get to go though. Not that it matters.

    I don't think Tasia has once been serious since the show began. Matt and Tasia were just joking around with that heel shtick, IMO. I thought it was amusing.
