    I adored Farscape and I do own it on DVD. It was one of the best shows ever at combining humor with action. Those pop culture references by Crichton were often hysterically funny. Great cast, too, and not until I read the credits carefully did I realize that Lani Tupu voiced Pilot as well as playing Crais.

    Thank you Sanctuary for having an episode on Friday after Turkey Day.

    Okay, for those few () who are interested, Hulu actually does have the webisodes. They combined the eight 15-minute webisodes and made two hour-long episodes. Here's the first of two: Hulu - Sanctuary: The Lost Webisodes, Part 1

    I'm still surprised that Amanda Tapping isn't British. Her accent is really good. Plus, I can't believe Druitt and Big Guy are the same actor. I guess we never do see them in a scene together, but I never would have guessed.

    I just finished watching season 2 and am on to season 3! I'm going to be kind of bummed when I have to wait for new episodes.

    Well, she actually was born in England, but moved to Canada at age 3. If her parents are British, she may have retained the accent. I think perhaps it comes more naturally to her than her American accent in Stargate, but I'm just guessing.

    Ah, that makes sense. It's sort of like John Barrowman, who was born in Scotland, but moved to the states when he was young. Although his regular speaking voice is American, he can do a totally authentic Scottish brogue.

    I was so excited to finally see a new episode! That was WAY too long to wait.

    What I am really enjoying is that there are series that are starting now or in May/June that will run the summer. I am looking forward to seeing SyFy's Alphas. It looks very promising.

    Does anyone else sometimes finds Magnus's character so pompous and all knowing and superior that they want to slap her? I know I do.

    What happened to Magnus's daughter ? I've been watching the reruns and haven't found the episode that she disappears.
