What do you think of the way they ended the Farscape series?

Criton proposes to Erun, then they get blasted to particles by an alien ship coming out of nowhere.

Complete bumber of an ending.
The two things we all have in common, we are born of woman, and we will all inevitably die.
Some will have the honor to stand on the line falling while protecting kin and country instead of passing in bed, a pain riddled decayed old husk.
To dare is to live. To dare great things is to be remembered. In the end, Murphy will rule.

I have to say I liked it a lot. It was much better than the usual "they lived happily ever after" you usually see on tv. It's impact is greatly lessened, however, by the fact that they didn't edit out the "to be contiuned" at the end of the episode. What this tells you is that Crichton and Aeryn aren't really dead or else they can be easily revived with the right technology. So really it ends with us not knowing how they get out of this situation. Maybe they'll make a FARSCAPE movie... [img]smile.gif[/img]

So was that It? Or is it a two parter? Hey, if they turned Crichton into a statue, cut his head off and STILL brought him back, there's always hope, what?

Blast! Now there really IS nothing to watch on TV...

The first rule of television science fiction is: DON'T FALL IN LOVE.

They always kill off one or the other, or both. It's called cheap melodrama.

Of course, Farscape somehow avoided the second rule: wrap up the series in six weeks, 'cause you're going to be cancelled at that point.

I didn't like it. I'd much preferd to have had it all end without a real resoultion, something like the alien ship making a straffing run on them and the two of them rowing the boat back towards moya, John rowing and wisecracking and Aeryn blazing away as the camera pulls back further and further 'till they're gone. Leaves it all up in the air then, and ends with things going pear-shaped again, as usual.

But didn't the alien with the amazing expanding head in the ship say something like "capturing target for evaluation"? AFAIK there are no firm plans for a follow up movie but "its being discussed" along with an anime sequal.
