Angel of the Revolution

Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars

Just watched both episodes in about three hours and all I can say is "Wow!" It's got everything that the original series did, plus (I suspect) a much bigger effects budget. VERY strong story, finally resolving most of the plot threads of the series. Homage to everything from The Magnificent Seven and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid to 2001, 2010, and Things to Come.

Don't dare to say much about the actual plot, but it does everything that people have been hoping for, including (if I understood one part correctly) explaining why Sebbaceans and Humans are so much alike.

I did think that the original plan was to make three films - does anyone know if there's going to be another, or was that it?

The Key to Byzantium - VIII

Here's the first draft of chapter VIII of my Buffy/Stargate crossover. Previous parts are at


As usual I'd be grateful for comments, if nobody spots anything too horrible I'll be posting to archives tomorrow night. This is another of those "characters find out about each other" chapters without much in the way of action, and maybe a little too long, so I'd appreciate comments on that.
