They arent showing it the US? Damn, why do the American networks feel the need to deprive you guys of awesome sci-fi?
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

So they can keep pumping out garbage like Farscape which inevitably drifts over here to pollute our screens. Feugh! They like to give and take crap.

I didn't think Farscape was bad. At least they seem to replay plenty of Doctor who on UK-TV down here.

Because it's Britsh, and American TV hates British TV programs unless they've been sufficiently 'Americanized' (Those who don't believe me compare the American and British versions of The Office, who wants to be a millionaire? and I'm almost certain that the that 70's show is based on a series on ITV over a decade ago)

Of course yanks don't trust anything not made by them they will export shows by the boat load but when it comes to getting anything they Americanize it. Of course this results in all the humor or general artistic-ness on getting lost in translation.

I liked Farscape, one of my favorite shows. They show Dr Who in America, I've seen it. Not sure if it's new ones. I like British television.

I wouldn't say farscape is garbage, it had a pretty good plot and interesting characters, plus wasn't most of it filmed in Australia by Australians?

Are you a self-hating American or someone who's just made one too many typos?

I find that television is generally less interesting than the internet anyway. I don't watch that much.
Not a winner anymore.

Farscape was good!. Plus it was Canadian or was it Australian i forget. The crappy stuff is Battlestar Craprica and Star Gate milking.

As an Australian i can confirm it was an Australian made show. A lot of extras are A lot of Australian actors plus you can tell every time they end up going to earth they seem to crash land near Sydney. I was watching a Farscape repeat on sci-fi last week it was the one where some aliens trick John into thinking he found a worm hole home to find out if humans would accept them. Cue John and Erin running around the Sydney harbor.

You mean John never went far into space? He just went to Australia? What a rip. I guess Australians are just    Sebacean in disguise.

The major flaw in that is Sebaceans can't stand the heat but Australians are built to love it.

But this is so not about Doctor Who I'm sure there is a Farscape topic somewhere.
