This petition is to show the number of people who watched and loved the television show "Farscape" which until recently aired on the SciFi Channel (property of USA Networks).
It is my hope that this display of audience will encourage SciFi to pick up the show for its fifth season and hopefully beyond.
To all who have worked on this program, we send our love and best wishes.
Thanks for a great four years.
PS: Please note, fellow Scapers, that there is more to be done than simply adding your name to this petition. Letters, telephone calls, faxes, spreading the word, demonstrations, are all viable ways of getting USA Networks' attention. One physical piece of snail mail is valued at about 1000 viewers to these people. They can't ignore it, delete it, or refuse to look at it. Please, please, seek out other mediums with which you can voice your disappointment.
PPS: This petition has been mentioned and/or linked to by CNN Headline News (3 times), TeleText UK TV, Cinescape Online, Ain't It Cool News, and many others. This is positive attention: a good sign. Our voices are being heard worldwide. Let's keep it up.
PPPS: The tally of signatures is only viewable by the petition creator on ipetitions.com. You can find the total constantly updated on irc.scifi.com, #farscape, where a 24/7 battle for Farscape's return has been waging since the news was broken to us there by Ben Browder, David Kemper, and Richard Manning.
PPPPS: I'd like to thank Dan (One) for covering for me in the #farscape channel, updating the tally for the hundreds of inquiring souls when I was preoccupied with attending college classes.
