Episode 15 – GIFs, Farscape, Ludo, and text-based Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy awesomeness


Mel’s Recommendations:

TV Show: Farscape

  • An amazing Space Opera by Rockne S. Obannon and Jim Henson Productions that aired on SyFy back when it was still the Sci-Fi Channel.
  • Available to stream on both Netflix and Amazon Prime Instant Video.
  • Origin of the words “frell”, “dren”, and “hezmana” as ways to get expletives on tv.
  • Has amazing Puppets by the Jim Henson Creature Shop that you need to see.


(Addendum: I don’t care who’s involved with Under the Dome; it’s awful. I’m just glad it wasn’t Rockne Obannon 😉 ~M)

Music: “The Broken Bride” by Ludo
