Homebrew Farscape DVD

I was a little disappointed with the corner-cutting on ADV’s Farscape line of DVDs and just as a proof of concept thought I’d show that yes, you can make a cool-looking DVD interface without trying too hard.

Cover –

The best part of the cover is its designer-imposter motif. Hold it up next to one of ADV’s Farscape DVDs and you’ll find it hard to tell the real one from the home-made one. The quotes, episode descriptions and even tiny credits and badges help complete the illusion. Like they say, “The devil is in the details.”

Farscape‘s Scorpius in Episode III !

Okay, not exactly, but Wayne Pygram, who played the arch-villain Scorpius on the Sci-Fi Channel’s critically-acclaimed series Farscape will be filling Peter Cushing‘s shoes as Grand Moff Tarkin in Star Wars Episode III, as reported by SciFiWire:

The official Star Wars Web site has released a cast and crew list for Star Wars: Episode III:Revenge of the Sith, confirming among other things the appearance of familiar characters such as Gov. Tarkin, played by former Farscape star Wayne Pygram.

Finally, something to be excited about! Pygram’s portrayal of Scorpius in Farscape conjured up a determined, cold-blooded nosferatu, which I think is just the right tone to uphold the ruthlessness of the Tarkin character. (Plus, it wouldn’t hurt to inject some of the life Farscape brought to sci-fi into the Star Wars franchise.)
