Ricky_Manning: Hello Scapers!! Hello PKOL's!!
kelley102673: hey ricky.. it's "red" from #farscape... just a quick question... how's it coming with the added responsibilities of executive producer this season?
Ricky_Manning: It's going fine. It has not been easy dealing with twice the number of groupies. But I am trying not to let the side down.
dragon43231: question here is zhan coming back or is she gone for good
Ricky_Manning: You dont really want to know.
rainier123: So if you are on the set right now does that mean you are in costume or do you get to hang around all normal for awhile
Ricky_Manning: I think you are confusing me with an actor.
slade95816: When the series was created, was there ever a long-term masterplan for plot development and character arcs? If so, how flexible is it?
Ricky_Manning: It's pretty flexible. Rockne (the great one) and David (the other great one) have a very very general arc in mind.
gatan_oz: For a show featuring australian Actors, and i believe is produced in australia why do you think there is so little australian network support for the show? we have had only first season shown rather sporadicly.
Ricky_Manning: I absolutely sympathize. And I wish I had an answer for you but sometimes the way of networks are beyond the comprehension of us mere mortals.
Blue-Adept: Is there anything you'd do different if starting Farscape from the beginning
Ricky_Manning: Actually, I cant think of anything.
Xenajules2: Ricky, Anth told us last night that season 3's ep #13 was the "funniest ever". Do you agree?
Ricky_Manning: Funnier than episode 306??? Hmmm I would have to get back to you on that one.
MichaelSteele: Why oh why did you take Zhan and not that goober, Stark?
Lymebt: Boogity, Froon! Here's a question... I haven't watched the news yet tonite, so I dunno if the WGA strike is on or not... but if it is, what will you be doing, since you can't write any?
Ricky_Manning: I'm going to disneyland!!!!
idiclady: Are you and TPTB pleased with fan reaction to season 3 so far?
Ricky_Manning: Fan reaction?
ScapeDabee: Hey (((Ricky)))..it is me, Dabee.....what is something that you have written and is coming up that you want us to particularly watch for....if you can tell us without giving anything away..... :)
Ricky_Manning: Hi Dabee!
Fortescue: Is there going to be more of a marketing program and advertising done in US? Also, are there any movies in future planning?
Ricky_Manning: To the first part, I certainly hope so! But thats out of our hands.
vacush: Hey Froonster! Will we ever learn how the war between the PK's and the Scarrans began? Or perhaps a little history between the 2?
Ricky_Manning: As I said earlier, You'll probably get a little glimpse. The Scarrans haven't gone away.
RhayleRihannsu: Are you going to be at the Farscape Con 2002 in Burbanks this year?
Ricky_Manning: I'm planning to be at this point. I bought some new Mambo shirts.
[Moderator thanks him for coming, various scapers express appreciation]
Ricky_Manning: Thanks for listening to me blabber. Round of applause for Missy who is deperately trying to type as I dictate over the phone (because they wouldn't let me type)
