ChatMod: Gigi and Ricky can you type to the screen?
fweakn: .......allllllooooo all
ChatMod: Try again Ricky
FrooniumRicky: there we go
fweakn: hey guys
ChatMod: Hi everyone, thanks for joining us here. I'm Ben Trumble for SCIFI. Tonight we're delighted to welcome actress Gigi Edgley, Chiana on SCIFI's incredibly popular series FARSCAPE, now beginning its 4th season. What can we say about Chiana? She's a thief, a liar, and a drama queen -- and FARSCAPE wouldn't be half as much fun without her. Joining Gigi tonight we're pleased welcome FARSCAPE writer Ricky Manning.
fweakn: very well spank you very much
ChatMod: First Question...
fweakn: ricky....cause sometimes he gets to work from home...teehhee
FrooniumRicky: sure, we can swap for a while
fweakn: Ryg....cause it must be entertaining working with a hand....just teasing
ChatMod: <Craig> to <ChatQ>: Gigi, I heard you had a wild time in NY when you were recently here. Something about a naked man and a rope?
fweakn: all though the other day I was speaking to Andrew Prowse about getting me on as a character with barely any make up....
ChatMod: <Jhato> to <ChatQ>: My question is this: I was wondering scince you play a "costumed" character on Farscape does this present a challenge to the rest of you acting career? and aswell does it present you with a little more privacy in your normal life, seeing as how many of your fnas wouldn recognise you when your pink :)
fweakn: I think I have been extraordinaraly lucky playing a character with such an awesome get up
ChatMod: <ILuvGigi> to <ChatQ>: Is it true you are going to lose your psychic powers in Season 4?
fweakn: sorry I'm typing so slow guys...it's early in the morn here...
FrooniumRicky: (it's 11 am, you bludger!)
fweakn: IS chiana actually going to be in season four ricky??
fweakn: and more sorrys for the dodgy spellign guys..teehee
ChatMod: <ChianaGray> to <ChatQ>: Do you and Froon feel that in S4 you get to delve more into Chi, what would you two like to see Chi do more of or the most?
fweakn: wrap earlier...teeheee
FrooniumRicky: grow, yet stay unpredictable
fweakn: I would like to explore chi's deep darker side....
FrooniumRicky: that, and Jello wrestling
fweakn: ohh and i would agree jello wrestling
ChatMod: <scapelover> to <ChatMod>: to Mr.Manning: is there any chance of another one of the classic whacked out Farscape episodes involving a Stargate crossover
FrooniumRicky: what's Stargate?
FrooniumRicky: I think that'd be a tad difficult on several levels
fweakn: Ricky where is my breakfast in bed you promised.....
ChatMod: Obviously nobody here knows what Stargate is...or they'd be tuned in right now :)
FrooniumRicky: sorry, dear, I burned the eggs
fweakn: Belly rumbling as I tap...
ChatMod: janeo17> to <ChatQ>: What did you order for breakfast and was there something written for Chiana that you were unhappy about her doing ? (Suns and Lovers)
fweakn: Chocolate sara lee cake....
FrooniumRicky: You will go far to find someone as cheery as Gigi, let me tell you
fweakn: Farscape ia a blessing to work on...even if they do bribe you with cold pizza very now and again....
ChatMod: <nervoustic> to <ChatMod>: OK, I have a silly technical question: How many microts are in an arn? Or arns in a solar day and so on?
FrooniumRicky: "Not enough"
fweakn: I is an actor you think my spellings bad...maths is hard...teehee
ChatMod: <BadByte> to <ChatMod>: question: when will stark be gone for good from the show?
fweakn: never.....never...he's just been hiding out in chi's quarters
FrooniumRicky: this is Farscape, hence... You Never Know
ChatMod: <Mementh> to <ChatQ>: Do you think Chiannas ability since the energy rider (to see some of the future) will be used more?
fweakn: Now i is feeling a little under pressure...eeeekkk
FrooniumRicky: Oh, just make something up, Gig
ChatMod: <Wyvern998> to <ChatQ>: This one's for Ricky. Where do the ideas for the episodes come from? Are they in anyway relatd to real life experiences? Or are they based on the collaborative minds of all you quirky writers?
FrooniumRicky: Real life experiences?
fweakn: I would love to dapple in that pool more.....
FrooniumRicky: (go for it, Gig)
fweakn: it's been fantastic exploring such a lush gift
FrooniumRicky: to continue
fweakn: I was researching on how I wanted to play with the visions...it was funny because each director has a slightly different way of shooting the vision sequences.....so it's always interesting to see what it looks like in the final cut....
FrooniumRicky: (altho the short answer is "David Kemper")
fweakn: which I usually see after you guys see it....
ChatMod: <nooneimportant> to <ChatQ>: what's more flattering, being immortalized by becoming an action figure or being appreciated by fans like us?
fweakn: Being able to play with yourself all day long is always fun....
ChatMod: <MikeW> to <ChatMod>: So what's it like to work with an American (Ben) when the cast is most Aussie/English?
fweakn: What the all american chunk of hunk....
FrooniumRicky: am I still American?
fweakn: or at least some cold pizza
FrooniumRicky: double damn
fweakn: It's nice to see a bit of culture in Australia....
FrooniumRicky: how'd it go? We figured you'd have fun with that one
ChatMod: <QazzaQY2K> to <ChatQ>: Thid Question is for Ricky: Hi, What do u think they new scifi show's will compareand compeate to Farscape's New season?

ChatMod: <cumbyguy> to <ChatQ>: This is for both Gigi and Rick....i was wondering what other projects, if any, you were working on?

FrooniumRicky: I think it's reasonably safe to assume nobody will be bored
ChatMod: <dascape1> to <ChatQ>: Can you tell us whether or not Crais will be returning at any point in the future?
fweakn: though chi likes to get into them whole heartedly...so quite often if you watch closely when we starburst..everyone does a small jolt...and chi's flying through the background...weeee
FrooniumRicky: Of course she can't tell you
fweakn: arn i mean arn
FrooniumRicky: We'd spank her and not give her any cold pizza ever again
ChatMod: <DieHardWithA44> to <ChatQ>: Ricky, is it hard to decide when to kill off a popular character and how.?

fweakn: bring it on....
ChatMod: <dascape1> to <ChatQ>: Ricky, as a media student in scriptwriting and TV production, what advice can you offer me with regards to Sci-fi writing?
FrooniumRicky: I can only offer the late great humorist Max Shulman's advice to all aspiring writers:
ChatMod: Just a reminder, in FIVE MINUTES everybody better be rushing out of here to turn on the television...
fweakn: ooohhh the suspense........
FrooniumRicky: I reckon that's a question for Ben
ChatMod: <Mementh> to <ChatQ>: This is for gigi, what do you think was the funnyiest/most comical scene you have done on Farscape?
fweakn: I don't know but it felt pretty reeeaalll....mmmm
FrooniumRicky: (as she does)
ChatMod: <DieHardWithA44> to <ChatQ>: Gigi how do you ever get a chance to get a career acting on something as amazingly cool as Farscape?? they just have an add said "Casting for sci-fi space show" or what?? because nothing ever comes to good ole South Carolina
fweakn: The love scene with Jothee....Whan they painted my whole body grey and put a modesty patch over me pink bits...theee...modesty patches look a bit like band aids...and halfway through the scene the patch decided to unstick
ChatMod: Gigi and Ricky, thanks for logging. It's Saturday, you guys shouldn't be working this hard! We're going to open the floor now. And everybody in the east, the midwest, or with satellite TV better be running for the remote control
