ON WEARING OUT SHOES #2

Ambrose Bierce (1842-c.1914)

review of the Farscape miniseries on the ScapeCast

The latest episode of the ScapeCast is up, specifically episode #81, which includes a ten-minute review of the first Farscape mini by Chris Polansky.

If you want to just skip to the review, it's at 21.43 in the podcast. And it's a very favorable review, I'm pleased to say, with particular kind words said about my scripting.

You can download the podcast directly from the ScapeCast site or from iTunes.
