Armageddon Expo Clip  
Ben at the Armageddon Expo in Melbourne this past week. He talks about science fiction on Australian television in this particular clip and again I will say that I love the listen to him talk about this kind of stuff because the sucker is smart and you can't come away from listening to him without learning at least something about acting or writing.

Oh man, he couldn't be any more right. The men running channel 9 that produced Farscape here were pushing for more sporting content at the time and I can't remember if it was Ben or Claudia that told the story of the channel 9 launch party that year (1999?) and how they were completely snobbed by everyone because their dinky little sci fi show was being ignored and totally under-represented by the big wigs. All of the other shows channel 9 launched at that party were gone within a year. Farscape continued for 4. Ben has a very sensible take on the situation and a smart head on his shoulders for the industry.
