If this is your first visit to The Companion, welcome! Our members get answers to the quizzes, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. If you love science fiction, join us for a Free Trial.
The recent death of Mad Max: Fury Road’s Hugh Keays-Byrne really brought it into focus for us just how small and tight-knit the Australian filmmaking community is. Not only was Hugh cast as a recurring character in Farscape, but at one point he was being considered for the role of Ka D’Argo, which, as it happens, went to another veteran of Australian independent cinema.
Mainly this is an opportunity for us to reveal which big sci-fi blockbusters were shot in Australia, and flag up some really cool Australian films which you might not have seen. I’ll post some recommendations in the comments for you 🙂
You can take more Farscape quizzes on the free feed. Why not share them and challenge your buddies?
The Companion’s articles, interviews, quizzes, and livestream hangouts are produced by some of the smartest writers from the showrunners themselves to excellent new writers from deep within the fandom. They all truly live and breathe their favorite sci-fi shows and movies, from Stargate co-creator Brad Wright to Tessa B. Dick, wife of the late Philip K. Dick. Those same people who just took your brain to breaking point also produce behind the scenes long reads, interviews and original analysis that proves every bit as rewarding.

When we launched The Companion, one of the first things you guys told us was that you wanted quizzes and you wanted trivia. Well, we listened. This is still a work in progress, we’re still testing the tech and we need you to keep telling us what you want. So far you’ve asked for a device to reveal which answers you got wrong and you’d also like a league table to burnish.
