I am reading a paper by Darmon and Granville where they made the following claim, with respect to the generalized Fermat curve $Ax^p + By^q = Cz^r$. They said:

"... this (referring to the generalized Fermat curve above) is a curve in an appropriate weighted projective space. However this curve often has genus 0 (for instance, if $p,q$ and $r$ are pairwise coprime),..."

In particular, in such a case Faltings' theorem would not apply.

However I have a hard time seeing why this statement is 'obvious', namely because I don't have a good understanding of what genus means in a weighted projective setting. Further, why should that curve above have genus 0 when $p,q,r$ are pairwise co-prime?
