Season titles for Farscape
 
If Farscape had a title for each season like Babylon 5, what would be those season titles?

The third season announces itself as the "Season of Death" with the title of its premiere episode, and it works as a subtitle for the rest of the season as well.

I'd have to think about the others.

Season 1 - Uncharted Territory - cuz of how the show is new and different.

^ Agreed with the season one title and yes season three is "Season of Death" I think season four should be called "Bad Timing" and season two I'm not sure.

To name the seasons after pivotal episodes that are excellent in and of themselves while also symbolising the overall arc of the season, B5-style:

Farscape
s1: A Human Reaction.
s2: Won't Get Fooled Again.
s3: Infinite Possibilities.
s4: Terra Firma.

With apologies to the OP, may I extend this idea to our other favourite shows?

Buffy
s1: Welcome to the Hellmouth.
s2: Surprise.
s3: Bad Girls.
s4: The Initiative.
s5: No Place like Home.
s6: Entropy.
s7: Bring on the Night.

Angel
s1: Sanctuary.
s2: Redefinition.
s3: Sleep Tight.
s4: Apocalypse Nowish.
s5: A Hole in the World.

Just want to point out that Crichton's return to Earth isn't the main point of season 4 - I think it was the Scarran arc - Hot to Katratzi (especially since I liked the way whatsername said Katratzi)

Since this has kind of been extended beyond Farscape, here's my 'season titles' for three of my top favorite SF series:
Babylon 5
Season 1: Signs and Portents (perfectly describes what the season is about, so I see no reason to change it)
Season 2: The Long Dark (From what I remember of S2, the season had a pall of darkness cast over it from very early on, and so I think that 'The Long Dark' is an adequate description of the season's tone)
Season 3: War Without End
Season 4: The Long Night
Season 5: The Ragged Edge

Battlestar Galactica
Season 1: The Hand of God
Season 2: Epiphanies (alternate suggestion: Lay Down Your Burdens)
Season 3: Crossroads
Season 4: Revelations

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Season 1: In the Hands of the Prophets
Season 2: Crossover
Season 3: The Die is Cast
Season 4: Crossfire
Season 5: Call to Arms
Season 6: In the Pale Moonlight
Season 7: The Dogs of War

Keeping things on topic, though, here's my suggestions for Farscape season titles:
Season 1: Through the Looking Glass
Season 2: The Ugly Truth
Season 3: Into the Lion's Den
Season 4: What Was Lost

Re: Season titles for Farscape
 
^ I think Through the Looking Glass is perfect for s1. season 3's choice of Into the Lion's Den kinda proceeds with the journey metaphor. Season 2 and Season 4 need to have the same journey metaphor - so Hot to Katratzi (even tho' there's a poetic justice to We're so screwed)

Re: Season titles for Farscape
 
coolghoul: I looked at episode blurbs for all four seasons of Farscape, and picked my season titles because of the arcs and themes that jumped out at me based on those blurbs. I was also relying, for Season 1, on my firsthand knowledge and remembrance of the episodes from that season that I had actually been able to see. For Season 2, I picked 'The Ugly Truth' because, in reading the episode blurbs for the season, the 'theme' that jumped out at me was revelation and the uncovering of information, and 'The Ugly Truth' was the only title from S2 that really fit that theme. For Season 4, the 'themes' that jumped out at me were confrontation and epiphany, and, of the various titles of the season, 'What Was Lost' struck me as being the most appropriate reflection of those themes.

Once again going beyond just discussing Farscape, though, I wanted to share my thoughts on season titles for Buffy and ANGEL the same way lvsxy808 did.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Season 1: Welcome to the Hellmouth
Season 2: Innocence
Season 3: Revelations
Season 4: The Initiative
Season 5: The Gift
Season 6: Normal Again
Season 7: Chosen
Season 8: The Long Way Home

ANGEL
Season 1: Hero
Season 2: Redefinition
Season 3: Offspring
Season 4: Shiny Happy People (alternate title: Home)
Season 5: Why We Fight

Ooooh! I'd discounted that because I don't think much of the episode itself, but it really does fit the theme of s5 well, doesn't it?
