Re: Watching Farscape for the first time (limited spoilers please)
Farscape's season finales are actually FOUR part episodes; that is, four episodes AT THE END of a season, not including the start of the next season.
The Farscape season 1 finale is when it started REALLY, REALLY getting good.
Mild spoilers: the Primary villain of the entire series isn't actually introduced until the season one finale.
