I think once you get past "Jeremiah Crichton" the show really takes off.
Ha! That's the next episode I'm supposed to watch...I've gotten as far as "Rhapsody In Blue" (1x13...though some websites list it as 1x12).
There's a website that ranks tv show episodes by votes cast (www.geos.tv
), so I went to check out Farscape--out of 90 episodes (88 episodes + Peacekeeper Wars which they count as 2 episodes), "Jeremiah Crichton" is ranked dead last, at #90.
At least this is the worst the series gets, and they get it out of the way early on in the show's run.
