Re: Watching Farscape for the first time (limited spoilers please)
Farscape, Babylon 5 and Firefly, three of the absolute must see gems in space opera/science fiction and just damn good TV storytelling, period. All three defy the conventions of their genres and approach their characters as PEOPLE, rather than just plot devices.
