Re: Farscape - anything I need to know?

Backstept:

One thing I'd suggest is you should think of Farscape as a modern heir to Flash Gordon or Buck Rogers, only with dolllops of sarcasm and intelligence. At first, I had a hard time getting into it, partly because of the "muppets" like Rygel and Pilot. But once I ignored that, I really got into it.

I also think when they added Chiana is when the show finds its voice. Ben Browder as Commander Crichton is one of the funniest action characters ever. He's a wise-cracking Southern tough guy with a penchant for quoting from 20th century movies and TV shows.

I think you'll enjoy the shows, Backstept!
