On a related topic, I've started watching this series, looking for something to make up for the contemporary dearth of interesting sci-fi. I've heard the show receive a lot of praise in the past for apparently subverting standard tropes, but I'm a few episodes in now and so far I'm not really seeing it (other than the muppets as non-humanoid aliens), or why it gathered so many fans. So far it feels like a watered-down version of Lexx. Is this one of those situations were the show finds its footing later on?

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

Keep watching. Its way better than Lexx.(which was just a horrible show)
Farscape can get very campy at times but almost every episode has some good dramatic banter between the main cast.
