Re: Complete Farscape on DVD Nov 17


Looking back, I'd say they were flailing about in the first season, trying to figure out what they had. They(the series overseers) knew they had something unique but it took a little time to figure it out. It was almost like they went. "Holy shit, we have pure magic here! But what spells should we cast?" They eventually decided on a nice, quiet, subtle FIREBALL spell. It gets really good, and it has a flavor like nothing else ever shown on TV. IMO, after Trek, of course, it's as complicated and fun as B5 and far less like a made-for-tv show than a transliteration of scifi lit to the small screen. You know how fans say, "Geez, if they'd just let a trufan make a series it would kick ass!" ? Well, that's Farscape.
