Re: FARSCAPE..worth the trouble?

Oddly enough, the only people I've ever personally met that didn't like the show didn't like it for the show itself, but simply because they use puppets for some of the aliens.
I've had a similar experience. Of all the criticisms of Farscape I've seen / heard, it's probably the most absurd.
(Of course, they're the same people who bitch and moan about Star Trek always having foreheaded "aliens," so I really don't know what the Hell they want!)
This is part of why it makes no sense to me. So many people bitch about forehead aliens. They get something alien and bitch about it because "they're puppets". So what? (It's particularly absurd in the case of one person who's a big Star Wars fan and therefore, presumably, can cope with Puppet Yoda. )

But considering both Rygel and Pilot are fascinating characters all on their own [...]
This is the other reason I don't get the "puppet" criticism. To each their own, of course, but Rygel and Pilot rock.
