Glad to see another fan introduced to the show. I've been forcing a friend to watch it and he just doesn't seem to "get" it. Almost made me forget how much fun it is to talk about the show with people who also love it.
How far has your friend gotten? I've introduced many friends to Farscape, but it took most of them a while before they started to really enjoy it. As much as I opposed to the idea, I think Farscape is easier to get into if you start watching it during the big season finale arcs. I started watching it during the "Liars, Guns, and Money" trilogy. I had no idea what was going on, but it was so good that I wanted to watch more!
