I liked Farscape more, even though the writing was much more uneven.
Unlike this poll, which is split right down the middle.
This is one of those polls where I don't know how to vote. Objectively, B5
is the better series - both shows are imaginative, exciting, have great ongoing plot threads, and terrific actors playing emotionally engaging characters. Farscape
is zanier and more creative but also often much stupider - two sides of the same coin. B5
has more interesting underlying ideas, but Farscape
does much better with humor and sexiness. B5
is the superego and Farscape
is the id.
So I voted for the one I just like better for reasons I cannot explain other than that I have to give the edge to the one that has Ben Browder.
