Re: Farscape Complete Series Deal of the Day
I got this yesterday, sat down and watched the premiere last evening.
The show's very nearly perfect in its way, with very little concession to the usual marketing concerns of "how do we get people to watch this?" It's hard to imagine it ever being wildly popular, because it asks a lot of the viewer.
It's the cheerful 'up yours' to every science fiction that went before, whilst blatantly ripping off vignettes from just about every genre in big and small screen history (over the seasons) which made it so completely unique. That and a cast that weren't afraid to go for it.
They couldn't hit an elephant at this distance.
