Mmmm, I watched the first series or two, but it failed to gel with me. I may have to try again.

The thing about Farscape is, the like of us get it, because we're into SF. But the people who originally made it (Channel Nine in Australia) wanted a big mainstream success, because Nine is always, always chasing the big bucks, and this show was so far out there the audience soon fell away. If it had been closer to a ST type show, it may have been on longer.
I'd heard the story was channel 9 heard "puppets" and thought they were getting a kids show.

And when show aired they just didn't know what to do with it.

But probably hte biggest travesty was the cuts the bastards made to show in a G rated time slot which were pretty brutal.
