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 But the people who originally made it (Channel Nine in Australia) wanted a big mainstream success, because Nine is always, always chasing the big bucks, and this show was so far out there the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.
Ah, but then it wouldn't have been special.
That is very true, I concur. I just don't know if it will linger like TOS, if you see what I mean.

Don't get me wrong, I do recognise a good show, even if I think it's not for me, and that's why I will persevere with it. Right now, I'm catching up on another neglected show, Fringe. Maybe after that.
