Re: Farscape or Babylon 5?

Here’s the thing: Farscape is just as much a character study of one John Crichton as it is a space opera, and "Won’t Get Fooled Again" is as adept an examination of John’s psyche as any other episode that ever aired. Skip episodes like this, and you are not getting the entire story.

I like both “A Human Reaction” and “Won’t Get Fooled Again,” but like every other single poster has insisted: These. Episodes. Are. Nothing. Alike. Different tone. Different style. Very different context.

If you recall the bit of AHR you did watch--was it a surreal, lightning paced black comedy barreling towards a shattering, chilling conclusion? No? Then it’s not “Won’t Get Fooled Again” by any stretch of the imagination.

You said you liked "The Ugly Truth"? So did I, but it's far far far more pedestrian as a Rashomon retread than WGFA is as a riff on Back To Fake Earth.
