As for Won't Get Fooled Again, I know people keep saying its not like A Human Reaction, but its still too close for me to have any desire to watch it. I know its not the real Earth, therefore its just a waste of time to watch him walk around a obviously fake earth for 30+ minutes until he escapes/gets rescued/gets released and he's back on Moya like nothing happened. I just don't understand the appeal.
The appeal is that the episode is both laugh-out-loud funny in its' absurdity and chilling in it's conclusion. When I watched it for the first time it didn't take long before I had entirely forgotten that it was suppose to be about a fake earth and just rolled with the comedy as it goes more and more of the rails...

And on Farscape there is no such thing as "he's back like nothing happened".

It's like saying Schindler's List and Robin Hood: Men in Tights are about a man saving the common people from a dictator.
What does God need with a starship?

To get to the other side of course!
