Re: Farscape or Babylon 5?

Well, out of the first two seasons (44 episodes), I've skipped about 6-7 episodes (some completely, one or two I watched a few minutes of). Thats less than 20% of the episodes. I do kind of get what people mean when they say I shouldn't skip based off of synopsis (although I'll say that Taking the Stone was completely justified, and I have absolutely no second thoughts about skipping that one). That said, I still feel that I did the right thing by skipping the episodes. Theres nothing like a run of bad episodes to burn you out on a series. If I had suffered through the Princess Trilogy, I probably would have had to give myself a long break (and time to forget it) before returning to the show. I'm not saying that others may not like these episodes, but I know what I like, and I know what I dislike. I don't like stories about a fake earth where everything seems the same but its actually different, or stories that have someone marry a person that they don't care about for stupid reasons, or episodes with Jar Jar as the main focus. I could waste hours of my life watching these things and hating life the whole time, or I can skip them and watch the episodes that are entertaining to me. In the end, I want to enjoy myself when i watch TV. Farscape entertains me most of the time. When it doesn't, I skip the episode that annoys me, and go on to one I'll enjoy. Its not something I plan to change (although looking at season 3 there doesn't seem to be any episodes I'd automatically skip, atleast not for awhile).
