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..
Yes, but it is probably the most important "less than 20%". Like others have said, in a series like Farscape you really really, can't judge an episode just off of the descriptions. What makes Farscape so great isn't actually the stories themselves, which are not bad by any means, but it is the way the stories are told. Sure some of the basic ideas are cliched, but they tend to tell them in a outstanding and unique manner. Even when the stories aren't that great, the acting, and writing tend to still be very good, and most of the time are able to counteract any aspects of the stories themselves that you might not like.
