Re: Farscape or Babylon 5?
I read episode descriptions when I watched the show, and I had no problem with it. But I also stayed away from the more spoilery stuff, so that probably helped. I think as long as you stick to one or two sentence summaries of off the DVDs or sites like wikipedia it'll be fine. But I would stay away from to many spoilers though, B5 is a show best gone into spoiler-free.
Over the course of many encounters and many years, I have successfully developed a standard operating procedure for dealing with big, nasty monsters. Run away. Me and Monty Python.
