Quirky and OTT in what way? I'm not necessarily opposed to those qualities, but I fear that it would be similar to Doctor Who, which is also quite quirky and OTT. That's kinda why I never got into DW, and I fear that Farscape may be the same way from what little I've seen of it.
Not really the same. Doctor Who is unabashedly looking to have fun
without too much concern for plausibility. Farscape takes itself more seriously from a story perspective, it just isn't afraid to go to some bizarre places along the way.
