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.
Better than I would have put it!

I would say that the show knows not to take itself seriously all the time, but when it must, it does. And as Lindley puts, the show goes places most science fiction shows don't. Sometimes the result might not be the best, other times it is, but it won't leave you indifferent.
Agreed with these. Farscape can be very funny and downright strange at times but when it's serious it doesn't pull punches. It also has, for my money, the best romance in scifi/fantasy tv.
