I'm glad you started back watching, Teacake. Farscape is hands down my favorite sci-fi show of all time. It is brilliant. DNA Mad Scientist is one of my favorites, the show is becoming more complex and the characters more layered. It only gets better from here, by the end of this season I think you'll be completely hooked.
I've noticed just in these two episodes there seems to be a lot more body language nuances between John and Aeryn and they are speaking to each other less as puzzled strangers. Now that may be because I just came off their Stargate seasons and I'm enjoying the actors more.. but really so much of this era of sci fi takes a season to really fly. Not sure if it will beat Bab 5 in my favorites though!
There were a few episodes so far that reminded me of overdone Trek stories, IET and That Old Black Magic but hey it was only the first 8 episodes.. I am full of hope!
