Re: Farscape - anything I need to know?

I always thought "Die Me" was an overrated episode. "Plan B", now THAT is my all time favorite episode. Certainly the most action packed bombastic thing they ever did Oh wait, "Won't Get Fooled Again" is my favorite episode

Won't Get Fooled Again is Farscape being ubercool. Its just one of many, though. I so envy you-I watched the series and its no longer a "new" thing for me, more's the pity!

I need to watch this series again. Anybody have any info about the 1st season on DVD? It's not available through Netflix or at my local library.

Re: Farscape - anything I need to know?

My wife got me the entire series for our anniversary last year. She had to pay a pretty pricey sum for the first season on eBay. That was the only place she could get it. The rest she got fairly easily.

I've rewatched the first season up to and including "A Bug's Life." She got mad that I've started watching without her so I have to wait and let her catch up. Together we've just finished "PK Tech Girl."

She's not into it near as much as I am. I'm hoping she'll enjoy the show as the Chrichton/Aeryn relationship develops.

I know that my local Hollywood Video has the first season on DVD, but that's it.

They stopped making and selling the DVDs in stores.

SO glad I bought the series on DVD when I did!

Always envious of those watching my favorite shows for the first time. Farscape is just such a rich, complex universe. Enjoy.

RoJoHen, is that on Wilshire or Western? I work in Hollywood (Las Palmas Ave), and I would love to pick up the first season.

Hollywood Video is just a chain of video rental stores, like BlockBuster.

I'm in Illinois, as is the Hollywood Video I go to.

Re: Farscape - anything I need to know?

OH! I googled for the hollywood video closest to me in LA and I found two places. I called one of them and he had it for rent only. I might have to rent then burn.

Side note I was born in Illinois. Cook County Hosiptal. I've heard the neighborhood isn't very good, but it is my birthplace so I like it.

My only thought is when it ends the first time, stop. When they brought it back it struggled a slow death. Pretend those epeisodes don't exist.

^Eh?

It ended at the end of Season 4, and then they brought it back to make "The Peacekeeper Wars" miniseries.

Ben Browder as Commander Crichton is one of the funniest action characters ever. He's a wise-cracking Southern tough guy with a penchant for quoting from 20th century movies and TV shows.
Agreed. Browder is a great actor and it's a shame he was so wasted on Stargate SG-1. (He had his moments but he wasn't nearly as interesting as he was on Farscape. Nor, for that matter, was Col. Mitchell as interesting as his Stargate counterparts, Jack O'Neill & John Sheppard.)

Rygel is a great character and always my favorite on the series. But honestly, I had a hard time getting into Farscape sometimes because it seemed like it was just beeing weird for weird's sake. "D.N.A. Mad Scientist" was the episode that kinda turned me off the series. It was gross & disturbing.
