Wow, Farscape was awesome!

I watched the whole series last fall for the first time, over about a month. I was depressed for a couple of weeks after it was over for not having any more to watch. Thanks to this forum for making me aware of it. I'd rank it as one of the best sci-fi TV series ever.

It's certainly my favorite show. You should check out the new series of comics. They're surprisingly fantastic.

Damn right!

Glad you enjoyed it, also. It's always nice to see Farscape get more attention.

I love Farscape. Funny, intense, and so fucking weird.


And Aeryn Sun. Even my fiancée had a crush on her.

Great show. I wish Ben Browder would do something other than Stargate (not that I know if or when there's more DVD stuff).

Re: Wow, Farscape was awesome!

I'm glad you enjoyed it! Farscape is my second favorite series, behind only Doctor Who.

I still need to get hold of the comics...

Re: Wow, Farscape was awesome!

I need to get back to this series.

I think I only got up to the episode when they meet Chiana....(who is very cute, I think)...

There was another actress I thought was cool and very cute; an actress from the episode PK Tech Girl....

There were a couple of episodes that seem to be too psychological for me, which--I think--turned me off.

I may catch it again in the future when time permits...

Definitely get through season one, it turns into a somewhat different show after that.

Farscape had the best SF romance in my opinion.

I very much agree. John and Aeryn just glowed with chemistry.

Indeed. John and Aeryn's relationship is how television romances should be handled (on a fundamental level).

Exactly, not just in science fiction, but I'd say it's one of the best TV romances, period.

Farscape indeed rocks. Great series. I finally got arround to buying it last year.

Also if you haven't seen the Peacekeeper Wars mini series, definitely watch that if you want to see how it ends.
