Re: "Farscape" shoutout on last night's Community

I Farscape rewatch thread from not long ago exists. I'm sure you could use that one.
I myself got the series for cheap and plan to rewatch it eventually.

Wow! I'm impressed. I would have thought that a big-network sitcom would go with something more familiar to the average viewer, like STAR TREK or maybe even GALACTICA. But an extended riff on FARSCAPE? That blows my mind--in a good way.
No joke. I generally expect people to have no idea what Farscape is, so this is hilarious. I wonder how many people watching Community even got the reference.

Okay, now they need to reference THE 4400 . . . .

Going to start a thread about your re-watch? It could be fun.
Hm, I don't know. I've seen such large sections of the show already that I don't know if I'd have anything interesting to say. I didn't even do such a thread for DS9, of which I hadn't seen much at all prior to watching it recently. I won't say rule it out entirely, but any time I have considered a thread like that in the past about other shows, I've decided against doing so based on the above reasoning.

Well, even if you don't have a whole lot to say, it's certainly a good way to generate discussions about the episodes. And, since you've already seen the whole run, the inevitable spoilers that will split out won't be that big a deal.

It's ironic that when the other guy says "Stargate is better" you realize that eventually both shows share the same lead actors.

They really need to have Ben Browder or Claudia Black make a cameo!

but it's like the writer (Avib) didn't finish watching Farscape.
That's true. But they actually mention Farscape by name; and the theorizing about Sabaceans and wormholes shows more than a passing familiarity with what was actually on the show.

That's more then we usually get.

I think they were trying to show just how far away from the average viewer Abed really is.

What kinda weird is that I realize that occasionally I’m saying things in an Abed-like way. Anyone else noticing that about themselves?
