I'm not saying I won't get back to it, but I haven't watched any of it since the last one I posted about, and I'm really not missing it, so it will probably be awhile before I decide to continue.
Sell your set on ebay. It doesn't sound like Farscape is for you. You shouldn't come back to it.

Re: Farscape or Babylon 5?

I only bought Season 1 (the public library has seasons 2-4, which is how I was watching the other seasons) and I like Season 1 enough that I'll probably rewatch it sometimes.

Re: Farscape or Babylon 5?

This thread makes me want to watch Farscape all over again. I just checked at Amazon.co.uk and the price of the complete set on Blu Ray just dropped to 40 pounds! I am so getting that!

The wife and I started a rewatch last week. Last night was episode 2. I'm happy to be married to someone who says things like "There's nothing on Tuesday nights, ya wanna watch Farscape from the beginning?"

Yes... I know you liked it enough... BUT, the things you didn't like... there's MUCH MORE OF THAT to come... the things you skipped over... THAT'S WHAT THE SHOW IS GOING TO BE ABOUT.

If you didn't like that stuff... I don't think you're going to like what is to come. I'm trying to save you time and grief here.

Me too. I haven't started yet, but once I finish up one of the streaming shows I'm watching on Netflix I probably will. They have all four seasons on there.
EDIT: Did anyone else watch the Syfy 20th anniversary special? Ben Browder, Brian Henson, and Rockne S. O'Bannon talked a bit about Farscape.

I'm still not convinced he wouldn't have liked those episodes. He chose not to watch them, which is different than not liking them.

The first season's fish-out-of-water premise is long gone by season 3, though, and the show was never really about John getting home.

Bumping this so that it doesn't get too old to bump. I just ordered Babylon 5 Season 2 from amazon, so I'll have something to post about when I get it.

Re: Farscape or Babylon 5?

Season 2 of B5 is when the actual arc starts. But watch out for the ugly transfer job, especially if you're upping it to 1080p.

kirk, just an fyi.... you cannot skip any eps of B5 from here on out. This isn't Farscape or, to a lesser extent, season 1 of B5 where you can get away with it. Every ep has an arc piece you can't miss and will be referenced in a future episode, be it in the a or b story.

Well, he could maybe skip "Gray 17 is Missing".

Re: Farscape or Babylon 5?

That actually has a pretty good B-story.

If anything it's "Acrs of Sacrifice" that I cringe at, although it too has some important parts.

Fast forward through the Jeremiah parts, yea, but, skip the BStory? No way, it is integral to explaining Neroon's final arc

Re: Farscape or Babylon 5?

I actually didn't skip any episodes of B5 Season 1. I don't usually skip episodes when I watch something for the first time, Farscape was just weird. While not every season 1 episode of B5 was great, I don't regret watching any of them (even if one or two were pretty lame). If season 2 is better than season one, then I will probably not be skipping any episodes this time, either.

"Gray 17" came to mind, but the B story is awesome and integral to the overall arc.
