The first season definitely has its high points. But, like TNG and DS9, the show got better as it found its voice.
It's not horrible, it builds the characters and universes, but a lot of the stories feel like true and tried old school sci-fi.

When season 2-4 and the miniseries just seems completely insane.

Welcome to my favorite sci-fi show that lasted more than one half-season!

Till the Blood Runs Clear: Woot, Magda Szubanski! She should be in more roles like this. I never once thought of netball.

I liked how her eyes popped out in the grease that was dusted all over her face.

Some great structures in this one:






I adore this kind of Blade Runner in the desert style.

These dog like aliens were great! The sniffing, the costumes, that they were intelligent and yet pack like.




AND the grooming scene, loved this. Unspoken moment that emphasizes how different they are from us.




Nice Worf joke too.

Unfortunately I was eating something when they cut into D'Argo's tentacle. I actually gagged. I guess that means the scene was a success

The whole bonding scene under fire between John and D'Argo was rather too much. So much effort put into them defining their relationship, I bet the slashers had a field day with that.

Kind of amused at how hot headed D'Argo is, he sure makes himself a lot of trouble.

I love season one as well. John the naive pacifist in a crew of people who distrust each other is a lot of fun.

I'm impressed by the fact that I'm halfway through season 1 and no one is really friends yet.

It was a bad thing when I just watched the show for the first time last year. By then I wanted to get to the parts that people told me were so different and off the wall, not rewatch Star Trek episodes get redone.

Re: teacake does Farscape: Spoiler Free first time viewing

Rhapsody in Blue: Who ARE these blue lunatics?! That was pretty interesting, big reveal on Zhaan's crime and weirdass reaction from Crichton.

"You killed the guy you were having sex with?"

"You killed the guy you were having sex with Zhaan!"

Not, you killed your lover! You killed your mate!

The makeup for the Delvians is so impressive.. Zhaan's makeup is the best I've ever seen.

I kept looking at the women's hair and wondering what it reminded me of.. and suddenly I knew. Blond Barbies after their hair has turned into a fluffy rats nest.




And we never heard what dream Aeryn had..

An interesting and oddly compelling episode. I enjoyed the way the pious sanctimonious-ness was shown and not blathered about the whole time. These Delvians are seriously odd and I'm very curious about just how much of a horror the homeworld is. Totalitarian dictatorship? Don't answer that, this is a spoiler free thread


I wonder if this is her place or a real nice hotel. Seems annoyingly color coordinated what with the sheets, the fruit and the roses.

HAHAHA!

Oh teacake, once you finish the show I hope you go back and reread what you write because you have said something that is incredibly funny to me in an ironic sense.

And every sci-fi show is better with blue people. It's why Smurfs was such a hit. And the fact that the only female Smurf must be a whore, or that all the male ones are gay. But that's a completely other issue.

Oh you would not believe the weirdass things that popped into my head after reading this.

Please do NOT tell me if this is true, or close, or not true, or not close



And yes, BLUE.. once you go blue nothing else will do. Though I prefer Bolians to Andorians.

Yay Farscape!

I actually really hated DNA Mad Scientist myself. The first season was good, but I'll join the chorus of "It gets so much better."

I'll tell you in 3.5 seasons.

But the Delvians are my favorite species in all of sci-fi.

Yay Farscape! My favorite ever.

I recently let some friends borrow my box set containing the first four seasons. I intentionally did NOT give them my copy of "The Peacekeeper Wars." When they get to the end of Season 4, I want them to feel my pain!

Yea, tell them they can watch it in 2 years. But, hey, unlike us at the end of S4, at least they will know it does exist and they won't be left hanging like that forever
