I enjoyed it.

I would put it somewhere between 5 and 10 on my top 10 list of SF shows.

Re: is farscape a good show

This thread just reminds me of how much I wish Jim Henson Productions would do more stuff geared towards older audiences. They do have a few things adult oriented things released through Henson Alternative, but that's mostly just really goofy stuff, I would love to see them do serious SF/F like Farscape again.

They should just go ahead and do a whole Muppet Farscape revival...with Kermit as John Crichton.

That would be awesome.
Animal would have to be D'Argo.

I enjoyed the hell out of the series so much, I had friends over every week to watch two episodes at a time because I wanted other people to watch it, too.

I'm sure Disney would have no problem buying the rights to Farscape if they wanted to.

Re: is farscape a good show

farscape was cancelled so that the SyFy channel could expand upon their Tremors movies with a live action series that was significantly cheaper to make and therefore logically MORE profitable than Farscape if they generated the same viewing figures.

Obviously you should watch Tremors first, becuase someone in a suit decided it was more worthy of life than Farscape, and therfore better.

Re: is farscape a good show

Hopefully will get around to watching it again someday. In Australia the last season was savagely cut to fit an G-rated timeslot for a Saturday afternoon by the Nine Network who broadcast it (and I'm not sure if it ever turned up on paytv).

The nine network also co-financed the first season. They though "muppets = kids" and unlike the fans were not impressed with what they got which was okay - the fans were not impressed with the treatment it got from Nine (which also fucked up TNG/DS9/VOY and B5).

Farscape is a fantastic show. Probably behind Firefly in my list of "Shows I'm angry they cancelled".

It was weird when I was told Pilots secret identity.

Farscape is a wonderful show - one of my top 3-4 shows ever. That being said, at least it had 4 full seasons and a full mini-series to tell it's story which I feel it mostly got to do. Yes, a full season 5 would have probably been preferable, but given how hit and miss season 4 was I'm not so sure it would have the best thing for the show.

Firefly was screwed with out of the gate and given some the worst treatment I've seen by the networks to a show in a while. It's really too bad too, Firefly would have been Joss's crown jewel and a brilliant show filled with an amazing, talented cast.

At a Farscape convention a couple of years ago, Rockne O'Bannon mentioned that Brian Henson was deliberately holding onto the rights to the property, because he loves it so much and was (still) holding out hope that he may get to do something with it again in the future.
