Re: is farscape a good show

My favorite science fiction television show ever. If Firefly would have continued, who knows, but I love Farscape and rewatch it at least once a year and I've been catching the odd episode on Pivot as well. Also, comics!!

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.
Don't forget it also got six four issue comic book miniseries, a 7 issue miniseries, and a 24 issue ongoing series. Most of them were overseen by Rockne S. O'Bannon, and are probably the only official continuation we're going get at this point. I haven't read them yet myself, but I plan to start them once I finish my rewatch of the TV series.

And most of those comics were written by TrekLit's own Keith DeCandido (who also wrote one of the official FARSCAPE novels as well).

I enjoyed the show. And perhaps it was just me but they at times at least attempted to put a new spin on an old story.
