Go on.

All kidding aside, Harvey is one of my favorite aspects of the show. SF -- neigh, television -- has rarely been allowed to go to the wacky places that Farscape went to on a weekly basis. I think Community might be the only thing on television today comparable to it.

Damn you, I was going to reply with "But, Harvey has already been driven from the thread"

Re: Farscape or Babylon 5?

Yeah, Harvey was one of my favorite aspects too. Some of the show's best scenes were the Harvey scenes IMO.

Re: Farscape or Babylon 5?

Self Inflicted Wounds Part 2 (Farscape) - This was a decent episode, although overall this two parter has been just ok. I wish it had been jar Jar who died, not Zhaan, but atleast it was a purposeful death. The orange haired woman is really annoying. Maybe not Chiana annoying, although she is very close. I don't think the orange haired woman will stay on permanently. Hopefully the show will go atleast two episodes before there is another "We need to abandon Moya/No, abandoning her would be wrong" episode

It really does suck to see Zhaan go (and not just because it means more screen time avaliable for Jar Jar). She was a good character. I hope none of the other members of the original main cast die off. That said, with my luck season 4 will just be Jar jar, orange haired woman, and Stark (who isn't anywhere as bad as them,he's actually a decent character but I'm getting sick of his crazy spells) traveling around, with everyone else dead.

Jool starts off really annoying, but, she mellows and actually becomes a cool character, IMHO

I hated her at first too, but Jool does get better... unlike Jar Jar.

Re: Farscape or Babylon 5?

Well, I'm glad she gets better. She's been pretty annoying the last two episodes, pretty much just screaming and complaining.

Don't worry, he's not talking about you, he's talking about Chiana. And since most of us have a fairly high opinion of Chiana, we all see it as him paying you a compliment

Re: Farscape or Babylon 5?

Different Destinations (Farscape) - This...was not a great episode. I'm not a huge fan of time travel stories anyway (there are some ones I like, but also a lot I don't) and this one wasn't terrible, but just mediocre. There were a lot of annoying character moments in this (Jool is rapidly challenging Jar jar for the title of "Character I most want to see die". She was really bad in this episode. Stark was also annoying, but he still hasn't reached Jar jar/Jool's level. The nurse killing the general and condeming herself and everyone there (from that time) to death by doing it was just stupid. What really annoyed me was when she threatened John. Sure, he was trying to help the general escape, but it was the nurse who doomed everyone by killing the guy, it wasn't John's fault. I did like when Chiana and Rygel are in Zhaan's room, and neither of them can bring themselves to take any of her things. That was a nice moment. Overall, I didn't hate this episode, but its not a time travel story I enjoyed.

Re: Farscape or Babylon 5?

^I rather liked it just for being a deconstruction of the old "we went back in time and changed something and now have to fix it" cliché that shows like Trek have done so many times. The fact that (in true Farscape style) just about everything that can go wrong, does go wrong and there's no happy ending really appeals to me.

Oh and before anyone says anything....

I didn't recognize the title, but now that I've looked it up I realize I really liked this episode. And Jool is one of my favorite characters.

Re: Farscape or Babylon 5?

Babylon 5 is awesome, and Farscape is good.

Unfortunately Farscape devolved into "The John Crichton Show" after the first couple of seasons, which made it less good.

Babylon 5 has Delenn, and Farscape has Zhaan. Two of the best characters of all time ever, (Earth: Final Conflict has Da'an which completes the trinity) so it's really a flip of the coin.

Re: Farscape or Babylon 5?

Wasn't Farscape "The John Chrichton Show" from the beginning?
