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).

Re: is farscape a good show

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.

Yea, they did alot of stuff that you thought was going to be the same old cliche, but, it turned out different then expected
