Re: Farscape - anything I need to know?

You know, this thread has inspired me to start watching this series again. I've made it up to "The Flax" so far. Outside of a couple of bumbles very early on that it made it hard to keep watching (though "Premiere" is still great), I've already been reminded as to why I love this show so much.

The Choice was heartbreaking

I love when they depart from the usual format and suprise me completely. Won`t get Fool Again, Scratch and Sniff, that one with the cartoons. Amazing episodes!

Re: Farscape - anything I need to know?

I really want to watch the whole series again. I'll probably get right on that after I finish watching the other half of SG1!

I watched "Jeremiah Crichton" this afternoon, with the "when good shows go bad" commentary. It's about the only way I can get through the episode, save for select scenes. Glad the cast and crew realize and admit that it's a dog.

Re: Farscape - anything I need to know?

Farscape, as noted in previous posts, is an acquired taste - but a unique take on what a space based sci fi adventure could be. The characters definitely make the series. Most of them change over time, which is a credit to the show's legacy. It took risks, some paid off, some did not. However, a show that can make you feel for muppet characters like Rygel and Pilot is a rare thing. Believe me, Rygel and Pilot recived more development as characters than most live people get in other tv shows of the that era.

This is easily one of my favorite episodes, but it took watching it a couple times to realize it. You reeeeeeaaaaaaally have to pay attention to every bit of dialogue to figure out everything that's going on.

"You rescued our lifepod after the command carrier imploded. I'm no longer a prisoner because of you. So when the others left, I stayed to repay the debt." ~Old Woman (whose name you don't know yet), Dog with Two Bones

Newbies always seem to miss that line.

And I actually enjoyed "What Was Lost," but not until I watched it for a second time.

That two-parter is actually one of the most important, pivotal stories in the entire show. It's just you don't realize it because it's all done through this weird drugged-up dreamlike haze.

Quite true.

One of my favorite things about Farscape is that you have no idea how important certain things are until it's too late. I noticed this especially with season 4. A lot of people claim the first half of Season 4 isn't that great, but it does so much that you don't even notice to set up the rest of the season.

While the Old Woman was annoying at first, in the second half of the season she became one of my favorite characters.

Totally agree. Once she and Sikozu start behaving as a part of the team, they both become much more enjoyable characters. At first, they're new and weird and not necessarily trustworthy, so it makes sense for us not to like them as much.
