As I recall, the narration changes, but the music is the same in season 4.
I really love the part of the season 4 theme with "look upward and share the wonders I've seen", especially with the images of Chiana 'looking' upward, John & Aeryn sharing a moment, and and Pilot looking full of wonder into the camera.
The change in narration is why season 4's theme is my least favourite. I can't tell you why exactly, because it's been a while since I last watched it, but it put me right off, and not in the way the change in music come season 3 did (I eventually grew to love that and it became my favourite version).

Re: Farscape - anything I need to know?

I think Season 3's narration has a bit of magic and mystery to it. Season 4's narration is much more straight-forward, so I think it loses something.

I like the one where there's almost two tracks going on simultaneously for the title track - kinda commenting on the first one - "I meet xxx aliens [My friends]".
Which, if you pay attention, really foretells the entire season 3 arc right there in the opening credits. God, I love this show.

Another reason I think the Season 3 opening is the best of the bunch.

Have those been collected in trade paper backs yet?
No; they're still only on issue #3, maybe #4.
Okay, thanks.

Re: Farscape - anything I need to know?

the change in narration and music seems to indicate a change in Crichton's view of where 'home' is . . . he's no longer lost in space because Moya is his home

Exactly. He even says: "or should I stay and protect my home?"

I agree with your interpretation, especially given the following line..."Or should I stay, protect my home, not show them you exist"...which I always interpreted as meaning he needed to keep Earth's identity a secret from the PKs and Scarrens.

Re: Farscape - anything I need to know?

in Fractures (I think that's the episode) why didn't Crichton listen to all of Stark's message? Pilot interrupted and that was it . . .

Do you mean the message in Stark's mask? That's the only message I recall from the episode, and I distinctly remember him listening to all of it. Right down to playing rock-paper-scissors with his holographic self.

Yep, that's the message. He begins to listen to it, then Pilot cuts him off. And then at the end of the episode he finishes it.
