    Yeah, now imagine thinking that "Bad Timing" was the end. There was no more Farscape. It was CANCELED.

    We were not happy about it.

    It would be 2 years before "The Peacekeeper Wars" came out.

    I'm pretty sure I stared at the TV with my mouth hanging open for a solid couple minutes.

    Then I ran upstairs and saw my mom (who just tuned into the end). She said, "I don't watch this show, but if I were you, I would be so pissed off."

    Actually, yes. I seem to remember quite a bit of that going on. :klingon:

    I had the TV perched on the window ledge and was about to push it out when I remembered that I should be ranting on TrekBBS instead. :rommie:

    Of all the foot-thru-the-TV moments I've sat thru, that one has got to be the worst. Even TATV doesn't quite match it.

    I think she's referring to the Enterprise episode of "These Are the Voyages." The one where Riker watches a holodeck recreation of the signing of the Federation charter.

    Ah, thanks. Yes, that was a bit odd. But not in a [Dargo]Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo![/Dargo] way.

    Season Three is the best season. The first half of Four is so-so but the back half of Four is about as good as Three.

    I love Rygel, Chiana, Chrichton and Aeryn

    Not so sure about Crais, Zhaan, D'argo and Pilot

    Hate Stark and Jool

    It's a good show that doesn't hesitate in taking risks

    As I recall Jool was the only character in the show I actively disliked.

    There isn't a single character I dislike. A lot of people don't like Stark, but he's actually my favorite character from the entire series.

    Jool, of course, was supposed to be annoying, so if you don't like her, then the writers did their job.

    Grayza was never a regular so I didn't include her but I didn't care for her. I actually really loved Sikozu and Noranti, they're my favorite things about S4 aside from directly dealing with the Scarrens.

    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!

    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.
