Howdy I just got my series three DVD's for Farscape yesterday and it got me thinking if anyone here likes or has even heard of the show. If you like it, why do you like it?
I personally think it is the best sci-fi show on at the moment, with interesting characters and plot's. Anyway let us 'k  wink

I love Farscape.  Everytime I think they've taken the concept as far as they can, they take it even farther!  I can't wait to see how they finish off this season.  The only problem with Farscape is that the plot has gotten so thick that it's hard for newcomers to get into it.

Still, on Friday April 5th, we'll get an all-new Farscape!  (And the repeat of the last new episode will air on March 29th for those of you who missed it.)  Both at 9PM ET.

Yep, I've always been a sci-fi nerd, and the hype around Farscape didn't disappoint when I actually saw it.

Nope.  That's Invisible Man, which preceeded Farscape for awhile in the schedule (IIRC).

Farscape's about astronaut John Crichton who, during an experimental space flight, was catapulted to the other side of the Universe by a wormhole.  (They never say where he is because he doesn't know where he is and noone's heard of "Earth."  Still, "other side of the Universe" is as good a description as can be made.)

He makes enemies of Crais, a peacekeeper -- military group of the species Sebaccen (which look like humans, but are slightly different) -- when he crashes into Crais' brother's ship right after exiting the wormhole.  John survives, of course, but Crais's brother doesn't.

He stumbles onto Moya, a huge living ship, where he meets D'Argo (a Luxen) -- warrior race a bit like Klingons, Zhaan -- a priestess who's species is plant not animal, Pilot -- the pilot of the ship who's fused with Moya, and Rigel -- short, once dictator of his world, who tends to hover around on his throne, fart helium, and snatch everything in sight.  Along the way they pick up Aeryn -- peacekeeper proclaimed "contaminated" by contact with John.

The characters grow and change (unlike on other shows where a character change is for one episode only) and they're constantly adding new ones.  Oh, and did I mention that Rygel (along with a ton of the aliens) are muppets?  This is a Jim Henson production, after all.  (Well, not actually muppet in the "Kermit the Frog" sense.  More like the "Kermit the Frog took some LSD" sense.   wink)

I haven't even scratched the surface (and I've left some really cool characters out).  Quite a good show.  Rent the DVDs if you can.

I agree. I've seen a small handful of episodes, and usually I have no clue what's going on. But still, I like it, especially the more stand-alone episodes. It has some interesting stories, and the direction is really good(it's amazing to see all the stuff they can do on a cable budget). It almost makes me want to buy the DVDs, but eh, things that cost money suck.

I do not check out the show as much as I would want to. I have seen about 3/5ths of the episodes and love it. Some of the characters are incredable, also the world is great, the aliens are better then the "guy with nose ridges" The pilot is my favorite character.

I love Farscape! I haven't seen it in forever though, being a ridiculously busy nursing student who up until recently could not afford blank video tapes. I also never learned to program my vcr due to never having any blank tapes.

POTENTIAL SPOILER:

The Crichton double thing was great! I'm mad they killed the one that finally made it with Aryn. Saw it coming, though. You know they have to keep the sexful tension... it's kinda like the Fry/Leela dynamic. In fact it's exactly like that. You got this average guy thrown into this crazy world of aliens and foreign technology and this strong, inaccessible, beautiful woman with a painful past who he sees as his first and strongest link with his new environment, he falls in love with her, she has feelings for him but is too emotionally closed off to let anything happen.
The only time anything ever happens between them is when some kind of law of physics or biology allows it to happen in a way that will later be negated. They're like non-cartoon versions of Fry and Leela!
 Did you see the cartoon episode though?  smile


I'm done.

OMG!  I just got hooked on this show.  Everyone's always talking about it, so a long while back I watched one ep.  It was "The Way We Weren't" where it turned out Aeryn had helped kill Moya's pilot.  It was okay to me, but I didn't understand who or what anyone/thing was.  But since then, it's been at the back of my mind and I've officially entered the world of the "she-geek".  I came upon it accidently really.  I got into Edward the Less which quickly transferred to Chi-Chian and today I saw a banner for "Fractures".  With buttloads of time on my hands, I found a Farscape site and immediately read the lengthly episode re-caps for EVERY ep from "Premiere" and "I, E.T." to "Fractures".  I am totally hooked now, so call me a semi-Scaper.  Now I can't wait til Friday!  smile

I haven't actually seen many episodes, but the ones I have seen were great! Especially "Out of Our Minds", the body-switching one. Crichton did EXACTLY what I'd do in that situation.

Oh yeah, I saw that one. I agree with Kryten. I went though a stage a couple of months back when I was watching repeats of season 2 in the afternoon and new season 3 episodes at night. I got into it a fair bit during that time. Oh, and did I mention I live across the road from where it's made?

Whad he do?  The site was vague on that little detail.  Puh-lease someone tell me what he did that every stereotypical guy would do in that situation?  Does he have the same attitude as Fry in "Minds Apart"?  What??  Somebody tell meeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!  I don't like it when everyone knows something I don't.  And none of that "I'll never tell"- Brittany Murphy crap either.

Ben- that's sooooooooooooooooooo cool!  Where is it made?  Have you seen any of the actors in person?  big grin

Yep, the apartment block I live in is literally across the road from Fox Studios Australia. When I get my camera back I'll take photo and post it. I only moved in a week ago, so I haven't seen anything interesting.

Well, there's this scene where he's stuck in Aeryn's body, and he's just dancing around and shakin' em. It's so true! That's what we'd do!

Oh, not like that, come on now. Give me some credit. I'm not the type to kiss and tell - not when I think I might get caught, anyhow.

See, these aliens attacked us, but Moya used the defense screen we'd recovered from the Zelbinion. Somehow the combination of the energy beam and the defense screen caused a bizarro physical reaction, and *poof* next thing I know I'm in AERYN'S body! I mean, like, my consciousness is, or something. And she's in Rygel's, and - ick - Rygel's in mine. BOY was it weird. But, Aeryn's body, man, let me tell you, I thought that thing was fun from the OUTSIDE. I'm not even going to try and describe what breasts feel like, I mean HAVING breasts feels like... Suffice it to say if I got to keep Aeryn's body I might never leave my room again.

Ultimately it was nice to be me again, but ogling Aeryn's never gonna be the same now that I've walked around in there. What a gyp that I got to see how much fun it was, and now it's hands-off. You know, Aeryn and I should really sit down and talk about that.

This is one of the only times I'm glad I'm British. The two parter which will be coming up for you soon is great with a few surprises in it but not as much of te final episode of the series. I'm not going to spoil it but the ending will make you want to know what is going to happen.

K, I'm gonna take a risk and ask a Farscape-related question.  If it's a *BAD* question, then by all means tell me.  Here goes...does anyone know where I can download "Revenging Angel" or at least the cartoon portion of it?  I keep hearing about it and I read the part where Aeryn turns into various sexy women.  laff   I really want to see for myself.  Oh, and I found some quote website for it and the whole thing with John and Aeryn is a total soap opera if I've ever seen one...I'm in heaven!  love

True allot of the work is done in Austalia but some credit should alos come to England, many of the guest actors are English, Ben Browders wife for example, Ben Browder was trained in England and of course the Creature work shop is based in London.

Thanks Kryten.  Don't know why I forgot about this thread (after all I *did* post in it   wink).  Maybe my mind was still reeling from ending of "Into the Lions Den Part I: Lambs To The Slaughter."  (Just love those ep titles.   big grin)  I have no clue where they're going to take this and I'm pretty sure that any guesses I make will be way off.  (Just one reason why I love Farscape.  They constantly set up for a cliche and then do something totally different to keep the fans guessing.)
