I'm upping this thread, because I've been watching the nightly reruns on scifi(sunday through thursday at midnight). Man, what a great show. I've always liked it, but never had a chance to watch it often enough to understand what was going on. Now the cancellation saddens me even more.

Any "best episode" nominations? So far I'd have to say the season one finale is my favorite. But the body-switching episode from a few nights ago deserves mention, if only because it guest starred those evil bird-like puppets from Dark Crystal. I'm not sure if Henson co. is lazy, or if they reused the puppets as a nod to nerds like me. But either way, I thought it was cool to see them again.

My favorite was "Crackers Don't Matter".

"This stuff smells like puke."

"I predigested it for better coverage."

"IT'S PUKE?!!"

'Crackers Don't Matter' and 'The Way We Weren't'. TWWW is a great character-focused episode while CDM is the funniest thing ever.

I haven't seen a lot of those...which I guess is a good thing, since I still have some quality episodes to look forward to.

But yeah, Crackers Don't Matter was great. Goofy, but in a good way, as Farscape tends to be.

The great thing about Farscape is that when the writers are given absolute freedom on a script they give their all. Episodes like 'Crackers Don't Matter', 'Revenging Angel' and 'John Quixote' are the most inventive sci-fi I've ever seen and should be where sci-fi is heading. Instead we get Buffy rip-offs like Dark Angel. It seems like by losing Farscape we lost a whole load of hugely creative writers who dared do something different.

And there's always quality stuff to look forward to in Farscape. The only weak season was the first for obvious reasons, after that it's plain sailing.

Upping this once again, to express my outrage. Scifi has stopped showing them sundays through thursdays. Now it's only sundays.

Sigh...what a bunch of crap. They didn't even finish all 88 episodes.

But if anyone cares about my opinion, I will point out that season 3 fucking rocked. I don't think there was a single bad episode in there. My only real complaint is that they brought back Aeryn's mother, after Crais "shot" her. Shameful retcon!, I say.

Is season 4 any good? I've heard complaints about it on other nerdy message boards, and I don't think I've seen a lot of season 4 episodes on the "best of" lists. Maybe it's unfair to expect it to be as good as season 3, but I hope the show hasn't completely gone to hell.

Season 5? what the hell? production ceased after episode 22 of season 4. The last episode being called "Bad timing".

I will say that season 3 is probably my fave it had soem really classy episodes. Season 4 is good but there are some episodes that I was not overtly keen on. Still it is better than most of the crap that was out at the time.

I've got TV Zone's Farscape Special here and it basically mirrors what's been said here. Season 4 was weaker then season 3 mainly because David Kemper took over much of the writing and wanted to attract new viewers (one of Farscape's major weaknesses). The begining of season 4 was meant to reintroduce all the characters and storylines but that sort of got lost so those episodes aren't so great. Later on the episodes are much better.

And there is no season 5- Sci-Fi split up season 4 into two seasons of 11 episodes in order to fulfill their contract (the sneaky little bastards).

Farscape you either love it hate it or just confused about it!, personaly i love it was one of the best shows on TV for a long time (apart from Futurama)  i was really pissed of when it was canned! cause it was becoming a very good show, and the end of season 4 was a pisstake! "To be continued" how could they tant us!

Anyways, I also just read the Slashdot thing and i also read it on Savefarscape.com and IGN ,  im not really sure what they are talking about, is it Farscape coming back like it was before the cancel or is it a anim series?

anyway if anyone can shead light on this for me that would kind, smile

Still nothing official from Henson, so I'm trying not to get too excited.

...but oh holy crap! I hope the show comes back. I finally saw the final episode just a couple weeks ago, and the cliffhanger depressed me horribly(even though the main story of the episode wasn't that great, if you ask me).

If it does come back, then think about it. Firefly, Family Guy, Farscape...that's three unfairly cancelled nerd-favorites, that begin with the letter F. Futurama would have to be next.

I saw on my Trek message board, that next week's TV guide, will have an annoucment that Farscape is returning in a four hour mini-series, which is supposed to wrap up all the loose ends from the last episodes. 

I hope that it does happen.

<Edit>

I went to tvguide.com, they said in the article that Browder and Black will return, and the mini-series is set to start shooting in December, this year, for a release next year.

It will not likely appear on Sci-Fi, but either on another channel, or, in syndication. 

Yes!  That's what I'm talking 'bout!

Ok, calm down! I have no idea what you're talking about, with your "101" stuff. Are you asking for stuff that pisses us off? Then I'll have to go with that episode with Aeryn's mom. "The Choice", I think it was called(I'm not 100% on all the episode titles though).

Come on, Aeryn's mom turning up alive was a total retcon! Not to mention the whole episode was boring. Season 3 was such a great, emotional season. But this angsty episode fell flat. One of the worst episodes ever.

But if we're going for favorite episodes, Won't Get Fooled Again is probably the best hour of television I've ever seen. It made me laugh, it made me cry, and it launched one of my favorite plotlines/characters on the show--Harvey!

There were so many weird/disturbing scenes, that I feel like other scifi shows would have chickened out on. This is the episode that showed me that Farscape isn't your typical pantywaist scifi show.

Honorable mentions go to Into The Lion's Den, Dog With Two Bones, and the We're So Screwed trilogy(save for that ridiculous "fetal DNA" plot twist).

Er... what? I think your referring to the BBC show 'Room 101' where celebrities are invited to discuss their pet hates and banish them to 'Room 101' (taken from 1984).

Personally, I don't think I'd do away with anything in Farscape. I loved everything in it, even the bits that made no sense.

*scans the last page*

...who are you talking to? I don't see anyone calling Bringing Home The Beacon a good episode. But seeing as how I like the episode a lot, I'll defend it.

First of all, it has scarrens, and they are sexy. Plus it was exciting to watch--just a tight, fast episode that seemed to move with a sense of urgency. And it had a lot of great dialogue. And I always love scenes where John goes crazy, like the whole "baby/beacon" deal at the end. Come on, it was a good cliffhanger.

I wish I could be more specific about the things I liked, but I only saw it once. What was your problem with it?

I guess i had this thread confused with that on another board.

I think I've figured out how the series ends. And  Thats caused me to look at it in a different light. A less good one. But just in case Im wrong dont tell me.

If you've seen the final episode of season 4, it has little to do with that. However, on the subject of Earth and the Peacekeepers...
