Well, whitedragon, you're entitled to your opinion, I suppose....

The official term for a fan of Farscape is Scaper.

Farscape is, without doubt, the best in TV Sci-Fi at the moment.

Star Trek? What, Enterprise? Don't make me laugh.

<that's my opinion. don't flame me; grow up and live with it>

It looks like we're all waiting for HapSlash to finish his Scorpius, Peacekeeper, Crichton and Aeryn skins, then.... :D

They do a a special all day Farscape in the Si-fi channel in the UK every Sunday. Totally fills the day and kills my social life. It's an excellent show, provided you can ignore the occasional 'alien' puppet that looks plastic and childish. I lke the way the group is slowly going mental with each passing episode, as they have to cope with so many different problems.
The whole show is darker and deeper than Star Trek, and the music is the best I've ever heard for a Si-Fi prog.

"Occasional." Don't ya think that's a bit of an understatement? ;)

That's the genius of having the episodes on a Sunday. When your hungover everything looks strange and alien.

Apart from the Chianna lady, she looks NICE!!! All the time. Everyday. Oh Yes.

Admit it though. She just doesn't quite have the chest of a, say, Seven of Nine. j/k ;) :D

No. That's true. It is an impressive bit of borg technology.

Chianna's got that crazy look about her tho. We are liking that very much!

Farscape is the best TV sci fi that I have ever seen, and thats my oppinion...


Whitedragon: they don't show reruns depending on how good the show is, look at crap like sunset beach, here in sweden they show it over and over and over again and it sucks, but hell... thats just my oppinion and most of my friends to.

Yeah either that or they can't pay decent dough to show good series... correct me if i'm wrong but if a tv channel buy license for a certain series they only have to pay once? so they don't waste money buying license for every rerun...

TNG.... <shudders> Ignore me. I'm allowed to.... dislike it if I choose.

Not all the puppets are 'childish'. Rygel and Pilot have come on leaps and bounds, especially ole Buckwheat.

Chi..... Hmmmmmmmm......

Ouch, whitedragon. You've wounded me. Did I say 'Don't flame me'? Yes I did, so kindly refrain, thanks. As others have pointed out here, any old drenn gets repeated over and over irrespective of the actual quality, unfortunately. Frequency of repeat is not a sign of quality, just how cheap it is to buy the series in the first place. Trek must be pretty dirt cheap, with (my own) emphasis on the 'dirt'.....

I expect he'll blast me agian for that. Strangely I can live with it. Can he?

END: Farscape - more adult, more intelligent, more subtle, more surprising. Just more, really.....

Nice one.

Ah well, I'm being sustained entirely by hope at the moment.

The hope that Farscape will be returning to our screens here in the UK in the autumn!

Woo-hooo!

Enjoy it, damn you! But remember this....

HAH HAH HAH HAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH! <Evil Laugh™ #34234>

Okay, in order:

A "blighter" is some sort of English (ie UK) insult. I'm not sure what it actually means, it's one of those ones that's lost in the mists of time.

As for seeing the last episodes first, if you've not noticed this always happens. During that big pause between the US seeing episode 18 and seeing episode 19 - 22 we in the UK see them all uninterupted by months of painful, spoiler-avoiding waiting.

This already happens, as I've said, so it will in all likelihood continue. It happened with most of Babylon 5 as well.

Captain Archer, you are so right :D

whitedragon, have no fear. I'm not in that much pain :) "Flame" was perhaps used incorrectly. Enjoy Star trek to your heart's content. Someone has to :D Just kidding.

<waves at Tyrion> I guess I mean like childish compared to childlike. Childish suggests lack of intelligence and sophistication, childlike is, I suppose, more an attitude than a state.

Sophistication, yeah, and childish, they're the words I'm looking for. Farscape is more the former and much of Star Trek is more the latter.

Note I say more, suggesting a prevalent pattern than a specific one. Both have each, it's just that, on the whole, Farscape is sophisticated far, far, far more often than Trek is. The lowest episodes of Farscape are frequently better than the average episodes of Trek. Truly outstanding episodes of Star Trek are, unfortunately for the series that (again) unfortunately defines the TV Sci-Fi genre, few and very far between.

But enough of this. Lets get back to:

FARSCAPE ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) :) :) :) :) :) :)
