  • Summary: Five years ago, astronaut John Crichton attempted to use the Earth's atmosphere to propel his ship, Farscape 1, at great speeds across the solar system. He went much further though and was sucked down a wormhole to a distant part of the galaxy and into the middle of a battle. He was rescued by a group of escaping prisoners and taken aboard their ship, a living ship. As the years went by, Crichton has made enemies, powerful and dangerous enemies. On his journey to find a way back home, he freed other captives who became part of the crew on Moya. Expand

    A superb little series. ... The acting and writing is top-notch. There's a witty undertone that's much appreciated and enough pop culture asides to keep you going through the arcane structure.

    In 1999, John Crichton piloted a spacecraft of his own design into a wormhole, ending up on another side of the universe, thus beginning one of televisions greatest shows. Farscape continues its brilliance by having Crichton finally work out the theorem for wormhole travel, having another old enemy join Moyas crew, the end (and return) of an adversary, the Scarrans taking centre stage as this seasons villians, Moya finally completing one of its missions (and beginning one of the shows finest arcs) and a cliffhanger so heartbreaking and tear worthy, that you'll curse the scifi channel for ever cancelling this piece of brilliance, then thank them for commisioning the Peacekeeper Wars.

    Farscape is my second favorite television show. It use to be #1 until Breaking Bad came along. I guess I prefer serialized stories where previous episodes lead into new episodes, not episodic like Gilligan's Island. Season 1-4 is great, Peacekeeper Wars wasn't so great, it was too rushed, they replaced the puppets with CGI, and some of the players seemed out of character. Expand
