    This is kind of old school sci fi serie, not far from Babylon 5, but that comparison also took the joy of it from me. During all episodes, I was wishing for something related to Babylon 5 to happen, and after the first season I realized I just wished I was watching that instead. It also appeared to have many filler episodes, which were entertaining, but too many.

    A more modern space odyssey which doesn't take itself too seriously. As such, the fantastic setting and characters can be fully taken advantage of. Annoyingly, the show often times can be crude and stray into very frustrating, uncomfortable territory in an attempt to be profound, funny, or creative. Farscape shines in its first season, the second is mediocre, and everything afterwards is awful.

    "Farscape" is not only fun, it is often thoughtful and probes issues of good and evil. [7 May 1999]

    Farscape is thoroughly first-rate in the special-effects department. As for the writing, it at least shows flashes of promise. [19 Mar 1999]

    If you watched the show with the sound turned down, you might well be blown away. But, as has been an unfortunate trend in non-Muppet Henson productions, most of the effort seems to have gone into making the series look great while giving short shrift to the writing. [12 Mar 1999]
