The great first season of a cult series,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Farscape: Complete Season 1 (Box Set) [DVD]  (DVD)
Farscape is among the very best shows in television history, perhaps the best science-fiction show ever. It took risks, in just about everyway. Like in this first season where they really took the time to let the characters grow and find some common grounds. This is precisely what I like best about this season, the slow build up to the final eps and the seasons that followed and blew our minds.
Some people say that the first season is boring and recommend watching the pilot and then moving to the last few eps, usually starting again with A Human Reaction. That, I think, is missing the point of this season completely. How can Family Ties be so moving if you haven't watched the entirety of the season and don't know at what price the Moya crew bought their friendship?
I recommend Farscape to all science-fiction fans and anyone who wants to watch a truly original show.
