The Finest Sci-Fi ever????,
This review is from: Farscape : The Ultimate Complete Collection [DVD] (DVD)I would say, out of the variety of Sci-Fi shows I have watched that Farscape would be the finest one I have ever seen, but I haven't seen all of the competition so it's not fair for me to say.
In my opinion, the characters drive the stories, rather then the Star Trek style character changing who they are to fit the story of the week. Nothing works twice on our mismatched crew of prisoners and our resident relate to human character.
Thankfully Farscape doesn't always try to be realistic, allowing for spiritual moments as well as science, saying that we have a long way to go before we can understand space travel, let alone how to get along together on our tiny little planet.
Farscape was bold, it took risks at all turns and never went back on it's decisions, sometimes that stiffled them, but other times it shone. That attitude made it enjoyable to watch and far realer then any of the reality programmes that swamp the TV.
I highly recommend...a handful of episodes are right Clangers, but I advice perseverance because the ending is one hell of a trip.
Peace and infinite love to you
