Back from beyond...,
This review is from: Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars [DVD] (DVD)
Why do people call Farscape "the Best sci-fi series ever?" Because it's endlessly inventive, has characters drawn on a human scale and with genuine emotions, and - that rarest of things for sci-fi - is studded with genuine wit and is frequently damn funny. Best of all, the characters almost never get away with it simply by reversing the polarity on the klystron generator or some such techie nonsense.
Farscape:Peacekeeper Wars reunites the galaxy's least efficient, most frequently bickering saviours after the two lead characters were crystallised by an alien vessel.
No sooner are the two lovebirds back among the living than tons of horribly beweaponed space cruisers drop out of nowhere demanding that JC hands over the plans to the Ultimate Weapon Of Doom that an alien race decided to stick in his subconscious for laughs.
On top of that, his borderline psychotic squeeze gets very, very pregnant and suffers human birthing pains ("I've killed men for less than this!").
Let's see: escape death by Slushie maker, fend off two warring empires, nearly die, help a lost race of space hippies recover their peacemaking powers, nearly die, regain control of your brain, wipe out dozens of Predators, build an Ultimate Superweapon, save the universe, nearly die and change your first nappy - all in the space of a couple of days. Pretty normal for John Crichton.
I'd like to see Picard try that...
