Being a complete tv-aficionada (means I love to watch it a lot), I just have to mention how good Farscape is.
Now I know, many think it just a sci-fi series like many others. I contradict that. I have watched Star Trek Generations, – DS9, – Voyager, – Enterprise; and it doesn’t even come close!
Farscape is about an astronaut, John Crichton, who accidentallygoes through a wormhole and ends up at the other side of the galaxy on board of a living ship, a leviathan called Moya. Since that day everything has gone terribly wrong for him. Desperate to get back, he has to live on this leviathan with several prisoners on the run from the Peacekeepers. Over the years, they form close relationships, still keeping hidden agenda’s whenever the opportunity presents itself, though. Too complex? Well go watch the DVD’s.
It also has great dialogues, a lot of puns and cultural references (pop culture). Here are some interesting quotes: http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Farscape
Come on out, Chiana. Look, I don’t have time to play this game. Durka’s gone Hannibal Lector on us. (Crichton -Durka Returns)
Have we sent the ‘don’t shoot us we’re pathetic’ transmission yet? (Crichton – Out of Their Minds)
Unfortunately, after 4 seasons the show got cancelled! (Why the frell did they do that!). There is a mini series called Peacekeeper Wars, which pretty much tie up the loose ends after season 4. I highly recommend that too.
Oh, and if you get the DVD’s, do watch and listen to the extra’s on it. It is really worth it!
