    Thoth: You are almost there. Soldier on to the mid-season 3-parter and through the end of Season Two. You'll get major pieces of the story arc that is just getting going (Harvey, Scarrans, wormholes, Ancients).

    If you watch the Season Two finale and aren't jump-up-and-down eager to start Season Three (which IMO is easily the best of the four years), it may not be for you.

    And probably isn't. 'cause the truth is that Farscape is not for everybody. You need to have somewhat special kind of sense of humor (I think the fact that it has a lot of a little bit weird Australian humor makes it more difficult to watch for average audience) to truly understand and love the show.

    I agree with the above statement, it has it's very odd at times Aussie Humour that can miss the ball with audiences esp UK, where I am from, but I found it quite refreshing at times, the artistic take on it was almost second to none at the time, and the Humour was indeed very good, if you understood it.

    I hate to use the term "Marmite" but it is kinda, you will either love it, or possibly hate it, and that comes from a guy who doesn't usually say these things about everything, i hate the term really, but it is a very acquired taste and if you are captivated at the start or indeed at any part and become interested, you will love it all, and love the best bits even more, and will not forget it in a hurry.

    Farscape dose certainly rank amoungst the trippyest of TV shows, many episodes tht I remember are almost akin to being on drugs at times, others like being stonned, in a bizzare way, and episodes from all seasons constitue as some of the more bizzare, trip-like and whackyest:

    -Eat Me
    -Scratch & Sniff one of my all time fave one off episodes OMG LMFAO!!!
    -Revenging Angel
    -Loosing Time

    these are from season 3 which i watched not too long ago, TBH i forget names but i cn list so many more but it's a bit late, also other fans will have their own definition of bizzare and best episodes.

    cn anybody list any more, I remember themes, but titles are sketchy?

    Not only humour, but sometimes real life problems directly from Aussie land. "Taking The Stone" written by Justin Monjo is a good example here. Aussie scapers explained us that such teenagers clans were real problem Down Under at some point.

    I didn't know that. Makes sense though that the episodes are inspired by Aussie stuff

    I don't know if the teenage clan problem is exclusive to just Australia though. It might have inspired Justin to write that eps, but teenage clans are in the US as well, especially in bigger cities where the teens have runaway to.

    Hi! I'd reccomend watching each episode at least once. Important storylines and all that. For some reason, I don't like Rhapsody In Blue or Scratch & Sniff very much (will only watch Rhapsody In Blue when I'm determined to watch the whole season), while one of my favourite episodes is Jeremiah Crichton, which has a commentary on the Starburst editions subtitled "When bad episodes happen to good shows" or something, where they badmouth the episode. Or so I've heard.

    My friend will only watch episodes with Chiana in them, cos she's her fave character.

    "When bad things happen to good shows"

    And she's my favorite character too, but that's no reason not to watch the other episodes

    Wow! She's my favorite character too, although I like to watch all episodes. Those from the first half of season 1 i really like and Chiana is not in them

    I liked the show, especially early on. My favorite characters were pilot and the blue priest, forgot her name. Some of the episodes I didn't like tended to be the ones with the recurring season villain.

    The best thing to do, in my opinion, is to get an episode list of season 1, or write it out, watch at least the first part of each episode, no need to watch all of an episode I think if you find you dislike the first 20 or 30 minutes. You can then make a list of what episodes you like, ones you think or okish but you do not mind missing, and ones you really dislike. That way in the future you can just watch the ones on your list of episodes you want to rewatch and not the others. Then work your way through the seasons.

    I have seen all of Farscape's episodes (most many, many times), and I'll admit, I haven't liked some nearly as much as others. But, I never regret seeing them all, even the not so great ones (which there were not very many of). All Farscape's episodes, IMO, added to this great show. Every episode added something important to some Farscape character. That is why I recommend viewing them all at least once.

    I totally agree. Even "Eat Me" (my all time least fav eps) is worth watching at least once. It helps set up the long running arc for most of S3 and S4. I've always said that even a not so great eps of Farscape is WAY better than any "reality" crap that's on.

    I prefer to be called Sunny, Sun or SK. Thanks.

    Eat Me can easily be avoided (and should be, imo) considering that the very next episode has a "Previously on Farscape..." that explains everything.

    Farscape is (for the most part) amazing but I would recommend avoiding these episodes:

    Thank God It's Friday, Again
    Jeremiah Chrichton
    Taking the Stone
    Dream A Little Dream
    Eat Me
    A Perfect Murder

    Personally, I really enjoyed "Jeremiah Crichton" and "Eat Me". But, that's just me.

    I suppose it could, but I honestly do not understand why anyone who's watching the series for the first time would want to skip any eps the first time they watch.

    Aside from Eat Me the other eps you list are tolerable, to me.

    I prefer to be called Sunny, Sun or SK. Thanks.

    Just out of curiosity, what did you dislike most about "Eat Me"?

    It was too horror movie like for me. I'm not a big fan of blood and guts horror movies and for me, Eat Me was a lot like them. But I recognize that it was necessary to set up the long arc that followed it.

    The whole thing just felt pretty bland to me. Farscape can do a lot better than what that episode offered.

    I realize its importance to the arc of Season 3 but like I said: all of the important stuff can be seen in the "Previously on..." of "Thanks For Sharing".
