    DNA Mad Scientist is the first eps that really hit me that this Farscape show was not my momma's Star Trek. That NEVER would have happened on ANY incarnation of ST, imho. I was already hooked on the show from just the commercials I'd seen...but this cemented my long loving obsession with this frellin'tastic show. ;D

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

    Weird thing is, I didn't start watching the show till sometime towards the very end of Season two. So imagine how confused I was.

    For some reason I decided to watch the ep on Skiffy and then never looked back. I was hooked...even though I then had to wait out the break for season three to then air....

    I guess somewhere in all that, Skiffy eventually showed reruns of the 1st and 2nd season so I could get caught up.

    Yeah, that would have definitely been confusing.

    You've got that right! Really, Farscape is just not your standard sci-fi show. I think some people are put off by its weirdness, and the fact that they don't pull their punches. In my experience, Farscape is truly unique among other sci-fi shows.

    I'm impressed that you kept with it! I started watching them in order from the beginning (on DVD, VHS or whatever I could get my hands on), and I was still confused! For some reason, I only understood about 60% of the dialogue when I started. I think it was a combination of the accents, the original Farscape vocabulary, and Crichton's random exclamations.

    Well the John/Aeryn story got me hooked. Probably still my favorite ship of all time. (And to think I'm not much of a shipper to begin with when it comes to characters on tv.)

    Plus I had to find out what was going on with crazy Crichton.

    Farscape is definitely one of my all-time top 10 tv shows.

    I forgot about that. Crazy Crichton and two Scorpys would be enough to make anyone curious (I think by the end of the series, I was more interested in Scorpius than Crichton).

    I agree with you on the John/Aeryn thing. I'm generally against ship in... well, almost everything. But I make an exception for those two. Definitely the best ship I've seen in sci-fi (probably on any TV show really, since I can't think of anything better).

    I'd put Farscape in my Top 5, easily. This show, even with how many times I've seen the episodes over the years, still amazes me at times when I watch it. Farscape was a work of art IMO.

    I'd say it's tied with SG1 for my top #1 TV show. I can't choose between them, even though I like them for completely different reasons.

    I go back and forth with my favourite tv show between Farscape and Stargate SG-1.

    I tried to watach Farscape once and thought it was too bizarre. I couldn't get over the look of the puppets. Then I caught a Chain Reaction marathon on Sci-Fi. It was the last few episodes of season 3 and the first few of season 4. I was so unbelievably confused, but at the same time really drawn to this John Crichton guy (it even took me a few eps to figure out he was the main character I was so confused!).

    After I saw the incredible acting in those eps, I wanted to see every one. I started with Season 1 and thought......Thank GOODNESS I didn't see this first, I would have never continued! I personally don't like any first season episodes except for the pilot episode and....Crud!.....forgot the name. Where Crichton and Aeryn are on Earth. Anyway, I only liked those two episodes... until a certain black-leathered villain arrived. THEN I was totally addicted.

    And even now, when it is in the running for my favourite tv show of all time....I still don't watch the first season. When I want to introduce this wonderful show to someone new, I do so by showing them only the two or three key episodes of season 1 and then skip ahead until John goes justs a wee bit craaaazy (Crackers Don't Matter)!! I know if I can get them to that point, I will have them!

    Well I have to put it in my top 10 because there are other shows that I like as equally well and it's too dang difficult to try to place one above another one. So it's like ten #1s.....

    Yeah, it is difficult for me to place one show above another in my Top 5. So I have five #1s.

    Yeah, ranking shows is hard. But I will say that on my second trip through Farscape, it has risen up the ranks of my favorite shows quite quickly.

    I also, just started watching Farscape. They used to show it on BBC 2 years ago, I can't remember that much though so I got it to watch recently

    only up to Back and Back and Back to the Future at the moment.

    Such a good show. I love the puppets, mostly cause it looks so much more real than CG.

    I loved the first episode, it's got this great way of making you go "huh? wha? What the ****'s going on?" I'm sort of already hooked I just can't wait for the main story to get going.

    First off, welcome to the wonderful world of Farscape. It is great to hear that you are enjoying it so far. If you think it is good now, just wait. You haven't seen anything yet.

    That was pretty much my reaction as well. That first episode is awesome. I'm especially fond of the last scene where Crichton is recording the message.

    Yeah, Farscape's first episode was a very strong one, especially for a pilot episode.
