Watched it every now and again when it was on tv, didn't follow the plot though.

Rewatched it in like 2007, really good, then again some point in 2011-2012, got it all except peacekeeper wars.

Such a good show though.

I have all the seasons + peacekeeper wars + the 1st 6 comics, it was a great show and the comics do well with continuing the story. Every time I watch the discs I get sad when its over, and just start re-watching the series again. Another thing I like is how the producers/writers of stargate SG-1 poked fun at the fact Ben Browder and Claudia Black were in that show when they 1st appeared on SG-1 together (and later paid tribute to Farscape).

Used to catch it on TV about a decade ago, but didn't seriously sit down and watch it all until recently. And yes, I absolutely love it too. Scorpius was just the best sci-fi character ever.

It was good because it was different. A good different, a not-so-good different is the show Lexx, but even even that can be a good thing!

I liked it better than star wars / star trek. According to what I read they cancelled it because it was too expensive to make, not because it was unpopular.

Only problem with it is it takes a little bit for the muppets to grow on you. That and a decent chunk of Season 1 was physically painful to watch.

I really miss the old combo of SG-1 + Farscape that was some fun stuff.

I tried to watch Lexx, but they were just too obsessed with being different for the sake of being different. That and sticking phallic symbols everywhere. Some of the episodes were watchable though.

Yeah that's what I read as well, and then Syfy let them come back with the miniseries to give the show a conclusion of sorts. As even with how The Peacekeeper Wars ended they could continue, and they did with the comic books.

I rewatched Lexx at the same time, was trying to catch up on all the classic scifi tv i missed. Seasons 1 and 2 of Lexx were great, 3 and 4 got very stale. Actually the way 3 and 4 played out, it was effectively a single very long season, mostly all of the same characters.

Yup, watched it on it's original run through on British TV then got the full boxset about two years ago and it was partly because of Stargate, any resident Stargate fans will know why. Here's a hint

So yeah awesome show and awesome bad guy in Scorpy.

'200' is one of my favorite SG-1 one episodes. Especially the part where Vala is describing Farscape to Marty, and he basically goes, "I dunno what the hell you're talking about." Also was a bit funny seeing Amanda Tapping as Chiana, Ben Browder as Stark, Christopher Judge as D'argo, and Micheal Shanks as John Crichton. Would've been funny had they also parodied Rygel (or Scorpius).

The.... alien guy at the end was Rygel.

Sorry I don't follow or like the two main Stargate series. Maybe if there hadn't been a movie that was a childhood favorite of mine with a completely different tone, I could have enjoyed them more.

How could I miss that, Thor as Rygel seems just right, and I've seen that SG-1 episode a ton of times, maybe its because that segment is so short.

I finished watching Firefly and Serenity and i was after something to continue on to.

I obtained many different series new to me, Battlestar, Lexx, Andromeda, Stargate, Star Trek, Babylon 5 etc.

The first one I was informed to watch for a similiar type plot was Farscape.

First started watching it, it felt wierd to me with English speaking aliens etc, but it grew quickly.

i wont go into details, but when i watched the last Episode of season 4 on the train, i actually shed a tear. I simply bonded with the show and characters so much, the end was getting near and i didnt want it to end. (Only the peacemaker wars left).

I agree with dsbig, i am well into season 4 of Babylon 5, dont get me wrong its a show i really love but its the 1% missing that just puts it below Farscape for me. I think the thing Farscape really is the whole idea of the characters and how much of an affect they have on the viewers.

Recommendation is watch it.

Back to the list up top i have all them to go through before i loop back round and start on Firefly. Then after that its Farscape again. I cannot wait.

Greatest. Show. Ever.

I watched it in it's original run on tv in the UK. Definitely my favourite sci-fi tv show. I haven't actually got around re-watching it yet but I will. I honestly felt lost when the show ended .

Wonder what Claudia would have done, had she appeared in Stargate Atlantis, when a Wraith was rash enough to touch her breasts with his feeding hand.
