    I've just started watching this can you believe, it slipped through the net. I'm up to episode 15, it is getting better.

    I think the first season does take a while to pick up, mostly because of the stand alone episodes that set up the universe etc, but trust me, it WILL pick up. It's an excellent show. Each season is better than the last, so my opinion is:


    S4 > S3 > S2 > S1


    All of them are great, of course. All seasons end on a high note, especially S2, possibly my favorite season finale of them all. S1 also ends on a high note, however S2 starts a bit slow, a few stand alones much like S1.


    S3 and S4 have substantially less stand alone episodes, making them the 2 best seasons of the show in pretty much everyone's opinion.


    Anyway, never give up. One of the best sci-fi shows I've ever seen, but some people just don't give it the time it needs to pick up.

    I think I would agree with Taviov, the show does get progressively better and Season 4 is definitely the best Season.

    Whenever I start another mini-marathon of "Farscape", I always start off with season 3, episode 18 "Fractures" and go from there to finish off the season. After this, I skip to season 4, episode 5 "Promises" and watch every single episode thereafter. I simply cannot help myself. Although, when I bought the complete set in one box, I did restart from the very beginning and watched until PK Wars. All-in-all, I've marathon-ed through "Farscape" dozens of times.

    Don't forget, you still got "The Peacekeeper War". That's another two hours of non-stop action.

    Yeah I need to finish watching the whole series now. I've watched season three and four. Best Buy always has them at like 50 or 60 bucks a season and noone else carries them.

    FYI: You can get the COMPLETE SERIES from Amazon for around 80 bucks. http://www.amazon.com/Farscape-Complete-Ben-Browder/dp/B002GP7ZWI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1275067900&sr=8-1

    I'll say season 3.

    Season 4 was amazing too...but season 3 had a good change of things.

    Then season 2.

    And season 1 on the bottom because too many fillers and it took a while for me to get used of the show

    Season 1 is the best because the cast isn't all buddy buddy. Cool season.


    I don't think if an episode is episodic that it is necessarily bad. Especially if you've watched the hell out of the show. Doesn't really matter if the episodes tie into eachother.
