7 reasons you should watch farscape

Farscape is like the Anti-Star Trek, the villains are the clean cut military types, the heroes are for a former member of the evil military, an astronaut flung into the far reaches of the galaxy, a psychic plant person criminal, a honorable warrior criminal, a former caligula type emperor criminal alien, a hedonistic anarchist alien criminal (seeing a theme here), and on occasion a psychopomp who is also guess what? a Criminal. So while the heroes are at best a little insane or a little shady, the villains are racist, militaristic, clean cut and thoroughly vile.

1. The Jim Henson Company made it.

The Jim Henson Company made it, the reason Star Trek has humans with shit glued on their heads while Farscape has aliens who do look the part.

2. If you liked Guardians of the Galaxy, this show is basically Guardians of the Galaxy the tv show before Guardians of the Galaxy was a thing.

and this isn't a dig at Guardians of the Galaxy, I fucking love those movies, and the fact that they are so like Farscape is okay with me.

3. It might satisfy the firefly fix

6. The Characters

7 reasons you should watch farscape

The characters are all unique, they've got their own quirks, personalities, character arcs, and they are all suitably weird.

7. The Villains

In the one shots you have things like an evil sorcerer vampire who feeds on the psychic energy of a person, space pirates, beserkers who wear laser gauntlets and inject a person with drugs, and other good weird stuff. You also have evil militaristic commanders who chase the protagonist through the far reaches of the galaxy.

  • A real tragedy that this got cancelled, and that it never really got finished off properly.

    This was actually pivotal to my decision NOT to watch various shows until the whole thing was finished, and didn't end on a never-resolved cliffhanger, so to speak.

    I know they did Peacekeeper Wars, and it kind of wound things up, but not properly, in my opinion.
