Re: Finally getting into Farscape... a couple questions, though.

I don't know how long it has been there, but I see that the entire series is available streaming on Amazon Prime.

Farscape has its detractors, but I thought it was great and am looking forward to re-watch

Main detractors I've ever seen were those who thought the show was too weird and experimental, which it certainly was at times, but it was and remains my favorite show of all time.
I just rewatched it when it showed up on Amazon Prime even though I have the old Starburst edition DVDs. I hope being available for streaming will get some more people to give it a try who missed it the first time!

I didn't get through Farscape until 2 years ago.

I had the first season on the original 2 episode DVD's and watched them when they first came out, but I didn't watch the rest of the series until 2 years ago. Great show!

Surprised you're so into B5 and you didn't watch all of Farscape.

I probably haven't seen the show in over a decade, I need to revisit it.

i loved Farscape. It just watched B5 this past year, always thought it looked a little cheesy.

Still one of my favorite shows of all time, but I cannot get people to watch it, and I have the same problem with Babylon 5. I guess Sci-Fi has too much of a stigma for some people, even today.

You do. With both of them.

As for Farscape, it was just a matter of buying the season sets and finally getting around to finishing the series.

I'm really glad I did.

It's the writing that makes B5 so good, not the sets.

Unfortunately it's the same shitty widescreen transfer that's been available on DVD for years.

Apparently there is a 4:3 transfer available on Vudu but I don't want to pay the high price for it.
