    I am currently streaming through season #1. I have seen pieces of all the seasons before but never in episode order. Do we have any other fans out there?

    I loved Farscape! Spent the summer of 2007 watching it on Tivo.

    This is proving fun. Watching Babylon 5 again worked through season 4 but not season 5. Watching Eureka was a blast. Warehouse 13, not so much. Surprisingly, I could not do Battlestar Galatica. Knowing who the Cylons are ruins it.

    I liked the early episode but lost enthusiasm fast.

    Keep going. The first three Farscape seasons are treasured memories, but be warned that it falls off hard in the fourth's pilot episode, and takes a while to get even kinda sorta good again.

    If I ever decide to watch it, any place where I should stop?

    Yeah. I nearly stopped watching Farscape in season 4, which is a shame as the Season 3 finale had one of my favorite moments of television ever.

    If you are referring to Babylon 5, look at an episode guide to tell you which season 1 episodes to watch, and then basically all of seasons 2 through 4. Season 5 is basically forgettable.

    Thanks.

    Watch the pilot. If you are not already thinking about it, you might be OK. I gather my reaction is not typical.

    I finished s1e7 last night, and again I'm losing interest. The show is drifting away from wonderment and into monster of the week. Who wants to spend time in a universe of horror and pain?

    Wait really?
    S1E7, PK Tech Girl, is one of my favorite episodes.* I didn't find S1 to be that much of a monster-of-the-week season, but if it is bugging you I'd recommend watching S1E9, S1E10, S1E15, S1E16, then S1E18 and onwards. (Admittedly, some of the skipped episodes play a somewhat meaningful role in later episodes in S2.) Apart from S1E9, which is just a fun story, all play a role in advancing the plot and are directly relevant to the overall Farscape plot.

    *Admittedly, that may be in part nostalgia because it was the first Farscape episode I ever saw....

    It really isn't (well, after episode 9 it lets up).

    I need to get back to seeing this from the start. I don't remember all that much of it.
