Synopsis: John Crichton runs an experimental mission in a space module of his own design and ends up lost in some unknown part of the universe.

Reaction: This is a great series with plenty of imagination and creative imagery. You gotta love the Jim Henson workshop.

Random Trivia For This Title:

  • The character of DK is named after [Farsape] writer and producer David Kemper.
  • Originally Gigi Edgley's character, Chi'ana was supposed to be killed off after a few episodes. But the producers liked her so much they changed their minds and made her a regular cast member.
  • Ben Browder's wife, Francesca Buller, has played four different guest starring roles on [Farscape] (M'Lee in "Bone to Be Wild", Ro-Na in "Look at the Princess" and Raxil in "Scratch 'n' Sniff"), all three as antagonists to John Crichton. In the Fourth Season, she came back again as War Minister Akhna, another antagonist.
  • The show faced the very real threat of cancellation halfway through its first season when its production location, Fox Studios Australia, "forced" them out to make way for another production: Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones. The logistical problems of moving the large and expensive sets to a Stateside location would have been too cost-prohibitive. Fortunately, another studio was found nearby that was able to house the production (at Homebush), and the series was renewed for a second season.
