Trivia

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 (2002). 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. See more »

Quotes

[Rygel is advising Crichton to forget about Aeryn]
Dominar Rygel XVI: When a woman, whether she's a wife, a lover, or a slave you've purchased to be a wife or lover, leaves you repeatedly... take the hint.

Crazy Credits

The end credits of episode 4.1 ("Crichton Kicks") is accompanied by Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture instead of the regular theme. See more »

Alternate Versions

North American DVD releases include footage not broadcast in the US or Canada. Producer Brian Henson says on a DVD commentary that every episode include 2-3 minutes of footage that is only broadcast in Europe and Australia and not in North America. These scenes are cut to allow extra commercial time on US and Canadian stations. The DVD releases restore these scenes. The introduction special Farscape Undressed (2001) includes a couple of these scenes. See more »

Farscape, the best sci-fi show ever created!
24 January 2007 | by ScreamerMMSee all my reviews

I am a die hard science fiction fan. I mean really, i read it i watch it i even listen to the theme songs. The Farscape series and the finishing mini series is the absolutely best science fiction show i have ever seen. The show only aired very shortly on cable TV here in Denmark, so i bought all of the episodes on DVD.

Pay homage to this show, it does almost everything to a degree of perfection. Ben Browder and Claudia Black are a great set of actors with very impressing chemistry. Farscape beats everything, Star Trek, Star Wars... The only other show that is keeping me occupied right now is Battlestar Galactica, which is also god, but not nearly as much.

If you have not wathced this show yet, do it. For me... it never gets old.
