    Anyone else tiring of this angle? It seems like they just keep complicating it/drawing it out for it's own sake. To me, it's gone past the point of adding anything to the story. The humorous tension has given way to a heavy, soul-crushing tension.

    The season finale had me wanting to scream. It seemed like hours of shots of intense looks and then finally as it seems some type of resolution has taken place, they throw out the pregnancy card to start it all up again.

    Is this all just in my head or does anybody else feel my pain?

    Well, I liked the season finale. I'm looking forward to next season.

    Was the ending too "contrived" for you? It seemed like vintage Farscape, to me.

    In and of itself, I enjoyed the show but, taken as part of a greater movement, it's getting a bit too much - crossing that line from serial into soap opera. I feel like they refuse to resolve the situation one way or another, using thinner and thinner plot devices to stave off any concrete resolution.
