    I have just watched the season 2 finale to Farscape.
    Having heard so much about it, I knew what was coming, and I knew what was going to happen in the next episode, but this has to be one of the greatest finales to a TV season I have ever seen. It is also only the second time I have cried watching a show (the other was B5 - Sleeping in Light).
    Whilst every actor was brilliant in this, Claudia Black and Ben Browder were fantastic, and I can't wait to get into Season 3.
    This show just keeps going from strength to strength, much like Buffy did, and is always surprising you.
    I just have to recommend this show to anyone who hasn't seen it, as it is rarely mentioned.

    FARSCAPE is by far the best SciFi show in a long time, maybe ever.
    I loved The Next Generation and Deep Space Nice.
    I loved Babylon 5.
    I would put FARSCAPE a notch above them (in MY opinion).
    I'd say that, in style, it's more like Star Wars than Star Trek, but kind of a combo of the "feel" of both. Though that's not really fair because FARSCAPE is really is own show with it's own style. It certainly has a very cinematic quality.
    It is unfortunate that it does not get the exposure it deserves. Being only on the SciFi channel, there are lots of people who don't even know this show exists.
    If someone is a fan of science fiction, they are doing themselves a disservice if they haven't checked out this show.
