Review: Farscape

The action takes place in our days, somewhere in a distant galaxy where astronaut John Crichton arrives via a wormhole. John is rescued by the crew of a ship called Moya; the crew is actually group of refugees on the run from the warrior elite called the Peacekeepers. Moya’s crew is made up of a warrior, a priestess, an exiled king, even a Peacekeeper named Aeryn, and John. John soon comes to be friends with some of the aliens that saved him, each from a different race, and they travel together in a living space on the ship that becomes their home for the rest of the series.

It is fascinating how the aliens are somewhat humanized and become friends of John. His goal is to find a way home and to defend the Earth from an alien invasion. The invasion is now imminent because aliens have now learned about our planet, which until then no one had heard anything about.

Some hard core Sci-Fi fans may find the series possibly a bit childish for their tastes; this series is nothing like Outcasts, for example, but it is an enjoyable series that most Sci-Fi lovers might enjoy. Farscape comes with a number of very fascinating ideas, such as for example the ship having its own consciousness and even a child, or the mind reading experiments, wizards, and many others. The series takes Fiction seriously, and it relies less on the Science aspect.

Verdict:

Besides having an original script, the show features some pretty good visual effects, plenty of action, romance, and even humor. This definitely is a series Sci-Fi action fans should give a chance despite its far-fetched ideas.
