Farscape, the story of Commander John Crichton who was doing an experiment in Earth’s upper atmosphere and got sucked into a wormhole and shot to the other side of the universe. Now he’s stuck on an alien ship with a bunch of escaped prisoners and searching for a way to get home.
It’s one of those shows that I’m surprised Tumblr hasn’t fallen in love with, sure it’s been off the air for a few (10) years, but considering the shows Tumblr does love and the problems that bug them about those shows, I feel like this is the perfect show for everyone to watch. Many female characters that don’t exist just to die and create man angst or fall in love with the main character. It has great continuity, fantastic filler episodes as well as amazing and non confusing over arching story lines.
Have I convinced you to watch this yet? If so, stop reading and go do it! If not, continue, there are mild spoilers ahead, but I’ll try to keep those to a minimum as I introduce you to the characters.
