Farscape: Season 1

I had a sudden craving for Farscape the other day, so sat down with episode 1 and spent the next few days working my way through for the first time in 3 years or so. I was surprised by how much happened in the first season, I thought many of the events happened later than that with the first season being more stand alone episodes. But by the end of the season we’ve already met many of the foundation stones of the rest of the seasons – wormhole aliens, Moya’s baby, Scorpius and various other people who’ll make reappearances. I was impressed with how big the series could seem even with just 6 (7 if you count Moya) main characters, only 4 of whom are actually actors, thinking on to later seasons Moya does seem to get rather crowded with various hitch-hikers. A superb, if somewhat bizarrely disconcerting, start to a series that somehow manages to have been consistently innovative, entertaining and disconcerting throughout it’s run.
