Guess what! It IS weird. And you probably WILL like it, precisely because of its weirdness. It's a wacky space opera with puppets and lots of prosthetic makeup that has the complex and hilarious human John Crichton at its center. You know, to give us an outsiders view of the weird, and the goal of him finding his way back home.

I found this rather awesome list that someone put together that lists which episodes are amazing, which ones you need to watch to keep up with the overall story, and which ones you should just skip altogether.
Check out the Complete Skip It Watch It Guide to see the list! I've also included a list of my personal favorite episodes at the bottom of this post too, in case you're curious.

The entire show used to be available on Netflix Instant, so maybe it will be again soon, but some of them are also on Hulu. But, I do have to warn you, if you watch it until the end, and you genuinely like the show and care about the characters, you're gonna be straight pissed at the cliffhanger. BUT GUESS WHAT! Do not despair! They made a miniseries to wrap up the series properly. Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars.
If you're really hardcore, the entire series box set is also available on DVD and BluRay. The one quibble I have with the series set is that it didn't come with a booklet with all of the episode titles. You know what I did? I ended up making my own booklet with episode synopses and little symbols that indicate deleted scenes and commentaries. That's how much of a geek I am sometimes! If anyone wants it for their own personal use, let me know and I'll be happy to provide it for you!
Now, without further ado...
