Hello World!

Isn't Farscape such a cool show? It had a (very) shaky start, but by the end of the first season it began to hit its stride, and never really looked back.

I say this because it's so bright and active in contrast to the relatively dour Enterprise. For a series that's supposedly "fresh and sexy," the latest Trek voyage feels very old hat. On the other hand, Farscape manages aliens that are really out of this world, and characters can be sexy without rubbing gel all over their bodies.

Even 'Cold Front,' which I was really looking forward to, came off as badly-executed. For an episode that was supposedly setting up an arc, it was very lacklustre - there was no heightened sense of wonder, no sense of things to come - compared to something like Babylon 5's 'And The Sky Full of Stars' it was very conventional.

Perhaps I'm just too Trekked-out, maybe I was expecting something just a little bit special. At the moment, however, it's Farscape that has my attention.

Hence this week's poll - what is your current favourite sci-fi show?
