Since I recently splurged on the Complete 40 DVD Boxed Set, Farscape marks an unusual point in my life where I actually started buying stuff to watch besides stuff to read.

I never thought I'd go out and buy a complete Sci-Fi series (of all things), but as it turns out, it is doing wonders for my mood.

Although (being more focused on character interplay than on "beaming down" and saving planets) it has faint and disturbing echoes of a limited-cast futuristic soap opera, it is turning out to be the right thing to blot out my stressful corporate reality every other evening.

Regular (at least in my neck of the woods) isn't nearly half as frelling fun.
