A Scifi television program filmed in Australia from 1999 to 2003, produced by the Jim Henson Company. Staring Ben Browder as John Crichton and Claudia Black as Aeryn Sun. Farscape was intended to continue into a fifth season. However the show was cancelled in 2002 by the SciFi Channel because of the cost in production.
Farscape returned in 2004 as a Mini-Series known as Farscape: Peacekeeper Wars. Which recieved a Emmy Nomination.

The Plot
The series was focused on the crew of escape prisoners aboard the living ship Moya, on the run from the military organisation called the Peacekeepers.
Through out the course of the series it was discovered that the Peacekeepers were engaged in a Cold War with the Scarran Empire. Tension between both factions led to a outbreak of war during the Peacekeeper Wars.
Farscape

"My name is John Crichton (I'm lost), an astronaut, (shot through a wormhole) in some distant part of the universe (I'm trying to stay alive) aboard this ship (this living ship) of escaped prisoners (my friends). If you can hear me, (beware). If I make it back, (will they follow)? If I open a door, (are you ready)? Earth is unprepared (helpless) for the nightmares I've seen. Or should I stay, protect my home, not show them you exist. But then you'll never know … the wonders I've seen."

One of the best shows on tv. Confusing to the simple and dimwitted but great to people who know what good tv is. Great characters, special effects, story. It ended too soon. www.savefarscape.com
Farscape is "sexy, intelligent, and exciting".

cult sci-fi show watched by men with small penises and the women who love them.
My boss has mandatory Farscape marathons on Friday nights.
