General scifi thread, I'm going to assume we're allowed to talk about shows here as well.
I finished watched Farscape and thought it was good, I liked most of the characters but it all felt a bit jumbled, like trying to do too much in too little time. I also didn't think it was made clear which side Scorpius was on. I think there was a moment somewhere towards the end where he decided what he was fighting for but the whole time I was just waiting for him to backstab everyone else again like he did the dozen times beforehand. I think overall it had too many characters that it was trying to juggle around and they didn't really have time to flesh out any of the secondary characters as much as the primary cast.
Because of all that I think I like Lexx more, even for all the flaws it has in the later seasons. It kept it weird but simple, only a few real characters you have to keep track of and the much slower pace. The universe was also more interesting but they never really explain much of anything in it. I want to know more about His Shadow and the League of 20,000 Planets and how it was created, but after the first season it's pretty much mothballed and rarely mentioned again or explored in any kind of detail. Season 3 tried too hard to be 2deep4u and season 4 was a shitshow on all fronts, at least the finale was good though.
I have an endless craving for late-90s/early-2000s scifi but it seems I'm running out. What other shows should I watch now that my backlog is clear?
Hated where he came from as he was tortured by the other half of himself, as he was a mutated experiment, a bad hybrid. He was half peacekeeper and that made him run towards them and he thus was serving them but also only as a means to get revenge against the *looks it up because forgot name* Scarran, he hated Scarrans and wanted to be on the Sebacean side and also it shows him chimp out a lot when acting like a Scarran but was always trying to be more Sebacean as.. .well he was tortured and hated them. Do you not recall his story as a child? The only odd thing he did was the Scarran blood oath and they only did that to make a joke about le dracula jab Cryton or whatever it's spelled like kept making about Scorpius being 'Nosferatu' over and over again. I'd cut that out with how he hated them.
Also because he's Scarran it makes sense Scorp would just like torturing people due to the aggressive and cold hearted nature of that breed of which is why he's okay with the torture chair position and the bdsm shit in the show.
The Lexx was raunchy and awful comedy also. I could not get through it, but then again I kinda can't stand comedy.
