Episode 4, Throne for a Loss, featured a juicy one. Crichton compares the
Honorable mention to his Wile E. Coyote nod. It's not genre, but it's cute. Oddly, these dudes will show up again.
Episode 5 featured no overt Crichton geekisms, though the title itself is a sci-fi nod: Back and Back and Back to the Future. This episode DOES hold the distinction of being the first legitimately good episode of the series.
Farscape: The Complete Series is for sale on Amazon.com. Should you get it? Well, not for this episode, but... better days ahead.
Never found the time to watch the show but I remember it striking me as appearing better then some of the others Sci-Fi had at the time. It had that shot on film look that ST:TNG had. I would guess they had some of their actors under special contracts because they'd show up in other SF shows, Ben Browder being one example.
It's a fantastic show, one of the best space operas out there. It starts slow, but by the end of S1 it gets there.
I'll have to start watching it then, at least when I get a spare second again.
