My girlfriend and I just started watching Farscape on Netflix. I had started watching it before, but forgot a lot. I remember little bits and pieces, like the girl with blue skin and white hair showing up for the first time, some guy in latex (Scorpius, I think?), one or two scenes of D'Argo being whacked so he'd bleed clear, and that Kent McCord shows up for at least a 2nd guest shot.
And that's about it. And that's all I want to know about it so I can watch it with her and we can enjoy seeing it develop. So do NOT include spoilers here, don't include episodes summaries, and don't drop plot points for the story arc.
We got to the 2nd episode last night and she saw the description that included some kind of big bugs in it and didn't want to watch it. (This was after recently seeing one of the bug episodes in Primeval.) I told her that I didn't know how intricate Farcsape was, but that it had an overall story arc, and we might miss something. She still wanted to skip it.
So that leads to a few questions. I don't know how intricate or in depth any story arc is, but I'd like to know which episodes are important to the long term story arc. If it's shorter to list episodes needed for the arc (that we should make sure we watch), that's fine. If it's shorter to list the episodes NOT in the arc, that's okay, too.
I just want to be sure that we don't skip episodes that are important to any story arcs while watching Farscape.
