Hope your week is going by swimmingly, streamers, and that you have time to spend on TV shows, rather than the quick fix of a movie, as the only one here is Resident Evil: Apocalypse, and I’m not sure that’s going to draw a bunch of people who have never seen it before, nor will it make anyone want to rewatch it. But maybe I’m wrong. Moving on.
Farscape: Seasons 1-4 (Netflix Instant)
Farscape has returned to Netflix, giving the Rockne S. O’Bannon series’ legions of fans a reason to get up in the morning, even if it’s only to turn the TV on. From 1999-2003, John Crichton and the multi-cultural crew aboard the Moya fled from dangerous enemies, traveled to distant worlds, and tried to open wormholes, all in the name of going against the Peacekeeper establishment. Strong stories and characters — some created by the Jim Henson Company — make this a unique standout in the sci-fi spacescape. Try not to be bothered by the brain-crippling cliffhanger the series ended on, as it was canceled before its time, and just hope that Netflix adds The Peacekeeper Wars concluding miniseries before Scorpius figures it all out and assumes victory.
