* HellIsThatNoise: D'Argo's howls from the end of "Bad Timing" will haunt your nightmares forever, and are just made worse by the context.

** The Blue Moya in "Through the Looking Glass". This episode one of the creative ones, even though its so hard to watch. The cinematography conveys the pain of some of the alternate Moya's by being incredibly uncomfortable. On top of that, the "Blue" Moya is an ear-rape machine.

* CultClassic: If ''Xena'', ''Sliders'', ''[=SeaQuest=]'', and [=B5=] are largely forgotten, then there was zero chance that a show airing on Sci Fi would leave a lasting impression. It didn't help that the show itself [[CerebusRollercoaster veered between the two extremes]] pretty often.

* CultClassic: ''Farscape'' isn't underrated (it won awards when it originally aired), it's just that it's mostly forgotten. If ''Xena'', ''Sliders'', ''[=SeaQuest=]'', and [=B5=] are largely forgotten, no longer relevant in pop culture, then there was zero chance that a show airing on Sci Fi would leave a lasting impression. stick. It didn't help that the show itself [[CerebusRollercoaster veered between the two extremes]] pretty often.

** Although YMMV heavily on the former point, since today Season 3 is often considered the best season of the entire series.

Added DiffLines:

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: "Prayer". Wall-to-wall torture and death with no respite. The scene with Scorpius and Crichton spinning in the cockpit doesn't further the plot in any way; it's there so the show can throw in a joke at the very beginning. Still, the episode is worth watching in a ''Did they actually just do that'' sort of way.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: YTV, a Nickelodeon-flavored Canadian channel was the first to pick up the show in the Great White North, probably misled by the fact that the show was made by Henson Studios. This did not end well, since they only bought the first season and edited the crap out of it

** A newly-appointed head of the Sci-Fi Channel was a big proponent of ''Farscape'''s 'edginess'. This was partly due to the presence of Jim Henson's moniker, not to mention the family-friendly puppets; both of which were unnerving to a company that was re-styling itself as an adult network.

** Stark. ''Damn''. You just want to wrap him in a straitjacket and give him a hug. And although his status as a BadAss nearly disqualifies him, Rygel approaches Woobie territory on several occasions throughout the series.

* RetroactiveRecognition:
** Well, at least when [[Series/StargateSG1 Cameron Mitchell and Vala Mal Doran went through the gate,]] it wasn't their first experience with wormholes and Ancients...
** Paul Goddard, who played Stark, previously appeared in a little film called TheMatrix as [[http://www.wearysloth.com/Gallery/ActorsG/40589-24459.gif Agent Brown]], one of the three original Agents (Brown, Jones and Smith).
** Creator/MartonCsokas who played Br'Nee in "Bone to be Wild" would go on to be Galadriel's husband Celeborn in ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings''.
** Christine Stephen-Daly (Lieutenant Teeg) would later go on to play Lara Stone in ''{{Casualty}}''.
** Stephanie Jacobsen has a tiny role in the episode "Incubator" as one of Scorpius's "Peacemaker Barbies", years before her more significant SF roles in ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'' ("Razor") as Kendra Shaw and ''Series/TerminatorTheSarahConnorChronicles'' as Jesse Flores.
** Melissa Jaffer (Noranti) subsequently appeared as the Keeper of the Seeds in ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'', on the grounds that [[AwesomeDearBoy at eighty, when you get an offer that's "wise woman with motorbike and shotgun" rather than "old woman dying in hospital" you TAKE that offer]].
** Aeryn (Claudia Black) later played Morrigan in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins''. HilariousInHindsight when you realize ''Franchise/DragonAge'' is by Creator/BioWare, who also did a series with attractive blue alien women like Zhaan: ''Franchise/MassEffect''. Eventually she played one of them as well, Matriarch Aethyta.



* TheScrappy: Exactly who qualifies as ''the'' scrappy may vary a great deal from viewer to viewer, but a lot of people hated Jool -- including the other characters... [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap at first, anyway]]. This was actually deliberate on the part of the writers, but Tammy [=MacIntosh=] stated in an interview that the hate Jool - and, in some cases, Tammy herself - received reduced her to tears.
** Jool's actually a decent character. The problem with her is that she Would. Not. Stop. ''[[MostAnnoyingSound Screaming]]!''.

** Even die-hard Scapers have trouble coming up with good stuff to say about Stark. He doesn't get a chance to be statesmanlike like Rygel, or handy like Zhann (see his botched surgery in "Relativity"), or shrewd like Noranti. And he whinges more than Jool! Paul was also popular with the crew, which means plenty of screen time. However plenty of fans do enjoy him simply for his insanity, and while his moments are rare, when he ''does'' come through big it tends to be ''spectacular''.
