Added DiffLines:

* ValuesDissonance: Increased awareness of transgender issues makes it quite awkward to watch "The Flax" these days, with its making a gag out of the fact that Zenetans have reversed TertiarySexualCharacteristics and the character Staanz who D'Argo thinks he's been sharing male bonding with is actually a woman who's been falling in love with him, leading to a quasi-GayPanic moment that everyone has a good laugh over. And of course this also completely ignores the possibility of homosexuality, which is a whole different kettle of fish.

* HilariousInHindsight: In "Family Ties," D'Argo takes charge and issues orders--leading to an annoyed Aeryn grumbling, "You are not the captain here!" In Season 4's "Natural Election," D'Argo would be elected captain of the crew and Aeryn voted for him.

* SpiritualSuccessor: The show has often-commented similarities to the [=1970s/80s=] British SpaceOpera series ''Series/BlakesSeven'', which was similarly based around a group of bickering rebels and fugitives fighting against an interstellar dictatorship from a rare, ultra-powerful sentient spacecraft. The enmity between John and Crais in the first season is very similar to that between Blake and Travis in ''Blake's 7'', right down to the ''Farscape'' episode "That Old Black Magic" having major similarities to the ''Blake's 7'' episode "Duel". The similarities were acknowledged in the final season with the introduction of Grayza, a villain with extreme visual and personality similarities to Servalan, the BigBad of the earlier show.

** Even more irony is that Wayne Pygram, who played Scorpius, was picked up on by a crew member during the show's run because they wanted "to know the guy in the suit."

** Even more irony is that Wayne Pygram, who played Scorpius, admitted in an interview that there was picked up on by a sexual element to the costume and that he took out a crew member during the show's run because and they wanted "to know admitted to him that they "were only interested in the guy in the suit.costume."

*** Let's not forget, Pilot also gets one of his arms cut off by the crew. It's enough that he's in pain from the graph, but then having his crew members mutilate him for their own objectives (yes, his arms grow back, but it still doesn't make it easy).

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: For all that it's built up as a horribly dangerous area where even Peacekeepers and Scarrans fear to go, Tormented Space never once comes off as any worse than the places the crew usually goes.

It doesn't help that they get a hardware fix for what little effect it has literally the second episode they spend there.

* FandomRivalry: Frequently with fans of ''Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined''. Due to the timing of ''Farscape's'' cancellation and the announcement of ''Battlestar Galactica'', many fans of ''Farscape'' blame the latter series for the show's cancellation thanks in no small part to the more tactless comments by Sci-Fi channel about the announcement of ''Battlestar'' being greenlit because the channel needed a "sexy, dark and edgy space-based science fiction drama"...right as they cancelled their ''existing'' "sexy, dark and edgy space-based science fiction drama."
