** 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."

*** 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."

** The show being filmed in Australia meant that it wasn't too surprising that it eventually racked up appearances by actors from every ''Film/MadMax'' film. Then the tradition was continued by ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'' casting Melissa Jaffer (along with a return to the series by Hugh Keays-Byrne).

* FridgeBrilliance: Crichton, in one of his many flip-out moments in "Crackers Don't Matter," writes the name of the villain-of-the-week T'raltixx on a door. How does he know how to spell it, much less get it right? Then you realize: He doesn't! Nobody in the show technically speaks English except for Crichton, so he probably just made it up. Likewise when Crichton occasionally speaks in Spanish and the others have no problem understanding him (thanks to the Translator Microbes); an exception being "Crichton Kicks" where the microbes can't handle Klingon! This is explained by Sikozu not using translator microbes - her brain can't handle them, possibly [[spoiler: because she's a bioloid]]. She learns languages extremely quickly but must be presented with their structure, rules, and alphabet. Because Crichton taught her English but dropped in the Klingon on a whim (actually a true-blue ThrowItIn by Ben Browder, which is why Raelee Hill had that look on her face after he said it), Sikozu wasn't able to process what he said. And there are actually a lot of subtle references and minor events that have significant impact episodes after they're introduced.
* FridgeLogic: In Look at the Princess, when the empress demands to know who defaced Crichton's statue, why didn't they just ask the princess? It's already been established that she can see and hear, and they have a technology that lets them speak to her. This is leaving aside the question of why you would leave the royal heir helpless and unguarded, without even a security camera.

** From the same episode, [[spoiler: the "ultimate weapon" Matala was trying to steal (and which gave Crichton temporary precognition) was a piece of a black hole. One whole series later, and the wormhole weapon Crichton deploys takes the form of... a black hole.]]
