I saw someone on the internet this morning saying that Farscape's aliens were basically:
"...Proud Warrior Race Guy, Greedy Nobleman, Space Buddhist, Spock, Action Girl..."
...and concluding that the characters weren't all that original.


No. Wrong.

This show has D'Argo - the Proud Warrior Race Guy... who wants to stop fighting, settle down, and have a farm.

And Zhaan - the Space Buddhist... who is completely psychotic on her bad days.

And Aeryn, who was raised to be a soldier and nothing else, and Pilot, who is mostly calm and logical but also stubborn and snarky, and Jool, who is intelligent and resourceful and also a spoiled brat, Crichton, who is the American Hero and is not the action guy, he's the scientist! - and he's completely out of his depth...

And everyone else, too.


There are a lot of complaints you could make about Farscape. Lack of original characters is not one of them.
