Broadwaves: Farscape

Play

Farscape is an Australian-American science fiction show from 1999-2003. It tells the story of John Crichton, an astronaut from present day Earth, who travels through a wormhole and ends up in a distant part of the galaxy, where he joins the crew of Moya, a living ship. The crew are renegades escaping from a corrupt militaristic organization called the Peacekeepers. Together, they have many adventures as John keeps on trying to get home, as a grander story arc evolves.

In this special episode of Broadwaves, we look back over all seasons of Farscape, and discuss what our crew thought of this show. This are no major spoilers, so it’s safe for you to listen to this podcast even if you haven’t seen Farscape yet.

This episode shownotes: http://broadwaves.org/rss/episodes/bw20161012-sense8-s1p1.html

Our subject for this episode is Sense8

Sense8 is a Netflix original show, about eight people who start to discover they have a connection with each other. They learn that they can see through each other’s eyes, and borrow each other’s skills. They have become, in Sense8 mythology, a “cluster”.

There are plenty of people out to get them. Individually, they each have their own stories, so that’s eight adventures for a start. But together, they form part of a bigger story, a story about what it means to be human.

In this episode of Broadwaves, we introduce you to Sense8, and we do it without giving away any major spoilers – because if you haven’t seen it yet, we want you to watch it.

Comments are welcome.
