As SCI-FI on hiatus until March, 2002, fellow ‘scapers are will have to make do with fan sites. One of the them, Farscape Weekly is running this article, Is Farscape clichèd? It lists and catagorizes some of the more brain-damaged plot devices inflicted on sci-fi fans. It’s a fun read, although I believe there are some additional examples of Farscape going to the clichè well. Still, Farscape shines when it uses traditional sci-fi elements in unexpected ways. I submit that Eat Me, Beware of Dog and Won’t Get Fooled Again all fall into this catagory. What do you think?
