Mind the Baby

Farscape is a science fiction television show. Four regular seasons were produced, from 1999 to 2003. Each season consists of 22 episodes. Each episode is intended to air in a one hour television timeslot (with commercials), and runs for 44 to 50 minutes. The regular seasons were followed by Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars in 2004, a 2 part miniseries with an air time of 4 hours. Several of the early episodes of Season One were aired out of the intended order. As the official Farscape website[1] lists them in the production order as opposed to airing order, the list below reflects that.
