Farscape's Season 1, Episode 9 asks this of its characters, to unsettling results. This is the first episode that really hammers home the point that, while these characters may be protagonists, they are not all heroes.
What Farscape deserves tremendous credit for is being willing to take a giant leap after ten years of other shows-The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine very much included-taking small steps in this direction.
Farscape somehow took hold of viewers in a very particular way, thanks to clever writing, engaging and frequently complex characters, and a constant thread of the bizarre and off-kilter to keep you riveted.
