Sadly, I've never seen Farscape. My side of town didn't get Sci-Fi when it debuted, and now that I do get it, I just haven't had time to get into. So little time, so many obsessions.
Cleo's scream was a bit annoying, but it was *supposed* to be annoying. By the second season, she'd gotten more confident -plus she had some incredible jokes as a result of her scream - like paralyzing the crowd at a mutant bar by screaming into a microphone, and by offering to scream to kill the parasite in "Brain Drain." (Hel and Sarge quickly said "NO!" )
I am very proud that my defense of her scream was chosen as "Fan Quote of the Week" at the Oficial Website - I said something about how she represented Everyman/woman, and that I'm sure I'd scream like a girl if I woke up 500 years into the future, and found myself plunging down a bottomless airshaft!
