A lot of frelling good this is going to be

After some time and in great secret I have now watched all four seasons of Farscape and finished with the Peacekeeper Wars. I have quite a bit to say about it but am going to start with the observation that the show has changed my vocabulary; perhaps the best litmus test for successful speculative fiction. To expand on the subject is this handy list of fictional expletives once again made possible by the flawed miracle of Wikipedia.

This list of fictional expletives contains expletives invented by writers of fiction—often science fiction or fantasy—to add nuance to the fictional cultures in their work, and sometimes as a form of censorship (or getting around it).
