Re: Complete Farscape on DVD Nov 17
Now that I've re-watched the "spacewalk" scene, I'd have to say it's unlikely he would have been able to manage that.
For one thing, I rather doubt John's eyes would have been working all that well in vacuum. The liquid surface layer would evaporate fast, significantly reducing visual acuity.
Plus, the chances of maintaining consciousness for the 20 or so seconds he was out there are low at that altitude.
I REALLY loved that sequence, so I don't care that it may stretch believability a tad. Same goes for the rest of the show. It's Sci Fi, so I don't have the same expectations of realism that I do with modern day TV.
