- I am reminded of a comment that I made in relation to a previous episode about the emotionality that the Henson puppeteers were able to display on the puppets. Pilot's anger and sadness in this episode completely blew me away with how realistic it looked on the puppet. What they were able to achieve is quite stunning. Naturally, the voice actor did a magnificent job as well.
I completely agree. I will never accept any person's excuse to not watch Farscape
(or any other sophisticated use of muppets in film or television) simply because "they have muppets!" Because of the incredible puppetry, Pilot is one of my favorite characters because we see how alien he is. There are two separate moments in The Peacekeeper Wars
that show how emotional Pilot and Rygel can be in mere presence alone.
Lastly, I have to point out that Crais actor Lani Tupu also voices Pilot.
