Ugh, I was hoping that wasn't the case and that the actress was just being an idiot for this one episode. Even if the character itself becomes more interesting, I'll still be annoyed by her twitchy movement. I'm losing more and more hope that Farscape will be able to retain its quality with this character. She moves like Catwoman with brain damage, and her type of character is one of the most overused in all media. Now I know why people said there were worse episodes coming than Jeremiah Crichton I can only hope she doesn't screw up the show too badly.
Yeah, I would take a deep breath and remember, unlike movies, TV characters get the time and space to develop. Chiana is a GREAT character.
