I don't know about fascinating, but she was hot though.

The only thing I really liked about Sikozu was the acting. Like Chiana, she really moved in an alien way, especially the way she looked at people.

Very true. Even if you don't like the character, you gotta give the girl credit for the way she was played.

I thought people consider The Locket one of the best episodes of the series. It was difinately a great episode, and one of my favorites. I also liked Prefect Murder too (After rewatching it and realizing that it wasn't that bad) so go figure.

I love Farscape. It's my favorite Scifi show ever with some awesome characters and epic stories.

I do wonder, what is considered Farscape's best episode? I don't mean trilogy, like Liars Guns and Money or Into the Lions Den, but jsut plain episode. I say The Way we Weren't, which is classic character development and emotional moment as you can get on this series. It was Farscape's Visitor/The Inner Light.

It's definitely up there, though for me it's got to be one of the season finales, probably "Family Ties" from Season 1.

Re: Watching Farscape lately...

Sikozu supposed to be arrogant , annoying and unlikable. That was the way she was written. I accepted her the way she was. None of these characters supposed to be saints after all. If Farscape went beyond Season 4 maybe she would experience more character growth and development to someone sympethic like Crais became in Season 3. We will never know.

The Locket was pretty standart stand alone episode of Season 2. Quite decent in writing/acting mostly. Drama was effective and not forced. Unfortunetely reset button at the end ruins it and makes this episode all too much "stand alone" without any after effects...I mean this could be easily "Clues" episode of Star Trek TNG and if you rip off another episode of another series so blantly it means you are in trouble in creative department.

As for favorite episode there are so many of them. "A Human Reaction" "Crackers Don't.." , "The Way we weren't" , "Out of their minds" , "Season of Death" etc. There are several favorite episodes for me not one episode...

I wouldn't say it had no consequences. Old Man Crichton popped up again Season 3.

There is only one thing that really annoys me in this episode and it's the ending. The writers push the reset button and neither John or Aeryn remember what happened between them. Frustrating!

Well, it's obvious that they have a really strong feeling that something important happened between them. I suppose that counts for something.

Most of Farscape's high points were 2 or 3 parters. As far as stand alones go I'm partial to "The Way We Weren't" and "Crackers Don't Matter"

Re: Watching Farscape lately...

I just finished watching the A&E set for the first time a couple of months ago. What a great ride. I'd place Farscape in my top 5 sci-fi series for sure.

In regards to certain episodes people have mentioned already, I thought taking the stone was OK, The Locket was great, and I actually didn't mind A Perfect Murder. I had to go back and double-check afterwards "oh, and this is the one everyone hates?" and yes, it was. I liked the mind-bending use of partial reveals in the first third. It was not a GREAT episode though, no. It was merely OK.

I thought the biggest stumble in the series was the very end (last ten minutes) of season 3 and the beginning of season 4. There didn't really seem to be any reason for everyone to take off in separate directions. Or if there WAS some reason, I totally missed it. I've kind-of blocked the first three episodes of Season 4 out of my mind but I remember not liking them very much. As has already been mentioned though it does right itself about halfway through the season and the conclusion was very good.

One other thing I will mention- the video quality in S4 takes a hit due to the episodes being in widescreen but having the same number of episodes per disc. People with the Starburst sets are lucky in this respect. I'm sure their S4 looks better than mine.

Crackers Don't Matter, ...Different Destinations, and Revenging Angel are my picks for best individual episodes.

I only regard two other series in same level with Farscape. Babylon 5 and Battlestar Galactica. They have different thames , plots , messages of course. But about orginality in sci-fi those three series are perfection for me.
I agree, Farscape, B5 and nuBSG are the holy trinity of sci-fi tv to me. Firefly would be up there as well if it had lasted longer.

Ah Farscape, with all those lovely Australian ladies

There was something about the series that evoked the sense of adventure of so many of the silly space opera books I read as a kid. I tire of science fiction that has to have some sort of a space navy or United Nations of planets. I'm not really taken off planet by it all.

One guy, out of his depth, suddenly finding strange friends and coming out on top. I like it, especially when the characters are so likeable and the settings are so lush and bizarre. Everything was just conceived so very well, I just can't not like it

Re: Watching Farscape lately...

"The Locket" was an episode fans of the show insisted was one of the best when I watched a handful of episodes. That characterisation actually turned me off the series, really.

I can definitely see why people would like it, but I tended to compartmentalize those that did as being big fans of the John/Aeryn relationship and its soapy implications (I was more moderate on the whole thing, really, though it does have its strengths and Browder and Black had good chemistry).
