- Crichton's goodbye scene was very sad, of course, but just as poignant, I thought, was Stark saying "I have no prayer for this" as the Scarren dreadnought was destroyed by the displacement weapon.
The first time I saw this episode, the tension in that scene was absolutely insane. Watching the Dreadnought get swallowed up by the wormhole was super intense, and the silence that followed was unbelievably eerie. To have that silence broken by Aeryn's crying (of all things!), "Crichton, are you--?"...I had chills. Absolutely fantastic.

Obviously, Crichton's death was super depressing, and yes, it was really sneaky of the writers to basically give John everything he wanted -- the power of wormholes, the ability to go home, his dream girl agreeing to go home with him, and Harvey removed from his mind -- only to kill him off, yet still leaving a Crichton intact on the other ship.

Things are about to get weird.

- Over these last two episodes, the show is really screwing with Aeryn. Both episodes have closed with her crying over Crichton's body.
You have no idea. Wait until you see the next episode.

Re: Exploring the Uncharted Territories: A Farscape Viewing Experience

I still can't watch that death scene with Aeryn/Critchon without getting choked up. The way those bells ring...Aeryn's expression, the way she tentatively closes his eyes after he dies...it's just tragically perfect. An amazing two-parter that really sets up the rest of the arc throughout the Peace Keeper wars.

As for Scratch N' Sniff.......I wasn't as a big a fan of that one. Parts of it were pretty clever and amusing but parts of it just didn't work for me.

Heading down the home stretch now with some uneven episodes until you get to the amazing two-parter at the end.

Aside from "The Way We Weren't," which I think it just a fantastic episode, you're in a stretch of very mediocre episodes. None of them are bad, but they're not the type of episodes you'd ever hurry to re-watch. Lots of standalones, very few lasting consequences.

That said, the next episode "Out of their Minds" is pretty fun.
The Way We Weren't is the only good episode on the Complete Series disc as I'm finding out. I'll probably not be watching Home On the Remains, Picture if You Will, or Dream a Little Dream anytime soon... if ever.

Re: Exploring the Uncharted Territories: A Farscape Viewing Experience

Indeed. I actually just skipped over that entire disc tonight. I love "The Way We Weren't," but I've watched it way too many times, and I didn't see the point in watching any of the other episodes on that disc.

I just listened to the Ben/Claudia commentary for TWWW last night. I could listen to them banter for hours on end. They're really good a doing commentaries... as opposed to Brian Henson.

Re: Exploring the Uncharted Territories: A Farscape Viewing Experience

Yeah, Infinite Possibilities is super-tragic. Just re-watched it myself last night, actually... You really have to feel terrible for poor Aeryn by the end of this... All this growth that John has led her toward from her beginnings and now, just as she's made some major emotional breakthroughs, he's now left her...

Yeah, there's another one, but I don't think I'm spoiling anything by saying that, to her, she's going to just see the living John as 'the copy'...

'Strained' doesn't even begin to cover their relationship once they meet back up...

Of course, this super-intense two parter is sandwiched by two of the most insane episodes of the series. You've seen 'Scratch n Sniff', trust me, 'Revenging Angel' will be just as weird... You'll either love it or hate it...

Re: Exploring the Uncharted Territories: A Farscape Viewing Experience

Does anyone have a link to that fabulous John/Aeryn romantic music video that made the rounds a few years ago? I can't remember the music so I'm having a hard time finding it. Neroon, I think you know the video I'm talking about. Someone help me remember so I can find it?

Now I'm watching "The Locket," which I haven't seen in about 4 years, and I'm getting all weepy. Damn this show.

Don't worry about it.......I'm not even watching the show right now and just watching the video I posted in the previous post got to me. For me, there are only a few relationships that work as well as Critchon and Aeryn.....in fact, only Sheridan/Delenn comes to mind..............

I think Crichton and Aeryn is a lot stronger mainly because they didn't lose the strength in character they individually had. One of my problems with Sheridan/Delenn was it seemed like things got too mushy and it affected them individually too much. I think there was even a scene where Delenn wanted to get away from Sheridan for a while because it effected everything else in both their lives.

With Chrichton and Aeryn, that coolness factor remained all throughout the relationship and the character development was a lot stronger. I consider it the standard on how to do a good relationship, and no other series has gotten close to it ever.

I just started season 3. I like the new beginning and the show I can feel is really shifting into a new place.

YES YES YES! Thank you! I thought it was "My Immortal", but I kept hitting a different Farscape video with the same music.
