This thread put me in the mood to watch farscape tonight so I saw The Flask, Jeremiah Chrichton, and Durka Returns. Man it didn't take Black long to get hot, especially in The Flask.
Oh, dear God. Just wait until that episode where the ship starts emitting that red mist that makes Aeryn super horny. I swear her character is the biggest nymphomaniac in science fiction TV history!

That moment really says a lot about the show to me. Even one of the show's most stable characters, Zhaan, goes right for the arm and is obsessed about the data for the rest of the episode. When the chips are down, this is basically a motley group of ex-cons who are united mostly by having a common nemesis, a broadly similar goal, and the conveinence of hanging out on a spaceborne leviathan as opposed to trying to eek it out on one of the worlds they encounter in Uncharted Territories.

That is, it can be a pretty fragile social compact when you come down to it, and coming down to it can include severing the arm of the sweetest and most selfless character on the entire show.
Indeed, though it fun to not the ex-military gal and the quasi-military guy are horrified by the actions. Anyways, it was surprising but "Fits"


Trust me, that is the right attitude to have. If the devil is in the details, then Farscape is lost in its oddball kinkery.
I am going to be keeping a little tally of all the kink I find, if anything, for giggles. Can't wait till the Gimp arrives


I've grown to love Crichton terribly, and it's hard not to, really.
Indeed, and that type of character is hard to pull off being likable and at times, a lovable idiot, but also it fun to hear someone with a real (Light) North Carolina accent. (I grew up one town over from Charlotte, NC where Ben Browder grew up.)

If you like kink, just wait for the "man" in black.

Re: Farscape First time watch thread....

Just dropping in to congratulate you on a wise choice. What can I say, but read the sig (no, not the Tolkien part).

Perhaps I have some more substantial contributions when I actually have some time to read this thread.

Re: Farscape First time watch thread....

Speaking of Pilot losing his arm - there is a much more horrifying scene in a later season involving something similar. *shudder* The episode is called "Eat Me"...if any of you have watched that episode, I'm sure you know the scene I'm referring to...only on Farscape would something like that happen.

Re: Farscape First time watch thread....

I'm continuing my Farscape high (Thank you this thread) and I'm not going to spoil anything, but many folks think that the first season was ok but things didn't get into high gear until Nerve/Hidden Memory, but I would say it happened 3 episodes before that. Watched Durka Returns last night (to bring in a new character) and then tonight watched Human Reaction (Added an important winkle into the main story arc) and Through the Looking Glass (Awesome scifi story and brought us to the final chapter of one of the storylines this season).

Looking forward to seeing how you like these episodes, Distorted.

Re: Farscape First time watch thread....

I am in the middle of season 2 but stopped for the past few weeks.

I think the middle of season 1 goes thru a little lull. Of all the eps (and yes, Maldis gets a lot of non-love. It's awful!!). I personally hated Rhapsody in Blue - it's just silly stuff being made-up to sound important re the Delvians. Nothing made sense in it. Oh well...

Farscape doesn't concern itself with such things.

Re: Farscape First time watch thread....

Gawd. Complaining about the science of Farscape reminds me of a friend of mine. We saw Green Lantern and the one complaint he had about the movie was the portrayal of the JF35 aircraft. I mean, how does any of the technical stuff even matter when you're going to see something fun and entertaining?

Frankly some of the science of wormholes and such makes more sense than most TV shows.
