This one is my personal favorite episode. And I agree with everybody else. Ignore the "science" in this show, and just sit back and enjoy the ride.

Not everything has to be "deep" you know.

Re: Farscape First time watch thread....

That was a hilarious episode...I loved the part where Crichton pretended to still be Rygel, and it was a lot of fun to see the actors mimic the mannerisms of the others.

Re: Farscape First time watch thread....

I was thinking when the science thing was brought up (And I mean no spoilers since we're talking in a thread of a first time watcher) that this is the same episode featured various "mannerisms" (Aeryn being John was my favorite) used purely for comic relief. I don't think Science was the first thing on the writers minds.

If getting the science right is important to you, you're watching the wrong show.

I don't think people are really upset at my bringing up the science bit. Neither am I.... I've already watched Farscape once (at least). This is my repeat watch.

My bad. Editing my post. Please feel free to edit your quoting mine.

Apologies to everybody for posting spoilers. Sorry for taking this off-track.

Oh I know. Mine was a general statement about the nature of Farscape's storytelling focus. And the show is great about acknowledging and even mocking its own freehandedness with scientific explanations.

I actually found that interesting - namely, Rygel's reaction. Sikozu was freaking out because it was impossible...and Rygel pretty much says "Quit your whining, it happened. So shut up."

I know you're not really giving a lot away, but why don't we avoid the Season 4 talk until the OP is actually watching Season 4?

Re: Farscape First time watch thread....

Some of these avatars are spoilerific, too. Sakrysta's is awesome, but it kind of shows what happens between the two main characters.

Very Interesting. You should come back and read your post again, after you watch the concluding Mini-Series Peacekeeper Wars

Actually the OP should reread that comment during the second season too.

I don't really see that as a spoiler, but I also don't really pay attention to the avatars. All I knew of Farscape before this year was the last minute of the show on the water world and Scorpio. Neither one wrecked my enjoyment of the show.
