One thing you should notice is the number of Australian actors in the show in recurring roles. Love the future seasons.

A Bug's Life: What a bizarre accent Browder used in this one.. a posh aussie pommie hybrid. Spent most of this ep trying to work it out.

The space virus should have implanted itself in Moya and killed everyone on board.

So.. Aeryn and John did sleep together, in their heads?
Not just in their heads - in their pants too. What they experienced was fabricated by the Ancients, yes, but it was still a physical reality, it wasn't a purely mental experience. D'Argo and Rygel were figments of the construction, but John and Aeryn were real. So yes, John and Aeryn slept together fo realzez.

That's his "Peacekeeper" accent. He'll have to break that out a couple more times before he's done.

Glad to see a first time viewer on here enjoying the show. Farscape is one of my all time favorites.

And it begins... watching this episode a second time through is fun, with the knowledge that everything that happens in the series is set into motion by the events of this episode.

You should give it another try. FARSCAPE just gets better and better.
And it stays better, too, unlike a certain other popular sci-fi TV show that's loved to death by mundanes more than Farscape is.

"A Human Reaction" is probably my favorite Season 1 episode, even with what's coming yet for you teacake. It's partly because Crichton and Aeryn are probably my favorite 'ship in genre fiction, and are the central reason I watched the show.

Every once in awhile I consider rewatching or correctly..watching this show--as I barely watched any eps after season 2--but then I think about how much I hate Ben Browder and the generally shoddy acting. There are also a couple of eps from season one that make Code of Honor look like a classic.

The more I think of it, I actually like more scifi shows from after 2006-2007 than after the STNG scifi explosion to 2006.

You're not kidding, are you?

Re: teacake does Farscape: Spoiler Free first time viewing

Remember people, I'm wanting to be Spoiler Free...

Nerve: Bloody hell, that escalated quickly

I was sitting there making up snide commentary about Crichton's accent when suddenly it's all torturing and burning people and pathetic but sad blondes and screaming and secret messages left by the ancients buried in Chrichton's head.



Peacekeeper life seems pretty fucking horrible. When Javio the higher up Peacekeeper tries to woo Chiara away from what he thinks is her covert ops master he says, "this is much more civilized".. about this complete shithole of an outpost. Now I am sure there are Peacekeepers living the high life somewhere but it seems that for most of them eating regularly and having a bar to hang out in at night is pretty damn great. And then there's relationships.. Aeryn was feeling the pang when the peacekeeper in the previous episode hit on her and the blonde is seemingly head turned over Chrichton just because he has been nice to her in the past. Not much of a life.

This is interesting hair, I love that dip in the middle:

Re: teacake does Farscape: Spoiler Free first time viewing

The Hidden Memory: This was just chock full of interesting stuff. The sad end of the sad blonde Peacekeeper. The VERY interesting Stark and his slave race. Fantastic acting from Browder who actually looks like he's really suffering in this and Nerve as a result of the chair.. compare this to all the other evil mind probing chairs where everyone screams but is okay next scene.

Dramatic birth complications! Moya's baby suffers weapons dystocia!

And.. OMG.. is this a reference to that scene in Titanic?!



I had to pause the episode I was laughing so hard!

Can't wait for the next one!!

Just to be nitpicky, her name is Chiana, not Chiara.

OH! I am sorry about that, I don't know how that got stuck in my head!

Guess I'll have to stop crafting my chiaroscuro comments about her hair. Damn.

(And thanks for the correction )

Bone to be Wild: Well there we go, Zhaan is a plant abd Scorpius is another species. Very interesting revelations couched in a standard "beam down, things are not as they seem" episode.

CREEPINESS!!!





Yay for this guy, he looks like he stepped straight out of Zangamarsh!





Seriously impressive costuming on this show.

I think I know why everyone complains about Trek's forehead aliens, once you've seen what can be done they look like token alien lumps. What was the budget like for Farscape?








Great shots with baby ship.. very atmospheric.



And WHERE is Stark?? Did they drop him off somewhere and never mention it? I need more Stark.
