Both Crichton and Aeryn are lucky they are terrible shots.

HAHAHA I was thinking they must be so brain addled that they couldn't shoot straight.

I think you are over thinking why Caprica and SG: Universe failed. It wasn't because they were different, it's because they were boring!

I've still only seen 3 episodes of Caprica because I fall asleep whenever I attempt to watch it.

That's what I meant by "departure in pace".

Still I'm doing an SG;U rewatch after Farscape.

SG:U and Caprica are both decent shows which improved over time, better seen in quick bursts rather than slow weekly episode by episode format that TV has.

Agreed, at least in regards to SGU. I tried to watch it when it first aired and could only make it through the fifth episode or so. Gave the show another chance a couple months ago and blew right through the whole run in like three weeks.

The Way We Weren't: That was absolutely brutal. Aeryn must be completely screwed up, how could you ever get over doing such a thing.

Zhaan after all her pious commentary turns into a total bitch.

Rygel needs to be airlocked. And Pilot, how wonderful to give Pilot his own personal story.

Beautifully shot scenes.








And so it seems they are increasingly bonded together by their own failings.

Picture If You Will: Maldis comes back and there's a magic portrait that captures everyone and shatters and there are carnival mirrors going woowoowoo and optical trickeries and then everybody escapes and Maldis disintegrates into shards.

Still. Some pretty moments.




And has there been a wardrobe malfunction or will we be bearing midriffs from now on?



As I said, pretty moments

You will see Chiana's midriff a lot. Aeryn's midriff comes and goes.

The final scene of The Way We Weren't is my second-favorite shot of the whole series.

"The Way We Weren't" is to FARSCAPE as "Duet" is to DS9. It was the episode that showed just how powerful the show could be . . ..

Re: teacake does Farscape: Spoiler Free first time viewing

Home on the Remains: I should not have been eating while watching this. This guy was completely awful to look at.




Even more awful was watching Chiana run her fingers erotically up and down his head slit..




I had assumed this was a horrible injury not an erogenous zone! His brother had a head slit too though so it must be their species and not just bad luck for both of them.

He had the oddest accent, a mix of Australian, US South and a bit of Afrikaans. Quite effective.

I loved the take on what happens when a plant has a complete breakdown and reverts to a more primitive state.

The whole story with how they release spores which slow them and allow predators to catch them and then the spores kill the predators and then they EAT them.. !!

Fabulous alien-ness! Quite original.




Very well done episode.

And.. are these LEATHER pants? I had to stare at them for a quite a while to try and decide
