I didn't think it was spoilerish, but I can pull it if you prefer. Maybe, it's Billy Joel being objected to?

I just assumed there would be some scene I hadn't seen and since I seem to be a spoiler nazi watching it would be unseemly.

If you were a spoiler NAZI there would be far fewer people commenting in here.

I imagine there might be a scene or two, though no dialogue. It's done to Joels's 'Always a Woman', so to avoid future scenes, take a look after you've seen the series. It captures Chiana's character and her relationship with Crichton really well.

Agreed. I don't have a "favorite episode" of Farscape, but if I did, this one would be in the top five.

Dream a Little Dream: As soon as I saw this I knew I was in trouble.




Court episodes are right up there with boxing episodes, actually I think I like court episodes even less.

Nicely sci fi noir in places but it never really grabbed me.




Not sure why Zhaan is having the visions? Don't tell me if it is some big plot element!

That was originally the season two premiere. When the episode wasn't turning out, it was shelved, and later they shot the bookends with Crichton and Zhaan so it could be used mid season. Nice production design, but one of the lowlights of season two.

Re: teacake does Farscape: Spoiler Free first time viewing

That was actually my first episode of Farscape ever. I was so confused, and everything about it just seemed so weird. The weirdness, however, intrigued me enough to keep tuning in.

So yeah, not a great episode in the grand scheme of things, but it did have a neat atmosphere to it.

Re: teacake does Farscape: Spoiler Free first time viewing


So is Zhaan rededicating herself to the Delvian seek because she's actually afraid they're all going to die? Because it seems awfully inconvenient, indulgent and rude to the real people trying to get her attention and input. I know she steps out of it eventually but I was trying to figure out if this was something she was headed into before this episode, something that had now come upon her. But apparently no, she's just freaked out and has gone into hibernation chant mode.

Well, now you know!

Agreed. The Way We Weren't and Crackers Don't Matter are two of my favorite S2 eps; totally different tons but both brilliant.

I'm way behind, but I couldn't resist speaking up for "Jeremiah Crichton". I know the overall plot is a bit silly, but there are so many little moments that have such charm. I prefer it WAY more than "Rhapsody in Blue", for example.

Agreed. I didn't think I was going to like it, but it turned out rather well. Rhapsody was disappointing for me...

Re: teacake does Farscape: Spoiler Free first time viewing

Two questions..

My Little Crichtons is listed as episode 10 on Wikipedia and comes before the triple ep but in my umm.. set of episodes it is episode 13 and comes after the triple ep. Does it matter?

And I've been planning to watch the triple ep tonight but just realized I have Out of Their Minds before it as well as potentially My Little Crichtons. Do I need to watch Out of Their Minds first as well?
