A few days later and I still don't know what this means. Care to clarify?
IIRC, the evolved Crichton was lacking the proper, uh, equipment.

Bingo. Good for a one-liner or two, but I have no idea why advanced human evolution would go that way.

We can't say penis? Cock? Dick? Disco Stick?

The Y chromosome is actually slowly evolving away and within a million years will be completely gone scientists think... so... yeah...

Which makes one wonder how we will reproduce in the future at all. What good is a hotdog bun if you can't fill it with any meat?!

I had forgotten how good the end of season 1 was.

It is indeed awesome. I get choked up at the end when Aeryn is trying to rescue them and Moya has to starburst away. The music is what gets me.

I agree. The track they used was apparently a hit with others too, as you'll see when it gets recycled in other episodes like "Taking the Stone".

I know. It's probably the reason I don't actually dislike that episode like most people.

I enjoyed it too. I think it was just too low-key for some, and the orange people acting like stoners probably didn't help.

Re: Complete Farscape on DVD Nov 17

Quick question for RoJoHen or anyone else who has watched a season 4 episode: Are the season 4 eps in widescreen like they should be? Amazon says that they're fullscreen, and I don't want to buy the set it that's true. Thanks.

I can't speak for this new box set, but the original ADV release has Season 4 in widescreen.

"Disco stick"??

Having lived through the disco era, you'd think I'd have heard that one before. Okay, I was in grade school, but....actually BECAUSE I was in grade school back then, you'd think I'd have heard that one before.

It's a rather more recent reference than that.

Re: Complete Farscape on DVD Nov 17

I have to admit though, I think Farscape did a pretty good job of giving us some good replacement cussin' words, but Nivoks? or Mivonks? for the ahem... lower regions is the best they could come up with? I think it would have been frelling awesome if ol' Scorpy told Crichton or Craiss or someone "Bring them to me... or I will take your disco stick away."
