After watching all of these within 7 weeks, I feel like I can watch them again. But Im gonna wait a few years.
Uh huh.
What will really happen is that you will watch it again within the next year..maybe even within six months.
Then, when you have watched it a second time, loving it even more then the first, you will think that you need to have someone else watch it too because of it pure awesomeness! You will convince them to watch it but in order for that to happen you will have to watch it with them in case they miss its pure awesomeness. This cycle will repeat ad nauseum.
So, all this has happened before and all this will happen again?

Yeah, I know, wrong show, the quote just felt right in this case.

Speaking of BSG, I already forgot the episode, but there was a BSG reference in Farscape. John was trying to call out the Cylon Imperious Leader and I thought it was funny. Was that "I Shrink Therefore I Am?"

I remember that, laughed out loud! Can't remember which ep it was, but that sounds right. I really liked that one.

Yeah that was a great episode. I loved when John picked up Chiana's and Areyns tube and breathed in it and asked. "Hows my breath." The reaction my Chiana and Areyn is priceless.

Oh man, thats the ep when John gives Scorpy the gun with no ammo, and causes Scorpy to question whether he chose the right side. They are too funny together! I love Scorpy!

I'm finishing Season 3 tonight and currently watching "I-Yench, You-Yench"

I thought the evolution of the relationship between John and Aeryn (especially in light of the 'Doubling') was brilliant. You couldn't have done that plot on hardly any other show.

Re: Complete Farscape on DVD Nov 17

I'm at the We're So Screwed trilogy now. Two things I want to say about Prayer:

1) This was Black's best performence in the show I think. She's had so many, but sometimes she needs to work off Browder and vice versa that it's been a while since she was given the opportunity to shine. That end scene where she denounces her god was just really really amazing.

2) When John made the comment about in some universe the Cubs win the world series, I just had to laugh. It's still not happened yet, 7 years later.

It's taking my friends and I way too long to work through this series, but I can't wait to get to that episode with them just for that line. They are all hardcore Cubs fans.

I'm just glad they picked the Cubs and not the Red Sox.

Re: Complete Farscape on DVD Nov 17

It is interesting to see how few of Crichton's pop culture references are dated (or maybe it's just because I'm dated and I get them). I think it helps that a lot of them were to stuff that was fairly old and/or notable at the time - the Three Stooges and Abbot and Costello weren't exactly timely things to riff on, and I think people could guess Silence of the Lambs was something that'd still be discussed years down the line.

Okay, that physical "docking web" in Peacekeeper Wars was strange. I'd always assumed the docking web was some sort of energy field.

And who would have thought that Harvey's comment about Shatner being the guy who does Priceline commercials would still be relevant nearly ten years on!

But, you're right, most of Crichton's pop culture references are to things that had already demonstrated longevity: The Three Stooges, Star Trek, Steven Spielberg movies, etc.

If anything Shatner is even more linked to priceline than before. He's the "progress bar" on the website. You click search and you see Shatner mugging it up! He must've stock in the company now or something.

Yeah, normally it is.
