Yeah, they did. I remember watching it. Normally I find recap shows like that annoying, but I remember enjoying it because of Browder and Black.

Re: Exploring the Uncharted Territories: A Farscape Viewing Experience

I only barely remember seeing it. I didn't start watching Farscape until the very end of Season 2, so I'm sure I found it helpful. That was just a long time ago.

I think they played it the same night as the Season 3 Premiere.

Yup. Ah, the good old days, when Farscape was king on Sci-Fi...

Indeed. Especially considering Stark is my favorite character. Never enough Stark! Alas...

The next episode, "I Yensch, You Yensch" is kind of silly. It's one of those "what is this episode doing here?" kind of episodes, like "Bone to Be Wild" was in Season 1. It has some things going on that are related to the arc, but I feel like it really interrupts the flow of the season.

That said, the final 3 episodes of this season are absolutely fantastic.
I go back and forth with "I Yensch, You Yensch" but I think what sells it is the fantastic pairing of Rygel and Scorpius.

The recap in the beginning of What Was Lost - Part 1 is annoying because there are new scenes in it. I assume that those were cut from the season premiere because of lack of time.

Re: Exploring the Uncharted Territories: A Farscape Viewing Experience

Personally, I like "I Yensch, You Yensch" Yeah, the non-main character stuff (avoiding specifics to prevent spoilerage) is... not compelling, but there's definitely some interesting stuff there (especially with the aforementioned, Scorpius/Rygel stuff, it really shows how far along Rygel's come that he manages to pull off what he does in this episode and make it believable. D'argo's scenes, though minimal, I find to be rather hilarious, overall...

The Moya scenes are... harrowing, as they do a good job of encapsulating the central moral issues of the season (Talyn's insanity, the necessity of doing something about the wormhole situation, Aeryn and Chrichton2's relationship status, Chiana's 'gift', etc.), with both the bar and the Moya scenes dovetailing into a situation that does nicely set up the upcoming 2-3 parter season closer...

But yeah, the monkey aliens were just irritating, though I admit, I have long ago co-opted one of their catchphrases in my everyday vocabulary... lol

Re: Exploring the Uncharted Territories: A Farscape Viewing Experience

Just started a rewatch from Netflix.

Went thru Premiere, Exodus from Genesis and Throne for a Loss - is this the Telecast order? I seem to remember thinking that I, ET (which I remember that I kinda liked when I first saw it) as the second ep.

Premiere (why the 'e' at the end) is a pretty decent setup. I wish the graphics for the docking web - there's a subsequent ep (Throne for a loss) where Crichton asks Pilot to capture somebody using the tractor beam. Pilot: *looks strangely at Crichton* What's a tractor beam? C: The way you got me onto the ship P: I did that using the docking web. C: Use the docking web to capture that ship P: They are too far for that). I just thought that tractor beam reference was hilarious - when Crichton is captured were better. Oh well.

Aeryn looked hot and young with her hair not being as straight as they were in the later seasons.

How tall is Virginia Hey? She seemed as tall as Crichton.

Exodus from Genesis gave me a zombie vibe.

I truly liked Throne for a Loss. Including the Consortium of Traal (sp?) representative (questionable puppetry tho') and that the final resolution was just talk it over. Was vaguely disturbed that Zhaan's "protege" chooses to go back on the juice. The characters won outrageously and then one of them (Zhaan) lost a personal battle. I remember always liking that about Farscape.

I, ET begins with Crichton using the word "hezmana". I remembered that I, ET seemed to show the first "bonding" of the Moya Escaped Prisoners. But I think Crichton using the word "hezmana" at the beginning seemed kinda odd. (Even tho' he's responding to D'Argo who uses it first). But haven't finished watching that ep.

Anybody else just beginning too?

Re: Exploring the Uncharted Territories: A Farscape Viewing Experience

"I, ET" should have been the second ep. Netflix Instant has them listed in a slightly different order. I'm not sure how it will affect things down the road.

It's actually weird - after Throne for a loss, they put me on onto PK Tech Girl (which I have NEVER watched) and I remembered that it's supposed to happen close to the middle of the season. Then looked into it and found I, ET which I've begun but had to end that 10 mins in.

I think for some reason their discs have the episodes all "mixed"up.

Is there a way to watch it with commentaries or subtitles via their streaming feed, that I'm missing?

Re: Exploring the Uncharted Territories: A Farscape Viewing Experience

Netflix stream has the episodes in the order they aired on TV.

The DVD has them in the production order.

I just watched season's 3 Relativity and that has to be the stupidest episode I have seen yet. I can't believe how stupid it is. We can't trust this guy, but we trust him to shoot... yeah like I believ that person is dead.

Ridiculous would have been a better title.

Sci-fi/Syfy/Skiffy had I, E.T. moved to later in the season because they thought it was a weak episode.

Just so I'm clear..........the entire episode is ridiculous and stupid because in a very emotional and confusing moment, John and Aeryn accept Crais's offer to kill someone who's out to capture them all and hand them all over the the Peacekeepers??

Granted, I never thought that Crais would actually kill her because of how they filmed the episode and because it's Farscape. However, from the story's point of view, Crais had plenty of motive to kill Xhalax, not the least of which was self preservation and his affection for Aeryn.
