The Flax: Loved it. The burning of the green dolls was hilarious.

D'Argo's temptations were great stuff, both the maps and Kcrackic.

Kcrackic, I LOVED THIS GUY. My god he looks like so many useless petrol heads I've known right down to the hideous fake wool lined flannel jacket. I felt like I was watching a documentary on Aussie blokes of the 80's. Such a nice broad accent too.



I really thought Rygel had screwed them over, right up until the end.

And.. KISSING? In SEASON ONE?!! This bodes well

Trapped in a shuttle with oxygen running out these things happen..



But that's as far as it usually goes! Something for the subtexters..not actual ripping off of the clothes!

Imagine if that had happened in Shuttlepod One. It could have been epic.

Jeremiah Crichton: Well that was bloody boring. Great opening with Crichton irritated, left behind, fishing on the beach.. and then bleh.

Simple natives held down by mystery tech needing to be freed. Where have we seen that story before, let's just start with The Apple




Hella big crab.. needs garlic.

(Obscure aus references keeping coming to mind watching this show..)

It doesn't get much worse than Jeremiah Crichton, which is a good thing, considering that it's just a boring episode and not anything really worse than that.

I, E.T. is my least favorite episode of the entire show, but Jeremiah Crichton is a close second.

Every once in awhile I consider rewatching or correctly..watching this show--as I barely watched any eps after season 2--but then I think about how much I hate Ben Browder and the generally shoddy acting. There are also a couple of eps from season one that make Code of Honor look like a classic.

The more I think of it, I actually like more scifi shows from after 2006-2007 than after the STNG scifi explosion to 2006.

I despised him the minute words came out of his mouth, and from the first episode onward. That I got as far as I did is a tribute to my tenacity with scifi. I ranted about a couple of the episodes here and I still have a copy of the post I made way back when denouncing the series dated April 15th, 2000.

Eh, I wont say anything else since this is a rewatch thread, but the one thing I liked about the show is that ANY scifi on TV even if it does moderately well is good for other scifi. It's much better than when we hardly had any which created a model for execs not to greenlight any.

Some of my favorite series of the last 7 years are on right now, some are webseries.

It's like conceptual art: you don't necessarily have to react to it, you just have to acknowledge that it exists.

Re: teacake does Farscape: Spoiler Free first time viewing

Durka Returns: This was beautifully shot. I loved the running scenes through the ship, the camera angles really captured that they are running through tubes in a living creature, full of twists and turns. Very atmospheric.




Now Chiara, I assume a million people have said this before but she reminded me strongly of Blade Runner's Pris.




Fantastic costuming too!

Not sure why Chrichton is all torqued up about DID she or DIDN'T she kill her captor. Guy was imprisoning and torturing her and taking her back to have her mind wiped.. if she had to kill him to escape I can't see this as a character flaw. Wouldn't Crichton have done the same?

Durka himself.. his accent was the same as the Neimodians who I always thought were a hoot so I was kind of chuckling through a lot of his delivery. A very good episode, quite gripping. I think the way they are using Moya's pregnancy is well done.

The first season definitely has its high points. But, like TNG and DS9, the show got better as it found its voice.
The first season was my favorite, the character building and unique perspectives of the crew and the aliens at large made this a fantastic show.

He doesn't know. As you've probably realized, at this point, Crichton is basically a guy trying to stay decent in increasingly difficult situations. He's holding on his ethics because it's the only thing that's holding him together.

You're right, I forget he's an astronaut not a soldier. Stargate soldierized him in my mind

Re: teacake does Farscape: Spoiler Free first time viewing

A Human Reaction: Very nice. I figured out it was all sorta in Chrichton's head when he recognized the tech from training in the Simpson desert. I was initially wondering where the heck the Americans were since they wouldn't leave one of their astronauts in this (rather half assed) prison in another country.

Crichton's memory granting him a VB:



So.. Aeryn and John did sleep together, in their heads?

A very romantic scene, and I think the rainy weather and greyness added to it.






I'm not used to seeing bits of Aus in science fiction! Australian magazines (real ones):




I think a good alternative title for this episode would be "The Ladies Room".

Through the Looking Glass: I could barely choke this down.




I enjoyed the food scenes at the beginning and end though.

Re: teacake does Farscape: Spoiler Free first time viewing

Well, for what it's worth, this thread has inspired me to give Farscape another go. I tried with the first couple of episodes but never stuck with it. So, given some of the comments here, I've decided to jump in at 'DNA Mad Scientist'. Wish me luck!

edit: Wow. Just lop the damn thing off!
