    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... :lol:

    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.

    "John Crichton was here!"

    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.

    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.:lol: 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.:guffaw:

    It's a rather more recent reference than that.

    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."

    Ok, I've officially learned some new volcabulary this week on the BBS. Before yesterday, I didn't know what Disco Stick was. Now I do. :lol:

    It's from the Lady Gaga song, Love Game, I was listening to it at the time. :lol:

    "Let's have some fun, cuz faith is sick, I want to ride your disco stick. Don't think too much just bust that stick, I want to ride your disco stick."

    Ah. Thanks. I've never heard of Lady Gaga til just recently, and at first I thought it was a man in drag like that Dame Edna guy. Until I saw her picture that is.

    Hmm, my S2 disc 1 has some slight damage on it.

    But it's just a few minutes of "Taking the Stone", so I don't really care.
