  • Probably the best ever show about how earth would deal with a real alien landing. This episode has everything right in it. it merits a perfect 10. Aeryn on a talk show? What's not to like?

    There are barely words to express how good Farscape is when it is good. I thought they had done the definitive first contact stories with Kansas and Terra Firma, but this was the business several times over and in spades. The episode not only moved the plot on and developed the characters, but did what good sci-fi should - it held up a mirror to ourselves. Ignoring the practical issues involved in picking up the transmission through the worm-hole, the off-worldly review of a very on-worldly documentary was perfect. Aliens come to Earth, and what do we do? We get them on chat shows. And when we’re bored with that, we make a TV documentary about them. Not only that, but it’s revealed that the FBI has a secret file on them. Now there is a serious crossover we need to see - Mulder and Scully investigate the Moya alien cover up! What really made your flesh creep in this one was that you knew this is how it would be if first contact really happened. A paranoid press that just wouldn’t understand that the rest of the universe simply wouldn’t care about us. We want to be threatened, otherwise we aren’t important. Excellent
