We arrived in the middle episode of the three parter that almost marks the end of this grand series. Farscape has a name to uphold for these two- and three partners and they certainly make it true this time.
This episode gave us everything we can expect from the series. Once again, my hero Rygel plays his own heroic part in the way he does best: convincingly make people a bit uncomfortable. We see the return of Stark and no answers are given where he comes from or why he works for the Scarrans.He was never one of my favourite characters, just a bit shady and he seems to enjoy torturing Scorpius more than he is concerned with the safety of the rest of the crew, although they stay hidden for him for a long time. We learn that Scorpius has been a spy for the Scarran emperor for ...Read more
Aeryn is in Scarran custody and trying desperately to find hope in what feels like a hopeless situation. While Crichton seeks her by revisiting an unrealized reality where the key to Aeryn’s location may be found.
This is my third, and I think final, Farscape recap and it's been great fun. Now more than ever I wish I had been along from the very beginning (maybe contributing one or two more recaps along the way).
As always, if you enjoy reading this post, or any other post in the TV.com communities, please give it a heart and let us feel your loving embrace.
They should rename this episode to 'A Lesson in Frustration', you'll see why.
This week we open with Crichton and Aeryn sitting in front of Pilots console trying to enjoy a brief moment alone. The perfect time for Aeryn to give her Christmas present to Crichton... no, not that, get your minds out of the gutter! It's actually a remote control and when John asks if there's anything that comes with it she assures him “it's big ...Read more
If I’m honest, there are two good reasons to watch this episode. One is that it is a Farscape episode and we should watch them all and the other is that Crichton reveals to Aeryn why he was so mean to her.
The rest? Not that great. It had a huge Star Trek feeling for me. Crew saves alien, alien is dangerous for crew, crew saves crew. The alien was badly worked out and it never became exciting. Except for that confession, this episode did not bring anything to the realm. After the brilliance of the last three episodes, this was hardly back to normal for me. But still, when putting the screenshots in the text, I had so many beautiful shots I used more than usual. So visually, it must have been ok.
Navigating to the right time in the same place, the crew of Moya finds Earth has found them first and has been waiting for their arrival. Crichton must face a difficult foe - the politics of America's claim on the E.T. technology.
Five years ago, astronaut John Crichton attempted to use the Earth's atmosphere to propel his ship, Farscape 1, at great speeds across the solar system. He went much further though and was sucked down a wormhole to a distant part of the galaxy and into the middle of a battle. He was rescued by a group of escaping prisoners and taken aboard their ship, a living ship. As the years went by, Crichton has made enemies, powerful and dangerous enemies. On his journey to find a way back home, he freed other captives who became part of the crew on Moya.moreless
