  • This episode was not so good.

    It was defiantly not anywhere near as good as the previous few episodes but it is still very good. Again Chiana causes problems when she buys some slave girl who is actually a giant spider. So before long the spider begins to infect people with some strange illness and the crew only have a few hours before they will die. I still thought this was a good episode but it felt like somewhat of a filler episode. Nonetheless i still enjoyed it and the story kept me guessing until the end. Now that e are getting towards the end of the show its getting sad because soon i know that there will not be any episodes left...
  • It looks great, it is great. Wonderful

    Been here before. Alien gets on Moya, messes with people’s brains and then gets blown away. Wouldn’t it be nice if just for once it was someone other than Crichton who plugged the ugly? I understand now why the SciFi Channel say this is so expensive to make. There is nothing in it that isn’t done beautifully. Just look at that spider - as convincing as anything done anywhere else on big or small screen. And it blew up rather nicely as well. But all of this just acts as a backdrop to the continuing superb performances by the cast. Required to turn their characters inside out, they do so in an utterly convincing way. They are not just playing another character, but their character having a character change. And finally John & Aeryn resolve the will they/won’t they plot again but retain the tension through the worry about Scorpius. The consummation of these type of plot lines normally signals the end for a TV series, but Farscape has done it once and got away with it, and looks like they are going to do it again.
