This is another one of those filler episodes, entertaining enough but nothing special. Must be something about those third episodes of a production season (see I, Roommate)
The crew of Moya find a Paddac Beacon which could broadcast their exact location to the PeaceKeepers Their only way of hiding the signal is to land Moya in the swamp of a nearby planet while they disable the beacon
Giant bugs that are able to replicate other life forms infest Moya so that they can breed. The ships temperature is increased, but to the detriment of Aeryn – Crichton attempts to save her
D’Argo convinces everyone to help save some scientists in trouble before their spaceship explodes. They all agree to help transport them to a place where the scientists will be picked up by colleagues
I loved this first part of the miniseries however and I personally rate it a piping hot 31,999 out of 10, however I added an extra point for Sikozu making it an even 32,000
This was an excellent episode, even if it was a “dream” episode, with the military base and Wilson being truly nightmarish. I also liked the fact that for the first time, John makes a decision about where his priorities to the Moyans lie…
The acting was splendid as usual, and Acquara really looked like a tropical paradise, but the back-story of the villager’s plight didn’t make much sense, and Neera was just too ‘cardboard villain’ for words
This was one of those amazing episodes that keep you on the edge of your seat (or in my case with your hand in the tissue box). Now, I really do know why I love this show so much!
This was a really jam-packed episode, and very suspenseful – a great start to the new season
Whew, more Crichton torture, and one very creepy evil guy. Scorpius isn’t flamboyantly evil, he is evil because that is his nature. It is hard to convey how evil he really comes across in the episode; he isn’t over the top about it, like Maldis, say (“That Old Black Magic” and “Picture If You Will), but perhaps that makes him even more terrifying
The name of this episode has multiple meaning, which include something like “The Lives of Death” or “Death’s Lives,” or perhaps “Death’s Ways of Life.” In addition to the “life-related” meanings, there is also an alternate meaning to “vitas” which means to “avoid or evade,” which would give the title the meaning “‘To Avoid/Shun/Evade Death.” All of the possible meanings seem more or less relevant, making this the best-titled Farscape episodes to date, in my opinion. Puns are cool
Welp, this was the latest in a long series of stories of this type, from “Star Trek” (the Old Series, of course), to “Logan’s Run.” Not hideously original, but the main story wasn’t too bad. The Rygel subplot was pretty lame, I have no idea why that was included, if not to show the depths of his depravity
Wow! This was a great episode, and hysterically funny, albeit a little sad at the end. It was interesting to see the extent that John and the others knew exactly what buttons to push, especially John and Aeryn with each other
Chiana discovers a recording with Moya’s original Pilot. After seeing the recording and realizing Aeryn was involved, Pilot orders Aeryn to leave Moya
Astute readers will notice that this episode is 2.06, even though its original airdate was the week after “The Way We Weren’t,” causing a few minor continuity problems. If you think everyone is getting along just a little too well after the harrowing events of TWWW, you are correct, because those events haven’t happened yet!
Note: This episode (2.10) was (amazingly enough) aired out of order with “My Three Crichtons” (2.13). It doesn’t make much of a difference in this case (unlike the way in which LEXX was aired), but it is… interesting
Not the best of episodes I guess, but there were some good moments and some funny dialogue. Most of us will remember this episode I think, because of Zhaan’s brief absence of clothes
To an outside observer, the Nebari seem to be a peaceful, law-abiding bunch of people, but there’s a little more to it than that.
