Also, my Farscape Geekfest continues! First up, S02E01: Re:Union. Note, this was NOT the first episode to air in S2, they moved up Mind the Baby since it's more of a conventional premier. I love that the writers took the b-team and lead off with them, though I can see why the network balked at this approach. Since Crichton only exists in Zhaan's mind in this episode, not much in the way of Crichtonisms. He says that the past few days haven't been a trip to Disneyland, and that's about it. Nothing too geeky there. Nothing much in S02E02 either, though it's an excellent story which sets up the S2 status quo. Crais seems to work MUCH better as a fugitive than as the main villain of the series.
S02E03: Vitas Mortis is a strong D'Argo character study. Crichtonism of the week is "so, if she wants to rip out your liver, snack on it with a chianti, she can do that?" a nice Hannibal Lecter reference.
S02E04: Taking the Stone is a weaker episode, a Chiana character study. Nothing geeky, but plenty of Crichtonisms. Not only does John do a Curly (from the Three Stooges), but he references Cool Hand Luke ("are we having a failure to communicate here"), wonders if his Excedrin headache was worth it, and calls one of the hippies Bob Marley.
I love how fearless this production company is. Not many shows would intentionally make their male lead look THIS silly. (Check out the scene below)
Farscape: The Complete Series is available for purchase on Amazon, and it's one of the best three tv space operas of all time.
