still haven’t gotten answers to many of our questions about
last season’s cliffhangers, but that’s fine with me. I like
the fact that things are moving forward and not wasting a lot of
this year’s time on last year’s problems. Sooner or later
the explanations will trickle in and they’ll probably be
doozies when they do.
we have something else to think about – are Humans and
Sebaceans really the “kissin’ cousins” John claimed in
Season One, with Interions as another branch of the family? The
tiles found on Arnessk seem to indicate as much. And speaking of
Season One, I kept thinking of John’s Jeremiah Crichton
speech where he complains about the alien creatures “in my
face, up my nose, inside my brain, down my pants.” The more
things change, the more they remain the same.
What Was Lost, most of the crew is back together and working as
a team. Some of the best episodes come from the Hole in the Sky
gang foiling the marshals and getting out of Dodge and this one
is no exception, although it’s not quite as much fun with
Sundance (Aeryn) missing. The episode has a million layers to
it, ranging from double entendres to Leviathan kamikazes and
it’s one that needs to be watched several times to catch
everything. It moves fast, sometimes too fast, but that’s what
the reverse button on my VCR is for.
After getting away from You-Know-Who, John shudders and
dunks himself in the water. Can’t say I blame him, either.
Besides smelling terrible he has to feel terrible. It was bad
enough that it happened, he also seemed pretty annoyed that
“everybody” knew it had happened. Even worse, Grayza knows
about Aeryn. Maybe that hasn’t really registered with John
yet, but it will.
It looks like another of my favorite characters is going to be
missing from most if not all future episodes of Farscape. Just
when Jool was beginning to fit in, she’s out and I, for one,
am very sorry to see her go. It was fun watching her learn to
live in less than ideal conditions for a girl of her upbringing
and background. Now she’s got her work cut out for her if
she’s going to bring those priests 12,000 years ahead into the
present. I hope Interions have long life spans.
During Season Three, Chiana was nothing more than a background
character in most episodes and I really missed her. Finally,
she’s “out there’ once more where she belongs. Welcome
back, Chi! It’s good to see you again.
If being shot at point-blank range didn’t kill him, getting
out of that grave will be a piece of cake. Did anyone else think
the fountain Scorpy-on-a-leash was drinking from should have
been a toilet?
Not even his promotion to Captain will make up for the hell his
life is going to be with Grayza as his commanding officer. A few
more weekens of her and he’ll be begging Scorpius to take him
As far as villains go, so far Grayza falls pretty far down on
the nastiness scale. Whatever her true agenda is, she seems more
interested in seduction than anything else. Unless she starts
putting Peacekeeper business before hot sheets, she’s going to
get boring really fast. And while I’m on the subject,
I think she puts a little bit too much faith in that
sweat of hers. Now she’s got the woman-scorned thing going on
Neither of Lani Tupu’s characters has been around yet this
season. I didn’t expect to see Crais, him being dead and all,
really enjoyed this episode. The scenery was gorgeous, the story
was engrossing, the CGI was outstanding and the cast did their
wizardry. But there
were a couple of things that bothered me.
was Rygel the only one who was even a little bit sad about Elack
and his Pilot’s death? Last week John was calling the old
Pilot “Sweetheart” and telling her not to worry, they’d
take care of her. Well, they took care of her all right and
nobody even acknowledged her death.
didn’t John stick around and talk to the priests for a little
while? They may hold the key to the origins of the human race.
Shouldn’t he be a little bit interested?
was with those two Peacekeeper guards when Jool was screaming
her handcuffs off? Were they deaf as well as blind?
