Tonight were two episodes, both of which I love, for very different reasons: Relativity and Incubator.

Both of them are, in different ways, about what forms you, about parents and heritage and being confronted with reality different from prior beliefs. In Relativity, the target is Aeryn, in Incubator, Scorpius. The fact that FS did a whole episode about Scorpius, and made me understand exactly what makes him tick, and revealed his complexity even further, and yet never descended into ‘poor and misunderstood’ is a brilliant miracle. His back-story is horrific, but he is not any less horrific himself, for it.



Very long thoughts on Relativity. Aeryn-centric )

Incubator is a very unusual episode, Scorpius centric. It’s not an ep I would rewatch a lot, but it is probably one of the densest, most complex, most meta-full episodes out there.

Today's episode is Green-Eyed Monster, one of the eps that elicits nothing but 'squee' from me (well, it elicits plenty of other, coherent reactions, but speaking metaphorically).



I am also amused that GEM is one of the shippiest eps out there and it was written by Ben Browder. Gotta love when actors are shippers.

You know another thing this ep made me think of? How eternally grateful I am to Farscape for not creating any stupid contrived love triangles. There is no one for Aeryn but John, and there is no one for John but Aeryn. They have plenty to overcome and deal with in their different lives and traumas without adding contrived, soapy complications to the mix.

GEM rambles )

Losing Time is a lovely ep I like (don’t I say that about almost all of them, though). I love that you never stop believing that both Moya John and Talyn John are ‘equal and original.’

I couldn't watch any Farscape today because Mr. Mousie was working and he wanted to watch it with me. But I have a solemn promise for eps tomorrow :)

Meanwhile, to tide me over, I found this awesome 'Beyond Hope' John/Aeryn MV:



You know, with John/Aeryn, I really understand the phrase 'sick with love.' It's uncontrollable.

This is probably my favorite TV on-screen kiss ever.

From Peacekeeper Wars:

Cut for size )

Oh boy. Aeryn has just given birth to their child. In the middle of battle, of course. To rebel, their kids would probably want to be accountants.

ETA: OMG. I found a still from one of my all time favorite FS moments. It's from the end of S4's 'We're so screwed, Part 1' one of my fave eps. John has found and rescued Aeryn, and carried her to her quarters (and OMG, he is still head to toe dressed in PK leather, a sort of distancing thing: I mean he even had gauntlets on). But he took the gauntlets off and put her down and is prepared to leave (I love that he respects her to give her space she needs and knows after her torture he should not do anything, push anything. If anyone is an expert on torture effects, it's John). And she quietly asks him to stay and it's one of the biggests exhibits of her love for him: allowing him to see her supremely vulnerable. And he kisses her palm and OMG he just sits there, on the floor by her bed, still holding her. And he just falls asleep there and you realize how exhausted he must have been because I bet he couldn't sleep for days.

Anyway, the look of relief and love and surprise on his face when she asks him to stay? Kills me. Especially since he feels (once again) soul-damned and unclean. And the palm kissing? OMG

Thanks for Sharing is one of the Farscape episodes I really, really like. And not just because doubling the Crichtons doubles the hot.



It's a jam-packed, clever, fast episode that is not mind-bogglingly depressing. What is not to love?

Yesterday’s episodes were Different Destinations and Eat Me which are two of the darkest FS episodes out there. Seriously. Don’t watch them when you are depressed, it might make you want to bang your head on the wall.

In fact, I think DD is the single most depressing, bleakest episode of Farscape and one I find hardest to watch. There are more heartbreaking episodes out there, true. Episodes I ended up sobbing in (DMD for one). But the reason DD is so profoundly bleak is that the message, the meaning of the story seems to be: there is no point in trying, anything you do makes it worse and there is nothing you can do to make it right.



Thoughts on DD )

Eat Me, despite being the closest Farscape came to sheer horror, is not as nihilistic as DD.

So. It was the Self-Inflicted Wounds two-parter tonight.



Yeah.

I am kinda verklempt. And that was it for tonight because if I made a trio with Different Destinations, there'd be some serious wrist-slitting.

Ep 3.02 of Farscape, “Sons and Lovers” is one of my favorites, in some ways. For Farscape it is a light, happy ep, much needed before the sorrow of the coming two parter, then the bleakness of DD and all the queasiness starting with Eat Me.



Of course, by standards of most other shows, this would be a heavy, serious ep: Zhaan is still dying, D’Argo finds out his son and his gf cheated with each other (!) etc. But it is not like that at all, and not just because of razor sharp writing (some of the best, sharpest dialogue, IMO). Zhaan is dying but not gone, and there is hope she will find a proper planet and heal. No one is dead or driven insane. No one is even hunting Moyans this time, and you can’t even say they are merely at the wrong place at the wrong time because they end up saving the situation so it’s good for people at the station they ended up there. No one important dies, and the death toll is super low even for the extras. It is, in Moya terms, a good day.

The mother of lengthy metas )

This ep has such awesome dialogue, I simply have to quote.

Awesome quotes )

And I couldn't help it. Here are the caps from the gorgeous episode. I love the lushness of the colors. Caps courtesy of Farscape-Caps (if you are looking for caps, I'd also like to recommend F.E.I ran by the amazing [livejournal.com profile] scottishlass)

Click here for some gorgeousness )

And I lied. Not the last thing. Here are the caps (also from fs-caps) of my all time favorite FS scene, the one from Season of Death that I blabbed about earlier, John finding out Aeryn is alive, and falling apart first in disbelief and then joy.
