Gotta upgrade video quality before thinking of making any vids. Don't know how fast people would get sick of my videos as you can probably guess what they'd be about.... Maybe Santa will give me a nice gift this year too??
So for anyone out there.....remember, this is the first time i've ever seen the full series of Farscape and it's 2016! (i'm so behind).....I watched from season 1-4 in roughly 3 months.
Luckily though (you could say), I learnt that I accidentally skipped 2 episodes while i was watching the extras and reading up on some episodes.
Well, I worked myself up to watch one of those episodes last night "Through the Looking Glass" season 1 and what a trip that was. It was so surreal cuz it was like a reunion show but it's in the middle of s.1 and it's one of the only shows where i can remember them all together and laughing, like in lots of screen time. I totally loved it and it felt nostalgic (even though it's been about 2 weeks since I finished the series)...and it was such an insane show (probably the most insane one if I think about it) and it reminded me how crazy the show was (is).
So for anyone out there, if you accidentally skip this episode, you don't really lose anything and it's probably the best show you could skip if you do (funny as that sounds) because you get this really eerie flashback when you finally come back to it. I also recommend "Through the Looking Glass" if you just want to watch a really happy episode where everyone is all together and laughing (like seriously, Rygel was on a roll in this one).....but also a great example of how insane the show could be!
Edit: I just want to add that i noticed Chiana quite a bit in this episode. It seemed like she was breaking the 4th wall quite a bit....(which might be another good reason to watch this episode for fans of hers......and another thing was she had an Australian accent which was quite noticeable which i never noticed before....Mandella effect anyone??...)

I've never wanted to buy a video game just because of a voice before! (this is new) .......relevant to Farscape is Claudia Black in Call of Duty game 2016 with.....some space action!.... In case any fans are interested....
At the beginning and at 2:05
Have you seen the Peacekeepers Wars?
And also -- Claudia Black also does the voice of the female character in Uncharted (not the last game though).
And she's in the American remake of Cordon -- Flemish tv-show about a deadly outbreak. The remake has one season, the original Flemish version has two seasons (so far).
yes, I've seen Peacekeeper Wars. I clearly remember holding it off because I knew it was the last I could watch of Farscape, and I didn't know if it would address the season 4 end scene but refused to check online in case of spoilers, and then I dived into it and when the 'to be continued' screen hit, i was literally freaking out in my room because there was more to watch yes yes yes!
Thanks for the other suggestions. I still have one episode i missed from FS to watch but i've been pretty busy lately (and during s.4, i never let myself watch episodes if i had other things on my mind). I'll probably dive into Star Gate after that.....if any....i'm not big on tv series but i am a massive fan of FS and CB now. (lots of emotional investment....i'm overly sentimental, especially after FS now.... *sniff sniff)
I never appreciated how what some people call how 'sexy' Aeryn/Claudia's voice was until after the completing the series (i'll call it hypnotic) and finally allowing myself to youtube FS material and discovering how many video game etc., voice overs Claudia Black has done which made my "fascination" of her even more as i am major video game geek as well (of course I am). I love the idea that her voice was another thing that crept up on me from nowhere and is another element of why I'm so fascinated by the show.
I was on a plane the other day and there was this relaxation tape to listen to and i could have sworn it was Claudia Black and I was like 'no way, not here too'.....turned out it wasn't but if she did anything like that, I would be buy every one of them.....Claudia, if you're out there, please do some relaxation therapy tapes....!!
Aeryn Sun: ...now imagine your smile filling up the right corner of your mouth...breath slowly in... breath out....
The second episode i missed on my first run of FS was Dream a Little Dream, Re: Union.......seems like the ones i missed were all the good ones because according to Farscape trivia, this episode was the original opening episode to kick off season 2 but was re-ordered and re-shot for reasons....
my short little take on this episode and overall Zhann review is loved seeing her again, after a while, Zhaan always made me laugh everytime she would cry "noooooooooooeww", (although she doesn't do it in this episode)....... i swear it became her catch phrase at some point and the director was doing it purposely to make us laugh (nooooooooeeeww)....or anytime a scene demanded physical exertion from here lol......(of course no one could mess with crazy Zhann....which never fully fleshed out, thankfully for anyone who dare got in her way)
Short and simple tho, this episode is like a whodunit court case episode and totally stands on its own so its no wonder i didn't feel like i had missed anything in continuity. Great performance from Chiana in it (starting to appreciate her more, I didn't start to really really like her character until s.4 when she said something like "to bad we're still alive or it hasn't killed us yet John"....i felt she had really earned her stripes by then she was John's go-to-gal for anything important by that time.....his trust in her was solid by then and i don't i think you could have said the same in earlier seasons. I do recall perhaps my only "rewind scene" with Chiana in it in s.4 coincidentally too (which i couldn't believe at the time).... which i will gif one day when i get quality video and if it passes the censors Lastly on Chiana, i think it helps to watch her real life interviews after, because she seems super cool and just totally different from her character which brings a new respect to her acting and character.
Most memorable quote in this episode: (after releasing some helium) Rygel: "We're in court, so sue me!"
After watching both "season 2 opening episodes", yes, I prefer the way it was televised. It just got everyone back together in a hurry where they all belonged...(loved how FS did that.....just gave us the goods so we could enjoy it and get on with the next adventure).....and they were really playing up the "oh the family is back together again", which was kinda in your face and maybe a little cringe worthy (no..i take that back) though it was good to establish that and get you thinking about it (maybe i wasn't totally there yet in terms of the family reunion thing so good thing they did it!). Not only that, but for me......the s.2 opening episode had 2 of the most rewinded scenes ever for me and it was probably the point when i like really really fell for the Aeryn/CB character and couldn't wait until the next time she was on screen to confirm my suspicion...(plan to make gifs of them too someday)........one of the scenes i'm talking about is when John and Aeryn are hugging each other by Pilot like ordinary couples for the first time....i rewinded this scene like so many times......the way she moves her neck and forehead towards John (gotta be her natural mannerisms brought out on camera, loved it!).......and of course her pretty little baby hairs swaying in the light....the best part tho was when she lets out a soft "hmmm??"..(i believed she really slipped up here and showed us more of her true self by accident...and they even kept the shot and recorded voice on it ).....oh man......John (Ben actually) totally teased her for letting her guard down on camera.... you could totally tell.... **heart**
The other scene in this episode that makes it on my "most rewinded scenes in the series ever" was when Aeryn enters Tayln and her arms are totally bare (i think like the most ever til then and even that was enough to steal the scene)....and then she reaches up with both arms and hangs on to the bars for a brief moment.....oh man...totally foreign up until then........and you had Crais.....even the possibility of Dargo (which was always there especially in s.1).....good stuff *thumbs up*

Unless you didn't understand what was being said (I never watch with subtitles, or in Farscape's case for the hearing impaired), what's the point in rewinding? Especially when you can watch the episodes over and over, and over again on DVD (or downloaded).
I may actually be brain impaired =P I found myself going back with subtitles more than a few times just to catch what (usually) Scorpius (the mastermind) was saying.
Just going to post a few confessions that i have about the show....and document them for any Farscape fans out there lol.....in case we share the same ones or maybe it scratches an itch in the back of your head somewhere.....(and also test out the spoiler tag!...I will end up overusing the spoiler tag too but....)....Feel free to post yours too if you like....
Confession # 1
Confession # 2
I thought this was a 2016 event but it's actually from 2013 but i'll post it anyways. If you haven't seen it yet it's a nice little condensed version of Ben and Claudia at FedCon in Germany in 2013 about 20:00 long.
Some good stuff in there like Claudia (i'll call her Aeryn if you don't mind).....Aeryn singing, John narrowly escaping galactic political disaster, a great ending and of course lots of "other" good moments
Have your translator microbes ready
