So I couldn't restrain myself and I watched the last few episodes. And that finale?



I don't really have any words or anything coherent to say. I'm reasonably sure everyone's gonna make it out okay, since there are two more seasons of the show, but sheesh. That one took a lot out of me.

It killed me to watch John and Aeryn finally say I love you, right before he knocked her out. He was actually very creepy as Scorpius, and for once the British accent didn't bug me. Maybe it was the costume.

And ohhhh. The tear! The TEAR! I can't stand it when that man cries. Little tiny shreds, I tell you.

That whole season. Was just amazing. I don't think there was one episode that I didn't love, (well, except for maybe that one with D'Argo and the priest woman at the beginning). I went through it a lot more quickly than I'd anticipated, I think I'm going to just watch them all again.


Also, I'm looking into just buying the third season. I think it's safe to say that I love this show now, and that I'll want to watch these episodes again in the near future, and possibly ring some of my friends in as well. If I can find it reasonably priced on eBay or Amazon.com, I'm gonna go for it.

Ahhhh! Little itty bitty shreds!!!

I toooold you! DMD is just, like, the ultimate cliffhanger. And besides that, it's a beautiful episode. Farscape does finales *so* well.

(I always repeat myself whenever someone watches this episode, I know I do.)

But. Yes. I watched it about an hour before I had to go to work and I could barely stand to wait the 40 or so minutes I had to before I could see Season of Death.

Isn't that ice planet the prettiest thing? All the lovely blues. DMD is just a very pretty episode, period. With the shot of John and Aeryn from the back, the almost-kiss in the neural cluster, and the whole prowler-module chase sequence.

My favorite bit of continuity? Scorpius humming the Star Spangled Banner.

S2 does totally rule. There were a few episodes in the beginning I didn't like (Vitas Mortis being one of them) but after LATP? I pretty much love everything, even The Ugly Truth, which most people seem to dislike.

And guess what? S3 is better. :)

The whole episode was just beautifully shot, the sets and the pacing and everything about it. I didn't want it to end. The wide shots were just amazing.

And I totally didn't catch Scorpy humming. Now I have to go watch it again (not that I mind. :P).

I think LATP was the turning point for me, too. Every single episode from there on was just stellar. Just the right amount of angst and funny and everything else. And I did actually like The Ugly Truth, it was interesting to see how everyone interpreted the same event differently, and how John and Aeryn's interpretations were almost the same. Also, I was really upset because I thought Stark actually died. ;)

And eeee! I can't wait for S3. :)))

I scrolled past all the spoilers. But you should buy the series. Yep. If only so you can suck me into it in a month. :)

I think I'm gonna have to. But I'm gonna buy S3, first. So far I'm a high bidder on a very low priced edition, but who knows if I'll win, cause there are 3 days left in the auction. But I want!!

And I know you were kinda iffy on the beginning, but everyone was right and this show gets soooo much better. S2 was awesome.

Just look at that man cry! Look at him!!
