I think I just might make it. I'm gonna get the whole series in before the mini. I've seen through Coup by Clam.

Firstly, Stark!! John Quixote was awesome. I love Ben Browder and I love crazy Not!Stark and I totally wasn't expecting to see Actual!Zhaan, so that was cool. (Although what was up with with the really bulbous shape of her head? :P) Aeryn as a floozy Southern Belle was hilarious and I'm in love with John's helmet and I want one. Yes.

But let's see, going backward a bit. Lava's a Many Splendored Thing was a fun throwaway episode. The vomiting thing was kinda gross, but I'm used to that by now. I think I just love the John/D'Argo buddy episodes. Promises was faaaaabulous, cause I missed Aeryn ohsomuch. I'm wondering if we're ever going to get the backstory on what happened while she was gone, mostly because I don't understand how she can expect John to not want to kill Scorpius. Did she see S2? It's entirely not fair.

Speaking of though, I do love the whole thing with Scorpius on Moya. I don't trust him at all, but I really like him. He's going to do something awful soon, I just know it, but I don't care! Oh, and! I felt so bad when he killed Harvey! How do you feel bad for a mental clone? :P

The big thing so far though has been the John and Aeyrn dynamic. We haven't really dealt with the fallout of S3 as much as I would have liked, and I'm wondering if that's still coming? Aeryn came back just kind of expecting everything to be better, and John's heart is still ripped into little pieces on the floor of the cargo bay. It kills me when he sniffs that thing that Noranti gave him to "take the edge off a bit." Like when she was trying to speak English. Gah. I love them so. Are they going to be happy by the end of this season or what?

Random things:
1. I can't get over Aeyrn's change in physical appearance. It takes me out of the scene too much, cause I can't stop marvelling at how PRETTY she is.
2. I don't think I quite understand this pregnancy thing. How does she know when she's pregnant? Is it possible it's John's or does it only make sense that the baby belongs to someone she slept with while she was still a Peacekeeper? I think I just didn't get the whole 7 year thing.
3. I think I just don't like new characters. I'm not really into Noranti at all, and Sikozu was really cool at first but now not so much. Maybe because no one else likes her, or maybe because she's got some weird fascination with Scorpius that I don't understand, I don't know.
4. John Quixote is one of my new favorite episodes.
5. Coup by Clam and John in drag. Enough said.
6. Aeryn. Is. So. Pretty.

Hopefully Netflix will pull through and I'll get everything in time. Otherwise, I'll just have to tape it and watch it later. The good thing about this whole thing though? Most fans have been waiting forEVER for this mini, and I'll be finished with the series just before the conclusion airs. ;)

In other news, I think I did really well on my history midterm today, so that's a check in the plus column. I have to go shower and eat and go to the library and read some Emerson before my class tonight, though, so I'm off. Also, my computer's being really weird at the moment, so yeah. Going away from it now.

Erm, hello? Farscape, remember?

I actually enjoy Sikozu quite a lot, and Sikozu/Scorpy = evil!OTP!!! I think it may be a bit of a backlash from Jool, whose incessant screaming drove me up the proverbial wall. Happiness that Jool's gone = liking Sikozu. Maybe...

The pregnancy thing is explained further later in the season so I won't spoil you.

You're right. I think a lot of my initial Sikozu love came from the fact that I was happy she was so much cooler than Jool, and that Jool was gone, cause I definitely could have done without her for most of S3. I guess now I'm just not really sure where Sikozu fits in, and since nobody else on Moya seems to like her I haven't really been able to relate to her yet.

And I'm so glad the pregnancy thing will be explained more, cause I was worried it was going to be one of those Farscape things I was just gonna have to figure out on my own. Like with Chiana's visions--I missesd the one line in one of the S3 episodes that explained what was going on, and so when she comes back in S4 with these weird visions and blindness, I was so confused. :P
