Between the end of the Farscape series and this miniseries production, the sound processing and makeup was changed to different companies. Hence, the different sound for Pilot, even though it was the same voice actor and the makeup difficulties for Noranti, even though the same actress played the same part without problem for a full season of the series plus one episode. Obviously the character makeup was changed, and not for the better. The actress had to pull out after shooting only a few scenes, after a bad reaction to the new makeup. The attempt to film her part with a double (while she voiced the dialogue) was abandoned part-way through filming as the double was not very convincing. The character is almost completely absent for the final two-thirds of the 3-hour mini-series and even then you only catch glimpses of her from behind or the side. See more »
At the end of 'Bad Timing' when Aeryn and John were transformed into crystals, their pulse pistols are clearly visible in the pile (the pistols had not turned into crystals). However, when they were reconstituted at the beginning of 'The Peacekeeper Wars' the first thing they did was pull their guns which were, supposedly, still in their holsters. See more »
John! You went there, didn't you?
I went the whole way there.
I didn't want you to do that.
Yes, you did. Everybody wants to see the great big wormhole weapon.
No, I want to see war turned into peace.
War and Peace, War and Peace. Did you know that Woody Allen's version is better than Tolstoy's? Because it is funnier and absolute power corrupts, absolutely. Where the hell's my pen? Where's my pen?
This is what you want!
No, Aeryn it is not what I want! It's just that fate keeps blocking all the...

This miniseries neatly wraps up the plots and characters of the always inventive, wildly funny, and deeply intelligent Farscape. (Check out the first four seasons for proof).
And it does so with panache! It's wonderful to see Crichton, Aeryn, D'Argo, Chiana, Moya, Pilot and Rygel back, their inimitable selves as usual. And of course the Scarrans, Scorpius, Grayza and a host of other less than savory characters also make their presence keenly felt.
I won't talk about the plot (people have done so already), but the acting and the characters and the plot are all raised to the next level. The wit is just as sharp, the emotions just as strong, and many loose ends get tied up (but not so tightly that there can't be more future Farscape if the creators decide to go that route).
The last hour of the mini is enough to justify it a permanent place on my DVD shelf whenever it comes out. I cried, I laughed, I gasped. I was thoroughly entertained. Truly, some of the best sci-fi out there.
