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 »

Having been a fan of this show since I first saw it on BBC 2 in 1999, I sat down to watch PKW with some nervousness, Farscape's characters are like a family in a way. A family who you visited every week, you shared their highs and lows, their loves and hates.
Would Peacekeeper Wars be faithful to the series? Or would it be a hodge podge of ideas and scenes with none of the old humanity?
Happily my fears were unjustified. PKW grabs you by the throat and does not let go.
The acting was, as usual, superb with believable characters, The bad guys do not resort to the cliché of being bad for the sake of it. Everyone has their reasons for doing what they do.
The effects were amazing and the story line is a roller coaster ride.
Admittedly, there are times when the compressed season 5 storyline jars. But this is forgivable.
The rumour at the time of filming was that the mini series used up all the available squibs in Australia. After seeing the battle scenes, you realize why!
All in all, a good ending to this part of the story while still leaving a way to make more.
Let's hope Moya keeps flying and we visit her crew in the future.
