Trivia

Melissa Jaffer (Noranti) was to have had a larger part in the miniseries, but a bad reaction to the makeup forced her to drop out after only a few scenes. Most of her scenes were rewritten for other characters (most notably her officiating John and Aeryn's marriage went to Rygel) and later glimpses of Noranti are actually a look-alike. See more »

Goofs

In between the end of the Farscape series and the Peacekeeper Wars, Pilot's voice changes. But if you check the credit it is the same voice actor, 'Lani Tupu'. (Tupu is also the actor who played Captain Bialar Crais.) See more »

Quotes

Stark: I'll take your pain.
Ka D'Argo: No, pain is good. Means I'm alive.
Stark: Then let me help you to the other side.
Ka D'Argo: Frell, Stark. This is the other side. I was hoping to go back.

Culmination of all that is best in Farscape
21 October 2004 | by (Washington DC USA) – See all my reviews

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.
