"I'm sick of this whole turd-burp end of the universe!"
1 July 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this show, and I loved Season 1 of this show. It's where it all begins. Crichton is only being chased by one obsessed Peacekeeper Commander, the Drama with Aeryn has not started yet, and he's still wearing his IASA Jumpsuit. His 'White Death Pod" has not yet been upgraded with Moya's hardware, and the relationships between Moya's crew are just developing.

So this entry on Crichton's dictation machine (I imagine Jack Crichton listening to this after picking it up from Tranquility Base after "Bad Timing") is a nice Lull in what is to become the PooStorm of the Uncharted Territories and Tormented Space.

The Music is still being done by SubVision which I liked a lot more than Guy Gross (Although Guy re-Subvisioned the main Theme and made it better), so there is that, and this chapter has some nice musical swells.

So Crichton has a Beard for the first time in Farscape. This is a Crichton that has not gone Bugsputz because of Scorpius' Neural Clone or Einstein's Wormhole Implantation. He's just Trapped in the Butt- End of Space with a Sebacian Chick that likes black leather, A miniature Napoleon Bona-Helium-fart, a Blue Arsed B****, The Lake of the Long Tongue, and a guy wearing a clam-shell on his head. Chiana has not yet shown her Eema.

But even Crichton can only take so much, he has to give it a break - When Moya burps and Crichton is trapped on a Butt-Planet. It's a nice rural scene, but Crichton gets sucked into Local Chieftain's Daughters advances and Religious Politics. No matter how much he keeps to himself, the trouble always comes Runnin'.

Eventually Moya comes back: Ka D'Argo and Sparky do an "Away Mission" but there is some Energy field that just... Sucks!

This one is actually for Rygel the XVIth, Displaced Dominar of Hind- Endia. We forget that it's a puppet and Jon hardy is adding his lines in later. Rygel is THAT REAL. But is Rygel just spouting Heliumfarts, or can he really be a true Sovereign?

Masata, Rise up and lead us to the Light!
