Ka D'Argo: I am a full-blooded Luxan, and ladies, I have so much cash in my pocket that I can assure you that the three of us will be out of here on our hands and knees come sunrise tomorrow morning. I've been arrested for saying exactly the same thing on four different planets.

A very trippy episode
25 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Having annoyed Pilot with their constant bickering Crichton and D'Argo have been kicked off Moya for ten days. They are on LoMo, a pleasure planet but continue to bicker while Chiana and Jool enjoy themselves. While in a bar the boys are approached by a couple of alien girls; their drinks get spiked, their money is stolen and they wake up in a somewhat compromising position while a crowd look on through a large window. As they recover they realise they can't contact the girls but assume it is just because they are asleep. Soon a female alien called Rexal tells them that Chiana and Jool are in grave danger. They are with FeTor; a man involved in the trade of freslin; a powerful drug which we later learn is produced from sentient beings.

This episode is a lot of fun with none of the darkness of many recent episodes; that doesn't mean there isn't a sense of danger though. The way the show is edited with lots of sudden cuts gives the viewer a feeling of the affects of the freslin on the protagonists; it also makes one wonder what one is seeing is what really happened or just what they think happened. The cast did a fine job; it was fun watching Ben Bowder and Anthony Simcoe bickering as Crichton and D'Argo... and utterly hilarious to see what they looked like behind the window! Gigi Edgely and Tammy MacIntosh get to show how seductive they can be as Chiana and Jool. FeTor made a good villain; not obviously monstrous but particularly unpleasant when we learn just what he is up to; Rexal is an even more interesting character as it is ambiguous whether she is good or bad or just using Crichton and D'Argo for her own ends. This episode also features a very interesting alien; a species known as the Hangi that records what it sees and can play it back using a neural connection... this has the interesting effect that D'Argo gets to meet Harvey when both he and Crichton are viewing images together.

This episode is definitely a treat to fans of the series although casual viewers may be left somewhat bemused... although given that most episodes are part of an overall plot arc it is unlikely that many people watch it casually.
