Goofs

The piece of crystallized organic material that is Aeryn and Crichton's baby, which stayed inside Rygel, has never gone thought the decrystallizing machine. Nevertheless it started growing, and Rygel's stomach acids did not harm it, but it was established earlier in Farscape the series that Rygel's stomach acids are not the same fashion as others, which could mean it could be conducive to not only restoring the baby crystal, but nurturing it as well.

Farscape Returns!
5 December 2004 | by praxis-9See all my reviews

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.

;-)
