Top 5 episodes of Farscape! (sorry, I'll cool it with the farscape after this :P)

Hahaha, no worries! Like Abed, I do really like talking about Farscape. ;)

1. A Human Reaction (It’s the first episode that really made me sit up and go WOW)

2. Out of Their Minds (Bodyswap episode!)

3. John Quixote (Ben Browder wrote this ep, which is delightfully weird)

4. Unrealized Reality/Kansas/Terra Firma (It’s a trilogy, I’m counting it as one episode)

5. Die Me Dichotomy/Season of Death (so painful but so good)

Thanks, Andrea! :)

the cast list (part 2)

Eokay. I have collected myself from the apparent jailbait insanity that is fifteen-year-old Christian Bale paired with Farscape-era Claudia Black. Once more into the breach?

ooh! I’ve not actually ever seen a Mablung fancast. (I haven’t seen The Prisoner of Zenda either, let‘s see what we’re working with -

… why hello there. The mustache is… off-putting, to say the least. But yeah, I can see it.)

David Niven I’m familiar with, I remember him being fairly on the eyes. Let’s take a look at our Beleg.

So this is technically from 1948′s Enchantment rather than Prisoner of Zenda, but I think I get the general idea. (What’s with the mustachioed Doriathrin though?)

… I gotta admit I’m a little bothered by this.

so our one not-white cast member is playing Daeron, easily one of the most disliked roles in the entirety of Tolkien’s canon? Okay. To the author’s credit: Lani John Tupu is a great character actor. He could, absolutely, play a phenomenal Daeron. And I don’t want to assume that this person was going in with the conscious thought of “only the bad/morally grey people are gonna be not white”. But. I would be a bad liveblogger if I didn’t point that out.
(if you’re at all interested, my headcanon Daeron is David Tennant.)

Since none of them speak, I’m just gonna imagine them as crash test dummies.

Thingol, meet your subjects.

Humans in spaaaaace

Had this thought last night as I lay falling asleep. We have all these space-exploration-ensemble shows with a bunch of aliens each of which has some sort of super-human power, more or less. And humans are always given ~leadership~ as their special power. The ability to bring people together, to organize shit, and I always thought, like…what a shitty power. What a shitty colonial “you were a mess until we came in and saved you” power. Drives me nuts. Seems like if an alien species builds a got-damn ship that can fly through got-damn space they probably have their shit together, right? At least somewhat?

So then I figure, what is humanity got to contribute to all these super-beings? We’re just nonsense reckless critters careening through space. Seems like we’d be more trouble than we’re worth.

But what if…I mean, what if that’s us. We’re the universe’s huckleberries. We’ll run headlong into danger, and we’ll *laugh*. And what if…what if we survive and a weirdly abnormally high rate. Like any alien with two bits of math can put together that we should have wiped ourselves out a long time ago with the first set of “hold my beer, and watch this.” So what the shit, how are we still banging around the universe building shit and flying off solar ramps into the sun while doing some spaceship equivalent of an ollie while crushing beer cans on our forehead. Why. Why do we exist.

And then it hits me. We survive. We’re super good at it. Uncannily good at it. So much so that we…I mean, we actually bend probability in our favor. It’s absurd. And it totally falls flat if you actually tell us this (“Never tell me the odds,” said Solo, knowing full well that knowing the odds kills a human’s chances of survival).

So there we are. Careening around the universe. Joining alien crews because they know that with a human on board, especially a cocky human in some kind of leadership position, can warp probability to stretch success in their favor. And they can never ever tell us this. So instead they just pat our heads and tell us we’re just so good at ~leadership~ and that’s what makes humans special

But really…we’re just a bunch of space dinguses.


[…] at this very moment, people meeting up in secret all over the country were holding up their glasses and saying in hushed voices: ’to Harry Potter - the boy who lived!

On November 5th, 2016, Farscape is leaving Netflix. Here’s why you need to watch it before then.

What it is.

Originally posted by nomartyhere-blog

Farscape ran from 1999 to 2003 (when it was stupidly cancelled) and concluded with a three-hour miniseries called The Peacekeeper Wars in 2004.

What it’s about.

This guy!

His name is John Crichton. He’s an astronaut who gets shot through a wormhole and ends up on the other side of the galaxy. That’s when he meets these guys:

All of them become fugitives on the run from the Peacekeepers (uh… think space Nazis). So while John is trying to figure out how to get back home, he’s also figuring out how to survive on the other side of the galaxy where everything’s nuts.

Why you should watch it.

The short version: did you like Guardians of the Galaxy? Farscape is basically the TV version of Guardians of the Galaxy. The lovable rogue characters, the crazy antics, the found family aspect… it’s all there.

The longer version (under the cut to avoid dash clutter):

anywhere in the universe. you pick the planet.


It’s done. I done did it. Man, I WISH Farscape was a lighthearted sitcom. How amazing would that be. Jim Henson, give me a spinoff.

EDIT: Yes I know it is lighthearted & funny 30% of the time but I mean, less death would be preferable to me, personally.
