Farscape Season 3, Vol. 6 2003 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
You could just wait until next year and buy the whole boxed set of Season 3 (which is worth having), but I couldn’t wait another minute - I buy the eps as soon as they are released.
Episode 312 may interest you because the ‘aliens of the week’ are a duo that taps into classic mythological themes. If the budding romance between Aeryn and one of the Crichtons is what turns your crank, then this episode is for you; it bored the dren out of me, and the frelling cheesy jazz that accompanied the costars’ horniness helped to make this ep look shallow (especially if one remembers the energy between Gilina & Crichton in ‘PK Tech Girl’). Yup, a little bit of sexuality is part of most sci-fi, but when a TV series starts to overplay that card, it’s at the expense of time that could be spent further revealing the universe in which the characters live. I’m a Scaper, but that doesn’t justify giving every episode 5 stars.
The highlight of Episode 312 was Stark’s streak of initiative and freewill…
Episode 313 is totally untamed, unlike any previous episode (except maybe ‘Won’t Get Fooled Again’). While some may not care for its decadent, footloose style, I feel that it was refreshing to see how far the show could be pushed in certain directions. A night out on the town can bring out a side of your friends that you rarely see! The humor implemented in Episode 313 is unique to the series up to this point, and really throws the viewer off balance by showing most of the characters in a different light, and through its creative splicing of the camera and audio work. The bad guys are finally no more than a couple of geeks dressed in clubby clothing. It is also wild to see how Crichton interacts with Francesca Buller, his real-life wife, who plays a truly annoying character named Raxil. This IS a 5 star ep, and it’s a great one to watch with your friends and a round of drinks (with umbrellas in them).
The extras include a 17+ minute interview with Gigi Edgley and a far too short one with Guy Gross, the man who comes up with the music that perfectly fits the scenes of this now legendary show.
