Soo many heartstring tugging, bawl your eyes out, drown the nieghbourhood in tears episodes in this fantastic show. Funny isn't it how attached we normal (or not teehee) folk get to, well, lights and sounds on a box. Geez the human psyche is a fascinating place!
I personally feel sad for the characters most of the time, because even during the good times, you know that TPTB will throw a equally/more powerful sadness wave at you to make up for the happiness. It is a dark
show. Dark and powerful.
Here's a little exerpt from www.toughpigs.com
that really sums up farscape's writing for me...
I can't help but imagine what Christmas is like at Rockne O'Bannon's house. The kids open up their presents, and they get just what they wanted. They tell Dad how much they love their new train set. "Oh, you DO, do you?" says Rockne. "Well, now I'm setting it on FIRE and throwing it out the WINDOW! Ha HA!" No, don't do it, the kids sob. Please! Not again! "Now, where's your puppy?" No, Dad! No! Not the puppy!
Pilot, how in the beginning was in constant pain and he just learned ot live with it, that made me sad.
D'argo's obsession with his son, but once he finds him, it blows up in his face.
Crichton and his mom, that was a huge one for me. In Won't Get Fooled Again, how he was just on the floor sobbing in fear and feeling so alone.
Rygel comforting Elack's pilot was really touching.
Noranti's scene with Rygel at the end of the We're So Screwed trilogy, about killing and such was really touching as well.
Talyn's final starburst have me shivers.
Then trillions of John and Aeryn ones too.
"I would put my life in your hands, but not my heart." majorly powerful scene
...well that wasn't long, not at all
btw, the Tough Pigs farscape reviews are absolutely marvelous, it's interesting to see a totally different take on the show
Does THAT kind of love really exist? You know in Human Reality here on Earth?
If it does, the people who have experienced it should really consider themselves blessed
Actually, that's a crazy topic...love that deep, and they've been through SO much together. Can anyone here on Earth say that they've been through similar experiences??
