Which Was Your Favorite Episode?

Postby Andre75 on Tue Mar 25, 2003 6:09 pm

Hi All,

Well, we all had the pleasure in watching Farscape so I'll ask the question:

Which was your favorite episode?

Mine was "Wolf in Sheep's Clothing" I mean how can we forget when Crais committed suicide giving Talyn the command to StarBurst?

That for me was probably the best episode and made for some incredible TV.

What are your thoughts?

It is incredibly difficult to name just one. The episodes that come to mind to me the most are A Clockwork Nebari, Crackers Don't Matter, and Dog With Two Bones, as well as any multi-parter. My absolute favorite shot though is the one near the end of Into the Lion's Den where Scorpy is standing in front of a stairway with water streaming down. It is simply breathtaking. It reminds me of a scene in the Adore video by the Smashing Pumpkins. The shot in Infinite Possibilities of the dreadknought being destroyed by the sun through the wormhole is pretty awe-inspiring as well. Also, after seeing the series finale friday, the last scene for D'argo was so emotional and powerful that it has made a very lasting impression.

Mine was "The Way We Weren't" - Pilot and Aeryn are my two favourite characters!

I'm also very fond of "Out of their Minds", The "Into the Lion's Den" two parter, "DNA Mad Scientist" and of course, "Bad Timing."

The Choice, but we're comparing apples & oranges

Postby Mary Wood on Wed Mar 26, 2003 1:25 am

If I had to name a favorite, "The Choice" would have to be it, but there are so many great eps that are great for their own reasons and are hard to compare to each other. Among them,

The Way We Weren't

Different Destinations

Die Me Dichotomy

DNA Mad Scientist

Bug's Life/Nerve/Hidden Memory (I know it's only the last of those 3 that make up a 2-parter, but I've always seen them as something of a trillogy, with ABL really, really setting the other two up).

Relativity

And yes, even the Premiere.

Really, really difficult. I've been looking at odd episodes through the first three seasons lately. Single favourite episode might be "The Way We Weren't" with some great stuff for Aeryn and Pilot but as everyone else is having a few others I've also really enjoyed:

DNA Mad Scientist

Durka Returns

A Clockwork Nebari

Liars, Guns & Money (all three)

Die Me Dichotomy

Different Destinations

Bringing Home The Beacon

All multi part eps are usually pretty good though.

I was trying to think of mine as I read the thread, but each time I read an episode title I thought "Oh, that one! I loved that one too!" I can't make up my mind, can I list them all?

Chiana-- DR
Noranti- WWL (1)
Stark-- SCW
Sikozu-- UR

Hi!!!!

My favorite ones were "Revenging Angel" and "Won't Get Fooled Again".

In "Revenging Angel" I loved all the cartoon stuff!!! Crighton looks so cute when he's a cartoon... and Scorpios is sooo HOT as a drawing!!!!! ;)

In "Won't Get Fooled Again" I loved the parts with John's mother. Ben Browder did an excellent job in those scenes!! I think he's a great actor!!!

Durka Returns, the premiere of the greatest character to ever walk onto the Farscape scene, and what a memorable inception that it was.

Sincerely,
a friend to all...

Hi All,

You know it's funny, now that I think of it there is another episode that stands out in my mind, "Green Eyed Monster".

That's the episode when Talyn was eaten by that budong. I loved it when Rygel insulted Stark about his plan to save the crew.

One of the funniest episodes is when Crichton is loosing his mind and sees Crais come out of a police car in high heels trying to arrest him but couldn’t because Crichton didn’t understand his rights.

That for me was the funniest.

I loved:

Premiere-can't you just imagine how John felt?

TWWW-for insight into Aeryn's back story,culture, experience with emotions-those big sad eyes---*and you say you loved this man*

GEM-for the J/A *it shouldn't matter*_A, *It does*-J

DWTB- for the imagined wedding

so many others---and of course Season Five part One!

My least favorites: Jeremiah Crichton--that beard

SNS- that essence milking machine and the heifer remark

Coup by Clam-John in drag-ack

Lava- vulgar

Levine is correct it is nearly impossible to answer.
Lets try anyways.

Best 1st Season episode: NERVE
Best 2nd " " : WWW
Best 3rd " " : INCUBATOR
Best 4th " " : UNREALIZED REALITY
Best 2 parter : NERVE/HM
Best 3 " : LGM
Best Comedy : OOTM
Best Drama : WWW
Best Horror : EAT ME
Best S-F : UR
Best Cartoon Short : Revenging Angel
Best Experimental Film : WGFA
Best "Artsy" Episode : John Q

Best Actress : Claudia Black
Best Supprting Actress : Gigi Edgely
Best " Actor : Anthony Simcoe

CDM is probably the best representative episode of
what FARSCAPE was about. Anger , Love, Comedy, Drama,
off center approach, not very serious; yet deadly consequences for actions.

What? best actor =Wayne Pygram???? I admit he does a good job(and is nice in person, plus he looks like a younger Patick Stewart), but....

I would have to choose BenBrowder, several times nominated and at least once winner of the Saturn award.Yeah, he's uneven, but he can do more with one little facial tic, one sideways glance, one inflection of voice than the Stargate Dude does in a month of eps.And the sneaky devil manged to get a line of Shakespeare into La Bomba. He has a degree in psychology from Furman, which shows in his interpretations of character, but his acting training was in England and he is fond of Shakesperean drama--with little chance to use it.
Plus he had tremendous input into the entire show,including the two eps he wrote.

And why the quotes around*actor* _( Oh I guess that's a ditto for supporting?)-for Anth. Do you think it's easy to portray subtleties through those prosthetics? It's very difficult when all you see are his eyes.Anth has a Master's in Drama and teaches it in OZ.He's kind of wild and crazy in person with his rock band and all, but I really enjoy his character.

Best Muppet: Pilot-all six people who ran him. That was one thing I wished I could see for real. owell
