Should have included a spoiler warning in my last post, too. Sorry.
Before I begin to gush, here's a little link for Kiki: http://www.bbc.co.uk/cult/farscape/swearing/clip0.shtml
Does that answer your question? ;-) Thanks for the update from Real Life, btw.
And, speaking of Real Life, spending four hours in the same room as my Spanish teacher every day is entirely too much. It's a good thing the week is almost over - we change teachers every week. I really, really, really don't need a crush now.
And now for a teeny tiny bit of FS gushing.
Oh. My. God. This ep was perfect. Way too much to mention here now, 'cause I can't afford to go to bed as late as yesterday tonight. So, just a few notes.
- The thermonuclear bomb. It's like a neanderthal planning to hit a space age man over the head with a large rock - crude, but effective, and it might just work, as long as you have the surprise on your side. But, god, John must be desperate to walk around with a nuclear bomb(!!!!!!!!!! I'm running out of exclamation marks here!) wired to his heartbeat! Two quotes come to mind:
"My plans suck." (John, Twice Shy)
"This plan is so stupid, it has to be ours." (D'Argo, don't remember which ep)
Yes indeed, but that's why we love you guys. ;-)
- the 'America' speech. Wow. What's with all the open political commentary this season? Have the writers finally lost control of their inner liberal? ;-) Democracy and Capitalism. Heh. Maybe FS was cancelled because it didn't fit the current political agenda. Break out the conspiracy theories!
Also loved the reactions to John's little performance:
Some guy: "He's crazy!"
Aeryn: "Isn't it fun?"
- John and Aeryn in the elevator. *Hmpf melts for the second time in three days due to a shippy scene*
That just may have been the most romantic Farscape scene ever, for me, and that's saying a *lot*. It was *beautiful*.
And all that with an atomic bomb wired to John. What a uniquely Farscape-like situation to get shippy in.
- John and Aeryn bickering about who should kill Scorpy. Both of them, somehow, finding themselves unable to do it. Great stuff.
As much as it hurts to lose the show now, I'm immensely glad that the second half of the season has such a high number of truly great eps. There's something to be said for going out on a bang, not a whimper.
And besides, of course, we're going to get our show back. We *are*. I know it. :-)
