Today being the day that it is, I had intended to write a pithy and poignant post reminiscing about my happy days on Farscape…
“That Old Black Magic” (season 1, episode 8)
• Written by me, directed by Brandon Maher •
In which Crichton visits the House of Lego and must deal with two shouty men, Zhaan almost gets lucky, and Rygel suffers from a Hynerial disease.

“PK Tech Girl” (season 1, episode 7)
• Written by Nan Hagan, directed by Tony Tilse •
In which Crichton makes a new friend, Rygel finds an old friend, and Aeryn fries a turtle.
“Thank God It’s Friday… Again” (season 1, episode 6)
• Written by David Wilks, directed by Rowan Woods •
Another “Weird Planetary Society of the Week” ep, wherein Aeryn gets to do some science and D’Argo just gets some. Oh, and John contemplates his navel and Rygel saves the day by peeing.
“Back and Back and Back to the Future” (season 1, episode 5)
• Written by Babs Greyhosky, directed by Rowan Woods •
And — appropriately enough, on Ben Browder’s birthday — the Farscape Rewatch continues at last, with a twisty little ep full of weird-talking aliens! Continue reading “Froon’s Farscape Watch, s1e05”
“Throne for a Loss” (season 1, episode 4)
• Written by me, directed by Pino Amenta •
Now, where were we…?
Oh, right. 104!
This was my first script for Farscape. I’ll save the long, boring behind-the-scenes stuff for another day, but here’s the short, boring behind-the-scenes stuff: Continue reading “Froon’s Farscape Watch, s1e04”
“Exodus from Genesis” (season 1, episode 3)
• Written by Ro Hume, directed by Brian Henson •
This’ll be a truly fresh rewatch, because literally the only thing I remember offhand about this ep is “Kabuki Peacekeepers.” Roll it…
“I, E.T.” (season 1, episode 2)
• Written by Sally Lapiduss, directed by Pino Amenta •
And to forestall a bunch of “what is the ‘correct’ episode order?” questions: I’m calling this ep 2 because it was production number 10102, so I always thought of it as ep 2. Continue reading “Froon’s Farscape Watch, s1e02”
It’s 19 March, aka “Farscape Day”, and that strikes me as the perfect time to (finally) crack open the Blu-Rays and rewatch the series… something I haven’t done in, well, ever. I probably haven’t watched most of these eps since they first aired, so this should be… interesting. (Well, interesting to me, anyway.) Continue reading “Froon’s Farscape Watch, s1e01”
“Speculative fiction author and bad influence” (her self-description) K. Tempest Bradford hosts a podcast entitled The Write Gear… and invited me aboard to pontificate! Continue reading “Ricky Talks About… Fountain Pens!”
