Product Description

"Nerve": To save Aeryn from a near-fatal injury, Crichton and Chiana must infiltrate a secret Peacekeeper Gammak Base. Though they find an ally on the site, Crichton meets an adversary far more dangerous, more ruthlessly cruel than Crais could ever be--Scorpius, a terrifying Scarren-Sebacean hybrid. And when Scorpius discovers Crichton holds powerful information, he uses the tortuous Aurora Chair to rip the memories from his mind!

"The Hidden Memory": As the crew plans to rescue Crichton, Moya suddenly goes into labor. So while Chiana and Rygel remain aboard to deal with the delivery, Aeryn, Zhaan, and D'Argo wage an assault on the base. Unfortunately, Crichton's rescuers aren't the only visitors to the fortress. Crais has arrived as well! But is the greater danger the double-threat of Crais and Scorpius, or is it Moya's strange and terrifying progeny being born miles above?

Farscape is genre television at its most ambitious, inspired both by the cult appeal of Babylon 5 and the continuing success of the Star Trek franchise, but taking a visual and conceptual leap beyond those shows. Making extensive use of CGI, prosthetics, and state-of-the-art puppetry, courtesy of Jim Henson's Creature Shop, the Farscape concept has a freshness that makes it look and feel completely original. Leading toward the climax of the show's first season, "Nerve" and "The Hidden Memory" make for a bold two-parter in which Crichton is reunited with his Peacekeeper Tech girlfriend, Gilina, and emotions are strained as he infiltrates a Peacekeeper base to find a cure for Aeryn's wound. But the story's most important function is to introduce the dreaded Scorpius, who uses his Aurora Chair torture device to extract what he mistakenly believes is vital knowledge from Crichton. Scorpius, it soon becomes clear, is just not going to go away. --Mark Walker

It's really nice to be able to stay up-to-date with our favorite television shows as they are now while still being able to look back from time to time. Right now, as FARSCAPE enters its fourth season, I still enjoy going back and watching the old DVDs. Each one has something excellent to offer; volume 10 has a LOT of excellent stuff to offer.
The Sci-Fi channel's FARSCAPE series distinguished itself by taking a solid (if rather common) concept of an astronaut from the present thrown across the universe into a strange galaxy inhabited by even stranger lifeforms and drenching the entire series with character, creativity, and charm. Episodes "Nerve" and "The Hidden Memory" help to not only continue this tradition but mark a major turning point in the series for characters and plot-lines.
For those who haven't yet seen the previous episodes, the basic story is this: meet John Crichton. John has been having a bunch of pretty bad days since his flight of the NASA spacecraft Farscape 1 where he was sucked through a wormhole into an interstellar battle halfway across the universe. After a few unfortunate mishaps (whoops, didn't mean to crash into that ship and send it spiralling into that asteroid - no, siree), Crichton finds himself the target of the Peacekeepers (a collection of tyrants, closely physically resembling humans, seeking to extend their control over the galaxy) and one Peacekeeper Captain Crais, seeking vengeance for Crichton's accidental killing of his brother (the pilot whose ship spiralled into the asteroid). He takes up ship with a group of escaped convicts: the Worf-esque Luxan warrior D'Argo, the Delvian (and very blue - literally) anarchist priest Zhaan, the deposed Hynerian ruler Rygel, and the outcast Peacekeeper Aeryn.

This is the first two part episode of Farscape, and it is one packed with Farscape drama and action at its best. The show opens not long after the events of the previous episode, "A Bug's Life". It turns out that Aeryn Sun's injury is worse than first expected, and without a vital nerve transplant, she will die in a matter of days. To save her, John Crichton seeks a transplant at the only available source within reach-a Peacekeeper base. Impersonating a Peacekeeper, and with some distraction provided by Chiana, Crichton infiltrates the base to get the transplant. While there, he meets an old friend who gives him a hand in getting what he needs. But Crichton is discovered by the Peacekeepers, and comes face to face with a new enemy far more dangerous than any before encountered by Crichton and crew--Scorpius. Now, Crichton's comrades must struggle to save Aeryn from death, and Crichton from the hands of Scorpius.
All of this unfolds in a two part adventure with plenty of action, suspense, drama, and twists to keep you on the edge of your seat. With this two part adventure, Farscape's excellence reaches a new level.

Poor John Crichton. Up to now he's had to evade a crazed Peace Keeper Captain hellbent on revenge. What could happen next? How about a cold calculating alien villian trying to torture Crichton into divulging the secrets of how to make a wormhole.
A two part episode that introduces Scorpius, John Crichton's new antagonist, and Stark- a banek slave. Two of the best episodes of the first season. They set into motion much of the storyline for the 2nd season. The first ep starts with Aeryn dying from a wound she sustained in A BUG'S LIFE. John is forced to go down to a PK gammek base and try to procure the treatment to heal her. He's joined in this dangerous mission by the seductive Chiana. They run into a past aquaintance in a PK tech named Gilina. She obtains the needed cure for Officer Sun, but John is discovered shortly after. The 2nd part deals with the base's commander, Scorpius, suspecting that Crichton is a spy puts him in the "chair". The chair is a memory extraction device that rips the memories from your head and shows them on a viewer. In the interrogation, Scorpy discovers Crichton too is involved with wormholes.
The combination of the calm malevolence of Scorpius and the crazed almost manic cellmate of Crichton's, Stark, create a wonderful contrast of characters. A must have for the Scaper fans out there.

Format: DVD
Farscape was a mixed bag during the first season; the best episodes rank with anything produced by the Trek franchise or Babylon 5. What made Farscape unique is the quirky sense of humor at the core of every episode. It's the first series since Tom Baker's Dr. Who era to wink at the audience while serving and exciting premise or boots to the floor action episodes for dinner.
Both episodes feature Scorpi and Nerve in particular stands out during the first season. The premise is borrowed from an old Trek episode; Scorpi has a device that allows him to see inside the mind and pick apart the psyche of whomever is strapped into its chair. Unfortunately, Crichton becomes victim # 2 when Scorpi discovers that Crichton has wormhole technology buried in his brain by an alien race.
Never and The Hidden Memory are among the best two part episodes produced for the series. The writing is sharp and the dialog witty. I'd recommend either episode as a fine taste of the Farscape universe which has, sadly,gone on to rerun heaven.
