Farscape Season 2 unfolds as a tapestry of histories and mysteries. Having survived Season 1’s deathtrap finale, John Crichton and the crew of the living space ship Moya attempt to evade the villainous Scorpius. And if the Peacekeepers weren’t enough trouble, Crichton and company soon cross paths with the ambitious, reptilian Scarran race.
The crew’s unstable camaraderie is ripped apart when they discover the part Aeryn played in the brutal fate of Moya’s first Pilot. Things spin even further out of control when Zhaan is framed for murder; Crichton proposes to a Princess; Moya’s child, the battleship Talyn, destroys a ship; and Crichton loses his identity, his mind and ultimately, his very head. The season comes to a climax when Ka D’Argo enlists his allies on a quest to buy his son out of slavery. To get the selling price, they must rob a heavily armed depository — but the simple plan soon falls disastrously apart.
Building upon the mind-boggling Season 1, Farscape Season 2 delivers even more ingenious stories, extraordinary new characters and dazzling special effects, from the artists at Jim Henson Productions.

The second season of Farscape
expands upon and develops the characters introduced in the ambitious first season. John Crichton's new nemesis is the deadly Scorpius, replacing Crais, who has taken the living ship Moya's offspring on a voyage into the unknown. Moya's regular crew--Aeryn, Zhaan, Chiana, D'Argo and Rygel--remain as divided and suspicious of each other as ever, yet somehow manage to pull together at times of crisis. The writers continue to exploit the show's gift for surprising as well as emotionally convincing character development, while the CGI effects, prosthetics and state-of-the-art puppetry--courtesy of Jim Henson's Creature Shop--continue to make Farscape
the most original-looking sci-fi show on TV. The witty scripts, peppered with post-modern pop culture references and movie in-jokes, are also a breath of fresh air. Despite some wildly erratic shifts in tone, this is exceptional TV science-fiction that continually pushes the accepted boundaries of the genre. --Mark Walker
