"Out of Their Minds" takes an old sci-fi chestnut (the main characters all switch bodies), and completely turns it on its head in typical "Farscape" fashion. This episode is fun, fun, fun in the same vein as "Crackers Don't Matter," (although not as dark) and "Through the Looking Glass" (although not quite as wack-a-do). A true classic.
"My Three Crichtons" takes another classic sci-fi cliche, in that John is split into three versions of himself. The twist, though, is that one is at the bottom of the evolutionary scale, a caveman early-man prototype, the second is the regular human him, and the third is a John Crichton of the future, further evolved than the average human, with a large skull, to hold his much-bigger brain. This episode, despite its jokey title, is a dark, involving hour.
And then the crown jewel of the set...The entire "Look at the Princess" trilogy, composed of Part 1, "A Kiss is But a Kiss," Part 2, "I Do, I Think," and Part 3, "The Maltese Crichton." This trilogy pushed the show in ways it had never been pushed before.Read more ›
The other two episodes also deserve accolades - both challenging acting tasks for the series' stars. Ben Browder gets a real workout playing three evolutionary versions of himself in "My Three Crichtons", which helps demonstrate to his alien companions that humans really *have* come a long way. It also carries a strong message about the redeeming qualities of humanity that manages to be poignant without being heavy-handed.
"Out of Their Minds" is a riot for those familiar with the show, and really showcases not only how talented each actor is in his or her own right, but also how well they know one another and their characters - because they all get a chance to play each other (or in some cases, play WITH each other - er, themselves - er, you just have to watch).
Fans of Farscape won't be able to live without this volume in the Season Two series. Those new to the show will miss some of the finer points of these episodes, but will be treated to a good two hours of beautifully executed plot in LATP that stands on its own without any other series backstory. In my opinion, this is the don't-miss Farscape DVD among those yet released.
Recently Sci-Fi channel cancelled this stellar show. If you like this show half as much as I you'll voice your displeasure with Sci-Fi & let UPN and Showtime know how much you'd like them to continue this wonderful little show.
Good T.V. is hard to come by, buy this DVD you'll be very pleased you did.
