The next episode? Not so brilliant. That is not to say that it is not worth watching, however. "Picture If You Will," featuring the return of an old villain is disappointing not because it is boring (like "Vitas Mortis" and "Taking the Stone" from the first second season set), but because there just isn't that much to the story. On repeated viewings, a great deal of plotholes appear, and what, the first time, seemed like an okay episode, soon lessens greatly ("The Way We Weren't," in contrast, gets better each time, as one notices more and more details.). This episode is definitely not one to avoid, but isn't that great either, besides some cool special effects and M.C. Escher-esque set designs. It is very nice to see Zhaan kicking [rear], however, so it gets bonus points for that alone.
"Home on the Remains" would have been the grossest episode ever, except its title was taken in the third season's "Eat Me." With that said, it is a good episode. Better than "Picture If You Will," but galaxies behind "Way We Weren't" in quality. Still, a good episode with some excellent character development, very dark overtones, and even a "Return of the Jedi" reference. Great fun!Read more ›
The Way We Weren't: When Chiana finds a PK recording device it brings to light dark and terrible secrets from both Aeryn and Pilots past. The crew finds out that Pilot wasn't the original Pilot on Moya. Areyn's role in the death of the 1st pilot upsets the crew, but when Pilot finds out he wants her off of Moya forever!
A great backstory showing who Areyn was and what lengths she would go to get what she wanted. By the end of the episode you'll see how much of an evolution in her character has taken place since. The soundtrack and visual direction were amazing!
Picture If You Will: A picture obtained by Chiana is brought aboard Moya that appears to have the power to foretell the future. One by one, the crew's image appears on the painting depicting some horrible calamity befalling them. When they seem to be happening exactly as shown on the picture, Zaan has a pretty good idea who is behind these strange events and with the help of John & Areyn she just might have the strength to defeat this old, but powerful enemy from the past. A good solid episode worth seeing, though not their best either.
Home On The Remains: With the crew on Moya starving, in particular Zaan, they are forced to try to get supplies from a mining settlement on a dead Budong. A budong is a giant space creature several times larger than Moya, that when a dead one is found, it's mined for precious metals within it's ample carcass. Chiana apparently had once been with this mining operation, having made both friends and enemies during her stay.Read more ›
As always, the video and audio are superb. The features are lacking. The deleted scene are only present for the latter 2 episodes (so what about the first 2?). ADV informed me these scenes ARE the material aired in other countries (and in previous volumes in the series they were integrated into the shows-but now they have been seperated for season 2-my question is WHY?). Strangely, I for one believe I HAVE seen at least two of these scenes previously...
Like the last DVD, no more interviews and no more documentaries. Big disappointment. The second best feature (in my opinion) next to the deleted scenes, are the conceptual drawings. LOTS of those. Unfortunately the rest of the features are either text files or recycled video from the episodes on this DVD. The text features don't give any information you couldn't get from watching a couple episodes or spending 5 minutes on a Farscape fan site.
All in all, ADV is giving me the impression they are running out of resources for these DVD's. I for one hope will see some more interviews, commentaries and documentaries in the next installments.
