Who's your lobster?
18 September 2015 | by lebedeff-27-786848See all my reviews

This episode is handed a whole arc-full of silly premises, but cooks up one of the finest 46 minutes of Farscape out there. It epitomizes science fiction: delighting fans with creative resolutions, dazzling casual watchers with beautiful visuals, and tickling us genre veterans' appreciation of heroic banter.

The tight writing is a key highlight, and it's directed toward actors who actually embrace their roles. In contrast to the woodenness exhibited in the last few episodes, this episode is refreshingly well-acted all around. The writers seem like they're letting the story breathe, and the actors seem like someone promised them ice cream if they acted like they gave a flying one.

The humor also feels more natural, sort of like in some better classic sci-fi movies -- this episode hosts great lines and moments which are iconic Farscape.

As for the visuals, this episode is excellent. The settings and camera direction are stunning. Down to the colors, the layout, many somebodies cared about this one.

My favorite Farscape to watch on a rainy Saturday afternoon.
