    Although the total # of episodes have been reduced, this is good news. Thanks!! Also, more focus on the kids. Cool.

    Finally saw the season finale, and I was impressed by the writing, performances, and coordinated action scenes. It was all-out "Fargin" War ("Johnny Dangerously"). Hated the reason and decision for the Maria/Saya fight and was sad that both of them decided that everything was no longer worth it. Kudos to the writers for living up to the season finale hype and hoopla. It was glorious. I look forward to Season 2.

    I never really considered Pilot as a Muppet. That may have been his initial designation, but I put him in the Animatronics classification. His movements required multiple personnel to manipulate and coordinate with Lani Tupu voicing. I'd actually like to see the inner workings of the contraption used to create Pilot. I'm not suggesting, in any way, that Pilot was any less of an important crew member than Rygel, just that I didn't consider him a Muppet. If I do continue with this year's "Farscape" rewatch (An annual tradition) I may actually break down and rewatch my most painful episode to watch during the entire run, "The Choice". That episode is so painful to watch, I've only seen it once or twice. It's a rough episode because, as Aeryn lamented, everything was perfect; she and Crichton achieved the perfect union. I've used my Avatar of John Crichton for years, and even my user name is a reflection of Farscape. I chose the user name Jacks-Son, in honor of John Crichton, son of Jack Crichton. Enjoy the re-watch everyone. Next rewatch, "Fringe". (Peter and Olivia were the closest to a perfect couple as John and Aeryn and slightly above Sheridan and Delenn, "Babylon 5") MissL, thanks for reminding me that Rygel farted Helium whenever he was afraid. I keep intending to give "The Expanse" a watch, I just can't get past Thomas Jane, one of the most boring actors to watch. One last thought, I was SO excited that Ben Browder was added to the cast of "Stargate SG-1" years ago but then they ruined it by bringing in Claudia Black and NOT putting her romantically with Cameron (Ben Browder's character), but Daniel Jackson instead (Ugh - didn't Daniel already have his fill of beautiful women on that show, did they have to add Vala Mal Doran to his list?)

    It's the same 'ole refrain: "It has Muppets!!!!" Yes, it has ONE important Muppet that you forget is a Muppet because Rygel is an egotistical braggart that isn't Muppet-like at all. Neither Bert nor Ernie woulds spit in your face or could pee explosive urine or steal your shoes while you lay dying and his feet never touch the damn ground, so why does he need shoes? Because! That's why.

    Clean up crew? Why bother with those small details. I'm surprised Will didn't tease Frankie for calling him Boo. I think she was shaken by that whole near kiss and distracted herself by having sex with tattoo. Of course, when Will mentioned her liaison, she grew obstinate and stormed off yelling about it's none of his business

    Well, YMMV. I don't have ANY fashion sense but I know what looks nice and what doesn't. (I'm a jeans & T-shirt guy who thinks that's appropriate wear for 99% of venues I go to) Go back and take a look at that dress. In fact, i think Electriboogaloo(?) or someone posted pictures upthread of Lauren Cohan holding a gun at the bad guy. You may not have noticed the dress because she was standing near a patch of sand. 🤓 Her dress had the look, texture, and probable feel of a burlap bag. Same color too!. That shit was nasty, and Frankie, either by her lack of enthusiasm for what she was forced into, or because she's sort of broad across the shoulders, had this whole slouch type of posture that made it look like she chose "Paper" over "Plastic" at the grocery store and decided to don that. The sneaks WERE dope, though. See, it's the little things that can add humor to a show without Standish's broad comedy routine. I may not like Jai in the group, I find him a little too stick-up-the...., but he does have a point about Standish's lack of any sort of professionalism. No tech guy, either of them, would have such a disheveled work space. Not only is it not practical, working with fine equipment; it's filthy. I did laugh when Jai held out his hand to Standish and said these nano-trackers are practically invisible to the naked eye and Standish said "You're right I can't see a thing" and Jai said, "That's because there's nothing there". Funny. How can anyone NOT laugh?

    See THAT'S the comedy I find funny. The little quips, the side-eyes, even grunts, at the perfect time, can be funny. My brother and I are arguing back and forth because he watches the show but hates that they're cracking jokes all the time. I told him he's just watching the wrong show, for him. He should watch "Lock Up" and don't bother watching escapism TV.

    Deadly Class

    I don't recall such a conversation and I wish I had, I would love to have seen El Diablo and his serial killer son's reaction. I don't know who could have told Gao, no one at the school, besides the Scoobies knew. Even nosy ass Shabnam couldn't say for sure and the only other possibilities are Viktor or Brandy, who I'm actually starting to like. (She's deceptively badass and smart and I can see Willie hitting that, other than being a Nazi, that girl has it going on.) I know El Diablo's other son was smacking his lips to get a chance to go after Maria. I hope he does try and gets a "Chico Shave". I started watching Ep: #10 but that shit was so whack it needs my full concentration, so, it gets a full watch tomorrow. Last I saw, Marcus was going to fucking town with that homemade Mace-Bat and Maria came up upon Saya about to get her head cut off and Maria said, "You fucked him, didn't you?" I cut the playback at that point because the next scenes would be so delicious it needs all my attention.

    His daughter. Seriously? I thought Frankie shot the father and then asked Will if he was happy that the bad guy got shot? Anyway, nice episode. It was fun all around. Lauren Cohan did an excellent job acting resistant and then slowly, albeit grudgingly, starting to thaw to Will. (Seriously, why do they still insist on keeping to this ridiculously ugly Hollywood kiss???) Foley is Foley, he's like Prince Charming (Josh Dallas) on OUAT & Manifest, very adept at portraying earnestness and sincerity. He really sold his hurt feelings at Frankie's denial of an actual connection and subsequent anger when he found out that Frankie slept with Tattoo. I say, "Yay!" to the snub at the end. Yeah, I know Frankie was trying her best to communicate with Will, just the way he wanted and he shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth but dammit, she hurt his feelings just when he was starting to trust again. It was like a kick in the teeth so so soon after the affair. As for Susan, I'm wondering if Susan's Faux-cheer at staying behind was just a small part of her disappointment of not participating in this mission. I know her staying behind served the purpose of integrating Ray into the show. His entry necessitated some smoothing over if he was going to continue to be part of the cast. I just kind of wonder if Susan was more miffed that Will shut her down when she was trying to smooth his hurt feelings. He apologized and she seemed to feel better that he did. All in all, quite a fun episode, including the early Nerve Gas heist/dance. I also look forward to this series registering their nth consecutive trope next week with the introduction of the new female triangle complication of CIA/FBI/MI-6. On a shallow note: Damn, Frankie looked like shit in that bridesmaid dress, and her deliberately dumpy posture made her look more drab. I laughed when Will told her so AND she got offended, Ha!!! I don't believe an actual bride would make her bridesmaids wear that crap. Liked the shoes though. Frankie needs to take lessons from Susan on how to look sexy, because Susan has that shit locked down. The other two are just there for the comedic ingredient to the mix, I don't pay to see them. My main interest is in the big 3.

    I still get the feeling that they've slept together. They have an easy familiarity, like old lovers.

    Damn, THAT'S all it took???!!! Gotta remember that, "Look 'em in the eye; act sheepish; use words like "I've never" or "I understand", maybe even an "You're special" and Voila! Like magic, love springs in the air. Oops, that magic makes Maria, out of nofuckingwhere, kiss Michael "Running Tab" Guerin. Ahh, life is good. Talk about whiplash!! Sarcasm aside (or was it?), I still had fun. I love me a good old fashioned alien mystery w/romance.

    Thanks Phoenics for clarifying that. I still don't understand why the writers are practically destroying all the relationships. Are they trying to force their coming out further? I guess Alex, Noah, & Maria need to get clued in soon, for this to work. Shapeshifter, I think it was the same episode that Isobel tried to influence Liz' mind to forget. Isobel tried, but broke down and cried on Michael's shoulder, when she realized that there was real love there "both ways" and that she had ruined any chance of happiness for her brother. Come to think of it, isn't that when Isobel's split personality started to manifest; when she overworked her powers or am i wrong again?

    Farscape

    @iRarelyWatchTV36, looking at it now. It's 4:3 upscaled, not stretched and the resolution is damn fine. I'm watching it straight through the Amazon app on my Smart TV. It's not passing through Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, or Roku. Although I may try through those to see if I can get resolution info but it looks pretty damn good. Too good, in fact, I get to see D'argo's Shitty Costume (1st season) all over again in crystal clarity. Damn, Moya looks beautiful. Oh oh, I'm in trouble. I think I might be falling into the Farscape Zone...again. Clicking on info, the following screen shows. Now it says HD 1080p but that's probably the resolution of my set? Shit, I don't know, but it looks damn good. I watched the same scenes through a Fire TV and an Apple TV, and the best picture, although it was great on both, was through Apple TV. (1080p SDR at 60Hz)

    No, you got it right. In that episode, Isobel broke down with guilt when she realized how much he was hurting. That doesn't tell us anything about how Liz feels for Max now. She couldn't go through with her attempt to make Liz forget what Max revealed about their true nature. I'm not even sure Liz CAN feel anything for him after learning about the mind control and Rosa's murder. It would take a prodigious amount of love to get past that.
