The second series of Farscape
expands upon and develops the characters introduced in the ambitious first series
. 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 SF show on TV. The witty scripts, peppered with postmodern 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
Farscape Season Two
unfolds as a tapestry of histories and mysteries. John Crichton and the crew of the living space ship Moya must now evade the villainous Scorpius. But that’s even harder than it seems, thanks to the insidious connection Scorpius has forged with Crichton. 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 tested when they discover the part a crew member played in the brutal fate of Moya’s first Pilot. Things spin even further out of control as the crew struggles to deal with the violent nature of Moya’s offspring – not to mention murders, royal weddings, identity crises, terrorists and slave traders.
Building upon the mind-boggling Season One, Farscape Season Two delivers even more ingenious stories, extraordinary new characters, razor-sharp dialogue and dazzling special effects.
• A fusion of live action, state-of-the-art puppetry, prosthetics and CGI, Farscape features mind-boggling alien life forms, dazzling special effects, edge-of-your-seat thrills, irreverent humour and unforgettable characters – all brought to life by the creative minds at Jim Henson’s Creative shop.
