5.0 out of 5 stars Season 3 Farscape - a good and unique programe at its peak, 8 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Farscape Season 3 [DVD] (DVD)
Season 3 of Farscape, while not perfect, is a good and unique programe at its peak.

I particularly like the episode in which Rygel meets a female of his species and the stunning near finale in which this normally limited budget show becomes reminiscent of Star Wars.

There is also an episode written by Ben Browder, who plays the human astronaut John Crichton.

I knew from reviews before I watched this that some people did not like the new character Jool, nor the fact that she effectively replaced the tall, gentle, blue Zhaan, so I did not look forward to this development.

However, to my surprise I found I not only liked Jool (her character may seem a bit over the top but that suits Farscape and livens things up) but I missed Zhaan less than I expected.

The character had to be written out because the actress playing her, Virginia Hey, was becoming ill from the blue body paint. However, by this third Season the writers had perhaps already explored most of the dramatic potential of a `spiritual' character given to moralising and meditating, and her scenes are becoming less interesting.

A less prominent but regular new character Stark, who seems to be meant to be like Zhaan in some ways (without being blue), I do not personally find particularly interesting, but that is a minor problem.

Overall, if you liked Season 1 or 2, definitely recommended
