Jeremiah Crichton in ten pictures.

I'd say this was arguably the worst episode of the series, but I don't know who would argue it isn't. Maybe people who really, really, REALLY hate DALD.

The Flax in ten pictures.

I love this episode.

Staanz is my favorite one shot character of the season. I adore her. Someday I’ll write a story where she and Chiana meet and have a crazy adventure and drive D’Argo nuts.

I think John & Aeryn might kiss or something too? Yes, no, maybe? I have this in my head:

but I might be confused :p

Seriously though, I really enjoy them in this episode, particularly the discussion about the afterlife, and Aeryn's enthusiasm.

I cheated. There are only ten pictures as numbered, but I used fourteen caps.

I couldn't stop myself; I think it's this awful bug that almost goes away only to attack again with a vengeance. Someone call a Diagnosian.

#7 isn't all that 'wow', but it's one of my favorite early John moments. Watching Homesick John helped Homesick Me a hell of a lot when I moved overseas, and when he gets all teary and clutch-y, even knowing she isn't real, I just want to cuddle him.

Til the Blood Runs Clear in ten pictures.

I had 20 pictures (mostly of Aeryn...) in my "final" yes folder this time...I am terrified of how difficult this is going to be once Chi shows up LOL

I purposefully did not use the cap of the men shaking hands because while D'Argo physically returns the gesture here, I feel the mental component isn't there until the end of Revenging Angel.

They’ve Got A Secret in ten pictures.

I loved the set I did for DNAMS, so of course I hate this one. This is a rarely watched episode for me, but unlike TGIFA, making this picspam did not make me want to change that. Usually I have way too many pictures to choose from; this time I struggled to find ten compelling images. The plot may be decent (and it's certainly a pivotal episode, with Talyn's conception, and our first knowledge of Jothee and Lo'Laan) but visually I find it incredibly boring. Farscape did a lot of bottle episodes, but usually Moya is still beautiful, the lighting and shot composition are good, the characters look interesting...I don't know what was going on here.

But I've learned that people have extremely varied taste when it comes to graphics, so maybe someone will like it :-)

A note on how I do these: I load the episode into VideoStudio and scroll through it several times. Sometimes I will have specific scenes in mind before I begin, but I cap anything that catches my eye. Then I sort through the caps and try to find images that are both visually striking and which hopefully convey something meaningful about the plot or character. Often a cap I thought would be perfect turns out horrible once edited and resized, and "action" caps (such as D'Argo falling into space in this episode) are usually too blurry and/or dark to work with. Or a scene that was vital to the episode seems meaningless when reduced to a single frame.

Once I've edited all the workable caps I weed through them, placing them in "yes" and "no" folders until there are only 10 in "yes". And then I share them with you =D

DNA Mad Scientist in ten pictures.

While PK Tech Girl was the first episode I enjoyed, and TOBM was the first episode where I said, "Oh, I love that bit!", this episode made me realize I was in it til the end.

I know many of you love how bright the images in these picspams are. With "That Old Black Magic" I began with light and made them darker as they went along to reflect the nature of the episode, while this set is dark from beginning to end.

The brightness will be back, but I thought this was a good opportunity to play with mood.

That Old Black Magic in ten pictures.

It's getting harder and harder to only choose ten caps, but I must be strong and steadfast! #3 was going to be a bonus this time, but that is a dangerous road to go down, especially this early in the game.

PK Tech Girl in ten pictures.

This was the first episode of Farscape that I loved, as well as the episode that made me love the main characters. I could write an essay but I'm exhausted and should save essays for possible rewatches anyway ;-)

Thank God It’s Friday, Again in ten pictures.

This is an episode I rarely rewatch so I was very surprised when I wound up with 18 images and didn’t want to part with any of them. Culling was difficult and I’m not sure if I made the right choices.

It’s also a much more smiley episode than I remember… John & Aeryn make the best faces.

Back and Back and Back to the Future in ten pictures.

I enjoy this episode much more during rewatches than I did the first time around.

Throne for a Loss in ten pictures.

I thought going through these early episodes would strengthen my current John/Aeryn leanings, but instead it’s reminding me of how I kind of sort of used to ship Aeryn/D’Argo…I thought they had a lively chemistry and more intriguing story possibilities at this point in the series. I liked John better as a character and a man, but I so wanted to see Aeryn & D’Argo hook up before she fell for John. The whole "I hate you but I get you because we're both kick-ass warriors stuck on a ship of fools" thing is hot and her connecting first with a man who is more mentally, rather than physically, similar appeals to me. *hides from flames and exploding heads*

Exodus From Genesis in ten pictures.

The first shot is my favorite moment of the episode. The last shot is probably everyone else's ;)

I, E.T. in ten pictures. This is my least favorite episode of the series so choosing images that spoke to me was a bit of a struggle.  I am glad it's the second episode. Over and done! Onward and upward!

The lack of Rygel should be rectified soon. My favorite moments for him in these first two episodes are when he spits in John's face and bites a hunk out of Aeryn's arm. Neither turned out particularly well when I tried to capture it with a single shot. Rygel is a man of action!

Premiere in ten pictures.  Why only ten?  Because I'm going to do this for every episode and 880 pictures is my personal total picspam limit.

These are more my impressions of the episode, the ten images that struck me the most, than "this time on Farscape". I hope you enjoy them.
