Finally the Farscape marathon is over, having just seen The Peacekeeper Wars
. Oh, to see that opening battle sequence on the big screen would be worth the price of admission alone.
As a conclusion to the series, PKW is mostly successful. However, there were some problems too not all of which seemed due to the brutally truncated season. Though I can understand why they did it, the simplified prosthetic make up for Scorpious and the War Minister was quite jarring, as was the very prominent reuse of two previous actors in prominent roles. Given the radical nature of Hynerian biology, the whole thing with Rygel just beggars belief - there was no plot reason for it at all.
D'Argo's death was heartwrenching even though I knew it was coming. Jool's cameo and subsequent demise were a good illustration of quick senseless death. Turning the normally sensible and pragmatic Sikozu into a Scarran spy really pissed me off on a level of Serenity's turning River into the Taminator, though Scorpy's revenge on her was amusing.
