I cried all the way through Family Ties and I can't even explain why.

I also bought the second season of Farscape earlier today because I had a funny feeling I wouldn't be able to wait for Netflix. I was right.

I just wanted to tell you that Stephen Furst was in an episode of Scrubs, so naturally I thought of you. He was adorable as usual.

Also that I really, really, REALLY have to go to sleep.
Stephen Furst in Scrubs? Squee! And also: Damn it. I hate it when I miss things like that. Do you know where I could get a copy?
Kinda related to this: Last week I noticed - very much to my surprise - that Stephen Furst is in "The Day After"! He plays a college student, and I was glad that we didn't have to watch him die a painful death ;)
Ah, Family Ties. Excellent first season finale, that, but if the family spirit makes you cry, wait what future season finales will do to you.*g* This is definitely the Moya crowd at their most optimistic.
I think maybe it was the fundamental optimism that did it. I don't know. It was lots of little things- and it all started with the scene between Aeryn and Pilot. You know you've stumbled upon a good show when you find yourself identifying with and feeling for a non-humanoid character who never speaks to the rest directly (i.e., Moya, who certainly is a character in her own right).

I will post some more coherent thoughts about Farscape when I'm more conscious. But suffice it to say that I am definitely hooked now. I'm even jonesing for some Farscape iconage based on Family Ties...

She so is. As Talyn will be in the next season. Andraste, btw, wrote two excellent Talyn pov's, but you need to have watched the second season to get the first, and some third season eps to get the second.

Moya and Pilot are as real as the rest of the cast, aren't they?And watch out for the early second season episode The Way We Weren't, because that's where we find out more and wonderfully angsty stuff about the background of Pilot, Moya AND Aeryn.

Another thing: Family Ties is of course the episode where Crais sails off the shores of clear-cut villainhood on the ship of ambiguous characterdom, which was one of the best decisions the creative team made. Scorpius works far, far better as Crichton's nemesis. (And has far better reasons; he doesn't, as you'll see, want the wormhole technology because he's Evil (TM) but for a quite understandable and rational purpose.)Crais, otoh, as a wild card instead of a one note "You killed my brother, prepare to die!" antagonist allowed for some excellent storylines involving Talyn and Aeryn.
It's worth it. Not that I am biased in favor of this series, oh no. *g*
