Farscape 2.3 – Taking the Stone

The main plot of this story isn’t just tonally wrong, it’s tonally blockheaded. Chiana gets word that her brother, who was in a clan / gang / cult, has died, and so she goes to join them, and John gets really self-righteous about talking her out of it, and eventually he does. Everybody’s annoying in this one.

The comedy B-plot is far more entertaining. Rygel decides to do some grave robbing since the clan hangs out on a cemetery planet, and brings a cursed item back on the ship. Probably couldn’t stretch that to fifty minutes, but we laughed twice during his story, which was the only satisfaction we got from any of it.

We’re going to skip the next episode; it seems incredibly unpleasant.
