I think it’s about time I start blogging again. A lot’s been happening, so it’s not like I don’t have anything to write about. So I’m going to start posting at least once every weekday, even if it’s just a link or a video, to get back in the habit.
I’ve been re-watching Farscape and remembering how it’s the best TV show ever made, and I don’t say that lightly. I didn’t watch it when it was in its original run on the Sci-Fi channel, because the promos made it look kind of obnoxious. Muppets and people wearing way too much leather — it just didn’t seem like my kind of thing. I couldn’t have been more wrong. It’s a great show just on the surface, as a humorous space adventure, but it also goes so much deeper than that. One of these days I hope to recap the whole series and get into some of that. For now, here’s a scene I just watched, that wraps up the first season perfectly (this is before John went completely fahrbot). The speech starts at about 0:38. The whole scene is great, but this line struck me harder than it had before:
I’ve got a strange life here, Dad. It’s different….but it’s my own. I have people who rely on me, people I care about, people who mystify me, and people who have become allies, friends. And people who teach me patience, and people who teach me….other things.
People have been teaching me a lot lately.
Just watch the whole thing.
