We watch so you don’t have to! A podcast in which we watch TV and then offer our judgments. From the people who bring you The Incomparable.
Zen and the Art of Disappearing Secondary Characters (Farscape S1E21-22)
After a little bit of a delay, we have way too much fun wrapping up season one of Farscape. First up, “Bone to Be Wild”, where we discuss where the heck Stark disappeared to after leaving with the crew last episode; how does gravity work on an asteroid; how do Leviathans have their inorganic parts installed; and the fall of Commander Crais and the rise of Scorpius as the big bad for the series. Then we cover the season one finale, “Family Ties”. Where we discuss where the heck one of the guest stars of the last episode disappeared to...
Fetch the Comfy Chair! (Farscape S1E19-20)
Farscape delivers its first two-part episode and it does not disappoint! In the first part, “Nerve”, Aeryn’s still suffering from the wound she received in the last episode. And the only cure just happens to be on the secret Peacekeeper base nearby. Crichton and Chiana go there to get it and wind up meeting an old friend, a potential new friend and a new enemy. The Peacekeeper Scorpius captures Crichton and subjects him to the Aurora Chair, a device that rather painfully extracts your memories. We leave Crichton trapped in the comfy chair as we end on our first cliffhanger…...
One Mippippippi, Two Mippippippi (Farscape S1E17-18)
Season One is getting closer and closer to being over. In our first episode, “Through the Looking Glass”, Crichton does a lot of running around, through four different Moyas in multiple dimensions due to Moya getting stuck in Starburst. And apparently they are not alone as something really wants them to leave. On top of that, each dimension has a different negative effect on the crew. Can they overcome these strange environments and the lurking presence and get back to normal space? And what’s with all the food at dinner? Both times! Finally, we review “A Bug’s Life”. No, not...
Head Games (Farscape S1E15-16)
Eric and Jason cover two really great episodes. First up, “Durka Returns”, where — you guessed it — the Peacekeeper Durka who imprisoned and tortured Rygel for 130 years returns seemingly from the dead. But now he’s a kinder, gentler Durka courtesy of the Nebari and their “mental cleansing”. Or is he? Let’s see how Rygel reacts to this. The Nebari also have a prisoner, Chiana, who doesn’t wish to be cleansed and wants asylum on Moya. Will the crew let her stay? Finally we review “A Human Reaction”. Crichton finds a wormhole back to Earth! But after being gone...
Doctor Crichton, I Presume? (Farscape S1E13-14)
Eric and Jason continue their rewatch of every episode of Farscape. This means that sometimes you watch some that are good and sometimes some that are not so good. First up, the mostly not good “The Flax”. Where Aeryn and John finally reveal their true feelings for one another (the good) and the rest of the crew do things we don’t really care about (the not-so-good). We wrap it up with “Jeremiah Crichton”. We didn’t dislike it as much as the cast and crew apparently did. It’s a mostly good episode where Crichton goes native and where Rygel finally appears...
Evil Blue Man Group (Farscape S1E11-12)
In “Till the Blood Runs Clear”, Crichton finally manages to recreate a wormhole, but it isn’t stable. Crichton and Aeryn meet a new friend who can repair his ship — for a steep price, while D’Argo meets some not so friendly, and not so bright, bounty hunters. Finally, “Rhapsody in Blue”, where the crew are summoned to a planet with some other Delvian priests like Zhaan. We learn some of Zhaan’s darkest secrets and what some of her people will try to do to throw off Peacekeeper rule. And our crew has to struggle with what’s real… and what’s not....
Super Timely Breakdowns of Your Fav Nerdy Shows
Love the fast posting after new episodes air live. It makes up for my coworkers who can't seem to watch the latest Game of Thrones on Sunday night!
TeeVee talk done exceptionally well
I love all of the podcasts on the Incomparable network and especially love this podcast that takes deep dives into shows like Flash, The Expanse and Jessica Jones.
A must listen with great panelists!

👎🏽 snarky nerds talk
The show is a bunch of geeks talking over each other, just wanting to hear themselves talk. Full of snarky comments they think are witty very little actually talking about the show they watched
