picked up some Farscape rewatch after a semi-exhausting week. very slow going through an incredible episode, S02E04 "Crackers Don't Matter", where the crew is all drugged out & paranoid & at each others throats.
they've just been through a hellish season 1 cliffhanger that was tense, they're on the run with a far more competent & scary villian, and in this paranoid haze all their vulnerabilities & little petty grievances & mean perceptions of each other are fully coming to boil, are being fully shown. it's an amazing episode.
"'Crackers Don’t Matter' shatters the characters’ collective illusions about their statuses as civilized beings. Worse, it undoes all the hard work that went into building trusting, even loving relationships. The mindfrell of this episode isn’t so much what happens to the characters, but rather what they themselves do when their impulse control is removed."
