EBook Description

Again, I find myself wishing I had half stars! I'd give this a 3. Farscape Forever! Sex, Drugs and Killer Muppets PDF EBook5 easily.

Like all of BenBella anthologies, this contains a bunch of really smart essays about a really smart show, deconstructing different bits of it and doing great analysis of major themes in FARSCAPE. I love FARSCAPE. I'm not nearly so well versed in it as some, but when I finished my 2nd full watch through late last year, I decided it was time to pull this anthology off the shelf and read it (possibly again- PDF I'm honestly not sure if I'd read this one before; download; I purchased it at San Diego Comic Con in 2006, when I went on a bit of a BenBella Buying Binge- I know I'd read Amy Berner's brilliant essay on Crais previously, but not sure about the rest) while the show was still fresh in my mind. That definitely helped, as some of these essays get into some nitty-gritty details. Others take broad sweeps, and still others (particularly the last one) basically just say "this is the plot of x, and here is a metaphor for your enjoyment!"

While some of the essays in here are definitely 5 star worthy, others (like the last one) really drag it down. Many, while very smart, are lacking something that made FARSCAPE really unique- FUN. Whatever else was going on in FARSCAPE, the plot, dialogue, and characters made it a fun show. Even when you're getting ready to sob over a character death, something amusing or witty is about to happen. Some of these essays lost that thrill.

That said, if you're a fan of the show, and a fan of analytical writing about things you love, definitely give this a shot. It's worth your time! Like this book? Read online this: Broadway Musicals Show by Show 1891-1916, Farscape.
