Tread Perilously — Farscape: Throne For A Loss

Tread Perilously’s Total Request Live 5 concludes with an episode of Farscape called “Throne for a Loss.”

When Rygel negotiates to haul cargo for the Tavleks, he ends up kidnapped by them. Crichton and the rest of the Moya crew are expected to pay up his ransom. Instead, Aeryn embarks on a rescue plan which evolves once Crichton wakes up from his Aeryn-induced stupor. Additional support also comes from D’Argo. Meanwhile, Zhaan tries to convince one of the Tavlek conscripts that he doesn’t need the narcotic delivered via his standard issue gauntlet and Rigel almost makes a friend of Jotheb, next in line to lead the Consortium of Trao. Will the techno-squid save the day?

Erik can’t help but draw lines between FarscapeĀ and Guardians of the Galaxy. But the lines go into the past and the future. Justin remembers a lot about Farscape for only watching it once all the way through. The series gets praise for good character hooks and a couple of really swell ideas. Justin enumerates the three classic intergalactic blunders. Gerd Shockley teases upcoming Alternative Factor guests. Spacing Guild Navigator Edric turns out to be popular. Erik learns the Peacekeepers are bad and The Book of Boba Fett chat continues.
