eleanorjane: Chiana (call me pip)
I knew I missed a day. Although with my sleep patterns the way they perennially are, the concept of "day" is kind of academic at this point.

Day 06 - Favorite episode of your favorite TV show.

Given that we've already established that my favourite TV show is Farscape, that leaves me having to pick my favourite episode. Funnily enough, the episodes that first spring to mind are the ones that aren't my favourites - probably because that's a shorter list.

Okay, I can do this. *deep breath*

Farscape episodes. Well, I love Throne For A Loss, in which Crichton shows that he can get things done in spite of his genetic disadvantages - or, more likely, because of them. I love DNA Mad Scientist, where we start to see that these are real, flawed people - not noble heroes - and they will do some wrong shit when they think they're being nothing but reasonable. I love Durka Returns, when we meet Chiana for the first time, and Taking the Stone, when it's clear no-one really gets her.

...and I could go on, and on, and I don't need to because I've realised that there's one episode that stands above all the others for me: Die Me, Dichotomy. It is an absolute fucking masterpiece in the context of the rest of the season, and it's so beautifully heartbreaking. And what makes it, for me, is Aeryn; she's made herself so much more than what she was, and I fell in love with her the first time I saw it - through the tears - because she is so brave and strong and awesome.

You know, this whole meme could really be retitled, for me, Thirty Days of Elle Winding Up Talking About Farscape Every Day. I'm going to have to rewatch the series now. :)
