Vagrant Queen: No Clue
June 16, 2020 2:20 PM - Season 1, Episode 8 - Subscribe

Adrift in space, the team find themselves in the middle of a very strange murder mystery.

It's a bottle episode, and all you need to know about the previous events is that the team fell apart, came back together, is planning to go attack the big bad, and are waylaid by the intergalactic...parking police.

I don't know if anyone else finished the series, but I feel that this episode was directly marketed to me and my high school friends. The series is generally hit or miss, but going into this episode unspoiled was worth the entire season for me.

I also love the different facial prosthetics for all the agents. Varied, but tailored to each of the characters!

I have had the last three episodes of the season sitting unwatched in my Tivo since broadcast, just hadn't been in the mood for the show, but seeing this thread shamed me into watching episode 8.

I was unspoiled for the joke of this episode -- when "Life Could Be A Dream" started playing, I was like, "wait, are they doing what I think they're doing?" And, yep, they were. Well played, you silly, silly show.

Mad mixed feelings about this show. The space ships look nothing like the Space Shuttle or derivative of Trek/Star Wars, same with the non-humans, although clearly influence by traditional racial stereotyping often in a good way. The stories are kinda intentionally dumb. The silly bullet-time fight scenes are fun, again sometimes. There's a good camaraderie/anti-camaraderie feel that's cool. Here's the problem with the short run series, a bunch of elements could really gel into a marvelous show, somewhere around the 15-20'th episode, it's TV, it needs some time to simmer and get really good.

It has the high concept and cheesiness of Farscape.
