Definitely one of the more humorous of episodes: lots of jokes and pranks between the three protagonists; while I also quite liked the secondary story between Zhaan and the boy: that kind of maternal link of mother telling her son off for being a naughty boy, but the boy not really listening and wanting to do his own cool things instead.A fun episode with lots of humor even in the dramatic moments. The subtext of drug addiction, while not part of the "A" story was pretty obvious. But the "B" story wasn't really about drugs but more about choice, a running theme in Farscape. The Tavloid (I like that name better) boy was presented with a choice and like somtimes in real life he didn't make the "right" choice. Instead he chose the "easy" way. You could really see Zhaan's disappointment in his decision. It was also great to see D'Argo, Aeryn and John's different reactions to the gauntlet. Even though it was a stimulant it had a unique effect on each of them. D'Argo's rage and need to be in control, Aeryn's desire to go in guns blazing and John's euphoria at a new experience were all amped up. And we get to see another major character's weakness, D'Argo's blood.
