I always have trouble getting past the scene where he's walking with Jack.  Knowing what lies ahead of him, so much heartache, I want to yell, "Don't go!!!"  But then he would never meet Aeryn.  :lovies:

I love the walk and talk with Jack.  "I can't be your kind of hero."

"No you can't be. But each man gets the chance to be his own kind of hero. Your time'll come and when it does - watch out. Chances are, it'll be the last thing you ever expected. "

Boy was his Dad right on that one.

Ok my nitpick moment.  When John is approaching maximum velocity in 18 seconds and DK tells him to "Hold a moment".  Really???  Hold on a moment?  Not a veer to the left or right or up or down - hold.   :rolleyes:

Poor innocent John has so much sadness and sorrow ahead of him. Crazy years/cycles ahead of him.

So true.  That look of wonder when he is on Moya and then his realization that he is on another planet.

He was in awe that he was on another planet and yet terrified at the same time.

"I'm on another planet''    :o   

He gets a similar look on his face when he sees Aeryn's prowler after says his module is ''cutting edge technology''    :D

I think John says and feels alot of things that we would feel being in the same situtation and why I think we can relate to ''Boy, was Spielberg ever wrong''   :wide-eyed:

Okay, from a controller's stand point ... Sometimes you say 'standby' to an aircraft having an emergency.  You need them to know you're processing information.  You're working on it.  They're going to keep doing whatever they need to do (veer, etc), but they know to be ready for a change. 

My techno-nitpick is Jack's headset.  The cord is all screwed up.  You're telling me a NASA astronaut, who by the nature of his job has spent eons wearing a headset, cannot get it on correctly. It drives me insane.  I want reach into the TV and correct it.  :rotfl:

I love the scene when John asks for paper everyone looks at him like he's nuts, and he just starts to write on the floor.

The slingshot theory maneuver is a cool CGI shot.

For me it's the scene with DK - you know, where he talks about “that feeling you have the night before something really big's about to happen in your life?”  I just love that scene – I soooo want to tell him that he has no idea what’s in store for him!!

Of course, I love the scene with Jack too – just love how John’s face looks when his Dad is giving the “your own kind of hero” speech.  We don't get to see the softer facial expressions for very long...
