Summary:

The crew is out of food and searches for provisions. Zhaan, in particular, seems on the edge of starvation and she is losing her sanity. Desperate for food, Chiana takes the crew back to her old stomping grounds-a dead animal. Actually, it is the carcass of a huge space faring animal, called a Budong, so large Moya could fit in its mouth. An entire colony of miners lives inside the dead beast and it is with them the crew's hopes ride.

Analysis:

Well, I'm at a loss for words regarding this episode. Frankly, HOTR is Farscape's most grotesque episode to date and I didn't enjoy watching it. Yet, I can't help but admire this episode for its edgy style, sometimes intriguing dialog, and fascinating set design. I'm going to watch it a few more times before I post a more detailed summary and analysis. I need to digest this one...sorry. :)

July 11, 2001 update: Sorry it has taken me so long to get back with you regarding this episode. Just loved HOTR so much that I've been compelled to watch it exactly 0 times since it premiered in the US over a year ago. It's one of the few Farscape tapes in my collection that is still in pristine condition. Oh, I have an idea! If you have something to say--positive or negative--about HOTR contact me and I'll post your article as a guest analysis.
