On "Farscape", Browder told Anna L Kaplan on www.fandom.org (July 3, 2000): "I'm in love with this show. I'm in love with doing the show. The creativity and play and freedom that you feel is fantastic. We've had a good run at it this year, definitely...In some sense, it follows the pattern of season one in many respects. There're a lot of sections that're purely episodic. There's more stuff threaded through. There's more of the arc-type stuff. There was always an arc, even if people never saw it, in regards to the characters and things like that... This season has a kind of escalation to it... We have a three-parter towards the end of the season that is just huge. It's just massive. You're not supposed to make television like this, because it kills you, and it almost does. The art department built these massive, massive sets. I've never seen anything like it on a TV scale. I've seen film sets that were almost as big, but never sets this big for a television program."
