Farscape is that elusive gem that sci-fi buffs often spend their entire lives pining for---a science fiction series that satisfies the intellect without neglecting the funnybone. Quite simply it is the best of both worlds, mixing heavy duty physics with sometimes smarmy (but never tasteless) humor that keeps you on your toes. Our hero (and sometimes villain) John Crichton tosses off pop cultural references that will ring bells right and left with those of us who grew up in the 80's, befuddling his alien shipmates in the process, and somehow it never gets old or loses its freshness. The other parties in this little space opera are outstanding characters, performed outstandingly by some of Australia's best character actors and voices, and you grow to love even the most annoying of them. When people die, you cry, and in season three you will cry hard and often. But you'll also laugh and look forward to the next episode before the credits are finished rolling, and by the time you get to season four, you'll feel exhausted and exhilarated all at once. The series is quite simply the best, and I have yet to find anything that even comes close for human (and alien) drama mixed with comedy. Sometimes maudlin, occasionally gruesome, often hilarious, and always heartwarming, in the sci-fi world (and pretty much elsewhere as well) you just can't do better than this.
I picked this up as a Channuka gift for my "Far"-gone fanatic sister. It was a delight to find a brand-new shrink-wrapped set. (She retaliates by getting Babylon 5 stuff for me!)
The set includes all the episodes of Season 3, scenes that were cut from the TV version, interviews with the actors and the author of "Farscape", character histories and more.
If you you've not seen Farscape then start with Season 1. Some of the stories here will not make sense if you don't know how the plot develops. (This set also contains a plot synopsis.)
This is an excellent series. I was very upset when I heard it was cancelled. This is about an astronaut from Earth that accidentally discovers a wormhole and is transports to another place in the universe. He is taken aboard an prison ship. This is not a disney story. The universe is a dark, dangerous, and very strange place. Somehow it forms friendship with this group of escaped prisoners. There are four seasons and a final movie. The fans protested the ending of the series and a movie was produced to end the series.
Why you bought it,because i was watching it on net flix and it was uploading really bad
- What I liked most about this box set was the stunning picture quality, because there was only 2 episodes on a dvd they didn't compress it as much as other box sets
- There was absolutely nothing that I didn't like about the series or the characters, these box sets are phenomenal,I am waiting to buy the blue ray release on Nov. 15 for 125.00
- Would I buy the product again?, oh yes, all these sellers sent better than described merchandise and these sets are awesome and the series was awesome, really cool characters, and it was more of an adult series, really cool,extremely dissapointed the series ended, make sure you buy the Peace Keeper Wars, it is the conclusion to the series, OMG it is awesome, even the wives will like this one!
I moved, in the past, to an area that didn't have the Sci-Fi channel. Believe it or not! I ended up missing Season 3. I'm an avid fan & collector, so this set is a Treasure! I LUV IT! Will be in the market for Season 4 soon.
