In the episodes contained in this volume, Farscape's fourth season finally kicks into gear and does some of the most surprising things a television show has ever done. The first three episodes are all Farscape classics, which take our expectations and jump up and down on them. "Unrealized Realities" takes John Crichton (Ben Browder) through a wormhole to be interrogated by a creature who regards the Ancients (who put the knowledge of wormhole technology in his brain) as annoying bumblers and who tells him a lot about time and about alternate universes. This gives the cast a chance to play each other again--Claudia Black's performance as Chiana is particularly disorientating. In "Kansas" John finds himself finally back on Earth, during his own adolescence, with the task of ensuring that his father does not die in the Challenger explosion and alter his personal history. The visit to his long-missed home continues in "Terra Firma," when the crew of Moya have to cope with Bush's America and John discovers the hard way--politics, family, old girlfriends, alien assassins--that you cannot go home again. Lastly in the moderately weaker "Twice Shy," Chiana (Gigi Edgeley) and the others learn that no good deed goes unpunished, as a slave they rescue turns out to be one of the more deadly individual menaces they have ever faced. --Roz Kaveney

Even the "ship in a bottle" episode "Twice Shy" is pretty good.

This episode really brings the whole wormhole arc running through the series to a full explanation, and is an important predecessor to the next episode.

For all those whom enjoy to dream, this is the TV series to start to watch or continue to watch.

Farscape Season 4 got off to an incredibly rocky start with mediocre episodes like "Crichton Kicks" and "What Was Lost" Parts 1 and 2. With the exceptions of "Promises" and "I Shrink, Therefore I Am", the rest of Season 4 up to this point was less than satisfying. But with the episodes on this DVD edition, Season 4 finally gets interesting, and delivers some of the most intriguing, intellectually stimulating, and emotionally charged episodes of Farscape ever.
"Unrealized Reality" is a hard episode to wrap one's brain around, especially since Farscape does not normally go in for much techno-babble like other science fiction shows. But there is a firm purpose behind it. The wormhole alien Crichton communicates with is trying to show the dangers of wormholes and how they can travel to not just different places in space, but different realities. Altering those realities can have drastic consequences. This episode really brings the whole wormhole arc running through the series to a full explanation, and is an important predecessor to the next episode.
"Kansas" sees Crichton and company pop out of a wormhole over Earth, but the year is 1985. Warned by the wormhole alien that his mear presence in that time might change things, Crichton and his friends travel down to Earth to find out if things have been changed. To his horror, Crichton finds that his Father is now set to be aboard the ill-fated shuttle Challenger, and must change things so he doesn't go. The dramatic essence of this episode focuses on Crichton, with his attempt to change things back to how they should be, along with his confrontation with his former self and his late-Mother.

These episodes finally bring a pseudo conclusion to John's quest to return home, only to have all hell break loose again. This is drama at its best, and the scifi doesn't hurt at all. Be sure to catch the 4 hour miniseries (Farscape: Peacekeeper Wars) which wraps up the series on the Sci-Fi channel in the fall of 2004!

If your tired of Star Wrek you really should look at this Series. It is funny, smart, touching and full of action!! This is the only reason I watched the Sci Fi Network, it was a travesty what they did in canceling it, but with the NEW Mini Series coming this FALL you really need to watch Season 1 thru 4. I cant say enough how much I loved the fast paced stories and action of Farscape as well as the interplay of the crew of Moya and the growth of John and Aeryn's love. Its got it all if your looking for something good to watch this is it. For more info check out [...]

After a good half season, things really take off in this collection of episodes from the show's fourth season. The first episode, "Unrealized Reality", starts it all off with our hero John Crichton getting taught about the true danger involved with his knowledge of wormholes, along with a rather shocking conclusion. One great kick of this episode (especially for the hard-core fans)is the cast's appearances as different crew members throughout the episode. The next two episodes, "Kansas" and "Terra Firma" are as good, if not among the show's very best. Even the "ship in a bottle" episode "Twice Shy" is pretty good. For a show that was about to be cancelled, you wouldn't be able to say it was on account of quality. Highly recommended.

I've been watching Farscape since it began and it's one of the best secrets on TV!This DVD collection answers some of the questions and resolves some of the issues in true Farscape fashion. In "Unrealized Realities", Critchon learns how dangerous his wormhole travelling can be, as well as ends up back at Earth. The situation escalates in "Kansas" where Critchon and the crew must deal with the ramifications of his wormhole travel. "Terra Firma" is probably the best of the 4. It has elements of previous episodes "A Human Reaction" and "Dog with 2 Bones". Finally on Earth, Critchon has to reconcile his former life with the life he has now and realizes the old saying is true: you can never go home again.
Tensions between Aeryn Soon and Critchon are resolved in the mercurial "Twice Shy" as we find out the truth behind Critchon's actions and it's outcome.
At the end of the 4th season, it was disappointing that we may never see the resolution to many subplots that have been developing for 3 years. It's one of the few shows that can't actually be judged in any category, it's so good. Even better that the loose ends are rumored to be taken care of in the 4 hour miniseries Farscape: Peacekeeper War.
But in my opinion, it needs another season or two to make sure all the questions are answered. Buy it, watch it, love it.

On "Farscape: Season 4, Collection 3" we get to a point in the series where the show could have jumped the shark. After all, in the very first episode Commander John Crichton, out testing his new acceleration theory, is flung through a wormhole into a galaxy that is really far, far away, and for three-and-a-half seasons while dealing with Crais, Scorpius, and all the other problems (not to mention his crewmates on Moya) Crichton has been trying to find his way home. Well, on this DVD, we get to the episodes where he finds himself back home. Fortunately, the results are what fans of the series would hope for and, as we have come to expect, the proverbial much more.

Episode 411, "Unrealized Realities" (Written by David Kemper, Aired August 23, 2002) sets the stage by having Crichton sucked through a wormhole where he gets interrogated by a being who has a connection to the Ancients. On the one hand we have semi-deep philosophical discussions about the nature of time and alternative realities, while on the other this is another episode where the "Farscape" cast get to play each other. These fit together because they are teaching Crichton the rules by which the wormholes operate, and this makes many things possible. So this episode not only stands on its own but at the end Crichton is floating above Earth.

Episode 412, "Kansas" (Written by Justin Monjo, Air Date January 10, 2003) starts with Moya joining Crichton above Earth. The good news is Crichton is home, but the bad news is that he is fifteen years in the past and his father is about to commander the space shuttle Challenger on its ill-fated final voyage. The solution to this is for the aliens to hide out in an abandoned house while they try to fix the past.
