Product Description


This final sequence of Farscape episodes is as effective and powerful a climax as those of earlier seasons. The three-parter "We're So Screwed" starts with "Fetal Attraction," in which the crew of Moya attempt to rescue the pregnant Aeryn Sun from her Scarren captors and end up starting a dangerous epidemic on a space station. They get Aeryn back and lose Scorpius; in "Hot to Katratzi," the necessity of saving his worst enemy--who just knows too much to be left a captive--forces John Crichton to gate-crash the Sebacean-Scarren peace conference and bluff his way to success. Seemingly betrayed by Scorpius, John snatches victory in "La Bomba," striking another deadly blow against the Scarren empire. The title of the last episode, "Bad Timing," refers both to the show's cancellation--the cast and crew felt real bitterness towards the SciFi Channel over this--and to the cliffhanger ending; the crew of Moya have to prevent a Scarren ship finding its way through the wormhole to Earth. Farscape was perhaps the best-ever television space opera and certainly the most sexy, stylish, funny, and dramatic. It will be greatly missed. --Roz Kaveney

5.0 out of 5 stars The original run of "Farscape" comes to a too early end September 2, 2004
With "Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars" premiering on the Sci-Fi Channel on October 17th my timing was pretty good for finishing the fourth and final season of "Farscape" on DVD. After seeing John Crichton (Ben Browder) and Aeryn Sun (Claudia Black) in the trailer talking about "unfinished business," the 5th and final collection for Season 4 explains exactly what they are talking about (in fact, that clip comes from the series final first run episode).

But before the cliffhanger finale we have the three-part "We're So Screwed," which begins with Moya's crew attempting to rescue the pregnant Aeryn from the Scarrans and then escalates into something bigger and better. Episode 19, "Part 1: Fetal Attraction" (Written by David Peckinpah, Aired February 28, 2003) has Scorpius playing the front man in the rescue attempt at a Scarran Border Station when the ship holding Aeryn is docked. Rygel pretends to have the deadly disease Hynerian dermapholiica, forcing the station's medical officer to order a lockdown. But when the pretense is about to be broken, Utu-Noranti Pralatong makes the disease real, which is another threat to Aeryn and her fetus. So Jenek decides to transplant the fetus into Chiana, who is immune to the disease because she is a Nebari. This is not exactly the sort of complication we need this close to the end.

Episode 20, "Part 2: Hot to Katratzi" (Written by Carleton Eastlake, Aired March 7, 2003) has Moya's crew heading for the secret Scarran base because when they rescued Aeryn they ended up leaving Scorpius behind and he has all that wormhole information in his head. As if that were not enough of a problem when they get to Katratzi they find Commandant Grayza in the middle of peace negotiations with Staleek, the Scarran Emperor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Sci-Fi show ever cancelled prematurely July 13, 2004
Season 4 of Farscape has some of the best episodes of the entire 4 season run. One of the greatest SciFi shows of my time, and it was cancelled. The SciFi Channel cancelled Farscape because of its inability to grow outside its fanbase and that the show was becoming to expensive. I believe it was that latter that heralded the downfall of Farscape, because as Internet sites proclaim Farscapes fanbase has grow and continues to grow.
The episodes of this collection are the final 4 of the series. Like all the season before it, Farscape leaves you with a cliffhanger ending to end all.
With great dialogue, excellent actors, superb writting, and a take on outerspace that was unique to itself, its a wonder why the show was cancelled.
If you like Andromeda, or Star Trek, you should check out this show. You will love it.
And watch for the 4 part Farscape mini-series coming later this year. Hopefully that will not be the final ending, but the begining of a whole new chapter in Farscape.

5.0 out of 5 stars Farscape Season 1 - 4 dvd July 16, 2004
How to star my review. Well lets get AdvFilms release of the dvds out of the way. While there releases have been great the only reason they get five stars is because of the show. Advs dvds for farscape have been lacking, while you get the episodes uncut and with a little added footage the extras are laughable, but at least a little is better than none.
Season 1 - Well season 1 is the start of something great. We get character developement story lines that confound the imagination. The main storyline of season 1 is that Captain Crais is desperatly hunting the Moya crew to get at John. At the conclusion of the season Crais becomes that which he has been hunting, a fugitive from the new Peacekeeper villian Scorpious.
Season 2 - This season we get more into relationships between crew members. John & Aeryn as well as Dargo & Chiana. Scorpious is after John now for a diffrent reason than Crais was, he wants him for th wormhole tech in Johns head. At the end of the season is were John risks it all in order to save Aeryn.
Season 3 - Starts off great, but in my opinion the two Johns and splitting the crew between Moya and Talan made this season a little less perfect than the rest. Although it had some really great episodes this season.
Season 4 - The greatest season of farscape. This season John returns to earth, He has greater control of wormhole tech, Aeryn is pregnant, John & Aeryn get engadged to be wed. The only bad thing that came out of this season was its cancellation after filming of the season concluded.
Farscape Peacekeeper Wars - The savefarscape campain has worked. With the help of loyal fans there will be a continuing story. From what I have read this miniseries will tie up alot of the current loose ends but leave new loose ends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Farscape: One of the best! August 13, 2004
I will admit that I didn't watch this show until the sixth or seventh episode when both my brother and boyfriend insisted that I watch. As a die hard Babylon 5 fan, I thought nothing would engage me in the way B5 did. I was wrong. In the four years that Farscape ran, we saw these characters grow and change and become the crew of Moya, as well as a family. we cared about them and understood them. It was serialized, as was Babylon 5, which is why it was so good. Situations triggered future events, and gave it a sense of continuity. These last few episodes show how much they changed. At first all John wanted to do was go home, but made the ultimate sacrifice in the end to save his planet and both Peacekeepers and Scarrens.

If you want something that is just standalone episodes, go watch Outer Limits. Serialization works because it brings the viewer into the storyline, even the latest Star Trek has become more serialized.
