Product Description

Flung through a cosmic wormhole, American astronaut John Crichton finds himself fighting for his life in the middle of an alien prison break, inside a Leviathan a living space ship on the far side of the galaxy. Hunted by the relentless Crais, a commander of the galactic enforcers known as Peacekeepers, Crichton joins forces with the alien convicts hulking warrior Ka D’Argo; blue-skinned Priestess Z’haan; diminutive Dominar Rigel XVI; the giant symbiote Pilot and the irreversibly contaminated Peacekeeper Aeryn Sun. Each desperately seeks a way home, but first, they have to find a way to trust one another. Daring escapes and selfless acts of courage forge a measure of loyalty, friendship and even love.

The first season’s breakneck action heats up with the introduction of the coquettish thief Chiana and the sinister Scorpius with his dreaded Aurora Chair. Arrival and departure, birth and death, rescue and betrayal, all lead up to a season finale cliffhanger that is, literally and figuratively, breathtaking.

This groundbreaking first season of FARSCAPE presents all 22 groundbreaking in spectacular Blu-ray for the ultimate sound and picture experience.

Farscape is arguably the best SF ever produced for television. It takes a fairly common storyline of a group of travelers thrown together and being pursued by individual of near obsessive (and evil) qualities. This formula has gone bad before in several genres, western, SF, road movies etc. Here, an contemporary American astronaut is sucked through a wormhole into another side of the galaxy where he is immediately caught up in a "prison break" in space. What makes Farscape so successful is a mixture of qualities.

First the casting is excellent. Filmed in Australia, most of the characters (except the lead, John Crighton's) are from there giving it an "off" feel to American ears which contributes to it's alieness. Each of the character's is part colorful stereotype, has weaknesses and is extremely individual. The chemistry is fantastic, especially after the first two or three shows in the series. Especially notworthy is the chemistry between the love interests played by Claudia Black and Ben Browder (John Crighton).
Another plus is the writing. Non-stop action and story telling is the hallmark of this series. Little time is spent creating mood or atmosphere (that is done by the characters and background), everything advances the plot line. Additionally, most episodes are connected in that previous storylines are built upon and create a chronology of events for the later stories.
Farscape space is inhabited by aliens who pass gas, burp, have intimate relations, love, hate, get hungry and can be fairly dirty in their habits. Add to this the great cultural references made by Crighton, the viewer gets the feeling that this is a bit like what space would really be like. A far cry from the antiseptic cleanliness and "wonder" of the Star Trek franchise.

I've collected a lot of DVD's, some good, some bad, but there is no better set than Farscape. No matter what you crave, be it action, romance, drama, comedy, special FX, you will find it with FS. This is no ordinary series, the storylines, characters, acting & cinematagraphy rival that of movies like Star Wars, Star Trek & such. I don't think I've ever connected or gotten attached to characters as much as these. The acters are little known but they shouldn't be. Their skills rival the best that Hollywood has.
As you've probably read, Farscape is due to be cancelled which is to me just ridiculous being one of the most popular shows out there. However, it's rumored that if their ratings go up before the end of season 4 they may not cancel it.
Season one introduces you to the various characters, good and bad,and revolves alot around the main character, astronaut John Crichton. Most of the time you feel lost as he does trying to cope with new surroundings & a new way of life(which is very good acting by Ben Browder).
Season two evolves the other characters and their relationships towards each other.
Season three is loaded to the max with drama.
Season four is only halfway through but so far so good.
Each DVD is loaded with extras:Character back stories, acter biographies, behind the scenes, deleted scenes, interviews, artwork, specialFX, Photo galleries,& even alien language and meanings. You definitly get your money's worth.
Save Farscape!!!

Farscape is doing for TV, what the original Star Wars did for movies back in 1977. Only it has an advantage over the movie, it is not limited to the 3 hour time constraint movies have. Believe me, Farscape uses every second for plot development and adding a richness to the characters rarely seen in both movies and TV.
Like Star Wars, Farscape combines humor, action, & drama with state of the art F/X and creatures (two of which are regular characters). The characterizations are so strong you will forget that Zhann is blue, D'Argo has tentacles, & Rygel is a puppet. Farscape's tends to leave you with a feeling that you just peaked into the characters' lives, as opposed to have just watched a scripted TV show.
While watching this box set, you will notice there is something right about Farscape. Over the course of the season, the characters grow from distrustful individuals to a functional team/family of sorts. Don't get me wrong, everyone on board the living ship has their own agenda, and one betrays the group at the beginning of the last episode "Family Ties." Season 1 slowly builds momentum then kicks into overdrive with episode 18 "A Bug's Life." The last five episodes will be difficult not to watch in one sitting. Whatever the creative forces behind Farscape tried to do, they definitely accomplished it!
If you never have seen Farscape and are hesitant by the price of this box set, I suggest getting the Best of Season 1 set (type B000067IVT in the search box) first. It contains 6 amazing episodes which are a great introduction to the series...you can always lend it out to friends later. Once you've experienced these episodes, you'll need the rest of the season & can order this box set then.

Farscape is the most imaginative, creative, and awe-inspiring program I have ever watched. With the use of only a handful of episodes, I have been able to get anyone hooked on this fantastic program. The creatures, costumes, sets, and locales featured in the show are examples of how film-quality production can be done on the small screen.
Farscape is the best show on television! It is the best thing that the Sci-Fi Channel has, has ever had, and probably ever will have! Farscape is better then the new Star Trek, "Enterprise," and the last two Star Wars films, combined. For some reason though, (they claim ratings and cost, but it's been the #1 show for them for four years, and advertisers love it), Sci-Fi Channel has just cancelled this wondrous program.
To all Farscape fans: We must support this program, and help bring back the show. You can go to savefarscape.com to find out what you can do, and make sure to support the show by buying these DVD's, the video game, t-shirts, posters, etc., to show your appreciation for the series, and to show Sci-Fi that Farscape is their greatest asset, and that it should remain on their programming schedule for years to come!
