Product Description

The third season of FARSCAPE explores the wonders, possibilities and dangers of the wormhole phenomenon more completely than ever before. Through more ominous, adult-themed tales, the series also peeks into the darker corners in the minds of Moya’s crew.

In particular, FARSCAPE SEASON THREE shows the dichotomy of John Crichton: from his volatile, passionate bond with Aeryn to his ability to at once unite and divide the loyalties of the crew. As crew members embark on personal missions to deal with individual agendas, the stories showcase smaller ensembles, allowing each character and relationship more room to grow. Before the company reunites, lovers and friends are betrayed and family ties are ripped asunder. Old enemies become allies and dear friends are lost forever.

Some critics have called Season Three the year FARSCAPE matured into a “grown up show.” Others see it as the year its creators’ brilliance was thrown into overdrive. In any case, now’s your chance to enjoy the continuing adventures of the Moya s crew in Blu-ray for unsurpassed video and audio quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Farscape comes into its prime October 23, 2004
Format:DVD
The third season of "Farscape" captures the show in its prime; the various story arcs developed here are better than anything that came before. The writing and character development is, for the most part, top notch. Season three features the unusual episode "Revenging Angel" where the bulk of the episode occurs in a Looney Tunes Road Runner/Wile E. Coyote type of cartoon with Crichton and D'Argo. "Infinite Possibilities" another two parter features one of the Ancients appearing in the form of John's dad. They unlock the secrets of wormhole technology in Crichton's mind to prevent the Scarrans from escaping with a dangerous new weapon.

The stand out episodes in my mind that signify this development is the two part ""Into the Lion's Den" from the conclusion of the season. Crichton agrees in this episode to help Scorpious achieve his dream of wormhole technology. Scorpious plans on using it to develop a weapon of mass destruction that can be used against the Scarions. In return, Crichton and the crew of Moya will receive diplomatic immunity. Things sour very quickly when Crichton realizes what will become of this new found weapon.

Picture quality is pretty sharp throughout most of the discs. To answer one question--why isn't this in widescreen? Because it was shot in fullscreen format. It is, however, a high definition transfer. The usual extras are included such as commentary tracks, deleted scenes,interviews with the various actors and behind-the-scenes glimpses of props, the creation of various villains, etc. The only thing missing here is any extra discs or information. ADV essentially took the fans twice here--buying the individual titles cost more than this boxed set does. If you purchased this expecting extras not on those discs, you'd be disappointed.

A terrific season of "Farscape" only surpassed by season four and the conclusion chapter "Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars".

5.0 out of 5 stars As great a season as any in the history of television September 16, 2004
Format:DVD
Warning: Spoilers galore! Free roaming discussion of the season story arcs!

First, before proceeding to heap excessive amounts of praise on this extraordinary season, I have to express my extreme anger at the ongoing refusal of the owner's of the series copyright to make it available to the public at a reasonable or even affordable price. I do not own this set on DVD and do not plan on doing so as long as they continue pricing it as such absurd levels. I'll struggle along with my tapes for now. I'm not angry only because their price means I can't afford it; I am angry because the price keeps a host of would-be fans from discovering this remarkable series. There is simply no excuse for the way they have gone about the DVD releases for FARSCAPE. I thoroughly encourage anyone who loves Sci-fi or quality TV to explore this series-I promise you will be delighted with it-but I also encourage everyone to avoid purchasing this set at this price. As consumers we need to let the companies know that they have a responsibility to make their products available at a reasonable price.

Season One of FARSCAPE saw the debut of a new and superb Sci-Fi series. Season Two saw a marvelous development of all of the main characters, increasingly complex relationships between them, and the expansion of the many story arcs. But absolutely nothing in either Season One or Season Two prepared viewers for how extraordinary the show would become in Season Three. This season is unquestionably one of the greatest seasons any series has enjoyed in the history of television, and is in my opinion the greatest season any Sci-fi show has ever enjoyed. What makes the season so spectacular is that they take a huge number of extraordinary risks, and manage to pull all of them off.

5.0 out of 5 stars Farscape achieves perfection February 28, 2005
Format:DVD
Since it's inception, the Sci-Fi Channel's Farscape was one of the most original and mind bending shows to hit the genre in years, and in it's third season, Farscape achieved perfection. With a much darker tone, and the major arc that would shape the series until it's end taking shape, it is clear that this is sci-fi TV at it's best. Crichton (Ben Browder) returns to his old self, while Aeryn's (Claudia Black) life hangs in the balance. Scorpius' (Wayne Pygram) obsession with wormhole technology is revealed in it's entirity, while Dargo (Anthony Simcoe) and Chiana's (Gigi Edgely) relationship takes a turn for the worst when Chiana begins an affair with Dargo's son Jothee. The third season of Farscape also the sacrifice of a character who has been here since the beginning, as well as the tragic losses of a few others while introducing new heroes and villains; culminating in a clone of Crichton and Aeryn consumating their relationship with tragic results. Like the above Amazon review says, this is when Farscape really becomes a more mature show, as we witness our favorite characters go to hell and back, with one heck of a cliffhanger ending. It's brilliant, original, and mind boggingly different. Farscape was, and still is, what sci-fi was meant to be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Season! July 1, 2004
By John
Format:DVD
Season three was easily my favorite season, right in front of the fourth. So many things made me fall in love with the way the writing crew handled everything going on with the characters. The "Two John's" idea was probably the coolest thing the series did up to that point, and how it was eventually solved was another great episode.
The final four episodes of the season were probably my favorites, simply because the writers and actors put in everything they had, and even Guy Gross (the series composer) went the extra length to implement some awesome music. While the cliffhanger at the end on the season is my least favorite of the four (it seemed like last-minute writing) the season was 99% great. It was sad to see Lani Tupu leave the show on sreen; I always loved his character.
I strongly recommend the set to any fan of the show, because it showcases everything great about Farscape. Hopefully ADV releases the fourth season sometime early next year.
(Wouldn't it be great if they released it before the mini-series in October? Wishful thinking....)

I love Scifi, this show has great graphics, a bunch of strange aliens, typical story line, and a bunch of people on the ship with huge egos. A lot of yelling.

Same as Seasons 1 & 2, a five star show that is successful in maintaining great character and story lines. Sad to see Virginia Hey depart for health reasons.
