5.0 out of 5 stars A great set with the best episodes of Season One October 17, 2005
Verified Purchase
Like many fans of FARSCAPE, I've only now started turning in my old recordings of the show for DVDs now that we are finally getting acceptably priced copies of the show. Although there have been other TV series that have appeared in overpriced editions-THE X-FILES springs to mind-FARSCAPE was the only one in its original edition that could be said to be prohibitively so. I'm not sure about other fans, but there was simply no way that I was able or willing to pay for a set that listed for well over a hundred dollars. One could make some complaints about the new Starburst edition-for instance, I'm still not clear on why they have to dribble these out two discs at a time, instead of releasing an entire season at once-but two things one cannot carp about: the cost and the number of extras. As to the former, I've been about to find each disc in the Starburst so far from various resellers listed on Amazon for no more than $16 apiece. As to the latter, each of the three sets making up each season is stuffed with a variety of special features. Some of the special features feel a bit like filler, but a number are substantive. In this set we get video profiles of Crais (Lani John Tupu, who also provides the voice for Pilot and therefore the only dual role performer in the series) and the two end-of-the-season newcomers, Chiana and Scorpius. The importance of the arrival of the last two can't be overemphasized, since after their debuts the show takes on the shape it holds pretty much until the end.

Although I love every season of FARSCAPE, the series completely matured, I believe, in this final third of the first season, with the addition of Chiana and Scorpius to the cast. Both of those characters changed the chemistry of the show dramatically and took it in entirely new directions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now on Single Sided disks July 21, 2006
After many complaints, ADV has chosen to re-release all of Starburst Seasons 1 and 2 on SINGLE SIDED disks. The positive effects that come from this change are many:

1. DVD quality is No Longer low. Disks play well, no glitches, no freezes, etc.

2. The titles of the episodes are marked clearly on each disk. No need to squint and rotate the DVD as you try to read some tiny font.

3. No need to flip the disk over when you want to watch other episodes. This is mostly beneficial to the people who own DVD players that can hold multiple disks at once.

4. Disk artwork :-D

There are then, certain faults that result from the change as well, all dealing with packaging quality:

--> Disks are stored in such a way that 2 are attached to each side of the DVD case. This means that in order to get to the disk at the bottom, you first have to remove the one at the top. If this isn't annoying enough, it turns out that all of the DVD buttons that hold the top disks don't work very well. Pushing the button doesn't pop the disks out as there are other plastic pieces that hold it in place. You have to push those with your fingers in order to get a disk out, and that can get really painful. If you're not careful, you might very well break a DVD in half.

My personal solution was to go and get my own DVD cases that worked properly. Having to find multi-disk cases with identical dimensions as that of the ADV ones shouldn't be that difficult. Also try to find ones that have clippings for literature, if you want to keep one in your DVD case. This Starburst release comes with a separate page listing disk content/episode synopsis, but there's no where to adequately store it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great series & now more affordable. March 2, 2005
Not ony are the Starburst edition disc more for your money. Being double sided discs they take up less room one the shelf. This is good when you're poor like me and live in a small space.

Plus, we finally have gotten to the Chiana episodes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great show.... March 9, 2008
Verified Purchase
I love Farscape, so any review I do about them that has less than five stars hurts me. But I have to say, the double sided DVDs sometimes seem to freeze or skip. Not alot or I would have demanded a replacement, not that there are any, but double sided DVDs are just not the best way to get a show out to the public, even if it somehow makes them cheaper.
On the other hand there were a lot more extras in the Starburst edition than the other DVDs and the other seasons are available to get NEW, not used, so I am looking forward to the other seasons. Too bad the first season is so hard to get and costs so much. More people would become Fans and spend more money on the DVDs.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is real frelling REALity t.v. September 16, 2005
By Anne
I started watching this series by buying the first DVD of the first season Starburst collection and the next day, I went back and bought the rest of the series up to Seasons 2, Collection 2. This is the best, smartest, most realistic, funny, snarky, sexy humanistic drama--sci-fi or other--that I've ever watched.

Unlike other shows, sci-fi or other, where no matter what happens to the characters, they stay the same, in Farscape, if you get hit, it hurts and keeps hurting. Even in the first season (and especially in these episodes on this disk), dramatic character changes occur, big scary villians are super scary, and huge upsets happen. Farscape thrusts you into the story, yanks you back out, and then laughs when you don't get it. But it's real, it's good, and you come back for more.

This collection was wonderful like the rest of the new Starburst collection. The sound quality is amazing. The room actually shook when Moya Starburst!

This DVD contains so many extras. Tibits about the actors, inspirations, and choices made for each episode. Commentaries by both the actors and directors that are insightful, interesting, and hilarious.

The commentaries by far is what sold me after the pure brillance of this series. Claudia Black and Ben Browder are quite amusing together, commenting on how young they look, how often Ben got beat up, and generally salivating over the directors and other actors.

The double sided DVDs are the only slightly depressing thing. Mostly because I'm lazy and don't like having to get up to flip the DVD over, but it does make for easy storage and in the long run, it's probably better.
