Editorial Reviews

Don’t get your shivvies in an uproar! It’s the fifth collection in the Starburst Edition of Farscape -- the middle of Season 2! "I’m just looking for a way home." Astronaut John Crichton (Ben Browder) is lost. Really, really lost. Shot through a wormhole during an experimental space mission, he’s in a distant part of the universe, far from everything and everyone he’s ever known. Yes, he’s made friends with a bizarre crew of alien ex-cons onboard the massive living ship called Moya. He’s even risked his life for them. But he’s made some powerful enemies, too. Especially Scorpius, an obsessed military leader – and sadistic horror – who wants a secret technology that’s hidden deep in Crichton’s subconscious. And nightmare of nightmares, Scorpius has implanted a neural clone of himself into Crichton’s brain to hunt down the information he seeks, even if Crichton’s sanity is destroyed in the process! An ordinary guy on an extraordinary journey, Crichton is doing his best… to survive. Home has never seemed so far away. Farscape is an adventure as broad and weird as the universe -- full of strange creatures, bizarre twists, irreverent humor, raucous action, passion, and romance! Produced in Australia with the incredible talents of Jim Henson’s Creature Shop, Farscape is the fantasy-scifi-drama-romance-comedy-adventure you will always remember!

5.0 out of 5 stars READ THIS!!!! IMPORTANT!!!! September 8, 2006

The negative reviews pertaining to quality issues are no longer valid. ADV has discontinued the 2 disc editions and now releases the Starburst editions as 4 disc sets - similar in setup to the box sets but including the extras from the previous Starburst edition. That said, be warned when purchasing these discs from a third party vendor through Amazon. The product details are the same so there is no reason to expect you'll get the 4 disc set instead of the 2 disc set. Even Amazon (see above) has an incorrect product assessment -- they call this a two disc set but ship the appropriate four disc set.

Although FARSCAPE had no bad seasons and no set in this series will be of anything less than completing enjoyable, this set contains what is arguably the ones where the show evolved into what it in fact was: the most innovative Sci-fi series in the history of television. In particular, in these episodes the story arc that would extend from the three "Look at the Princess" episodes to the final minutes of the miniseries would be in place. For it is in these episodes that John and Aeryn's romantic interest in each other, which had previously been latent, is made explicit and we begin getting the first concrete hints that something is not quite right with John's head, though we won't learn precisely what until late in the season. All we know for certain is that John has begun to see Scorpius even when he knows that he isn't there.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Farscape Starburst Edition - 2.2 August 4, 2006
Verified Purchase
I missed the original airing of the Farscape series and passed on the overpriced DVD's. (Why do the suits think they can rip off Sci-Fi fans?) Finally got the original 2 episodes per disk season 1 at a discount sale. Nice but they took up valuable space. I much prefer the Starburst editions. The extra's are really interesting. And I've been able to get these at discount prices as well :) If your a fan of this series then I recommend the Starburst editions.

4.0 out of 5 stars Farscape, Could It Be any MORE Addictive? August 16, 2006
I was exposed to Farscape by a very geeky friend of mine to whom I consider myself forever endebted. If you're thinking of buying this particular volume, chances are you're already familiar with the series if not a fan if not an absolute avid drooling lunatic for it. So, I need not drone on about the show itself.

So, the set. The ONLY thing I can think to complain about is the number of episodes. It has approximately the same number of episodes on it that the others do, so it's not disappointing in that regaurd, I just wish there was less disc-switching that needed to be done.

The renders seem fantastic. I've a relatively old DVD player and it had no problem reading and playing the disc (which I seem to recall reading another reviewer complain about in a previous Farscape set). Also, I must say that I'm not 100% thrilled with thier methodology for packaging the discs. Having to take Disc 1 out to get to Disc 2, and remove Disc 3 to get to Disc 4 is kind a pain in the butt, but a minor inconvenience when weighed against the sheer amount of entertainment the set contains.

The special features, as always, are intriguing and entertaining, and answer quite a few questions that avid fans may have.

On the whole, this is another great volume in a tremendous series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Farscape is the best August 20, 2005
Verified Purchase
Farscape is some of the best SciFi to hit any screen, large or small. I got to know Farscape when it came up as something I might like on Amazon while I was looking for the latest release of Stargate SG-1. I ordered the first two episodes, just to have a look, and I was hooked. Farscape is innovative, fast-paced, funny, sexy and thought provoking, among other things. I already own all of the episodes and the mini-series, "The Peacekeeper Wars". Now I'm collecting the Starburst releases and passing my old ones on to my sister, who is also hooked. The Starburst Collections are awesome. The extras are top-notch; such as the deleted scenes and "Cool Farscape Facts" with the added plus of coming from the perspective of the entire series run. I was thrilled with the inclusion of the original season two opening episode, "Re-Union" on the fourth Starburst edition. This one has the addition of never-before-seen "Director's Cut" scenes. My greatest hope for the series is that the Starburst Collections will continue on right through "The Peacekeeper Wars". I'm already looking forward to that one.
