Finally, I can give this series 5 stars. As with many other people, the first 6 collections were very problematic, freezing, skipping, popping or just flat out not playing. While some die hard fans mark my reviews unhelpful as I report the disc quality and not the quality of the show! (I figure you know what you are buying! and would better like to know the quality of what you are getting.) The series is a solid 5 in my book, and has always been so, but not the first 6 collections due to the double sided, dual layer format that caused so many to be returned, as with other folks here I too had to return 4 of the 6 before I was able to get a collection that would play properly. WITH THIS COLLECTION ... ADV finally saw the light! They released the collection on single sided disc, and while I'm not happy with ADV as I asked if there was a problem with them long, long ago and they just acted as if it was the first time they heard anything. I had to contact them as I was having trouble getting a RMA AGIAN for a bad disc, by correcting the release and putting them on 4 disc instead of 2 they have all but admitted there was in fact a PROBLEM! Even though they would not admit it months ago. I even have an email from them stating there was no plan to release them on 4 disc! I guess they got as tired of complaints as buys got of returning them. The single sided collection is far better than the prior as you would think in quality, no skipping, no popping, no freezing, nothing but good solid Farscape fun and entertainment, without having to try and skip over bad spots or fiddle with to get it to play.
We can only hope that ADV will offer a trade in offer on those releases already out to upgrade to the problem free collection.

The Farscape episodes are excellent and deserve 5 stars.

The case however is still problematic. The Single sided disks are an improvement, but the little pieces of plastic that holds the DVDs break in transit and 2 DVDs ended rattling around in the case. Same problem with other Season 3 cases. Which is why in summary the collection only gets 4 stars.

I love farscape but i missed it the first time around. i happened to catch the complete four season series (88 hours)in two weeks when they had a marathon on the Sci-Fi channel leading up to the Peacekeeper Wars mini series. I started collecting the Starburst edition disks because lets face it, it's better to spend less than sixty dollars for a whole season than one hundred and twenty dollars for a whole season. However the first six starburst edition DVD collections had alot of problems. I personaly had to return four out of the six collections back to the store because they didn't play right. season 2 collection 3 ended my relationship with Best Buy because they wouldn't exchange it. I will be buying my copies from Amazon exclusivly from now on because i had no problems getting an exchange from Amazon. You know Amazon isn't going to stop carrying the disk three days later. The best part is that seasons 3 and 4 will come on four single sided disks instead of the cheaply made two sided disks. Im hoping this will end the problem i was having with the old disks.
I gave this product 4 stars out of 5. The Farscape series it'self is a 5 star product. I took one star away just because the package is wider so they don't look right on the shelf next to seasons 1 and 2. i also don't care for how the disks are held in the package. You have to take the top disk out to get to the second disk. They are kinda stacked on top of each other. It's a minor irritant at best. Im sure they are going to be easyer to take care of than those double sided disks at least.

Added after viewing disks: On the third season they got rid of the production notes that you saw on the previous disks. Instead they put some awfull Sci-fi network commercials for the shows. i rather enjoyed the production notes but the commercials don't do a thing for me. The quality of the actual disk is 100% better than the double sided disks.

of the poor quality of the DVD 18s, those notoriously horrid double sided pieces of crap. There have been tons of problems concerning damage to these double sided disks, specifically the Farscape Starburst Editions and the show American Gothic. The change was welcome, simply because I had received one of those screwed up disks, and I would have liked it if they had not been damaged. If your disk is damaged, return it or buff it. Unfortunately, when the 18s get damaged bad enough, they are useless, and they are damaged VERY easily.

Some of you, the smart ones, know that Aeryn is too cute and smart to die. But Farscape, while wild and weird, needs to follow some rules. So when somebody dies, somebody dies. Just not the one who was dead last season. The new character of Jool is smart, sexy and shows cleavage. Which is a sci-fi theme. It Is. Anyway, even with the extras, the time travel episode and the cleavage, this season seems to be slowing down and, yes, a tad bland. That is why I dropped a star. Still, four out of five isn't too bad. That's pretty good!

Farscape is tied with Red Dwarf and the Stargates as one of my favorite shows of all time. I love the starburst editions for their price and the considerably smaller shelf space compared to the previous release of Farscape on DVD. My one complaint is the cases are [...]. Most of the cases for the starburst collection have 1-3 disc hubs broken. I forget where but I eventually found the case manufacturer and was able to order repacements. The replacements were the exact size but the disc hubs had been greatly improved.
