This DVD set will bring you the first four episodes of Farscape's third season. In season's one and two, Farscape's first few episodes were a mixed bag of good to mediocre installments. That trend ends with the first four episodes of the third season. The following is a brief summary and review of each:
Season of Death-The season premiere sees Crichton left incapacitated, while the rest of the crew attempt to save him. That becomes difficult when a Scarren arrives on the scene looking for Crichton, while at the same time, Scorpius manipulates the situation behind the scenes. This episode also sees Crichton confront and win a victory of the neural clone in his head, and the return of a friend thought to be dead by the crew (though we the fans knew she couldn't be really dead). This is an action packed adventure episode with compelling emotional drama, and one of Farscape's best installments.
Suns and Lovers-D'Argo intends to ask Chiana to marry him, but finds out she has been sleeping with D'Argo's son, Jothee, sending D'Argo and his crewmates on an emotional roller coaster. In the meantime, Crichton and crew attempt to stop a religious fanatic from destroying a station full of people, and on the way, Aeryn and Crichton have a discussion about relieving some tensions. All in all, a bit of a soap opera like episode, but still an excellent episode.
Self Inflicted Wounds, Parts 1&2-This two part adventure sees Moya collide and become entangled with an alien ship that travels through wormholes. Crichton attempts to use the opportunity to learn about wormholes, but things get tense when a monster appears on the scene and Moya is sabotaged by an apparently invisible opponent. In order for the crew to escape, on the crew must sacrifice his or her life to save everyone else.

At the end of the second season of "Farscape" John Crichton (Ben Browder) was on an operating table with the top of his skull off as Scorpius (Wayne Pygram) has interrupted the surgery to remove the neural chip from his brain and Aeryn Sun (Claudia Black) was killed when she was trapped in her ejector chair that crashed into the freezing water on the planet below. Little did we know that the themes of death and seaparation were going to be so powerfully strong during the third season, the first four episodes of which are to be found on these two DVDs:
Episode 301, "Season of Death" (Written by Richard Manning, Aired March 16, 2001) has the good news that Scorpius' neural chip has finally been removed from Chrichton outweighed by the fact he can not speak, a "clone" of the personality of Scorpius remains in his mind, and Aeryn is dead awaiting a Peacekeeper's funeral. Although Moya's crew makes a series of touching farewells to Officer Sun, Zhaan (Virginia Hey) has an idea. On the one hand bringing back the leading lady of the series from the dead was a bit too easy, but on the other it is clear in retrospect that we are being set up for a series of much more permanent demises by the end of the season (Four Wormholes).
Episode 302, "Suns and Lovers" (Written by Justin Monjo, Aired March 23, 2001), as the title indicates, is a pun on the infamous D.H. Lawrence novel and on target because the lovers end up being Chiana (Gigi Edgley) and Jothee, son of D'Argo (Anthony Simcoe). The main plot has to do with Moya's crew heading to a Commerce Station to spend their spoils, but a violent storm of unnatural origin hits the station.

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.
