Editorial Reviews

Well, frell me dead! It’s the Starburst Edition of Farscape -- Season 3, Collection 2! It’s a big, crazy universe out there. And American astronaut John Crichton (Ben Browder) is about as lost in it as he can be! The poor guy’s been through a lot. He’s been probed, prodded, framed, frozen, and frelled by alien life forms more bizarre than anything he could have imagined. Now, our long-suffering hero has been cloned against his will. And it’s double-trouble as two Crichtons go on separate adventures! Throw in an dysfunctional crew of quarreling alien ex-cons, a bio-mechanoid ship with a neurotic Pilot, a sadistic military leader with a secret agenda, a beautiful ex-commando who’s learning how to love, and it’s no wonder that… John Crichton is losing his mind! Praised by TV Guide as one of the "25 Top Cult Shows Ever," 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!

Warning! Multiple Major Spoilers!

I personally regard FARSCAPE as the finest Sci-fi television series ever (with the caveat that FIREFLY had the potential, at least, to at least match it). And I regard the third season of the series as the main evidence of its brilliance. The heart of Season Three is contained in this and the next set in the DVD releases, episodes that cover what happened after John Crichton was cloned. There is an old Chicago band called The Three Johns (one member is John Langford, front man of the punk band the Mekons). In my mind I think of Season Three being subtitled "The Two Johns." These episodes plot the separation of the two Johns and the complete flowering of the romance between Aeryn and the John with whom she is paired with on Talyn. One half of the episodes follow the group that ends up on Talyn and the other half those who remain on Moya. Most of the interest, of course, is with what happens with Aeryn and her John. On the one hand any fan will be delighted that John and Aeryn have finally managed to break down the barriers to their relationship, but on the other hand will feel the poignancy of how this is going to effect the John who is still on Moya. When I saw this the first time I couldn't conceive how they would resolve this almost impossible situation, though the death of the John with Aeryn in retrospect seems obvious.

The writers and producers took tremendous chances in the plot here. I can think of no parallel in storytelling in either film or TV for the developments in the romance between John and Aeryn in these episodes. Guy gets girl yet at the same time loses her to someone else, and it doesn't help that he has lost her to himself. It is an absolutely tragic romance, yet in ways that one has never seen before.

5.0 out of 5 stars Teh Farscape saga May 13, 2007
Love this series!! Am in the process of collecting ALL the episodes and have every intention to watch it over and over again until I am in my 90's and can no longer see! Then I will listen to it! I am continuing to follow Ben Browder and Claudia Black on SG-1 but the original Farscape crew is impossible to beat!

5.0 out of 5 stars ADVideo woke up and saw the problem ... finally!! September 14, 2006
Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the top all time Sci Fi series February 4, 2014
Verified Purchase
Literally bursting with action and adventure! Seems like John Crichton and crew mates are always getting themselves into jam which is why I personally refer to the series as Far-scrape! The only way I think the series could have been improved would be to add a few more humorous episodes like "Won't get fooled again!" which was fur-sure, fur-sure my favorite!

Great show. All of the Lexx fans out there will enjoy this set. Sci fi with an Australian sense of humor that holds up to more than one viewing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Split The Party! March 1, 2011
Verified Purchase
Good advice if playing Advanced Dungeons and Dragons. But in a TV show, where the characters are starting to get in each other's way - splitting the group into two smaller stories isn't a bad idea. Now, with each episode we can switch back and forth, one episode with Moya's crew, and one episode with Talyn's crew, and then back again. It is wonderful, because you know that one John will win Aeryn's heart. And if that is true, what will the other John do? Add the fact that PeaceKeepers are still on their tail, at the same time Scorpius is getting closer to finding out how wormhole technology is working, and you have time running out for John and his friends. And the Scarrans are also after the science of making wormholes too!
Lots of extras but frankly the story really hit's the mark with this set - drama, humor, action, and great interaction between the characters. Putting Rygel and Stark together on the same ship was brilliant!
