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.Read more ›
We can only hope that ADV will offer a trade in offer on those releases already out to upgrade to the problem free collection.Read more ›
Anyways the tv series was one of my favorites and I still bust out the DVDs and watch them. I really miss the tv series. There are also a couple books and there is a comic book series running but nothing can replace the tv series in my opinion.
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!

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.Published on February 13, 2012 by Tone In DC
It just seemed to be a bit too convenient that there were two Crichtons who could go on the two separate adventures as Talyn and Moya were apart from each other. Read morePublished on May 28, 2008 by J. Marts
