Editorial Reviews

You bet your frangle! It’s the Starburst Edition of Farscape -- Season 3, Collection 3! Who is John Crichton? An astronaut. Good-looking, all-American, nice guy… lost somewhere in a crazy universe. A hero… who’s been probed, prodded, framed, frozen, and frelled by alien life forms more bizarre than anything in Captain Kirk’s wildest dreams. Who is John Crichton (Ben Browder)? Did we mention he’s in love with a beautiful ex-commando named Aeryn (Claudia Black)? Did we mention he’s been cloned? Two Crichtons… so identical even he can’t tell who’s the original. One Crichton gets the girl of his… er… their dreams. The other gets left behind. One Crichton dies. The other goes toe-to-toe against death itself, in the form of a sadistic military leader searching for a secret that will forever alter the balance of power in the universe. It’s hidden deep in Crichton’s impenetrable human subconscious, where even he can’t find it. Toss in a dysfunctional crew of quarreling alien ex-cons onboard a bio-mechanoid ship with a neurotic Pilot, and you’ve got a hint of the incredible Farscape universe. But only a hint. 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: Spoilers

Actually, the spoiler alert was fairly needless since the official editorial review provides some pretty major spoilers without a warning. But I believe in following protocol.

For me, this set is where all the great things that happened in the first three seasons of FARSCAPE paid off. I know of no more poignant, painful, and heartbreaking episodes in all of TV history. The closest I can come is perhaps the great final episode of Season Two of BUFFY where Buffy is forced to kill Angel after he regains his soul. In the 3.1 set we saw John Crichton cloned into a copy so perfect that not even the most stringent testing will reveal who is the original. The 3.2 set collecting the central set up episodes saw the consummation of the love between one of the two Johns and Aeryn and then the death of that John. Meanwhile, the other John has been anxiously awaiting the return of Aeryn. This final set deals with Aeryn's struggle to overcome her grief over the death of the one John and her hesitation to become involved with the other, for a host of powerful reasons. One sympathizes with both John and Aeryn, John because she really has fallen in love with him and expressed her love for him, but with a different copy of himself. Aeryn, on the other hand, has to contend with a situation that no other lover in history has had to contend, the simultaneous death and survivor of the man she loves.

In the final episodes of the 3.2 set, John was able to unlock the wormhole technology hidden in his head and is able via videotape to communicate to the other John the importance of this fact. The final episodes of the season deal with John's realization that he has to take the offensive to Scorpius. These are some great episodes filled with wonderful details.

Science fiction tv series often find it difficult to maintain a high level of quality in their first year, and while FARSCAPE has had some inconsistency in this regard, the ninth DVD of the first season of the series brings us two of the best episodes in the first season to this date.
The first episode on the DVD, "Through the Looking Glass," offers the vision of a Moya split into four different realities through the act of the Leviathan's attempting to Starburst without enough energy to make the trip successfully. Each of the realities has variances from the norm that make the situation more difficult. Crichton manages to find gateways or doorways between the realities, and attempts to bring the four Moyas back together again. But there is another force at work here, a force that is ripping gouges in the realities of the various Moyas, and perhaps this is the biggest threat of all...or not. This episode brings together some of the best characterisation and acting in the series so far, presenting as it does two marvellous "dinner on Moya" scenes - one at the beginning, one at the end - that truly frame the differences in the crew at the two different points of the story. It is an episode where Chiana truly begins to fit in on Moya (in her own way, of course), and where we get to see a different side of Rygel and the others as well.
The second episode is "A Bug's Life," the first season episode that leads into the story arc that wraps up the season which will change the lives of the characters forever. When Larraq and his fellow PK Commandos commandeer Moya to transport a single crate to the Peacekeeper Gammak base in the Uncharted Territories, Crichton and Aeryn masquerade as PKs, while D'Argo, Zhaan, and Rygel pretend to be prisoners once more.

Maybe it's just my poor timing, but I find these episodes to be ones that haven't often turned up on Scifi. They're both excellent. Without spoilers, the first one begins with the crew hilariously munching out and trashing each other while occasionally throwing food, interrupted by Moya splitting into dimensions. The dimensional shifts are handled differently than usual, which is quite interesting. In A Bug's Life, Crichton masquerades as a Peacekeeper captain in order to deal with a peacekeeper crew landing on Moya, but much else goes on, with Erin particularly good in this episode believably attracted to someone other than John. The "extra" focuses on Lani Tupu. It is terrible, like all the extras on the Farscape dvd's, but is redeemed by his talking of how he voices Pilot!

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.
