The first three seasons on Bluray are still rendered in full screen, and look terrible on Bluray. Things look blurred and hazy sometimes instead of the nice crisp sharpness we tend to expect from Bluray.

This set is something that should be passed on in favor of the dvd version. You really don't gain anything over the standard dvd with this set.

Seasons 1-3 were filmed in FULL SCREEN .. And not WIDESCREEN. I agree though .. why buy a product that even the best reviews tell us that the quality is only marginally better than the most recent DVD release. When they find the original negatives .. then I'll purchase this on BluRay.

Sadly the show was shot with cameras that where not future proof. This is the best the show will ever look.

Is it true the blu-ray lacks some of the commentaries?

My question as well. What is missing, if anything from the DVD's, Starburst Collections, and the Blu-ray?

Some other reviews I read seemed to say that all the commentaries were included. Whether they were mistaken, or just found them all. I am unsure. But they did specifically mention them.

i have the dvd and the blu ray set. they have exactly the same extras. all the commentaries and extra that are on the dvd are also on the blu ray. they lost the orginal 35mm so they had to use the pal set but it still i well worth buying if you are a farscape fan at all. it is diffently better than dvd

That's...incredibly disappointing.

Since they used the PAL set, does that mean we can also expect a PAL frame rate and resolution on our NTSC blu ray? The extra resolution might be nice, but it would be far too strange for me to switch from the frame rate of NTSC (24fps) to PAL (25fps). I've heard some people say they don't notice, but I can't help but notice the difference. I have a hard enough time watching a movie in PAL format, let alone an entire series.

I've been wanting to know this as well and no one can give me a freakin' answer.

PAL is horrible. It's sped up and really unnatural.

I've gotten the impression the 35mm. wasn't lost but instead they don't want to foot the bill for a restoration job with the negatives.
