Product Description

Farscape Season 2 unfolds as a tapestry of histories and mysteries. Having survived Season 1’s deathtrap finale, John Crichton and the crew of the living space ship Moya attempt to evade the villainous Scorpius. And if the Peacekeepers weren’t enough trouble, Crichton and company soon cross paths with the ambitious, reptilian Scarran race.

The crew’s unstable camaraderie is ripped apart when they discover the part Aeryn played in the brutal fate of Moya’s first Pilot. Things spin even further out of control when Zhaan is framed for murder; Crichton proposes to a Princess; Moya’s child, the battleship Talyn, destroys a ship; and Crichton loses his identity, his mind and ultimately, his very head. The season comes to a climax when Ka D’Argo enlists his allies on a quest to buy his son out of slavery. To get the selling price, they must rob a heavily armed depository — but the simple plan soon falls disastrously apart.

Building upon the mind-boggling Season 1, Farscape Season 2 delivers even more ingenious stories, extraordinary new characters and dazzling special effects, from the artists at Jim Henson Productions.

The second season of Farscape expands upon and develops the characters introduced in the ambitious first season. John Crichton's new nemesis is the deadly Scorpius, replacing Crais, who has taken the living ship Moya's offspring on a voyage into the unknown. Moya's regular crew--Aeryn, Zhaan, Chiana, D'Argo and Rygel--remain as divided and suspicious of each other as ever, yet somehow manage to pull together at times of crisis. The writers continue to exploit the show's gift for surprising as well as emotionally convincing character development, while the CGI effects, prosthetics and state-of-the-art puppetry--courtesy of Jim Henson's Creature Shop--continue to make Farscape the most original-looking sci-fi show on TV. The witty scripts, peppered with post-modern pop culture references and movie in-jokes, are also a breath of fresh air. Despite some wildly erratic shifts in tone, this is exceptional TV science-fiction that continually pushes the accepted boundaries of the genre. --Mark Walker

Yes, without a doubt. Even though fans of Trek, Babylon 5, and SG-1 might disagree, TV Guide says its the "...Best Science-Fiction series on TV..." Too bad it's not still on. Do you like intrigue, romance, passion, betrayal, technology without the techno-babble, wonderful characters and villians, impeccable editing and set design, and a story line that takes you from the highest highs to the lowest lows? Let's just put it this way. If you haven't watched Farscape you are missing out.

Farscape season 2 continues the fine tradition set in the first season. After finishing the season one cliffhanger when nearly everyone was left for dead the show continues with some very good and some excellent episodes in season 2.
About the boxed set
The set contains all 22 season two episodes divided in 5 sets of DVD's containing 4 or 5 episodes each. Some DVD's contain bonus features but these are merely comments and brief promotional videos and are a bit disappointing.
The DVD's have a nice layout but a bit annoying is a wormhole sequence which is played at absurdly loud sound level everytime you select an episode.
The set is nicely packaged but the quality of the package remains questionable since it is made out of paper. I own the season 1 and 2 and for now the package is not damaged but we will see about that when the show gets in the hands of some of my friends.
About the show
The story is about a pilot named John Chricton which during an experimental flight gets sucked in the wormhole and ends up on the other end of the galaxy. There he stumbles in the middle of a prison break and ends up with the escaped criminals on a living ship called Moya.
In the second season we see further development in character relations between the crew. Some fight and tensions as no one gets along all that well. We see some romances develop and some deals get broken. Nobody is completely without flaws but somehow they all pull together in tough spots and get through them.
My favorite episodes in second season are "The way we weren't" where we learn a little bit about Aeryn's and pilot's past and "Won't get fooled again" where Crichton wakes up on earth again.

Farscape reallly took off in Season 2. It has everything: gut-plitting comedy ("Crackers Don't Matter" and "Out of Their Minds"), a grand Farscape-style fairy tale adventure ("Look at the Princess" Part I, II and III), an action-adventure heist caper ("Liars, Guns and Money" Part I, II and III), high drama ("The Way we Weren't", "My Three Crichtons") and just plain unclassifiable ("Won't Get Fooled Again"). Even the weaker episodes have a lot going for them and as Farscape fans know weaker is definitely a relative term.
Just be prepared to lose a lot of sleep because the cliff hangers are sadistically brutal! You will definitely find yourself saying, OK, just one more. The two three part stories are truly cinema quality and are worth the price of the box set alone.
One more cautionary note is if you are married and want to stay that way, hook your spouse if he/she isn't already. Ladies: if you husband thinks this is a "puppet show", just tell him there's lots of action and toilet humour. Guys: Tell your wife its a cross between Sex and the City and Titantic.

Could they be any slower releasing these box sets? Farscape is one of the best sci-fi series ever put to television, but you probably already know that since you are on this page. My only complaint is they are taking forever to release these sets. At the time of this post, B5 has already released season 3. Star Trek released the entire Next Generation series in less than a year, what could possibly take so long to release this set?

I love the second season. I think it has to be the best, because everything was at it's best. The acting, directing, the action, the romance, the speacial effects all became phenomenal. Here is my evaluation of each episode of Season 2.
Note: I am not like one of those Buffy the Vampire Slayer Fans giving my favorite show 5 star ratings for every second episode. The epsisodes here are truly fantastic. No offence Buffy fans but I find some of you to be easily impressed occasionally.
1. Mind the Baby-4/5
The first time I saw this episode I hated it. thoguht the plot moved too quickly and was vague at certain points (espeacially because it was supposed to be episode 2). I am sure others will feel this way, but after viewing this episode a few times I have found it to be solid entertainment.
2. Vitas Mortis-2/5
This episode has two incredible CGI sequences which bring it up to a two, but otherwise, I hate this episode. The mystical side of Farscape rarely appeals to me.
3. Taking the Stone-2/5
Another poor episode with mystical bits and annoying aliens.
4. Crackers Don't Matter-4/5
This one has a really poorly done alien, but also has some
hilarious quotes ("IT'S PUKE?!") as well as a great fire-fight between John and Aeryn. Very not bad.
5. The Way We Weren't-5/5
A great look into Peacekeeper life. I love the marching scene at the begining.
6. Picture if you Will-3/5
The return of an enemy. This episode has its weak bits but some very interesting parts as well.
7. Home on the Remains-3/5
This episode has some really gross parts (in a good way) but otherwise is just plain average.
8. Dream A Little Dream-3/5
This episode was supposed to be the premiere but instead it's told as a flash-back.
