As I write this, Farscape is well into its 4th season. I have known about the existance of Farscape from its beginnings. However I never bothered to watch the show because it looked so weird. Knowing that "muppets" (I tease as the show is produced by Jim Henson Entertainment) played two of the characters didn't help. But with everything else in reruns and SciFi showing new episodes, I thought, "What the heck." So I watched an episode and was surprised at how quickly I was absorbed into the show despite knowing almost nothing about it. Five episodes later I can say I was hooked. Since then I've worked on watching all of the old episodes and buying the VHS tapes.
This is the 3rd box set of Farscape's first season. Three tapes come in this box-set and each tape contains 2 epidsodes. These are shown in order.
Tape 1: "The Flax" & "Jeremiah Crichton";
Tape 2: "Durka Returns" & "A Human Reaction" ;
Tape 3: "Through the Looking Glass" & "A Bug's Life".
What marks this set of tapes is the entrance of the character Chiana who would go on to become a regular cast memeber ("Durka Returns"). Also, the characters continue to grow and continuity begins to play out quite well.
