Just a brilliant series, i was dissapointed when they cancelled Farscape but now i have the boxset and for 60 pounds i think that is a bargin. The set comes with all 4 seasons, the peacekeeper wars and an extra DVD with stand alone extras. Again just brilliant.

  Farscape is the best example of episodic sci-fi out there!

The main character of Farscape is John Crichton who is an American astronaut. Crichton has a theory that a manned spacecraft could overcome atmospheric friction and exponentially increase its speed, using only a planet's natural gravitational pull. When he sets out to prove his theory he is sucked into a wormhole and ends up on the otherside of the universe. Crichton gets tractor beamed onto Moya which is a very large living ship and is holding escaped alien convicts which are all different species. This is where things become very interesting and exciting at the same time as Crichton and his new alien friends are being hunted down by a race of people known as Peacekeepers. One of the clever and sometimes funny things about Farscape is that Crichton is the only human from earth this side of the universe so that makes him the alien. The special effects in Farscape are Hollywood movie standard and all the dvds are in 5.1 surround sound. There is 15 hours worth of bonus features to do with the making of Farscape etc which is fascinating. If you are a massive fan of Star Wars and Star Trek like myself then you will love Farscape as it is one of if not the best sci-fi shows of all time.

  Epic and Visionary

| | See all robie1982's reviews (1)

Farscape is imo the best sci fi show there has been to date. There are many great shows without a doubt but where this show stands apart, what makes it special. The epic multi part episodes, the knowing pop references, breadth of characters and growth of those same characters over 80+ episodes ! It's a show that demanded attention, more than many gave it. Needs to be watched from episode 1 to the finale, But I promise you, U will laugh and you will cry. Sometimes...both at the same time. Bargin price for the amount of telly your getting.

No other title to describe this fantastic series , it will take you to so many different planets meet tons of species and with a great cast you cant go wrong. If you've never seen this before you owe it to yourself to watch it, I just wish it was still going on.

  Great series, faulty discs

| | See all Faemaster's reviews (1)

I was really happy to finally being able to buy this series on DVD.

However, multiple discs in my collection make an ugly rattling noise when played, as if the discs are completely out of balance. I tried multiple players to the same result. Even in the laptops where discs are locked on the axis they keep vibrating.

Anybody else have the same issue or is it just bad luck? I'm thinking of returning the box because the noise is really irritating, taking away the enjoyment of the DVDs.

I agree with tempest this is a fantastic series, with amazing visual effects for its time, great story line all the way through with some very strange twists. The only problem i had was it finshed.
