Product Overview

Farscape: The Complete Season 2 unfolds as a tapestry of histories and mysteries. Following Season One's harrowing finale, John Crichton and the crew of the living space ship Moya must now evade the villainous Scorpius. But that's even harder than it seems, thanks to the insidious connection Scorpius has forged with Crichton. 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 tested when they discover the part a crew member played in the brutal fate of Moya's first Pilot. Things spin even further out of control as the crew struggles to deal with the violent nature of Moya's offspring not to mention murders, royal weddings, identity crises, terrorists and slave traders. Building upon the mind-boggling Season 1, FARSCAPE SEASON TWO delivers even more ingenious stories, extraordinary new characters, its razor-sharp dialogue and dazzling special effects, from the artists at Jim Henson Productions.

This six disc DVD collection includes all 22 episodes from the The Complete Season 2 of Farscape.

Review Who would have thought a TV series where two major characters are puppets would manage to be taken seriously? I didn't, and while I enjoyed the first few episodes of the first series I really didn't think it could take off. How wrong I was - even at the beginning of the first series there was a lot of promise, and this has been built on to the extent that I now think Farscape is just as important as the various Trek's in the TV science fiction arena...Leaving behind the somewhat stuffy image that Star Trek has picked up in recent years, Farscape never takes itself too seriously. But at the same time it's not exactly lightweight stuff. The series tackles numerous concepts usually restricted to the realms of heavy sci-fi. In addition even with the core characters, you're never quite sure if they're on the same team and double-crossing seems to be a way of life aboard the living starship, Moya. Despite this, the crew still manage to co-exist believably and although they almost always end up fighting on the same side, the way that this is done is very believable...It's quite difficult to work out who the target audience is. While for the most part the concepts and stories are suitable for wide audience, the writers have chosen not to aim at as large an audience as possible with some quite adult language present in some episodes. One or two episodes due to appear later in the series have been classified as 18 by the BBFC...One thing the writers are not scared of doing is pushing the envelope of the series. There isn't the 'reset-button' mentality that prevails over other series. Characters actions DO resonate through the series and the writers are obviously not holding back in the character development department.
