Product Overview

A great deal of time passes between Seasons Three and Four which helps develop the show's extraordinary characters even more fully. More recent additions to the crew, including Noranti and Sikozu, as well as a shocking former enemy, play major roles in a series of thrilling, surreal, and nearly lethal adventures. As each season has raised the stakes for the crew, this season raises the stakes for the universe itself, with a series of escalating dangers that threaten not only the Farscape galaxy, but Crichton's home galaxy as well. Season 4 features some of the most imaginative science fiction seen in the series so far, while always remaining true to the extraordinary characters, passionate chemistry and whip-crack dialogue that have become Farscape signatures.

This six disc DVD collection includes all 22 episodes from the The Complete Season 4 of Farscape.

Editors Note
Note One of the Sci Fi Channel's most popular series, FARSCAPE is the story of a band of misfit renegades on the run from military Peacekeepers. The hero of the series is the human John Crichton (Ben Browder), a young astronaut and astrophysicist who becomes stranded on the other side of the universe when his Farscape module goes through a wormhole. There, he is taken in by the sentient ship Moya, where he finds himself in the midst of a battle between the militaristic "Peacekeepers" and a small band of prisoners who are escaping their grasp. He chooses to team with the escapees--a Luxan warrior (Anthony Simcoe), a deposed Hynerian ruler who strongly resembles a frog (voiced by Jonathan Hardy), a shunned Peacekeeper pilot (Claudia Black), and others whom they pick up along the way--as they run from the Peacekeepers, explore space, and try to find Crichton a way back to Earth. This collection includes every episode from the series' fourth season.

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.
