Underrated sci-fi

by Alexx Kaye on 10/15/2011

Very entertaining, but at times you could see that the movie has the "lower budget" quality in some of the visual effects, was kind of different, it was always different, and kept the show entertaining, there was always something new going on in the show. INTERESTING

Product Overview

John Crichton. Astronaut. Flung through a wormhole and lost in a galaxy far from home. He finds himself in the middle of a prison break, surrounded by hostile aliens, soaring through space inside a glorious living space ship called Moya. Hunted by the relentless Peacekeepers, he allies himself with his unimaginably alien fellow refugees and searches for a way home. So begins the epic sci-fi classic Farscape. A fusion of live action, state-of-the-art puppetry, prosthetics and CGI, Farscape features mind-boggling alien life forms, dazzling special effects, edge-of-your-seat thrills, irreverent humor and unforgettable characters all brought to life by the creative minds at Jim Henson's Creature Shop. No wonder it's been called the most imaginative sci-fi series in television history. These are the adventures of Moya's crew, Crichton, Peacekeeper Aeryn Sun, warrior Ka D'Argo, azure priestess Zhaan, spritely thief Chiana, Dominar Rigel, Pilot and many others. Like Moya herself, this package contains amazing surprises including hours of bonus materials, making-of featurettes, commentaries, interviews, deleted scenes and much more. Prepare for Starburst!

This twenty-six disc DVD collection includes all 88 episodes from the The Complete Series 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.
