    Season 3: Collection 2


    This item will be available for pre-order on 1/17/2006

    “Sophisticated, Steamy, Truly Bold” – Newsday

    Farscape is an adventure as broad and weird as the universe – full of strange creatures, bizarre twists, irreverent humor, raucous action, passion, and romance! Produced in Australia by The Jim Henson Company and Hallmark Entertainment, Farscape has been called “The Best Sci-Fi on TV,” by TV Guide, and hailed as “TV’s Best Space Series” by USA Today. Farscape also received the Saturn Award for Best Syndicated/Cable Series three years in a row (2001, 2002, 2003).

    Synopsis: It’s a big, crazy universe out there. And American astronaut John Crichton (Ben Browder) is about as lost in it as he can be! The poor guy’s been through a lot. He’s been probed, prodded, framed, frozen, and frelled by alien life forms more bizarre than anything he could have imagined. Now, our long-suffering hero has been cloned against his will. And it’s double-trouble as two Crichtons go on separate adventures! Throw in an dysfunctional crew of quarreling alien ex-cons, a bio-mechanoid ship with a neurotic Pilot, a sadistic military leader with a secret agenda, a beautiful ex-commando who’s learning how to love, and it’s no wonder that… John Crichton is losing his mind!

    Praised by TV Guide as one of the “25 Top Cult Shows Ever,” Farscape is an adventure as broad and weird as the universe – full of strange creatures, bizarre twists, irreverent humor, raucous action, passion, and romance! Produced in Australia with the incredible talents of Jim Henson’s Creature Shop, Farscape is the fantasy-scifi-drama-romance-comedy-adventure you will always remember!

    A DVD-only release including the middle eight episodes of Farscape’s exciting third season, complemented by extensive special features on four DVDs. Episodes in this collection: “Green Eyed Monster,” “Losing Time,” “Relativity,” “Incubator,” “Meltdown,” “Scratch ‘N’ Sniff,” “Infinite Possibilities, Part I: Daedalus Demands,” and “Infinite Possibilities Part II: Icarus Abides.” Audio is presented in English 5.1 and stereo. Each episode is subtitled for the hearing impaired.

    The fourth disc is exclusively devoted to extras! There are four cast interviews – Ben Browder (Crichton), Wayne Pygram (Scorpius), Gigi Edgley (Chiana), Paul Goddard (Stark). Two full-length audio commentaries enhance this edition. The episode “Green Eyed Monster” has commentary from actor Ben Browder – who wrote the script – and Director Tony Tilse. The gripping episode “Relativity” also has commentary featuring Lani Tupu (Captain Crais & the voice of Pilot) & Director Peter Andrikidis. Rounding out this packed collection are deleted scenes, the original Farscape TV promos, “Cool Farscape Facts” by Paul Simpson (author of Farscape: The Illustrated Companion), “Alien Encounters,” an extensive production design gallery, updated character histories, and previews of other coming attractions from ADV Films.
