Sure there is, they can lower the price. They just lowered the MSRP of all their other live shows by half. Andromeda Season 1 will be ~$40 street and it comes on 10 DVDs. I'm not a big fan of the show, but at that price I'll bite.

I am a fan of the show and $25 (at Bestbuy) for a 2-Disc set of 4-5 episodes + extras seems pretty reasonable to me. As for lowering the price, I believe it been said a few times elsewhere that Farscape has quite a few hands in the pot (Henson, Hallmark, ADV, and some other owners) that all need to be paid thus the higher price tag.

And if you don't want to pay ADV's price for Farscape, it's still on TV and can be taped or watched on Sci-Fi.

Wait for the box. $85 for the season is better than $150+.

I kinda feel sorry for all the poor sods who paid that for Andromeda when you'll be able to get the whole season for ~$40. That's $8 per 2-DVD set.

I won't buy ETC untill S1 & S2 are available.

Knowing Universal, they'll charge $79 for it and it will be 4:3 and have a poor transfer.

Say what you will about ADV, they do stellar transfers.

For any Farscape fans that haven't heard, AICN, ING and Dark Horizons are all reporting that the Farscape production offices are open, the sets are being reassembled and they are in pre-production for a 4 hour mini-series to bring closure to the Farscape saga.

I doubt every hanging thread will be tied up, but the main stuff should be addressed. No word on when they will show (I'm guessing during Sci-Fi's summer season), but barring any crash and burn between now and air dates, we should all have two more Farscape DVDs to look forward to in early 2005.
