    On bestbuy.com:

    Complete Season 3 (original release) is $57.99
    Complete Season 4 (original release) is $42.99.

    Starburst Edition Vol 1 - $9.99 http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....uct&id=1396423
    Starburst Edition Vol 2 - $9.99 http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....uct&id=1404395
    Starburst Edition Vol 4 - $7.99 http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....uct&id=1430187

    *Everyone else is still at or above $100 a piece for these.

    **Supposedly the Starburst sets are this price in store as well but ARE NOT marked that way but will ring up that way -- YMMV on this as I do not know this for certain myself. **Credit goes to kenbenobi on dvdtalk for this**

    Hmmm ... At those prices for Seasons 3 and 4, I can just stop collecting the Starburst Editions, and finish my collection off!! Also, isn't Season 4 presented in 16:9 anamorphic Widescreen?

    Thanks for the info!

    Excellent deal for me to finally get started on Farscape, especially considering that these are starburst.
    All the stores in my area were sold out, and the items are on backorder, but I placed my order and can't wait to receive all 3 units.
    I hope I have the opportunity to find such a deal on the other volumes (especially V3) sometime in the near future.

    Thank you muchly!

    The only damper on these Farscape deals is that the season 1 and 2 Starburst DVD-18 (dual DVD-9 glued together) have been reported as having playback problems, not unlike other Universal DVD-18's made in Mexico. But for $8, it's worth the risk for me.

    I hope that if there are playback problems, the studio will address them for me.
    I'm also kind of hoping that since they are backordered, they might be filled with the DVD-9 releases anyway.

    Do the Starburst editions have improved transfers over the original releases?

    So far I'm 1 for 1. Edition 1.1 has arrived and is 4 discs rather than 2 DVD-18s.

    Wow! That's great news John!


    And yes, season 4 made the jump to anamorphic widescreen.
