Re: Farscape - Starburst DVDs

I have an irritating mix of standard and Starburst. Couldn't get a reliabley consistant supply of one or the other.

Re: Farscape - Starburst DVDs

We all thought that Sony was going to be putting out a better edition at the time.. but I guess they're just sitting on it.

I doubt Sony will ever release Farscape remember they didn't even bother to release the original Transformers how inept can you get? Does anyone know how long these license deals last? I'd hate for them to have the rights forever.

Re: Farscape - Starburst DVDs

When I got the gig to cowrite the Farscape comic book, I had to track down the DVDs for seasons 2-4 and The Peacekeeper Wars. I only had the old ADV two-episodes-per-box DVDs for the first season, and nothing else.

PKW was easy enough to get, but the others were more of a challenge. Luckily, I was able to find good deals from Amazon Marketplace on all but one, and that one I got off eBay. I paid between $20 and $25 for all of them.

I'm hoping with the webisodes and the comic book, Sony might be interested in getting them back into print.....

^ Sony won't care like they didn't care when Transformers was big at the box office and they didn't bother to release the DVDs of the G1 cartoon.

Re: Farscape - Starburst DVDs

I can't recall if it was established at the time why Sony bought just the one season, and what the hell they intended to do with it. Did the reasoning (if that's the right word ) ever emerge?

In NZ you can get the full 4-season (full seasons) set in one pack, for US$88. No extras though.

Not a bad looking box too. If I liked the show I would've snapped it up.

What? You mean you weren't provided with a full set of the show? What kind of frelled-up operation are those thoddos running, anyway?

Re: Farscape - Starburst DVDs

Sony only bought the rights to S1 because those were the only rights available at that time, since S2-4 rights were still held by ADV.

I read on a DVD board I visit that all of the Starburst Editions from ADV are now OOP (out-of-print), so it's possible that Sony may release the whole series now since they (presumably) hold the rights to everything (except the Peacekeeper Wars, as that's through Lionsgate.)

I guess we'll see.

That makes sense. It also makes sense that they'd sit on the first season 'til they get the rest. It'll be interesting to see what happens - I'd like to see some better quality sets available in R4. The ones we got were / are an absolute joke.

Re: Farscape - Starburst DVDs

Along with Lexx, this is a series I fancy having on DVD from time to time. So from time to time I check the prices and decide not to

Your mileage may vary, from Ebay to Play.com, £28 to £80

Re: Farscape - Starburst DVDs

Now, all the starburst editions have gone OOP. Is Sony ever planning on re-releasing them?

Yeah, I'm pretty pissed about that because I never got the chance to buy the first season (I held off until they released them as single-sided, but then I never got to it). Stupid Sony.

eBay and Amazon Marketplace are your best bet for the first season, but it'll cost you a few pretty pennies.
I did the same thing, I waited till they got rid of the double sided crappy ones. I have seasons 3&4 of the Starburst packs, never got to buy Season 1.
