Re: FARSCAPE returning to DVD!!!

I hope they get to use at least some of the extras from the original discs. Also, I loved that they had both versions of the season two premiere (RE:Union and Dream a Little Dream) on the original release - would love to see that happen again.

Re: FARSCAPE returning to DVD!!!

I have two important questions:

1. Will the Complete Series set include The Peacekeeper Wars?
2. Will they release a Blu-ray edition?

Hmm. I'll pick up the complete series if the price is right. Haven't gotten any of this show yet.

Re: FARSCAPE returning to DVD!!!

Oh, hell yes. I bought the very first Farscape DVD that came with the first two episodes, but then I stopped after that when I realized it would cost way too much to buy the whole series. Then I missed out on the Starburst Editions. Farscape is one of my favorite shows of all time, so this is a definite buy for me.

Re: FARSCAPE returning to DVD!!!

I caved and bought the Region 2 complete series box set a while back, so I'm good for Farscape on DVD. Good new for anyone that doesn't have them yet, though.

Yes, although apparently the webisodes might still happen.
The last I heard, they were being scripted. But perhaps KRAD may be the expert here, since he's been writing the comics with Rockne S. O'bannon lately.

Re: FARSCAPE returning to DVD!!!

I already bought the 4 boxes myself, so I've got the series as well. Frell, this always happens. I finally break down and buy some series because it's about to go extinct on me and then once I do that some brand new rerelease comes out.

Re: FARSCAPE returning to DVD!!!

I started buying Farscape back when they were released in Single 2-Episode Discs, I stopped after the 2nd disc came out...

If the price is right, I will finally own Farscape, DS9, Buffy & Angel (Complete)

Cool.

Even though my best friend owns Buffy and Angel and has said I can borrow them whenever I want, a couple weeks ago I found out that Walmart was selling them for only $15 per season! So I broke down and bought 1-3 of Buffy (Season 1 of Buffy and Angel actually came packaged together for only $20).

I love my Farscape DVDs, and I already own the whole show. I think the only way I would buy them again is if they came out on Blu-Ray.

Re: FARSCAPE returning to DVD!!!

A&E usually have expensive dvd sets upon inital release. it takes a few years for them to come down. I doubt we will see even a $40 release price. Im guessing $60+ per season. MSRP will probably be $80.

Re: FARSCAPE returning to DVD!!!

I can't see why anybody would pay more than $100 for a DVD package these days. Those should be 1/10 the price of Blu-Ray releases...

Same happened to me. I've been buying the used dvds as I haven't been able to find new editions & then this happens. Luckily, I do not have S.1 yet, and so will have to get that *new*

Re: FARSCAPE returning to DVD!!!

I bought the Starburst (1 sided) editions only last year, all brand new sealed copies.
Paid over $100 each for 2 of the first seasons sets. Most of the rest weren't too expensive. Avoided the 2 sided discs after reading about numerous problems with them.
But I'm curious, any idea how the full series set might be packaged? I was never too happy with the Stargate SG1 full box set. It looks cool, but a pain in the ass to find the right disc. In hindsight, I wish I had gotten the individual season sets.

Re: FARSCAPE returning to DVD!!!

I guess it depends on the packaging. The two complete series that my family has are both packaged very nicely (Friends and The Twilight Zone).

Re: FARSCAPE returning to DVD!!!

I'm not sure how I feel about this. Other than having trouble find copies of the season 1 & 4 sets, I don't have any problems with the Starburst editions. I already have season 2 & 3 and I hate having to double dip, especially with TV series. The only time I don't mind doing it is if I'm buying the complete series set (like I did with The West Wing).
