I believe this set comes with the Peacekeeper Wars included, doesn't it?
It might now, but in November 2009 when I got mine, it was offered exclusively by Best Buy as a way to drum up their business.
Don't forget that there are two different box sets. The old one and this one with the additional bonus material DVD and other changes.
Aren't we talking about the most recent A&E release? I was under the impression that the older two (Starburst and ADV) had been out of print for a while, and can't be found anywhere anymore.

The version I imported from the States last year (which at the time was still a far cheaper option than buying the UK individual season sets!), didn't have the PKW included. Just kept my Region 2 copy.

I confirm that the A&E set (which is the one that was on sale) does not have Peacekeeper Wars.

Congrats to everyone who just ordered it. It's a great series.

The PKW was only in the Best Buy exclusive set from 2009.

Awesome price. If I didn't already own the series twice (I have the original ADV releases, which were like $30 for 4 episodes, and the current boxset which I ordered on Black Friday), I would snag it up again!

Yes, The Peacekeeper Wars is sold separately, but I often see it on sale for $8.99 on amazon.

Re: Farscape Complete Series Deal of the Day

I'm still happy with the $66 I paid for it. I mean not only did I get the series, but it came with the Miniseries too, and that's an extra, what, $14 if sold separately. I still consider it one of the best purchases I made in 2009.

Heck, I'd say anything under $80-90 is an excellent deal. Most TV shows sell for $30-40 per season. $50 for four whole seasons (plus an extra $8-10 for the miniseries finale) is a steal.

I'll get mine within the next several hours. It's "Out for Delivery" and should get here within 12 hours!

Re: Farscape Complete Series Deal of the Day

I got this yesterday, sat down and watched the premiere last evening.

The show's very nearly perfect in its way, with very little concession to the usual marketing concerns of "how do we get people to watch this?" It's hard to imagine it ever being wildly popular, because it asks a lot of the viewer. This and "Buffy" are the only skiffy TV series that I've really just flat-out loved on their own terms since the original Star Trek.

Woohoo! It's here! The box is a lot smaller than I thought it would be.

Snatched it up immediately (together with Peacekeeper Wars). Good thing it's a matter of seconds to get rid of the DVD region lock.
How d'you do that then? It's the bane of my life.

It's the cheerful 'up yours' to every science fiction that went before, whilst blatantly ripping off vignettes from just about every genre in big and small screen history (over the seasons) which made it so completely unique. That and a cast that weren't afraid to go for it.

Exactly the reaction I had.

Still, I was pleased. My last purchase from A&E video was all six seasons of Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, and those take up a hell of alot of shelf space. I was expecting something similar with Farscape.

I already accidentally ripped the crappy paper "box" it comes in.

Depends on how you want to watch the DVD. For DVD drives there are software tools which override the region check.
With hardware players it's a bit more tricky since it involves a little online research before buying. Many players are only locked down to a region through software settings, meaning by using specific button combinations on the remote/device or undocumented features in the on-screen menu you can reprogram it permanently to run region-free. Then the only thing that matters is to also have picked a player that can handle both NTSC and PAL video and convert between the formats if needed.

It will be a while until my DVDs arrive. This morning Amazon sent the package on its way, but delivery to another continent still takes its time.
