Re: Farscape Complete Series Deal of the Day

I'm this....... close to finishing season one and I love how Scorpio is just showing up and explains he wants wormholes. I knew very little about the show besides that.

I also know how the show ends...

Oh, the show gets a lot stranger after Scorpy comes on.

Seriously.

This time around I'm enjoying a number of the episodes that I didn't think much of when I first saw them - stuff like "Thank God It's Friday...Again."

"PK Tech Girl," which I did like a lot the first time, is really sweet.
I noticed a similar effect with some of the Scape episodes, as well as with various movies over the years. The second time through, I find an affinity for them that I hadn't noticed before. Why do you suppose that happens? Is it due to a sort of "resetting" of our expectations, as if they get lowered after the first time and so are easier to meet?

I should really rewatch my series. It'll be even more fun now that I know the characters.

What? I didnt no season one was in fullscreen? WTF! This totally ruins it for me, i hate fullscreen when my computer is widescreen.

And cant get Window Media Player to strech it. Yikes, this sucks.
Why on Earth would you want to stretch video that wasn't intended to be widescreen? That would make the whole video look distorted.
Unfortunately, it's something that has fallen into the "get used to it" category. I got my first widescreen TV last year and it was a top of the line model and one of the first things I discovered is, yes, you can set the image to 4:3, but it doesn't convert the image to 4:3 by itself - it cuts the image off at the sides. I discovered that while trying to watch a Chaplin movie, and later one of the Farscapes. I elected to just keep the image at widescreen and watch it. You do get used to it after a while.

Fortunately, some Blu-ray makers and realizing this issue,and some (not all) 4:3 shows being released to the format such as The Prisoner and Metropolis are formatted on the disc to play at 4:3, so they show without anything being cut off. Hopefully when Chaplin films begin showing up on Blu-ray that'll be done too. Or, for that matter, Farscape and other shows from the era, if they ever upconvert them (hey, stranger things have happened - they're doing Space:1999 for Blu-ray now).

Anyway, you think that screen formatting issues are fun now, just wait till we end up in a "you'll get used to it" situation with force-fed 3-D...

I would have thought that most (if not all) of Chaplin's films were shot in Academy Ratio (11:8, or approximately 4:3).

Space:1999 season 1 on Blu-ray is 4:3. No hideous matting in sight.

Re: Farscape Complete Series Deal of the Day

I finally got my set last week. According to Big Finish (who I order regularly from and shipments go through the US before coming out here), US customs have gotten tighter and therefore it takes longer for shipments to arrive, which explains why my last two orders from them have taken so long to get here. Same for Amazon which was normally pretty quick.

Great, like we didn't have enough problems with US Custom officers on this board already.

Yeah, I buy from the Book Depository in England a lot and some CDs I ordered on the 10th of December only made it to me last week!

Re: Farscape Complete Series Deal of the Day

Indeed. I use to get orders from Big Finish in three weeks but two orders ago took about two months and my last order (December 17) hasn't gotten here yet. Hell, I still haven't gotten my December subscription release (and freebie) yet!
