Re: Farscape... I am liking this series...

I too love Farscape, it's in my top 3 along with DS9 and Babylon 5.

Yes, a full Season 5 (Or even the 10 episode S5 SyFy reportedly offered when they backed out of their original commitment for S5) would've been much better, but, after that S4 cliffhanger, and waiting for a year or two to have it resolved (fearing it never would), I can't tell you how grateful I am they gave us Peacekeeper Wars Miniseries. It was rushed, but, action packed all the way, and a great final chapter.

So, when you get to the end of S4, think on what we who watched it live went through with that cliffhanger, it'll make you enjoy the MiniSeries Peacekeeper Wars all the more

Agreed. Add TOS and TNG, and you have my top five.

Farscape-bending space opera on its ear for four seasons. And making us love it the whole time.

In Region One, it's already available. Just note that the picture quality is not 1080p -- but it is slightly better than NTSC video.

Oh, I will have to check it out, the version on Netflix is horrible quality.

Whatever happened to the webseries they were talking about? I was looking at the comics after I made my other post, and the first description talks about the comics setting up the upcoming webseries?

The funding they had set up fell apart during the economic collapse. I haven't heard anything since. Future Farscape projects seem unlikely, but you never know.

The Blu-ray version was upconverted from the PAL (625i50) tapes, and doesn't look significantly better than the PAL DVDs. It should be higher quality than NTSC, though. However, the Blu-ray of the PKW miniseries apparently looks like shit. I'd stay away from that.

Ah. I know when the final big arc of the comics ended, they seemed to be promoting it as the end of the entire Farscape story.

Re: Farscape... I am liking this series...

I love Farscape. It is one of my favorite series of all time. It is up there with DS9 and Babylon 5.

I think I shall go home tonight and pull out the DVDs. This thread makes me want to see Sparky and the gang in action.

Since Blu-ray is not that much better. I may hold onto my DVDs. Those things did not come cheap.

Still my all time favorite show, glad to see people enjoying it after all these years. I wish it would come back, but that ships probably sailed at this point. One can always hope though, it's a shame I never see any of the cast in anything else. Talyn....Starburst!! is stil heart rendering to me this day.

I've just started rewatching it for the first time from the beginning.

First thoughts:

- Wow, Claudia Black looks so young.

- It's really refreshing to see so much color
