Re: FARSCAPE returning to DVD!!!

Suncoasts (as well as Sam Goody and Media Plays) all disappeared arround here, years ago as well. I wasn't surprised since they'd totally rape your wallet if you bought from them.

$149 is actually quite a reasonable price.
For all 4 seasons yes. However, the 4 season sets I have were $100+ each. I bought them only durring sale times though which shaved a lot of that off though.

Re: FARSCAPE returning to DVD!!!

The box art isn't really speaking to me, and I really don't care for the lack of PKW. I mean, how could they call it a "complete series set" without the ending? Regardless, MSRP of $150 ain't bad. I may finally cave and buy it along with the miniseries. Although it'll be really lame if they suddenly do a much better Blu-ray release.

Blu-Ray is the only way that I would buy the set at this point.

Re: FARSCAPE returning to DVD!!!

I'll bet the individual season sets are basically the lower images we saw, minus the larger cover box. That would be rather like a distributor...

I think the reason PKW wasn't included was because A&E doesn't have the rights for it and for whatever reason never acquired it for this release.

Do we even know if the series can be put into high def? I mean if it was all done on tape like TNG, DS9, and VOY, it would be cost prohibitive to be made into high def or downright impossible if it was filmed on tape so putting it on Blu-Ray would be pointless.

Re: FARSCAPE returning to DVD!!!

I just had an amusing thought. Wouldn't it be silly symmetry if The Peacekeeper Wars miniseries was phased out of DVD production just as the "complete series" debuted? I think the PKW has been around for long enough to where they might pull that. It's about $8 on amazon.com

This I don't know. I'm fairly certain Season 4 can be HD. It's pretty obvious watching it that they used a different filming method than the previous seasons.

Yup, that's correct.

I don't have my Starburst seasons 2 & 3 sets on me, but it looks like this set retains much of the special features and commentaries from those sets. I don't care for the cover art or the exclusion of The Peacekeeper Wars, so I won't be running out to get it just yet. Still, I don't have seasons 1 & 4 yet...

Re: FARSCAPE returning to DVD!!!

Why are so many people hung up on the design of the box? Shouldn't they be concerned with what's on the discs? As in, the whole dang series?

As I already own the whole dang series, I don't have a whole lot else to be concerned about.

Yeah. Particulary when you consider that the various Star Trek sets came out at $100.00 a pop.

I looked that up yesterday before I read about the complete series sets. I guess I should order one before they go out of print.

The series is nice, but outside of replacing my double sided discs of season one, I have it already. What interests me is the extras, and from the press release, there isn't one new item that wasn't on the Starburst sets. They've got the gang back together for a panel at Comicon, but can't record one new commentary track? Hell, record the panel, that'll be a new extra!

Re: FARSCAPE returning to DVD!!!

This seems to happen frequently with complete series sets. I think the only decent one I've seen where they didn't just repackage the extras was with the Jericho complete series set.
