    Farscape should ship via wormhole.

    That would be awesome...until I get some unrealized reality version where D'argo and Rygel are the main romantic couple. :wtf:

    What order of episodes should I follow? The box set is completely different than Netflix which follows the TV viewing episode list.

    Watch them in the order on the discs. It's the same as the original ADV episode order and the only way I've ever watched them. Not sure why Netflix has them in that order. "I, ET" is meant to be the second episode.

    I assume Netflix went with the airdate order instead of the production order.

    Well, as far as I am aware, the DVD order is the order in which they are meant to be seen. At the very least, I never really noticed anything weird watching them in that order.

    DVD releases tend to go with production orders and production seasons. For example, Futurama has five aired seasons prior to the movies, but only four production seasons and DVD boxsets reflect that.

    It was great when I finally got rid of my VHS tapes of Trek. My DVD collection fits in 5 books on one shelf of my bookcase. (I have the original boxes in plastic cases stuffed under the bed.

    Having 4 extra shelves allowed me to move my genealogy collection in here. :evil:

    Netflix must have done something similar with Stargate SG-1. I'm currently watching that on Netflix and some of the episodes aren't in the same order they're listed in at IMDb or Wikipedia.

    Yes it turns out Netflix had the airdates. I had watched the first two episodes on Netflix and seemed to miss something on the DVD, they just jump right in. I want to see more bad guys. I can tell they are building up to something.

    It's just how shows were filmed at the time. Widescreen had yet to become the norm for TV.

    Only season 4 and Peacekeeper Wars are available in 16:9. Not many people had widesreen TVs when the show originally aired.

    Why on Earth would you want to stretch video that wasn't intended to be widescreen? That would make the whole video look distorted.

    You should see what i do to old doctor who episodes. Plus alot of people i no use Zoom on their tvs to fill the tv screen and i do that for old Doctor Who on my computer. Saddly i cant figure how to get Media Player to do it. So might have to rip it and play with GOM.

    Of course the images weren't composed or performed for widescreen, so...
