Season 4 just keeps getting better and better. My favourite episode in this box set has to be on the first dvd 'mental as anything' where scorpius takes the men of Moya to an advanced training camp to learn mental discipline and things get more interesting as D'argo has to confront Macton, the killer of his wife. 'Bringing home the Beacon' starts off as an average farscape venture, the crew land on a planet to purchase a camouflage device for Moya but then discover both Peacekeepers and Scarrans are holding negotiations for a treaty. Plenty of suspense and lots of humour from Chiana and Noranti. The 2nd dvd episode 'A constellation of doubt' sheds light on how the people of earth viewed moyas crew as Crighton watches a documentary, he is intrigued about the word 'Katratzi' and believes it is linked to the wherabouts of Aeryn. In 'Prayer' Crighton is determined to find out where 'Katratzi' is and so both he and scorpius travel the the alternate 'unrealised reality' which he had been to before and try to find the answer from Stark. Meanwhile Aeryn is being tortured by her Scarran Captors and preys for her rescue by Crighton. Altogether a fantastic build up to the last 4 episodes of the season, cant wait to watch boxset 4.5! In fact if i could give this one a rating i'd say its a 4.5 too :-)
