From Amazon.co.uk

The first series of Farscape was a revitalising tonic for TV SF. An ambitious coproduction of Jim Henson's Creature Shop, Australia's Channel 9 and Hallmark Entertainment, Farscape launched itself with a refreshing mix of CGI, prosthetics and state-of-the-art puppetry to take a visual leap beyond other genre shows. The witty scripts, too, peppered with double-entendres and pop-culture references, are light years away from the staid style of Star Trek. Admittedly, the first season's basic premise is simply Buck Rogers updated (American astronaut John Crichton, played by Ben Browder, is catapulted to a far-flung galaxy populated by strange aliens), while the crew initially have something of Blake's 7 about them (a motley bunch of escaped convicts pursued by a relentless foe), and ideas like the living ship are borrowed from Babylon 5, but the Farscape concept has a freshness that makes it all look and feel completely original. --Mark Walker

Farscape's first season is a winner. Although clearly in its infancy, the series quickly estabished a group of interesting malcontents riding around on a living prison ship (which, contrary to the amazon.com review, the concept of a living ship wasn't borrowed from Babylon 5. It's been in science fiction literature for years and was first used in Star Trek: The Next Generation in the episode entitled Tin Man). Astornaut John Crichton has been flung through a wormhole while on an experimental space flight. He ends up on the other side of the glaxay. There he discovers that the Universe is filled to the brim with alien life forms. We haven't encountered them because our corner of the Milky Way still has too many vacancies.
He has to throw his fortunes in with a group of escaped prisoners and a Peacekeeper--the galatic military police force that keeps law and order. It's not the premise that matters (there are any number of great premises that fail to deliver).
What matters is the quality of the writing. Episodes like the Premiere, That Old Black Magic and others feature strong writing and witty performances by the ensemble cast. The direction is always interesting and even the weakest written episodes usually has something to recommend it.
The visual effects are marvelous and most on are a par with feature films. This isn't the finest season but it has many terrific moments that rank with the best in television science fiction.

Farscape is at the least a refreshing Sci-Fi TV series that reminds us (a little bit) of the beginning of Buck Rogers: the main character is a contemporary human that is catapulted by accident through a wormhole to a further technological advanced faraway point in the universe.
It's funny and sexy, well directed, reasonable scripts (even though the forced hate relationship between the villain with the bad hair do and the hero is pretty lame), the CGI is very good; the puppets are the best of Henson's workshop.
It is a must have for Si-Fi fans. Very good special features within a great packaging box set with 22 episodes at a very good price.
FOR ALL NON-ENGLISH VIEWERS: This DVD box set doesn't have any audio options besides original English (no problem here); BUT (and this is unforgiving): no subtitles available (not even English for the hearing unpaired). Making it really difficult to understand if you are not a very well English language tutored person: names and Sci-Fi terms are really difficult to catch, so as when aliens speak up (this makes me think twice before considering purchase further seasons; and let me say, modesty apart, I think I have had pretty good tutoring). Hence the 4 stars general rate (4 for the show and 1 for communication options, maybe the DVD producers don't want to make more money with it).

The long awaited dvd-box-set of season 1 has arrived.
FarScape is a welcome breath of fresh air in the world of sci-fi. The Jim Henson Company tells a story about an astronaut who, during a test flight, gets shot through a wormhole, and ends up on the other side of the universe in the middle of a space battle. What seems unreal to him, looks pretty everyday to the aliens surrounding him. As events unfold, he is forced to team up with a colorful crew of escaped prisoners.
While finding a way home, they have to stay out of the claws of a race called 'the peacekeepers' which are, despite their name, actually a pretty ruthless and aggressive species.
The great thing is that, unlike some other series, everything is possible in this universe and no one feels the need to explain why it is possible. Just as you think you start to know how the series is going to develop, the next episode takes you by surprise.
Combine the amazing Jim Henson Studios creations with some funny and dead-sexy characters ("Ah you mean like The Muppets?" "Mmmm no, not quite!"), and you will have yourself a series to have and to hold. Forever.

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Sam Anders on 2 Jun. 2007
Format: DVD
This is so close to a five star series but I've decided to give it only four for the fact it doesn't quite reach the same quality as later series and the stunning neglect of language options on the disks (No subtitles of any kind including english for the hearing impaired).
The series follows an astronaut John Crichton who is on an experimental one-man space flight when a wormhole opens up out of nowhere and he's suddenly catapulted across the universe into the middle of a massive space battle. Long-story-short he ends up on board a living ship full of escaped prisoners trying to avoid the Peace-Keepers (The PKs are basically the federation from star-trek but with more torture and oppression). The plot of the series does take a few episodes to get into swing, with the episodes still very much self-contained stories as opposed to parts of one big storyline until about episode 19. Having said that all of the episodes (bar 'Jeremiah Crichton') are very enjoyable sci-fi stories in themselves and still feature some of the best characters to grace science fiction, albiet in their development infancy.
The series has all the usual problems of a first season; the characters are less refined, the effects are occasionally patchy blah, blah, blah. It still contains some of the best writing in the genre for a long time, rivaled only by Firefly. The characters quickly become very ambiguous, with none of our 'heroes' fitting the squeaky-clean standard of most American sci-fi recently. Even Crichton, the central and most easily sympathetic character starts showing the beginnings of dangerous insanity towards the end of the series and a blinding determination to get home.
