Product Description

The entire third season of the popular sci-fi television show. In 'Season of Death' Crichton undergoes some dark days when he loses the reason to live. 'Suns and Lovers' sees the crew trapped at a trading station. 'Self-Inflicted Wounds - Part 1' has the Moya fuse with another small spacecraft after the two crash together. 'Self-Inflicted Wounds - Part 2' finds the crew battling to save Moya from some on-board saboteurs. 'Different Destinations' sees Crichton and the other crew members accidentally slip back in time, and then, in their efforts to return, risk changing the course of history. In 'Eat Me' Crichton and the crew run into some cannibalistic mutant scavengers. 'Thanks For Sharing' finds the crew getting mighty confused when they discover that there are two Crichtons walking around. 'Green Eyed Monster' sees Talyn disappear into the depths of a giant space creature. 'Losing Time' has Pilot possessed by an alien being and the crew experiencing bouts of lost time. 'Relativity' finds Areyn faced with a moral dilemma when she discovers that her mother leads the Peacekeeper squad in pursuit of Talyn. In 'Incubator' Crichton becomes involved in negotiations for some stolen wormhole technology. 'Meltdown' sees the ship come too close to a sun and release a fluid which causes the crew to act in unusual ways. 'Scratch 'n' Sniff' has the crew visit a pleasure world and fall victim to theft and substance abuse. 'Infinite Possibilities Part 1: Daedalus Demands' finds Crichton accused of sharing vital technological secrets with the Charrids. In 'Infinite Possibilities Part 2: Icarus Abides' the secrets of the wormhole technology stored in Crichton's mind allow the construction of a displacement engine. 'Revenging Angel' has a clash between D'Argo and Crichton place Moya in danger of destruction. 'The Choice' sees Aeryn visit a planet of mystics as she searches for a way to deal with John's death. 'Fractures' finds the reunion of Moya and Talyn's crews interrupted by escaped convicts. In 'I-Yensch, You-Yensch' Rygel and D'Argo try to negotiate a truce with Scorpius. 'Into the Lion's Den 1: Lambs to the Slaughter' has the crew steel their nerves and attempt to board the Command Carrier. 'Into the Lions's Den 2: Wolf in Sheep's Clothing' sees Crichton try to persuade the crew to destroy the Carrier. Finally, 'Dog With Two Bones' finds Crichton torn between his feelings for Aeryn and his wish to return to Earth.


It's clear right from the opening episodes of its third series that Farscape has finally developed into a grown-up show. There's a new self-confidence and a new maturity here that's entirely welcome after the often wildly erratic tone of the second series. The production design and high-quality effects work remain true to the show's original quirky style, although both the look and the more adult-themed scripts have become progressively darker.

Season 3 is the year when the Wormhole story arc takes precedence, as the interactions between John Crichton and his nemesis Scorpius become ever more complicated (involving various different clones, real or "neural", of both antagonists). It's also the year that some major characters die, new ones are introduced and Crichton (well, one version of him anyway) and Aeryn finally consummate their relationship. Moya's crew endure a vertiginous emotional roller-coaster ride when powerful issues of love, loyalty and sacrifice loom large. They must also face their sternest challenge yet as the series' biggest story arc reaches an explosive climax aboard Scorpius' Command Carrier. Anyone who has not followed Farscape extremely closely from the very beginning of Series 1 will be utterly baffled by the convoluted plotting and complex character interactions. But for fans, this is the show's most rewarding year. --Mark Walker

With its third season, the Jim Henson Company/Sci-Fi Channel's "space adventure" series reached its creative and exciting peak. After a number of fairly average episodes in the second season, several original ideas were inserted to make the 3rd season one to stand out. It was also much darker.
Starting with the episode "Season of Death" to conclude the season 2 cliffhanger, although only as much as anything on Farscape is 'concluded,' the death theme carried through to make each episode more dramatic and realistic, with emotions and character interactions pushed to the limit when Moya's crew is divided and out of contact on two different ships.
Along with a number of fantastic episodes continuing the series' main plot (John Crichton the lost astronaut being hunted by Scorpius for the wormhole knowledge he carries, aboard a ship of simlarly hunted ex-prisoners) there are the usual excellent stand-alone episodes, while the series retains its humour. At a risk of alienating even the most loyal fans, the writers bravely chose to venture into even deeper uncharted territory to produce "Scratch 'N Sniff," a bizarre episode told from John's memories in technicolour, and the popular "Revenging Angel" aka the animated episode. Season 3 is Farscape at its enjoyable and emotional best, with serious development for every character throughout the 22 episodes.
Following the unpopular decision to cancel Farscape after its fourth season, latest evidence suggests a mini-series is currently being filmed to tie up some of the loose ends and hopefully attract a new audience to this, the most creative and exciting sci-fi series on television.

Format: DVD
Season 3 of Farscape was the best of all the 4 seasons in my opinion. This is also the season that takes a special place in my heart because it was the first time I sat up and took notice of Farscape. It has an epic story arc packed with surprises. SPOILER: John Crichton getting twinned at the end of "Eat Me", who could have seen that coming. It is much darker, and the acting has improved immensely giving the required weight to the darker storylines.
One of the highlights of the series is the two-parter: "Infinite Possibilites: Daedulus Demands & Icarus Abides". It's a traditional shoot 'em' up in the sands adventure lent weight by traditional Farscape twists&turns (The battle between John & Harvey, return of Furlow and the Ancients, the death of Talyn John). Other highlights include the cartoon episode (Farscape scores one for originality yet again), the destruction of Scorpius's command carrier, the introspective "Dog with two bones", the tense "Self Inflicted Wounds" and those vital Talyn episodes where we see the romance between Aeryn and Talyn John blossoming.
Of course after all that I could just sum up Season 3 with : WOW.

I'm so glad that I bourght this DVD Boxset, out of my collection of various DVDs this has to be my favourite, the theme that was carried on from season 2 goes way beyond better in season 3.

For those who were fans I think the agreement is that this season peaked, the ideas come thick and fast and each episode is more or less a follow on from the last making season 3 more so like a long version of a movie than just a compilation of great episodes.

A must buy for Science fiction fans, Farscape was very unique and season 3 and also into 4 and beyond in the mini-series was some of the very best science fiction on TV in that the humour is so well tuned and the ideas and creativeness surpassed many other Science fiction shows before during and I'm not afraid to say after, after watching it is sad that the show was this good and was cancelled after season least the entire show ended on a good note though!

Let me tell you a story. I bought this newly released DVD boxset (can we have the blu-ray now, please? Cheers) in HMV a while ago. There were two girls in front of me, one of them was buying exactly the same thing as me, the other was buying the complete boxset. The man behind me asked me where I got mine from, and he proceeded to march over to the TV section. Then I went up to the counter and handed it over to the woman behind it, whereupon she said "God, I need to buy these," and her friend next to her said "Yeah, next payday, I'm getting these." Then I went to Bond Street HMV (it was open back then) to buy another season, and the man in front of me sure enough had the complete boxset under his arm, and the girl behind the counter said "I love these. Best show ever" as I handed the money over.

Farscape isn't the most popular show in the world, and I know it's flawed and uneven to say the least, but these occurances make me feel all glowy inside. I have a special connection to the show. I love DS9, love BSG, but I don't have the same allegiance to those shows as I do to this one. This show feels like an extra limb, like it's part of me as a person, an important characteristic of mine, an aspect of my personality. It's the only show to have that effect on me, as I consider myself to be realistic and not emotionally swayed by such things. No film has had that affect, no book.

I'd better talk about this boxset then: season three is very special. It's the peak of Farscape, the pinaccle of all four seasons. The show takes risks other shows wouldn't, and nowhere is that more evident than in season three. If you have yet to see it, I envy you. I wish I could erase my memory and watch it all over again. You don't know you're born, you really don't.
