Fitting end to a great series,
This review is from: Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars [DVD] (DVD)
PKW is surely a testament to democracy and fan-power if ever there was! A massive outcry from fans made this possible, a two-part mini-series that ties up the loose ends left dangling from season four. Basically, the entire fifth season is condensed into a mere three hours, so if at times it feels a bit overloaded that's understandable. But you know what, despite the occasional misstep (the pace is sometimes a bit uneven), this is a triumphant and at times brilliant return. Lots of action, intrigue, neat plotting and solid characterisation mark this as a sumptuous treat.
The epic scale and the lavish effects are breathtaking. My only qualm is that while the mini-series does a terrific job of tying up loose ends, it's so dense with little exposition or concession to newbies, that it was probably unlikely to capture the interest of new viewers. Still, welcome back Farscape! Keep an eye out for a series of 'webisodes' coming soon.
