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.

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.

One year on (more or less) from the conclusion to the Farscape series (the mini-series Peacekeeper Wars) and I still haven't recovered from the loss of an ongoing Farscape story. One of the most gripping, thought-provoking, groundbreaking, and entertaining TV series ever made, Farscape's premature cancellation, despite winning many awards, still rankles.
Thankfully, ALL four regular seasons plus the 2-part mini-series conclusion (which brings the story to a satisfactory end at least) are available on DVD. That's 90 hours of perfect television at your fingertips. What more can you ask for?
At the beginning of Season One, John Crichton (superbly played by Ben Browder) is a contemporary American astronaut/scientist on a 'routine' mission outside the earth's atmosphere to test a theory of space propulsion which he has invented. While making his test, he is inadvertently shot though a wormhole instead and spat out 'on the other side of the galaxy.' He is then picked up by the crew of a leviathan ship—which turns out to be a huge benign creature who allows other creatures to live inside her—and is confronted by a motley group of aliens of varying species who have never heard of Earth, and are more concerned with eluding pursuit than with either Crichton or his planet of origin. Turns out this leviathan's crew are all escaped prisoners, and John is stuck on board with them—for better or for worse.
Crichton, the only human, is our instant reference point. He only wants to 'find a way home,' at least at first. Of course we can all relate to his point of view, but as the series develops, we get drawn, with him, into that universe on the other side of the galaxy which holds so many wonders for our displaced human.

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).
