Farscape Seasons 3 and 4: Blu Ray Review

Farscape Seasons 3 and 4: Blu Ray Review

Rating: M
Released by Madman Home Ent

The third and fourth seasons of the cult fave Farscape have a lot to live up to.

Fortunately, they deliver to fans of the show - though you'd expect newcomers may be a little lost at some of the subtleties of what's going on. The series centres around Ben Browder's lost in space via a wormhole pilot John Crichton and his involvement in an ongoing war with Scorpius who's after the wormhole technology.

With creatures from the Jim Henson Muppet Company, this series mixes the sci-fi drama with the zany in an effective manner, wrangling all manner of character moments as well. It's this humanity which serves the series well - and proves the in road to those who may be a little unsure of what's going on.

Complete with an effectively wide set of extras on both discs and a smart transition to HD, these final two full seasons of Farscape showcase a series that was perhaps ahead of its time, but like Firefly, refuses to die due to fervent fan love.
