While “Farscape: The Complete Series” has been on store shelves for two years, only in the last month has it been released on Blu-ray. So if you or someone you know is a stickler for having the best possible resolution, this remastered, high-def set is a natural.
Well, provided he or she also likes “Farscape.”
While never a huge hit on the level of a “Star Trek” spin-off, the Australian series built up quite a following over its four-season run on the Sci-Fi Channel. Not for nothing did TV Guide deem it “one of television’s best cult shows ever.”
Produced by Jim Henson Productions (yeah, the Muppet people), “Farscape” ran for 88 episodes, each of which can be found among this 20-disc set. In addition, the set includes 15 hours of bonus features, including 29 commentary tracks, 90 minutes of deleted scenes, photo galleries, TV promos, featurettes and — take that,
DVD! — a brand-new documentary, “Memories of Moya: An Epic Journey Explored,” featuring some of the show’s stars and creative talents.
Brian Henson, chairman of his late father’s production company, assures fans “will not be disappointed” with the quality of this Blu-ray release.
From A+E Networks Home Entertainment, “Farscape: The Complete Series
” is available now at a suggested retail price of $199.95. —Rod Lott
