Finally! Farscape: The Definitive Collection Comes To Region 2 DVD!

Tweet

I have just received a press release regarding the forthcoming Region 2 DVD release of a boxset that I have been waiting for for….well, it feels like forever!

One of the best science-fictions series ever is finally getting the Region 2 DVD release it deserves as, on the 15th of November the Farscape: The Definitive Collection will be hitting the shelves – a whopping 32 disc boxset that contains all 88 episodes of the four seasons of this epic sci-fi show from the mind of Jim Henson – and also includes over 15 hours of bonus features & the Farscape: The PeaceKeeper Wars mini series that ended the series.

For a fan of the show like me, who missed out on buying the DVD’s when they were originally released, this is a dream come true as I have been desperate to get my hands on this series once again!

It’s been showing on the FX TV channel here in the UK recently, & I have to say it has aged incredibly well & is just as great as I remember it.

Here’s the official press release:

FARSCAPE™: THE DEFINITIVE COLLECTION from A&E™ is a fan’s dream; all 88 episodes of all four seasons of the classic sci-fi show in one stunning box set, not to mention over 15 hours of bonus features including two disc mini-series THE PEACEKEEPER WARS and rarely-seen special FARSCAPE UNDRESSED.

FARSCAPE follows the adventures of astronaut John Crichton, flung through a wormhole to a far off galaxy while testing a prototype spaceship. Plunged into the midst of a battle, he is rescued by Moya, a living craft crewed by a motley group of escaping alien prisoners being hunted by the fiercely militaristic Peacekeepers.

Featuring mind-blowing sci-fi action, superb storytelling, great special effects and character designs by The Jim Henson Company, FARSCAPE has stood the test of time as a landmark science fiction series. Prepare for the adventure of a lifetime with Moya’s crew – likeable hero John Crichton; renegade Peacekeeper Aeryn Sun; short-tempered warrior Ka D’Argo; psychic priestess Zhaan; mercurial thief Chiana and deposed monarch Dominar Rygel XVI.

* FARSCAPE: THE DEFINITIVE COLLECTION features all four series of the classic sci-fi show – 88 episodes – in one special collector’s edition.

* More than 15 hours of bonus material including the rarely-seen special FARSCAPE UNDRESSED as well as episode commentaries, behind-the-scenes interviews, deleted scenes and much, much more.

* Bonus 2-disc miniseries FARSCAPE: THE PEACEKEEPER WARS in which our heroes find themselves in the middle of a war-to-end-all-wars.

So set the date in your diaries. The 15th of November is when this fantastic boxset will be released, and it’s yours for £99.99, which when you think how much you get & how fantastic it was, is an absolute steal!

Personally, I cannot wait.

    Oh cool. I just got the farscape set here on region 1 DVD, but it doesn’t have The Peacekeeper Wars. I’m currently watching V, but I’m looking to start Farscape as soon as I’m done.

    What do you think of Lexx, by the way?
