Product Details

Product Description


Farscape established itself as a darker, more volatile alternative to the relative utopian ideals of the Star Trek universe, right down to its gloomy, claustrophobic look, but nowhere is that more apparent than its journeys into the hidden pasts of its fugitive heroes. The fourth volume of episodes features a peek into the pasts of Dominar Rygel and ninth level Priestess Zhaan as they hide from the fleets of Peacekeeper soldiers in the galactic frontier known as the Uncharted Territories.

Rygel spent years imprisoned and tortured aboard the Zelbinion, the most feared Peacekeeper battleship of all time, and when they find it a drifting derelict in PK Tech Girl, his memories come back to haunt him. While he battles his demons of the past, the defenseless crew takes on a fleet of ruthless, froglike scavengers ("They spit fire? How come nobody tells me these things!") while American rocket jockey John Crichton finds romance with the a pretty Peacekeeper technician abandoned aboard the wreck (resulting in emotional fireworks from the jealous Aeryn).

That Old Black Magic pits the crew against an evil magician that has been draining the souls of his planet for years and craves the fresh minds of Moya's crew. "I feed on death," the psychic vampire cackles while pitting Crichton against his bloodthirsty nemesis, Peacekeeper Captain Crais, and only Zhaan can save him by unleashing the angry, evil former self she had spent years burying deep within her soul. --Sean Axmaker

Product Description

"PK Tech Girl": Our crew encounters the drifting derelict of the most feared Peacekeeper battleship, Zelbinion. The discovery has a devastating effect on Rygel… it's the first ship on which he was imprisoned. And Aeryn is finding herself jealous of the attraction she witnesses between Crichton and Gilina, the PK technician they have met aboard the Zelbinion. But as our crew comes under attack by the Sheyangs, a race of savage scavengers, all must put their emotions aside and focus on the battle they face…

"That Old Black Magic": A simple trip to a commerce planet turns into a life-or-death nightmare for Crichton when he is tricked by the dark sorcerer, Maldis. As his spirit literally gets torn from his body, Crichton is transported to a dark supernatural world and forced to battle his arch enemy, Crais, in a deadly game designed to entertain Maldis. It is up to Zhaan to save Crichton, but to do so, she must rekindle a dark side within herself that she thought was buried forever…

5.0 out of 5 stars Farscape is the greatest show on TV. April 25 2002
By Jesse
Anyone who does not understand why one would buy DVD's of this show is not a fan. The DVD's last forever and you can revisit the show when ever you want through them. I'm not getting these for right now. I'm getting these for ten years from now.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4th FARSCAPE DVD is a Good View March 5 2002
Well, it was bound to happen. The fourth DVD based on the FARSCAPE series came out, but it was the first one without any real special features at all. While the DVDs are nice to have simply because of the quality of the graphics and the extra footage not seen in North America, is that really enough? I don't think so.
This one starts out with "PK Tech Girl", one of my favourite Season One episodes. When the crew of Moya find the wreckage of a legendary Peacekeeper ship, the Zelbininon, floating in space, they go aboard to see what they can find starchart-wise. But the Zelbinion is not deserted, as Crais left a tech team to go over the ship, and the only survivor, Gilina, hits it off with Crichton. Meanwhile, Rygel must come to grips with having been tortured on this infamous ship, and the fire-breathing scavengers, the Sheyangs, who arrive on the scene don't make the situation any easier. This is a lovely story with some good stuff in it, marred only by the Sheyang at times, but the extra footage here doesn't really make or break this episode. Still, it puts certain story elements into the forefront, provides some background on Rygel, and give Crichton a lust interest that he's not really been given a chance to have yet. Plus, it acts as the catalyst for several storyline developments down the road (notably in "Durka Returns").
The second episode, "That Old Black Magic", has the crew of Moya visiting a commerce planet searching for a remedy for Rygel's case of flu. An evil sorcerer, Maldis, rules the planet through fear and intimdiation, and when he captures both Crichton and Crais and pits them against one another, Zhaan is forced to bring her dark side to the surface to save her shipmate.

2.0 out of 5 stars Only Two Episodes? Sept. 7 2001
By A Customer
I love Farscape, and PK Tech Girl is a fantastic episode, so when I heard that they were releasing the episodes on DVD, I was ready to rush out and buy them. Until I realized they were charging [price] for two episodes, with no extras. Having bought the magnificent X-Files boxed sets for less than [price] each, I can't bring myself to justify the expense. I have the same problem with the old Star Trek episodes. Why would I spend that much when I can tape any of these episodes off the television? Give me a season boxed set, or at least some noteworthy outtakes or extras, and I would love to get these DVDs. Until then, I'll just stick with the my episode recordings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love that Farscape Aug. 28 2001
I did not get interested in Farscape until the last 5 episodes of the second season. I don't know why I didn't watch it before. I have been hooked ever since and have started collecting the DVD's as they come out. I would prefer more than two episodes per DVD but only if they were the same quality. "That Old Black Magic" is my favorite episode so far. My favorite character is Bialar Crais and TOBM really delves into what makes him tick. "PK Tech Girl" was also a good episode. It is interesting to see how John reacts to all the new things he is encountering in their travels. Buy 'em and watch 'em they are the best!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous transfer Aug. 25 2001
I am totally enjoying the DVD releases of Farscape. The sound is outstanding (listen on headphones!) and the picture quality is nearly perfect. Only briefly are there any unmoving background shots which take on a static, unreal matte quality. Alyssa-Jane Cook is wonderful as the PK Tech Girl; wish they could have kept her in the series. Like others, I miss the audio commentary on the later discs. Still, these are fantastic releases. Buy them now!

5.0 out of 5 stars You people are way too harsh... Aug. 22 2001
By poddie
I believe that it was ADV's president that said that this is the only way they could release the series. Henson demanded (and rightfully so) that the audio/video quality be high, so there are two episodes per dual-layer DVD (1 ep per layer). I believe the UK discs are two single-layer DVDs per pack with four episode (2 eps per layer). What this means is that there is nearly twice the bitrate on the American discs and the shows look fantastic.
Adding one more episode to the disc would be akward because it would mean a layer change in the middle of the second episode (as well as the diminished quality based on the bitrate). Adding another disc would make them more expensive, and the major retailers won't buy ...discs from smaller companies like ADV. Neither will they buy the bigger box sets...
So the choices are: (1) A little more expensive with knockout video (2) Reduce the quality (and I don't think this was an option because of Henson) (3) NO DVDs
Given these choices, we should be glad we're seeing these at all...
And it looks like V7 may start a slightly cheaper pricing scheme as well....

2.0 out of 5 stars Skimping on the extras! July 16 2001
By S. Ryhn
While the first 3 DVDs had entertaining audio commentaries on the episodes, the 4th DVD does not. Indeed, the "extras" are production designs and a D'Argo profile, of which half of the footage is recycled from eariler DVD extra footage.
Given that they are only putting 2 episodes on each DVD, this really felt like they are socking it to us. I was rather ticked about the whole deal. If it wasn't such a great series, I would never contemplate buying another DVD. As it is, they better not skimp on the extras on the future DVDs, or they will have one fewer customer in me. :(
