Farscape: Season 3 [Blu-ray]
Customers who viewed this item also viewed
The third season of FARSCAPE explores the wonders, possibilities and dangers of the wormhole phenomenon more completely than ever before. Through more ominous, adult-themed tales, the series also peeks into the darker corners in the minds of Moya’s crew.
In particular, FARSCAPE SEASON 3 shows the dichotomy of John Crichton: from his volatile, passionate bond with Aeryn to his ability to at once unite and divide the loyalties of the crew. As crew members embark on personal missions to deal with individual agendas, the stories showcase smaller ensembles, allowing each character and relationship more room to grow. Before the company reunites, lovers and friends are betrayed and family ties are ripped asunder. Old enemies become allies and dear friends are lost forever.
Some critics have called Season 3 the year FARSCAPE matured into a “grown up show.” Others see it as the year its creators’ brilliance was thrown into overdrive. In any case, now’s your chance to enjoy the continuing adventures of the Moya’s crew in Blu-ray for unsurpassed video and audio quality.

Episode 5, "... Different Destinations" (Written by Steve Worland, First Aired April 13, 2001) is one of the most emotionally devastating "Farscape" episodes ever, which is really saying something. While visiting a memorial that honors the peace treaty made between the Peacekeepers and the Venek Horde a temporal rift opens and Crichton, Aeryn, D'Argo and Jool are pulled back in time to when the monastary was the scene of the great siege. As they try to stay alive and get back to their own time, Crichton and the others realize that every thing they do is changing the course of history, with profound effects (which the rest of the crew on Moya in the "present" can see as the planet below them changes). Crichton desperately tries to find a way to make everything right again while Aeryn learns the truth about a famous Peacekeeper hero and D'Argo befriends a young girl. Far warning: you will be emotionally drained by the end of this one, a classic example of how great time travel stories can be when written intelligently. (5+ Wormholes)
"Eat Me" (Written by Matt Ford, April 20, 2001) finds Crichton, Chaina, D'Argo and Jool landing on an old, diseased Leviathan when their Transport Pod is damaged. Since the Leviathan wears a Peacekeeper Control Collar the gang is on the lookout for Peacekeepers, but instead all they find are mutant scavengers and Kaarvok, a madman who likes to eat brain matter and who has the power to "twin" any living being. This he does to D'Argo, Chaina, and Crichton. Meanwhile, Aeryn, Rygel and Stark discover a beaten and battered Talyn drifting through space, along with an unconscious Crais. At first this seems like a "road not taken" episode where the crew encounters a Leviathan carrying their less fortunate counterparts. But "Eat Me" ends with what ends up being the most significant plot develop during Season 3. (5 Wormholes)
"Thanks For Sharing" (Written by Clayvon C. Harris, First Aired June 15, 2001) has Crichton going crazy trying to figure out which one of him is the original and which the clone. Meanwhile, when D'Argo, Chiana and Rygel head down to Kanvia to pick up some Chromextin, a healing drug for the ailing Talyn, they become embroiled in local politics. Then there is the bombshell that Crais drops on Aeryn regarding her mother and the circumstances of her conception. The news is rather pertinent because it is Xhalax Sun that is commanding the Peacekeeper Retrieval Squad that attacked Talyn. Consequently, there are a whole lot of "to be continued" elements for Season 3 introduced in this episode. (4 Wormholes)
This is one of the stellar discs in the "Farscape" collection. The first episode is an absolute classic, and the other two are pivotal in establishing the major story arc of Season 3, which explored the themes of separation and death in some depth.
Tape one contains: The Flax and Jeremiah Crichton. The Flax is a very good episode which shows continued character growth and even features a couple very humorous moments. It also features some lovely shipper moments for those who like John and Aeryn together as the two lunge for each other when they are convinced they are going to die. Jeremiah Crichton is a mediocre episode at best, but since the other episodes in this set are so good, it can easily be overlooked. And for those fans who love just watching Ben Browder(Crichton), then they will enjoy this episode.
Tape Two contains: Durka Returns and A Human reaction. Durka returns is a great episode which introduces Moya's newest member-Chiana, as well as the Nebari race. Durka is a great villian and this episode continues with storylines previously mentioned in the PK Tech Girl(Coll. 2) episode. Solid episode. A Human reaction is an excellent episode and one of my all-time favorites. When Crichton goes through a wormhole to return to Earth, he does not get the warm homecoming he thought he would. And when Aeryn, Rygel, and D'Argo join him there, Crichton must confront his divided loyalties to save his friends from being killed. But things are not what they seem on the strangely unchanged Earth. Terrific episode with great writing and acting, very important for future storylines. Also, the scenes between Crichton and Aeryn in the hotel are uncut on this video.
Tape three has: Through the Looking Glass and A Bug's Life. Through the looking glass is a great episode which showcases teamwork when Moya attempts to prematurely Starburst and ends up separated into 4 different Moyas with the crew scattered about. This episode is both touching and cute and shows how the escaped prisoners have become a family and rely on each other. A Bug's life is a very good episode with Crichton and Aeryn having to impersonate Peacekeepers in order to escape recapture, but the crew of Moya ends up transporting a deadly virus that can inhabit people without the host or anyone else knowing.
This is a terrific boxset with 5 out of 6 episodes being exceptionally good viewing. Farscape is one of the best scifi shows ever and this set showcases when the show started to really become the enthralling show it is today. This set has something for everyone--Romance, action, humor, and great special effects. Don't hestitate to buy this set, you won't be sorry.
This is the 3rd box set of Farscape's first season. Three tapes come in this box-set and each tape contains 2 epidsodes. These are shown in order.
Tape 1: "The Flax" & "Jeremiah Crichton";
Tape 2: "Durka Returns" & "A Human Reaction" ;
Tape 3: "Through the Looking Glass" & "A Bug's Life".
What marks this set of tapes is the entrance of the character Chiana who would go on to become a regular cast memeber ("Durka Returns"). Also, the characters continue to grow and continuity begins to play out quite well.
