Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Clearly the brightest jewel in the Sci-Fi Channel's original-programming crown, Farscape continues to expand its genre's boundaries with provocative, consistently engrossing episodes -- among them the four second-season installments collected in this two-disc box set. Viewers will be reintroduced to John Crichton (Ben Browder), the erstwhile astronaut catapulted into a galaxy many light-years distant from Earth and taken aboard the living starship Moya, whose passengers are fugitives from oppressive totalitarians known as "Peacekeepers." In "Mind the Baby," Moya surrenders her newborn "offspring" to Crais, a devious Peacekeeper, in a bid to navigate uncharted reaches of the galaxy without being molested. Successive episodes "Vitas Mortis," "Taking the Stone," and "Crackers Don't Matter" show Moya and the fugitives continuing their odyssey -- which, not surprisingly, becomes increasingly dangerous. Farscape boasts production values and special effects that are more impressive than you'll find in some feature films, but it's the superior scripting and fully defined characters that really distinguish this series from the space operas of yore. Creator Rockne S. O'Bannon deserves most of the credit for keeping Farscape on track, and the fruits of his labors are here in the form of four particularly memorable episodes. Moreover, this box set features a dazzling array of supplemental features, including commentaries, deleted scenes, conceptual artwork, a "dictionary" of alien slang, and a biography for the Crichton character.
