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 complete run of the fourth and final season episodes collected here. 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 "Crichton Kicks," John is reunited with Chiana (Gigi Edgley) and Rygel (Jonathan Hardy) to prevent a dying Leviathan from being captured by mercenaries. In the two-part "What Was Lost" arc, Interion scientists conduct an archeological dig on a planet where the rest of the crew is reunited in "Sacrifice," and in "Resurrection," the crew must stop the Peacekeepers from finding an alien weapon of mass destruction. Mercenaries capture Rygel after the crew is forced to make an emergency landing on a planet in "Lava's a Many Splendored Thing." Aeryn (Claudia Black) returns to the ship in "Promises," but she's been affected by heat delirium. In "Natural Election" Moya is attacked by a strange space organism. John and Chiana are trapped in a virtual world controlled entirely by the unstable Stark (Paul Goddard) in "John Quixote." In "I Shrink Therefore I Am" bounty hunters out to capture John shrink the crew. Aeryn is accused of killing a planet's leader in "A Prefect Murder." In "Coup by Clam" the crew is poisoned by an alien doctor. "Unrealized Reality" finds Crichton falling into a wormhole and being captured by an inter-dimensional being. In "Kansas" John returns to Earth only to discover he is actually 15 years in the past. And John finally returns home in "Terra Firma" to open Earth's eyes to upcoming danger. In "Twice Shy" Chiana buys a slave girl from a passing ship, but the girl turns out to be more than the crew expected. Crichton, D'Argo (Anthony Simcoe), and Rygel are brought to a training camp and discover the Peacekeeper who murdered D'Argo's wife in "Mental as Anything." In "Bringing Home the Beacon" the female members of the crew visit a space station and happen upon a secret meeting between Grayza (Rebecca Riggs) and the Scarrans. John seeks the location of Katratzi by watching the broadcast of a television show from Earth in "A Constellation of Doubt." In "Prayer," Aeryn is interrogated by the Scarrans. The collection begins to conclude with the three-part arc "We're So Screwed," starting with "Fetal Attraction," wherein the crew makes an attempt to rescue Aeryn after she is discovered at a Scarran station. In "Hot to Katratzi" Crichton and Co. get into the middle of a Peacekeeper/Scarran summit to try and rescue Scorpius (Wayne Pygram), who is being tortured by Stark. And in "La Bomba," the crew decides to side with Scorpius and try to destroy the source of the Scarrans' power. And finally, in the pivotal series finale, "Bad Timing," the Moya's crew learns, to their horror, that the Scarrans have dispatched a ship to Earth. Farscape boasts production values and special effects that are more impressive than 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 these memorable episodes.
