Farscape, Vol. 1

Overview

Containing the episodes "Premiere" and "I, E.T., plus a variety of extras, the first volume of the Farscape DVD series provides a solid introduction to the series. Each of the two episodes includes un-aired footage and has a commentary by producers and actors. The DVD transfers are sourced from pristine materials and look quite good throughout, with strong colors and good blacks. The disc itself is single-sided and dual-layered, and ADV makes full use of the available space to keep the bitrate up, so that ...

Overview

Containing the episodes "Premiere" and "I, E.T., plus a variety of extras, the first volume of the Farscape DVD series provides a solid introduction to the series. Each of the two episodes includes un-aired footage and has a commentary by producers and actors. The DVD transfers are sourced from pristine materials and look quite good throughout, with strong colors and good blacks. The disc itself is single-sided and dual-layered, and ADV makes full use of the available space to keep the bitrate up, so that compression artifacts are absent. The show is certainly handsome and benefits, for the most part, from DVD presentation, though a few of the CGI effects show up from time to time. Audio is presented in Dolby 5.1 and Dolby Surround versions. The 5.1 mix is good, with solid directional effects and excellent bass. The Surround mix is somewhat more brash, with some harshness to it. The first commentary track features Ben Browder, Rockne S. O'Bannon, and executive producer Brian Henson, while the second features Claudia Black and Anthony Simcoe. Both commentary tracks are lively, informative, and entertaining, with few gaps and lots of fast talking. Other extras include a "video profile" of the Crichton character, an image gallery, a conceptual drawings gallery, and a making-of documentary that gives a little bit of background beyond the usual promotional puff -- though it's certainly a puff piece.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
The demise of the various Star Treks and Babylon 5, combined with network television's belabored push towards "realism" for everyone who thinks Dharma & Greg is particularly real, has left a void in the world of science-fiction programs. Filling that void is the Sci-Fi Channel's best-rated program, Farscape, a spunky, fast-paced adventure, relying on the tried-and-true theme of Man Far From Home When He Doesn't Want To Be. A new series of DVDs and videos of the show, presented in glorious surround sound, offer a fresh look at Farscape for those who haven't unearthed it on Sci-Fi and may pose a threat to the booming VHS bootlegging market that has thrived among the show's devoted fans. "Premiere" introduces us to John Crichton Ben Browder, a clean-cut American astronaut with great teeth, who is testing an experimental spacecraft, using the earth's gravitational pull to slingshot him into more distant reaches. A wormhole, however, drags him smack into the middle of an interstellar war and onto a renegade prison transport ship, operated by a cadre of unusual escapees: D'argo Anthony Simcoe a tank of a man from a warrior race; Zhaan Virginia Hey, The Road Warrior an azure, scaly high-priestess with a very gentle side; and Rygel XVI, a deposed royal who looks like a cross between Norman Mailer and a walrus the puppets and creatures are done by the always adroit folks at the Jim Henson Creature Shop. Uncertain of his place either on this ship or in the universe, Chrichton is forced to flee the Peacekeepers, a dominant, black-clad force in the universe, after accidentally killing the brother of a general. While running away, Crichton and his new companions take on a new traveler, a feisty peacekeeper pilot named Aeryn Sun Claudia Black, Pitch Black who is none too eager to join the band of renegades. In "I, E.T.," the prison ship lands in a swamp on a planet not unlike Louisiana to block a Peacekeeper beacon, and Crichton learns what it's like to be on the other side of a close encounter, while still trying to figure out where home is. Science-fiction vet Rockne S. O'Bannon Alien Nation crafts Farscape as a smart, lively voyage. The aliens have depth and so does the space they occupy: who knows how long it may take Crichton to reach home, but the gulf in between seems very exciting to search through.
