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 third-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." This set kicks off with "I-Yensch, You-Yensch," in which D'Argo and Rygel meet with Scorpius and Braca to negotiate Crichton's safe passage onto the Command Carrier. The two-parter "Into the Lion's Den" follows the drama on Scorpius's Command Carrier, where Crichton gets involved in wormhole research. And in "Dog with Two Bones," the Season 3 finale, Crichton once again flirts with his dream of finally returning home. 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.
