A fantastic start to Farscape's third season!

"This DVD set will bring you the first four episodes of Farscape's third season. In season's one and two, Farscape's first few episodes were a mixed bag of good to mediocre installments. That trend ends with the first four episodes of the third season. The following is a brief summary and review of each:Season of Death-The season premiere sees Crichton left incapacitated, while the rest of the crew attempt to save him. That becomes difficult when a Scarren arrives on the scene looking for Crichton, while at the same time, Scorpius manipulates the situation behind the scenes. This episode also sees Crichton confront and win a victory of the neural clone in his head, and the return of a friend thought to be dead by the crew (though we the fans knew she couldn't be really dead). This is an action packed adventure episode with compelling emotional drama, and one of Farscape's best installments.Suns and Lovers-D'Argo intends to ask Chiana to marry him, but finds out she has been sleeping with D'Argo's son, Jothee, sending D'Argo and his crewmates on an emotional roller coaster. In the meantime, Crichton and crew attempt to stop a religious fanatic from destroying a station full of people, and on the way, Aeryn and Crichton have a discussion about relieving some tensions. All in all, a bit of a soap opera like episode, but still an excellent episode.Self Inflicted Wounds, Parts 1&2-This two part adventure sees Moya collide and become entangled with an alien ship that travels through wormholes. Crichton attempts to use the opportunity to learn about wormholes, but things get tense when a monster appears on the scene and Moya is sabotaged by an apparently invisible opponent. In order for the crew to escape, on the crew must sacrifice his or her life to save everyone else. This story was a little difficult to follow at times, but was an incredibly compelling drama with plenty of action along the way. The end of the story will leave you reeling from the emotional impact.All of these episodes are definitely representatives of some of Farscape's trully excellent work, with Season of Death being an example of Farscape at its best. Don't miss this set of fantastic Farscape episodes!"
Farscape hits its stride

"With season 3 we witness the collison of the bulk of the conflicts at the end of two: Crichton fights and wins a Pyretic victory over "Harvey" the neural clone of Scorpi flitting about in his head; Someone close to the crew dies and there are some unexpected departures. I'd have to agree that Season of Death is one of the show's strongest opening episodes. It manages to build on the established story arcs of both seasons 1 and 2. The writing became more consistent as the character's backstories finally stablized. That also gave the actor's considerably more confidence in their roles as well. The visuals are, as always stunning.The arrival on the production staff of a number of Next Generation and DS9 vets (including Richard Manning and Naren Shanker) also brought considerable depth and experience to the production side. While staff writers like Andrew Prowse have done a terrific job with the series, the Next Gen folks provided a different perspective that allowed the conflicts and emotional attachments of the characters additional depth.The DVD's have been improving since the season one batch. Season two still had a number of great extras and the main issue--the DVD menu--has been improved somewhat as well. My only complaint is the focus on a bit too many bottle shows during season three. I realize it's a way to save money and budget out for the bigger episodes but, well, Moya's confined space makes it a bit difficult to continue to come up with strong story ideas. Still, to their credit, the Farscape production crew, staff and actors manage to pull it off. If you're checking out the series for the first time, I'd suggest going back to the highlight set for season one (or better yet pick up the entire boxed set) and then move forward. There's a number of loose plot ends that are tied up in both seasons 2 & 3."
What can you say. It's Farscape

"The beginning of the third season of Farscape produced some of the best episodes of the series. To me, this is one of the most entertaining and well made science fiction series ever produced. It was extremely disappointing to find that it was cancelled. However, the DVD collections of all the seasons is something that every fan will want. Admittedly, some episodes are more interesting than others, but each tells a small part of the Farscape saga and is well worth watching. The interpersonal relationships continue to develop and we see some of the strangest aliens ever seen on a tv screen. Let's hope that someone decides to bring this series back with all the characters and story lines intact."
