Farscape is excellent, Case still problematic

"The Farscape episodes are excellent and deserve 5 stars.
The case however is still problematic. The Single sided disks are an improvement, but the little pieces of plastic that holds the DVDs break in transit and 2 DVDs ended rattling around in the case. Same problem with other Season 3 cases. Which is why in summary the collection only gets 4 stars."
Finaly one sided disks for this series

"I love farscape but i missed it the first time around. i happened to catch the complete four season series (88 hours)in two weeks when they had a marathon on the Sci-Fi channel leading up to the Peacekeeper Wars mini series. I started collecting the Starburst edition disks because lets face it, it's better to spend less than sixty dollars for a whole season than one hundred and twenty dollars for a whole season. However the first six starburst edition DVD collections had alot of problems. I personaly had to return four out of the six collections back to the store because they didn't play right. season 2 collection 3 ended my relationship with Best Buy because they wouldn't exchange it. I will be buying my copies from Amazon exclusivly from now on because i had no problems getting an exchange from Amazon. You know Amazon isn't going to stop carrying the disk three days later. The best part is that seasons 3 and 4 will come on four single sided disks instead of the cheaply made two sided disks. Im hoping this will end the problem i was having with the old disks.
I gave this product 4 stars out of 5. The Farscape series it'self is a 5 star product. I took one star away just because the package is wider so they don't look right on the shelf next to seasons 1 and 2. i also don't care for how the disks are held in the package. You have to take the top disk out to get to the second disk. They are kinda stacked on top of each other. It's a minor irritant at best. Im sure they are going to be easyer to take care of than those double sided disks at least.
Added after viewing disks: On the third season they got rid of the production notes that you saw on the previous disks. Instead they put some awfull Sci-fi network commercials for the shows. i rather enjoyed the production notes but the commercials don't do a thing for me. The quality of the actual disk is 100% better than the double sided disks."
Disk change was because. . .

"of the poor quality of the DVD 18s, those notoriously horrid double sided pieces of crap. There have been tons of problems concerning damage to these double sided disks, specifically the Farscape Starburst Editions and the show American Gothic. The change was welcome, simply because I had received one of those screwed up disks, and I would have liked it if they had not been damaged. If your disk is damaged, return it or buff it. Unfortunately, when the 18s get damaged bad enough, they are useless, and they are damaged VERY easily."
