Seven episodes crammed onto two discs is an impressive feat, and the price — equivalent to what I originally paid for the disc containing "Premiere" and "I, E.T." way back in 2000 — can't be argued with. Gathered here is the first third of the inaugural season of Farscape, including the aforementioned episodes as well as "Exodus from Genesis," "Throne for a Loss," "Back and Back and Back to the Future" and "Thank God It's Friday . . . Again." Although the show is still finding its legs at this stage, there's not a stinker in the lot, and these episodes serve to introduce newcomers to Farscape to the strange and wonderful universe of this landmark science fiction series.
I love Farscape, and it is firmly ensconced as my all-time favorite SF television program (just edging out Babylon 5 and Quark). I also have a particular affection for Gilina--the PK Tech Girl--and still harbor resentment at the pointless way the series writers killed her off at the end of season one. They do get points for bringing her back in the episode "Jon Quixote," but still. I miss the dynamic she brought to the John-Aeryn relationship when she was around.
