This first DVD set for Farscape's stunning third season delivers the following episodes:
Season Of Death - Crichton lies on the operating table having lost his mind and his love. Scorpius attempts a brave escape, but the crew of Moya stand between him and his exit. As things become desperate for all concerned, an unexpected ally arrives.
Suns and Lovers - With Moya tethered to a damaged commerce station, and in great danger from the solar storms outside, it will take the whole of Moya's crew working together to escape. But one of them has experienced the ultimate betrayal by those closest to him.
Self Inflicted Wounds, Part 1: Could'a, Would'a, Should'a - Moya is seriously injured when a wormhole opens and a ship spears the Leviathan vessel. As the two crews converge, it is revealed that only some of them can survive if they do separate the vessels. And as Moya is the most damaged, it remains the obvious choice.
Self Inflicted Wounds, Part 2: Wait for the Wheel - Moya remains trapped in the wormhole, and her crew must abandon her before they all perish. Then disturbing evidence comes to light that affects everyone's decision - but it may be too late to save the doomed Moya.
...Different Destinations - A visit to a memorial site proves to be less restful than hoped for when Crichton, Stark, Aeryn and Jool are transported back in time to the battle that inspired the site. In terrible danger, their actions have a deadly effect through time.
The set also includes the following extras:
Farscape Undressed - the episode-length documentary presented by Ben Browder (John Crichton) and Claudia Black (Aeryn Sun). This special aired directly before "Season of Death" premiered in the US, and has never before been seen on UK TV!
Info-Pods - New for this season's DVDs. They are the *whole shebang* on a character, including biographies and personal galleries - and where possible - interviews. The first two are Aeryn Sun and Zhaan (and the Aeryn one features an interview with Claudia Black).
Guy Gross Featurette - the series composer talks about his inspirations behind the Season Three theme tune, and takes us through how he did it.
Concept Gallery - Around 20 high-quality images of behind-the-scenes images of make-up and set design, costume tests and set photography.
Original SciFi Channel Promos - Hot-foot from the States, these trailers are how the show is promo'd in the US.
Farscape Facts - pages of background information on each episode, on-set gossip and tit-bits that you probably didn't know about each recording!
Also available on 18th March will be a special Deluxe Edition, strictly limited to a run of 2500!
The Deluxe Edition comes in a beautifully-packaged black collector's box themed around John Crichton, with a personal item of his within.
As well as a personal item, it will also contain spectacular lithographic prints of design for the show, with an album included to hold the entire collection. It also contains the DVD that comes out on the same day in the original packaging, so you can take it out and stick it on your shelf.
