today, giving some extra details on the season 4 UK DVD releases.
In addition, the release date for Double DVD Box Set 4.1 is now officially confirmed for 24th February
retailing at £24.99
(MSRP). The set will include the first five episodes of season 4 ("Crichton Kicks", "What Was Lost" Parts 1 & 2, "Lava's a Many Splendored Thing" and "Promises") in anamorphic widescreen. Extras include an Anthony Simcoe interview, a "story so far" feature, concept galleries, episode facts and deleted scenes.
Here are Lee's comments:
* I should have approved artwork for you in a day or two. The first release has Chiana on the cover, and looks VERY sexy. I went for a look that was between the Season One box set, crossed with Season Two. So they're textured yet coloured. You'll see.
* Extras: we have confirmed an Anthony Simcoe interview (yet to be approved, though), am working on a 'Story so Far' feature, galleries Facts and Deleted Scenes. What I couldn't get were the Sci-Fi trailers this time around, and commentaries. The latter i'm not giving up on; the problem is the actors are even less willing to do it now, and there's no staff around to 'manage' them (read 'hit them over the head until they did it')so it's proving even harder than last year. I am, of course, gutted.
* For lunch, I've got a cheese salad and am currently listening to Girls Aloud. For anything but Farscape, I have no taste.
* Menus. Oh, the menus! We had to ditch everything we did for S3 because the show is in widescreen now. Heheh. Thus Lee applying for a HUGE budget for redoing them, and it getting approved. 3D! Rendered! Moving! Sex-on-a-stick! They're amazing! I'm very very happy.
* I've been working on these S4 releases so long that everyone's taken to calling them VDVDVDVDVDVDVDVDVDV's.
* Deluxe sets. Alas, we won't be doing them this time around due to the sheer time it took up each month; we can't spare it any more. I'm really sorry, but it was between that and me going home at night, and I chose the latter. But there will be retailer exclusives (postcards, mousemats, keyrings, hopefully) via your typical high street stores to quell your urges. Check out WHSmiths and MVC in particular, but I am trying to set something up with TV's 'the interweb' companies such as Play and such. Keep your eye out.
Don't forget, you can pre-order this DVD now in the UK DVD Section
of the Farscape World Store
