Farscape: The Complete Series

 (TV) (1999-2003)

Screenshots from Farscape: The Complete Seasons Blu-ray

Farscape features a diverse ensemble of characters who are initially escaping from corrupt authorities called Peacekeepers. The protagonists live inside a giant space-dwelling creature named Moya, which serves as their ship. In the first episode, they are joined by the main character, John Crichton (Ben Browder), a modern-day American astronaut who accidentally flew into the entrance of a wormhole near Earth during an experimental test flight. On the same day, another stranger is picked up by Moya: a stranded Peacekeeper named Aeryn Sun (Claudia Black) who appears human. Despite his best intentions, John does make a few major enemies; the primary of these is known as Scorpius. There are a few stand-alone plots, but the show gradually unfolds progressive arcs beginning with their recapture by the Peacekeepers, followed by John's search to find another wormhole back to Earth, and an eventual arms race for wormhole technology.

Farscape: The Complete Series Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Farscape is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Cinedigm with AVC encoded 1080p transfers in 1.33:1 for the series' first three seasons and 1.78:1 for the last season (I"ve included screencaps of both aspect ratios so that you can see the difference). Farscape was filmed in Australia and presented there in the PAL standard. The series' creators are insisting that the 35mm prints are nowhere to be found, plus the visual effects were created in SD (meaning they'd have to be recreated for a true HD master), so this is an upconversion which unfortunately does not look great a lot of the time. I'd actually rank the 1.33:1 seasons at somewhere between a 2.5 and 3.0 and the fourth season moderately higher at between a 3.0 and 3.5, for an average score of 3.0. The image is frequently fuzzy, with less than appealing color and some very spotty contrast. The series is often quite dark, regularly taking place within Moya's labyrinthine confines, and crush is rampant throughout these sequences. Things have at least a moderate improvement in the final season of the series, though even at a wider aspect ratio, the image is still distressingly soft a lot of the time, with little of the pop that one would hope for with a series of this relatively recent vintage and one which boasts such an impressive production design and sometimes staggering visual effects. In fact it's the visual effects that probably come off best in the series, with the animated sequences of Moya or other interstellar sequences achieving a modicum of clarity and precision which the rest of this presentation lacks.



Farscape: The Complete Series Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Much more impressive is Farscape's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix, which crackles with intensity, some fantastic LFE and relatively consistent surround activity, at least within the confines of a weekly television series. Dialogue is pretty uniformly anchored to the front three channels, but in terms of sound effects, which are plentiful and sometimes quite fanciful, and the synth-heavy score from composer Guy Gross, surround channels are used with a fair degree of regularity. Effects populate discrete channels quite a bit of the time and there are some nice whooshing pans as spacecraft flit about outer space. The best moments are in the series' many action sequences, when things get quite lively and explosions, gunfire and other propulsive effects zing through the soundfield with excellent fidelity and some great impact. The overall feel of this series from a sound design perspective can be just a tad busy at times, though the DTS track maintains excellent clarity and precision even in the noisiest moments.
