Fans of "Farscape" who haven't already snapped up the show on DVD will get a second chance Nov. 17 when A&E Home Entertainment releases Farscape: The Complete Series Megaset, just in time for the show's 10th anniversary. The 25-DVD set will include all 88 episodes (but sadly, not the followup TV movie The Peacekeeper Wars, the rights to which are owned by another studio) for $149.95. Extras include commentary on 29 episodes with the cast and crew, several documentaries and retrospective featurettes, more than 90 minutes of deleted scenes, behind-the-scenes interviews and more.
Also due Nov. 17 are individual boxed sets for the four "Farscape" sesaons at $49.95 each.
The series chronicled the adventures of John Crichton, an astronaut from Earth who is sent through a wormhole to the other side of the universe. The show ran from 1999 to 2003 on Sci Fi Channel, which creatures designed by Jim Henson's Creature Shop. The show starred Ben Browder and Claudia Black, who later co-starred together on "Stargate SG-1."
