TvShowsOnDvd.com reported today that the DVD of the recent SciFi channel mini series, Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars, is on its way. Full report here (http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/newsitem.cfm?NewsID=2332).

Retailing for just under $20 in the states, the mini will hit the streets on January 18, next year. Single disk with some extras (unsure if it is a DVD-9 or DVD-12 - with extras on 'the flip side')

Cover art:

Thanks! I'll definitely be getting this one. The extras sound good...

*The Making of The Peacekeeper Wars " (30-minutes)
*Interactive Conceptual Art Gallery
*Authentic Production Storyboards
*Spacecraft Gallery
*And much, much more!

The "Making of" sounds cool. I hope we also get commentaries, that would be great!

Besides the nice little box, does anyone know if there are differences between these two? The boxset is a lot more expensive, but I just want to make sure I'm not missing anything before I get the Starburst edition. I tried contacting ADV about it, but they never answered.

Go with the Starburst edition.
Apperently it has newly recored commentaries on it in addition to the old ones.
So that means more extra material for you. Plus it's cheaper and that's good.

The only down side is that you have to wait to get all seasons since they're in the middle of releasing them.

I'm buying Starburst. I could never force myself to pony up $150 for a boxed set. The new edition is a bargain ($75 or less per season), plus it has more bonus features.

The only playback issue I've run into so far is that every episode is default to play with the captions ON (for my player, at least). It's very annoying to have to go into the player menu and turn off subtitles every time.

Thank you,
Mattathias

The details are:

Starburst edition contain 14 COMPLETELY NEW episode commentaries recorded by Claudia, Ben, David Kemper and Rockne O'Bannon in summer of 2004 EXCLUSIVELY for this edition. Of course, these new commentaries are the addition to previously released ones, which are included in this edition too. Another thing, there are more new interviews, also recorded in 2004 (Brian Henson or Virginia Hey for example). Guy Gross (composer) talks about music for several episodes, it's also a new thing. Also, they dug up from Henson Company archives stuff never released before - rough recordings before ADR (Additional Dialogue Recording) sessions, you can hear in them puppeteers talking for Rygel and Pilot, not Lani and Jonathan. And with all these ADDITIONAl extras Starburst is really cheap, much cheaper than previous editions. And, what's really important, there are subtitles included for people with hearing troubles.

Each season (there are 3 FULL seasons released now, the first volume of 4th season will be available June 13th) consists of 3 volumes, each volume contains 7-8 episodes plus Extra features.

It's Region 1, but with multiregional DVD player and region-free software or more than one DVD drives in your PC it's not a problem. And it's available on Amazon UK :)

The one thing (and it's the only one thing) which I'm angry with Contender UK (I also own all four seasons boxsets from UK and now I'm adding Starburst Edition to it just for the new commentaries, which are just brilliant) about is the lack of English subtitles for their Farscape DVDs. I really don't believe it was too expensive for them to include them. Sony UK subtitled even extra features (commentaries and another extras) at their season 9 SG-1 DVDs.

On the other hand, there is "Farscape: Undressed" included in UK season 3 DVDs, and ADV Films wasn't able to include it in their DVDs due to some legal problems with SciFi Channel :S

Wrong. FULL seasons from the start with the new (and old) extras.

It was this part: "each volume contains 7-8 episodes plus Extra features." that tripped me up. It looked like they were only doing a handful of episodes per season as opposed to the whole season. They wrote it poorly.

Bumping this slightly; the local Suncoast video store is going out of business and had some steep discounts on box sets; 40% off so I picked up the first two volumes of season one and the third volume of season three in the Starburst collection. Sadly, that's all they had but for $15, I took them. :D Three sets for less than the cost of what one set used to cost. If only they had the rest. :(

Does anyone know what edition are covers found on cdcovers.cc as described below?
They are region 1 but haven't seen them yet in any store (online)
are they even official?

http://cdcovers.cc/dvd_f.php
2 steps for those not familiar with cdcovers.cc
1) just click on any title and type "farscape boxset"
2) click any volume (1-8) then "[front]" below titles and "Download Cover" even lower on the page

there are 8 volumes, 2 for each season and put in order they spell Farscape by side, these are the ones I'm interested in.
are they possibly the normal USA versions? as in 2 boxsets in each "the complete season X" volume?
altough I doubt it, because volume 8 has the peacekeeper wars on it too.

thanx a lot

Sorry, the cover art doesn't look familiar to me. You could try asking at one of the Farscape forums (eg. terrafirmascapers.com, watchfarscape.com). Someone there may know.

Although, personally I recommend the Starburst editions as they have all the extras from the previous releases, plus a bunch of new commentaries. They're also considerably cheaper.

Yeah, they are. Sony has bought the rights to distribute the Farscape DVDs, so ADV who previously held the rights aren't releasing any more. Currently season 1 of the Starburst Editions are out of stock everywhere, you can still buy them on Ebay for exorbitant prices though. I hope Sony re-releases the DVDs soon because Farscape is losing a potential new audience by not having the S1 DVDs readily available for a decent price.

I think the Sony deal is a great news for Scape fans (not for me as I already have the Starbursts) I am almost positive that they will be releasing season sets, and cheaper than the current prices (and maybe even a complete series set). The only possible problem is that they might not be able to get the rights for all the extras, but who knows.

You can, but the used S1 copies are still being sold for around five times the original retail price. People are profiteering because the S1 Starbursts are rare at the moment. S2-S4 are still available, although I'd say they'll be out of stock relatively soon as well. You can pick them up for around $14 per edition at DVD Pacific: http://www.dvdpacific.com/search.asp?title=farscape+starburst&imageField.x=9&imageField.y=12

I'd say the best bet for season 1 is to wait for the Sony release, although there has been no announcement about when.

Hmm. I bought the first 3 volumes from some random guy on eBay (UK) for about £25 total. :confused: Double sided DVDs though. I don't much care for that, i'm always terrified i'm gonna scratch them. (Hence i'm glad my season 2 ones were single sided. (S3 and 4 i bought the UK boxsets (special offer) in case you were wondering.))

The 1st releases of some Starburst dvds were double sided. All my S1 discs are double sided and the 1st set from S2. I think future re-releases were single sided but I don't know when that happened.

Just a heads up that ADV has now got the Starburst Editions Season 2 and 3 on sale for $12.00 US an edition (remember 3 editions per season) and Season 4 is on sale for $14.00 US an edition.

Good prices. :) Especially for those who have been waiting...

Just remember - ADV will probably lose their rights to Season 2 in December, so if you want the Starburst Editions at a good price - now is the time to buy.

(Also - ADV charges *sigh* shipping and handling. But still worth it.)

I'm a little worried with this whole Sony situation. Sure, there's a chance the DVDs will become widely available at a good price, and better quality than ADV could do. Then again, Sony could change their mind, delay it for a dozen years, or cancel it outright. I'll feel a lot better when/if Sony announces either a release date or something more firm than what we have now. Companies buy up rights to things all the time, it doesn't always work out the way we hope it will.

Great points why did they buy them to begin with if they are not going to release them there is something I am missing something they are not saying right now I wish I had money and a Credit card but the reason I am waiting cuz I will probably get Amazon gift certificates for Xmas ant that's the only way I can get DVDs at the moment

It worries me too frankly. They bought the rights but have so far failed to make any kind of announcement about a release date or how they intend to package it or what their plans are.

My guess is they're holding on to the series as it has a huge following and they want that following to go Blu-Ray when an HD release comes out and by releasing it themselves they can guarantee it will be a BR exclusive. At least that seems the likeliest case as there's no reason for them to pay for the rights and not release anything, after all, the show has seen 2 releases already so it's not like they can bury it as a form of competition.

Sadly I'm one of those that wasn't able to pick up the releases while they were out as I was strapped for cash. I was looking to pick them up now only to find they are out of print and hard to come by. So I guess I'm stuck waiting to see what Sony is going to do.

If Sony were to release Farscape in HD, it would certainly be BluRay, the only problem is Farscape would be way, way, way, way.....way down low on the list of BluRay releases. Assuming BluRay wins/survives the Format War, I would not expect to see Farscape for 5+ years, if ever.

I'm guessing we have one prime window of opportunity: regular DVD, and it had better happen in the next 2-3 years or it will never happen. That's why I'm nervous. It's not at all unrealistic that Sony could buy up all the rights and never make a single DVD. It sound crazy, but that's how things work.

On positive note, if Sony does release Farscape on DVD, it will be way better quality than ADV's releases.

Well, It's got more commentaries than the normal boxsets, which I am borrowing from my uncle. I want them to just release some of the Starburst Editions, cos I wanna watch commentaries! Only FS commentary I've watched is the Mind The Baby one.

Sony are being idiots like the Sci-fi Channel in Australia. I dunno.

Is it the same commentaries as Starburst? Or is it more like this:
Boxsets: "Standard" commentaries
Starburst: Standard + new

Well, they're not losing money, they're just not making any money. Let's face it, much as we love Farscape, it obviously wasn't a smash hit for ADV video. Sony bought the rights, they may or may not release a line of Farscape DVDs, the jury is still out on that.

As many of you know, Sony began buying the DVD rights to Farscape from ADV about 9 months ago. I can't find anything that says Sony is moving forward with a DVD release. Anyone heard anything about it? The folks in some of the Farscape forums are feeling like Sony's about to restart the Farscape series.

I on the other hand, am taking the more pessimistic view: I'm starting to think Sony is going to shelve the Farscape DVD rights. It could be years or never, before we see the DVDs rereleased. I hope I'm wrong (I often am!) but the more time drags by with no announcement, the more my hope sinks.

So, anyone with any info, be sure post it to this thread. We can at least follow the progress, if any, of this situation.

The Signal
January 3rd, 2008, 05:24 AM
I don't keep up with Farscape news, so I could be miles off here, but, there are webisodes on the way, right? They'd be insane not to release them before the websiodes come out, but at the same time, they'd be mad to not take advantage of the hype of the webisodes to boost their sales. If they want to maximise their sales, they'll release probably a couple of months before the webisodes are released, feeding off of the hype.

I hope they do, because as much as I've always enjoyed 'scape, I'm not looking to pay £90 for a single series.

SunKrux
January 3rd, 2008, 11:18 AM
Considering that the writer's strike in the US is still ongoing, there is no set time on WHEN the webisodes will start. At the con in November, Rockne said 2008, but if the writer's strike lasts much longer it will no doubt be pushed back since Rockne is striking as well.

So as of right now, it's all up in the air.

As far as Sony's logic behind the DVD rights, it's tough to know what they're thinking. They're so big that our version of logic might not apply to their way of doing things. Maybe someone has handpicked Farscape and will guide it along to DVD releases, or maybe some division honcho just said,
"go out and buy up the rights to x number of SciFi shows/movies not currently in wide release. Maybe next year we'll choose 1 or 2 out of that pool for release"

I'm not trying to be pessimistic, but that's always a possibility. I'm hoping that someone from Sony will just give us a hint. Actually, maybe I'll email them. Probably stupid and pointless of me, but it does cost me nothing except a few minutes of my time.

I hear ya, but once you've downloaded the eps from iTunes on to your harddrive, you can (if you have the software and blank DVDs) burn them onto a DVD and watch them on your tv. :D

Who knows, if enough people ask for it, maybe the extras can be added to iTunes.

I was merely offering an alternative to waiting for Sony to get off their eemas and produce more DVDs.

Sure, if you want to spend the time, although when all is said and done you're not saving a lot of money, especially if the Sony DVDs are more reasonably priced as they're expected to be.

And while I do that for a number of shows etc., with certain ones, like Farscape, I want the artwork on the boxes and most importantly, as you mentioned, the extras that come with it.

Well considering that earlier in this thread the email from Sony pretty much states they have no plans now to produce DVDs of FS, iTunes is a good way for folks in the US looking for the S1 eps to get them, since the DVDs that are out now are so expensive that it's hard for folks to afford them.

How much time would it take to email Henson and iTunes to suggest they offer the extras from the DVDs as well? Are you writing a novel? ;)

Yes. And to find the address and write the letter - too much work. Plus I and many others don't use itunes. And while I do have a DVD recorder, not everyone does. Not everyone wants to watch it on a computer or knows how to hook a computer up to a tv if they don't etc. etc. etc.

Sarcasm is intended. Sorry. Had to be done. That last comment just screamed for it.

Besides, I already have the DVDs. Like I said, I prefer store bought, official packaging and everything that comes with it. While I have nothing against them being sold on i-tunes, the bigger the audience the better the chance for a miniseries, I don't want that to be all there is, however far in the future new ones may released. Then again, I also buy cds. The sound quality is much better.

So just because you and many others don't use iTunes you'd rather not go to them and say "Hey, it would be great if you did add the extras from the dvds"? Understood. Way to help encourage getting more exposure for FS, regardless of what you personally do.

That's great that you already have the DVDS, I have them too, but I'm willing to promote the iTunes deal as well, especiallys since it really looks like Sony is NOT going to produce any new DVDs anytime soon. Original packaging is wonderful I agree, but for fans who can't afford the hellaciously priced original S1 DVDs that are available on eBay, iTunes is a great way for them to get the SHOW so they can watch it. I fear a lot of people are getting turned off of wanting to watch FS or even support it because the S1 sets are so spendy. I know I would.

It's just another option, I'm not saying anyone here has to take it, but don't shot it down because you'd rather have the original packaging or don't use iTunes. This is about getting the show we all LOVE more viewers, so it shouldn't matter HOW the viewers show up.

Yes actually I am getting a kick back, jealous? :P As for marking my posts to suit your needs...I'll think about it. :P

For me, it's about getting FS out there, doesn't matter if it's on DVD or on iTunes...get the exposure, get it out to the people. I honestly do not think that it being on iTunes - or where ever else it might show up - will hurt the chances of Sony producing more DVDs. I think they're waiting to see if it is still popular enough for them to waste their money on. Sadly right now I don't think they think it is worth wasting their money on. So....

OR the fact that it's so popular on iTunes might spark the slow arse Sony people to actually produce more DVDs.

I hope that as well, but my faith in Sony to produce anything any time soon (and I mean with in the next couple of years - and so far they're not even thinking about it) is nill. I don't think Sony cares about FS, they just wanted the rights to the DVDs now that ADV no longer has them. It kinda feels like when SciLie held the rights to it for years after it was canceled. No one could do anything with it because SciLie owned the rights. Sadly the syndication didn't work all that well because it kept getting moved around so much that people got lost and couldn't figure out what was going on.

With them being on iTunes (and available on netflix still I believe) folks can watch them in order.

My thoughts on ithe iTunes deal is it is great for those with broadband connections but it doesn't help people like me still stuck on dial up connections because high speed is still unavailable or too expensive like most of the United States. Also it doesn't help with the library project to get Farscape DVDs into local libraries to expand the fanbase.

Downloading Farscape on iTunes can probably only help get DVDs out because it will show Sony there is a demand for Farscape. As far as I can tell newvideo.com has nothing to do with Sony and only has download rights for Farscape.

If you want to take pen in hand and let Sony know you want Season 1 out on DVD Farscape Canada their address last year. Companies pay more attention if you are willing to write a real letter.

The thing is the lack of information. Sony isn't going to tell us, and in fact isn't going to respond to anything short of a letter writing campaign that numbers in the tens of thousands. Even a few thousand letters would probably not illicit a response. Maybe they're about to produce the DVDs, maybe they'll never produce the DVDs. What it all comes down to is we are like ants and they are like human beings. They take no notice of us (under normal circumstances) and their motivations are simply out of our realm of logic and understanding. We're just ants after all! ;)

We have better odds of just knowing a friend of a friend of friend who just happens to an insider to that division. The writer's strike is over, when Farscape's webisodes hit the air, I think maybe we'll find out something then. If anyone goes to any sort of SciFi Con where the former stars of Farscape are signing autographs, be sure to ask them what's the buzz--odds are they'll know something since they're connected via royalties and such.

The only people connected to FS that would know ANYTHING about the webisodes are going to be Rockne, Brian and David. The ACTORS will more than likely not know much more than we do, so please, do NOT ask them if they know what's going on. OR if they know, they may be under contract and CAN'T talk about it.

That's why I wondered how long I had to buy Season 4 as I could never find a definitive date even though I've seen some others comment that S2 expires this year, s3 next, and S4 the next year. Course I don't remember where I read that or if it was correct information.

There wasn't the official statement about it yet like it was with the first season, so we don't know for sure. Seasons 2 - 4 DVDs are still available at ADV's site, so I guess they still hold the rights for these. Sony picked the rights up for season 1 in January 2007, so my guess is that they'll probably pick the second season up at the beginning of 2009.

It's beyond my monetary means at the moment anyway, but like just about every American show minus a few unremarkable exceptions, the show isn't even available on itunes up here (thank the frakking CRTC :rolleyes:), so even those who could afford to go buying it all that way can't get it!

I don't think Sony has anything against Farscape, just that they're not excited about it like we are. They purchased the rights to Farscape, probably along with the rights to many other shows/movies. Then they decide when/if/which of those rights they will exercise. Releasing Farscape is simply an option to them, one of many. I would imagine Farscape will eventually get released, it just could be another year, it could be another 5 years.

Doesn't it hurt though to walk by the DVD aisle and see some obscure crap show with a nice new DVD boxed set of all their seasons? Some generic show that never made a ripple, just lasted 2-3 years and faded out, but for some reasons the Power That Be decide to produce the complete catalog of it instead of something like Farscape. Freaks and Geeks got the same poor treatment IMHO, no major label distributed it, the fans had to push to get a 2nd tier type company to release the DVD--much like Farscape with ADV video.

I believe Sony laboratories have a lot of work with cleaning Farscape's masters, so they can produce Blu Ray DVDs. Plus, we still didn't hear about getting rights for seasons 2 - 4.

Won't do a thing- Canadians have been clamoring ever since itunes in the USA introduced tvshows for download just to get anything at all, but due to the mixture of rights bought by Canadian broadcasters, the absolute idiocity that the CRTC continues to display through their regulations (which I think is the reason for the first point as well- but it's difficult to find any information on any of this), and who knows what else, 99% of American shows still cannot be downloaded legally in Canada. The only ones that I know of for sure that we can get are South Park, The Hills (haven't a clue what that is), and Avatar the Last Airbender. And then of course a crapload of mostly mediocre Canadian programming from CBC and CTV that's easy for us to watch anyway because anyone with a tv has CBC and most have CTV. :rolleyes: It's an absolute mess, but then corporations like Bell are crying foul and stalling internet speeds for their users when they resort to using torrents for content that simply isn't made available legally in our country- up here if you miss your show you're out of luck unless you download illegally, (or it's one of a very small handful (like Heroes) that might be broadcasted from the channel's website for a week. But when I tried that for something the video play just didn't work properly on two different computers!) and yet everyone's whining when we do because we have no other option than to wait for DVDs (which are more expensive than the US). So unfortunately the chances of us getting Farscape are extremely slim to none, because as far as I've heard itunes won't be selling tv shows or movies to us anywhere in the near future, and as I understand it's more of a problem to do with outdated regulations rather than itunes themselves. :(

And then of course a crapload of mostly mediocre Canadian programming from CBC and CTV that's easy for us to watch anyway because anyone with a tv has CBC and most have CTV. :rolleyes: It's an absolute mess, but then corporations like Bell are crying foul and stalling internet speeds for their users when they resort to using torrents for content that simply isn't made available legally in our country- up here if you miss your show you're out of luck unless you download illegally, (or it's one of a very small handful (like Heroes) that might be broadcasted from the channel's website for a week. But when I tried that for something the video play just didn't work properly on two different computers!) and yet everyone's whining when we do because we have no other option than to wait for DVDs (which are more expensive than the US). So unfortunately the chances of us getting Farscape are extremely slim to none, because as far as I've heard itunes won't be selling tv shows or movies to us anywhere in the near future, and as I understand it's more of a problem to do with outdated regulations rather than itunes themselves. :(And you absolutely do not want to know what that is! Why anyone would pay to dl that is beyond me. :S Utter drivel that is mind numbingly stupid to put it mildly. It's some kind of soapish show that shows on MTV. I only know about it b/c I watch The Soup on the E! channel which loves to make fun of it.

Anywho....

It totally sucks that our closest neighbor is subjected to such stupid regulations about legally dl'ing tv shows or viewing content on sites like skiffy, etc. You would think NAFTA could help with that. ;):D

Have no fear folks. I figured it would take Sony forever (if ever?) to release Farscape on DVD. So, I broke down last night and ordered all the DVDs except Season One on Amazon.com. Soooo, Murphy's Law should kick in within a few weeks, and Sony should suddenly announce a DVD release of all seasons, at a great price, with tons of extras! Trust me, Murphy's Law will kick in and I'll be re-buying these DVDs. No need to thank me folks. :D
No no no I tell ya when I finally get the first season a little over 200 U.S. dollars that's when the complete series with PK Wars and tons of extras will be released by Sony I tell ya. Right now I have seasons 2,3,4 and the PK wars Sony is waiting for me to buy it so Murphy can laugh at me.;)

I have both Region 1 and 2 releases of all 4 seasons (and some discs from my Region 2 release are in need of replacement) and PKW miniseries, but I'm definitely going to buy the new release from Sony or any other company (the recent rumours among Scapers at another board were that it's MGM/Fox who is going to release Farscape DVDs now) if it's going to be packed with tons of extras :D

Here you go. (http://www.amazon.com/Farscape-1999-TVseries-Blu-ray-Tilse/dp/B00198X0VI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1222814913&sr=1-1) That should work. (Course that's for the US Amazon site.)

I signed up even though, atm, I have no interest in a Blu-ray version. Just give me some regular print Season 1 dvds....

I'm on it!. I have been hoping that Farscape would make it Blu-Ray Hi-Def DVD. I will pre-order the entire collection if they decide to do it. :)

Atm, there are no plans for a re-release of the Starburst Editions.

ADV which had owned the rights to the show let their license expire so no one is producing any Farscape dvds right now. And who knows when Sony will ever get around to it.
