    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.

    Default Farscape DVDs: Starburst Edition vs Boxed Sets?

    I have a question for anyone who can answer:

    What is the differences between the regular Farscape Boxed Sets from the Starburst Edition DVDs?

    Details are important.

    Thank you,
    Mattathias

    For one thing, they are much cheaper. Much!!! And, they have new special features on them apparently.

    I believe the Starburst editions are just a few episodes of the season, not all of them.

    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.

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

    Useful information. I've only seen an episode or two of Farscape, so I was thinking about blind buying one of the SEs.

    Yep, good info. I'd also like to know if the Starbusrt editions (with all the content described by Formerhost) are available in Region 2? Or is it purely a Region 1 release?

    Thanks.

    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

    Its bad enough when movies are released in multiple versions, doing it with a show is just unprofessional.

    Me too since my TV set is broken and I need to have it repaired. I have two DVD-+RW drives in my PC, one for Region 1 and the second for Region 2 DVDs. WinDVD rules!

    Thank you, Formerhost, as well as others who gave information.

    I intend to buy them instead of the Boxsets (which I initially was going to purchase).

    I will buy the the rest boxsets from UK after I got season 4. Its very good quality, looks pretty good, but maybe one day, when I have money left, I will also buy the Starburst Editions.
    But first of all the show is all I need.
    That's all folks.

    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

    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.
