Farscape DVDs -- where are the season boxsets?

No, really, where are they? There's a Best Of the 1st Season which is simply an abomination, but nothing compared to the sheer blasphamy of these "volume" releases. And then they have the gall to release that overpriced Season 1 boxset! Who are these ADV sadists?

Has Farscape not suffered enough?

We get two discs per box set... 5 box sets. Or a season box set, the highest priced in the DVD market.

But I love them. The 5.1 is a bonus too.

Re: Farscape DVDs -- where are the season boxsets?

Man, I'm so pissed off. I never watched the show on TV and want to watch it on DVD. I bought the season 1 box set a while back and like it. Now there are no box sets for the other seasons.

I suppose that when I do have some dough I'll bit the bullet and buy the 2-disc sets in order, but man, that will be such a pain in the ass.

Right now, what little DVD money I do have is dedicated to DS9 and B5, whose producers had the sense to release season box sets.

Re: Farscape DVDs -- where are the season boxsets?

I've been doing a little research at the excellent TV Shows on DVD and found the release pattern -- 7 monthes after the last volume *spit* of a season is released that season's boxset is released. Soooo, the season 2 boxset should be out at the end of October.

Also found a marginally better price for it at Videoflicks.ca for $132 (Canadian)/$93 (US) -- a smidge steaper than the X-Files boxsets but do-able since I went for the cheaper region 1 Buffy season 4 set and have stopped buying the X-Files after the 7th season.

Thanks. At least the set will come out eventually, which makes me kinda glad I haven't started buying season 2 yet.

At this rate, with 4 seasons of Farscape, I should be finished watching the series 2 and a half years.

It is an excellent place. I've gone there quite a bit. They were one of the first to know about the Earth: final conflict box set.

No wait, my bad, the last season 2 volume came out on 2/25/2003 so we should see the season 2 boxset at the end of September.

How much are complete seasons in the US? They're 100 in the UK (US$150).

I paid about that much for season 1, maybe a little less.

Every other TV show's DVD season sets are cheaper, following the classic economic practice of pricing things in bulk for less. But no, not Farscape.

Re: Farscape DVDs -- where are the season boxsets?

Well, compared to what it cost to acquire the whole season in the original 11 volumes, S1 of Farscape *did* come for a volume discount.

I went and looked at that TV on DVD web site. I found out that S1 of Soap is comming out. The list price is only $29.95 for all 25 1/2 hour (well, 22 minutes without the commercials) episodes. I know that Soap was extremely silly, farcical humor ..... but it always made me laugh (at least for the first season and a half or 2 seasons; it went downhill after a while). At that price I don't think I'll be able to resist buying it. Or maybe I'll put off buying it and put it on my X-mas list.
