    I caught a coupla episodes of this back in the day and thought it was pretty cool. But it's weird--seasons 2-4 and the movie are on DVD, but not the first season. What gives?

    Stargate SG1 has ended, though there are two TV movies coming out, and Atlantis is due to start it's fourth season in September (and it better hurry up cause the cliffhanger was a pain :( )

    "The series will expand the Farscape universe, but the network had no announcements on casting or premiere dates."

    I don't think this statement bodes well for a return of the original cast. That makes me think that the show will feature all new characters - or maybe one of the original characters and a bunch of new ones.

    As others have said, hopefully these web episodes will lead to more. Viva la Farscape!

    Did Farscape get dramatically better after the first couple of series? Everybody always carps on about how great it was, but I thought the series and a half that I saw was a total load of arse.

    Interesting. This could be good... or bad. I'd like to see the original cast return, but I have to agree that the original announcement sounds like either none or only one or two of the originals may return with an all new crew. Still, at least we're getting more.

    And, yeah, anyone know why the first season of Farscape isn't available on DVD or is it that it's just scarce and hard to find?

    The first season and a half or so are pretty much mediocre at best. It does get better from there.

    Season 1 is on dvd. It was released twice in two different formats. As a whole and then separate sets of 3. The newer separated versions were better though.

    Season 1 is pretty typical sci-fi until the very last five episodes. The first 17 episodes we're given a nice chance to get to know the characters. Then the last 5, you get hit with where the story is really going. Season two starts out kinda slow until you get to the "Look at the Princess" 3 parts and from there is just rockets on and continues through all of season 3. Season four's first half is kinda rocky, but once they wind up on Earth and Chricton really starts learning more about the wormhole technology from the Ancients it picks up again, leading to a helluva cliffhanger. The Peacekeeper Wars was okay, a nice cap to the series.

    I love Farscape. This is awesome news.
