As much as I love Farscape, I just can't justify £90 especially when I already have the series on blu-ray and am just waiting for a decent transfer of peacekeeper wars. At maybe half the price I'd consider it as its the best sci-fi tv show I've seen, but it'll probably sell out before there's a chance of a price cut.

Not my kind of TV show, but this looks like a great edition and the price isn't too bad if you actually consider what's included (32 discs is never going to be cheap) and how limited it is. I'd love them to do similar editions for other shows!

It's a nice set but it's an acquired series which a lot of people already own I think at half that about £50 so many more people would jump at it

Ditto here, the Peacekeeper Wars blu-ray is absolutely atrocious - the DVD version is far better, the blu-ray is a very bad upscale with 2.0 audio whereas the DVD had 5.1 audio

I wonder if the 32 disc count is for the dvd set, i think the current complete series on blu ray was 20 discs. Also would be nice to know if the included peacekeeper wars was the currently available disc or a new transfer.

I still have the original R2 complete DVD boxsets, which cost me about £50 per season. To be perfectly honest I'm quite happy with the PQ quality and have never bothered to upgrade to BD, even when the complete BD boxset has sold for as little as £25. My understanding, from what I have read in various reviews, is that's it's simply not worth double-dipping on this one.

If however they had managed a BD release sourced from the original, but regretably "lost", HD masters, then that's a different story.
