Last week we contacted ADV Films over concerns consumers have expressed regarding their Farscape: Starburst Edition releases. We've had some complaints that the DVD-18s (double-sided, dual-layer) being used would skip on occasion, or the picture breaks up (Universal has the same problem on many of their sets). ADV looked into the situation and told us that they've ceased using DVD-18s for their releases, including the Farscape sets. This will result in a change to the seventh "Starburst" release; instead of 2 DVD-18s you'll get 4 DVD-9s (single-sided, dual-layer). The packaging for the new sets will be about the same size as early Andromeda cases. We applaud ADV for listening to their consumers and making a change that solves the problem.
You can expect the 4 disc Farscape: Starburst Edition Vol 7 to be released on December 13; it'll retail for $24.98.
