Ninth Volume in the Popular Starburst Series

ADV Films is pleased to announce the ninth installment of its wildly successful Farscape: Starburst Edition series, with an expanded and updated volume that takes us through to the season finale of the third season in the classic sci-fi series. Farscape: Starburst Edition 3.3 will be available everywhere DVDs are sold on April 11.

Farscape is an adventure as broad and weird as the universe - full of strange creatures, bizarre twists, irreverent humor, raucous action, passion, and romance! Produced in Australia by The Jim Henson Company and Hallmark Entertainment, Farscape has been called "The Best Sci-Fi on TV," by TV Guide, and hailed as "TV's Best Space Series" by USA Today. Farscape also received the Saturn Award for Best Syndicated/Cable Series three years in a row (2001, 2002, 2003).

Who is John Crichton? An astronaut. Good-looking, all-American, nice guy lost somewhere in a crazy universe. A hero who's been probed, prodded, framed, frozen, and frelled by alien life forms more bizarre than anything in Captain Kirk's wildest dreams. Who is John Crichton (Ben Browder)? Did we mention he's in love with a beautiful ex-commando named Aeryn (Claudia Black)? Did we mention he's been cloned? Two Crichtons so identical even he can't tell who's the original. One Crichton gets the girl of his/her/their dreams. The other gets left behind. One Crichton dies. The other goes toe-to-toe against death itself, in the form of a sadistic military leader searching for a secret that will forever alter the balance of power in the universe. It's hidden deep in Crichton's impenetrable human subconscious, where even he can't find it. Toss in a dysfunctional crew of quarreling alien ex-cons onboard a bio-mechanoid ship with a neurotic Pilot and you've got a hint of the incredible Farscape universe. But only a hint.

Praised by TV Guide as one of the "25 Top Cult Shows Ever," Farscape is an adventure as broad and weird as the universe - full of strange creatures, bizarre twists, irreverent humor, raucous action, passion, and romance! Produced in Australia with the incredible talents of Jim Henson's Creature Shop, Farscape is the fantasy-scifi-drama-romance-comedy-adventure you will always remember!

The dream series of every sci-fi fan continues with the release of Farscape: The Starburst Edition 3.3. (SRP $24.98 DVD). Farscape: The Starburst Edition 3.3. is a DVD-only release including the final seven episodes of Farscape's exciting third season, complemented by extensive special features on four DVDs. Episodes in this collection: "Revenging Angel," "The Choice," "Fractures," "I-Yensch, You-Yensch," "Into The Lion's Den, Part I: Lambs To The Slaughter," "Into The Lion's Den, Part II: Wolf In Sheep's Clothing" and "Dog With Two Bones." Audio is presented in English 5.1 and stereo. Each episode is subtitled for the hearing impaired.

With almost six hours of the three-time Saturn Award-winning Farscape, this collection is one of the hottest entertainment bargains anywhere!

Farscape: The Starburst Edition 3.3 is loaded with all the extensive, behind-the-scenes special features sci-fi fans want. In fact, the fourth disc is exclusively devoted to extras! Join Executive Producer David Kemper for "Season 3: A Look Back." There are two cast interviews - Claudia Black (Aeryn), Anthony Simcoe (D'Argo). Four full-length audio commentaries enhance this edition. Two Commentaries for "The Choice" with actress: Claudia Black (Aeryn) and the filmmakers: Director Rowan Woods and Writer Justin Monjo. The episode "Into The Lion's Den, Part II: Wolf In Sheep's Clothing" has a new commentary with Writer/Series Creator Rockne S. O'Bannon and Executive Producer David Kemper. The season finale "Dog With Two Bones" also has a new commentary featuring Ben Browder (Crichton) and Claudia Black (Aeryn). Rounding out this packed collection are deleted scenes, the original Farscape TV promos, "Cool Farscape Facts" by Paul Simpson (author of Farscape: The Illustrated Companion), "Alien Encounters," an extensive production design gallery, updated character histories, and previews of other coming attractions from ADV Films. Farscape: Starburst Edition 3.3 is the definitive edition of this amazing sci-fi series for new and established fans alike!
