Farscape Celebrates 10th Anniversary with DVD Megaset

"Farscape" fans will rejoice, as the award-winning series will commemorate its 10th anniversary with a deluxe DVD package of the beloved show. On November 17, 2009, the complete series, which ran from 1999-2003 on Sci-Fi, will be re-released in the "Farscape: The Complete Series Megaset". Featuring all 88 episodes on 25 discs, with original aspect ratios and 5.1 surround sound, the all-new Megaset delivers the venerated program to its legions of loyal fans and a new generation for the collectible price of $149.95. The deluxe box set will include over 15 hours of bonus material.

An imaginative fusion of live action, state-of-the-art puppetry, prosthetics and CGI, "Farscape," produced by The Jim Henson Company in association with RHI Entertainment, featured mind-boggling alien life forms, dazzling special effects, edge-of-your-seat thrills, irreverent humor and unforgettable characters - all brought to rich life by the creative minds at Jim Henson's Creature Shop.

You can pre-order your Farscape DVD Megaset at www.dhpdvd.com. Use code name "scapers" to get a 10% off the sale price of $109.89 — which comes to $98.90. Now that’s SUBSTANTIALLY less than what each season set used to cost back when they were first released. Considering that both the original releases and the Starburst releases are now out of print, this is the best way for new fans to get their own set. (I mean, you could search through eBay looking for used sets, too, but it will take a lot of your time to put together all four seasons worth of DVDs.)

And remember, this Megaset will have ALL the commentaries that the original sets had, plus the re-released Starburst set, AND…..they will also have the "Farscape Undressed" feature, which has never been available in North America.

Offer is good until August 31.
