I think all our Farscape discussions ended up on the old forum :(

Anyway... Just a heads up that Amazon has the complete series on sale this week. Its $49.99 for the DVD version and $69.99 for the Blu-Ray version.

I have the DVD version and there is fairly noticeably compression to fit the episodes onto fewer discs, (26 vs 38 as first released), but it also takes up about 1/4 of the shelf room and is packaged well. They used only 20 discs for the blu rays, so I'm thinking they just crammed the 26 disc versions onto fewer because blu ray holds more, but its possible the compression is better. The DVDs are very watchable, but for the extra 20 bucks I'd probably go for the blu rays if I didn't already own the DVDs. If you have the original release DVD's I'm thinking those probably have the best picture quality of anything we will get unless they release a "remastered" version for blu ray someday (I wouldn't hold your breath).
