While interesting, that's still nothing definitive on whether or not there's any special features.

Don't get that version - from what I've heard, there may be special features, but not in English.

I have good news on this issue! It just so happens I have Starburst vol 1 sitting in front of me as I type this. Now it's for a charity auction here at work, so I can't open it , but I can check out the case.

On the front we have Season One, blah, blah, blah, Farscape, Starburst Edition, blah, blah, blah. No stickers announcing special features or anything.

Moving on to the back. Let's see... "TV's most inventive sci-fi adventure"... Like a Varken out of Hezmana, blah, blah, blah, 7 episode on 2 double-sided duds, blah, blah, blah, A drenload of extras, blah, blah, blah, credits and such further down, legal text, dolby digital, CC, etc.

Well, that didn't help much. But there is two web sites listed! Maybe they'll have some answers. Looks like www.farscape.com and www.advfilms.com. Perhaps someone could do a little leg work here and report back?

Hmm...all that and still no mention of special features.

Now if I could just figure out what "drenload" means.

The truth is out there and soon someone, somewhere will confirm if there's special features.

Mike:

While you are looking up "drenload", I have been searching for "quid". Why can't the English call a buck a buck?

I finally ordered this last week. Blind buy. Hopefully the special features will be worth it.

So you've confirmed that there's indeed special features? Source?

I don't know, those English are a waskily bunch. Look up "pense" while you're at it.

For future reference, I'll be referring to dollars as "drakhs". Hey, why not? If the English can use a truncated word for a species of sea life, I can use a sci-fi word for dollar.

I just used Babelfish on the description of the UK 'extras' (it was written in Swahili). It came back with: ho thye amd ehime dit it.

That isn't English, is it?

No, but I bet that it has something to do with a drenload.

So Stanley Kubrick movies come with special features? Or just Sparticus? Or is there a new "special edition" Pepsi on the way?

What on earth do you consider 'special features'. For me its anything outside the actual feature. All of the R1 versions, Standard (11 keep cases), Season set (5 dual keep cases) and Starburst (3 keep case, two sided dvd) have 'Special Features' included. Commentaries on half of the shows. Makeup test, behind the scenes and such. The difference is that if you brought the first set they were over $20 each x11 (est $220), second group, the season box set (est $85) and the Starburst Vol 1,2 and 3 (est $45). The later issue, Starbust has the most features because they were created after the first group went for sale. Don't forget the 'PEACEKEEPER WARS' for about $15 to tie up the end.

Whatever, sounds like hearsay to me

This is all very confusing... are you saying that they're releasing the Special Features later, after the first group goes up for sale? And these features will be in 3 versions (11 keep cases, 5 dual keep cases, or 3 keep cases)? Seems like a strange way to release something. I'll probably wait it out.

All I know is that Kubrick must be rolling in his grave by now. Damn Pepsi!

Sure, but do the Starburst Editions come with a handy dandy sarcasm detector? Clearly the earlier editions did not.

If these rumors are true,i would probably lean towards the 5 dual keep case release of the special features.
I wish they would make some kind of announcement instead of keeping us all in the dark.

Spoiler:

I've heard the Starburst Edition do indeed, but it's pretty obvious that the older ones didn.'t

I didn't see it listed with the other features. Maybe it is just considered 'value added content.'

Hopefully it's a really good sarcasm detector. Sometimes sarcasm can be hard to detect. This thread, for instance, has some very subtle sarcasm that would be easy to miss without a really sensitive sarcasm detector.
