Somehow I doubt it. It seems the fans of the original Farscape DVDs are so entrenched in their recollection about their special features that they constantly keep getting confused about the lack of special features on the Starburst Editions.

Yeah, a sarcasm detector. Now that's a useful invention...

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.
Clearly these earlier editions had special features. Come on, 11 discs??? Of course they must be loaded. It's the Starburst editions we're talking about here. And after four pages, we're no closer to an answer than we were on page one. The only thing we've nailed down so far is ho thye amd ehime dit it.

It's obvious to me that we really need a Special Feature detector! I vote that Mike Lowrey gets to use it first!

Hey, Mike! Be careful where you aim that thing! The Special Feature detector must be used wisely and with great restraint!

Sorry, the detector was just vibrating out of control there for a moment.

Got shipment notice of my Farscape Starburst Volume 3 on Thursday, so when I get it in a few days, maybe finally we can put this question about special features to rest. But then again, I wouldn't hold your breath...especially if all they mention is something about a dren...

Quoting myself here, I received Volume 3 in the mail on Monday...immediately checked the back for special features, and sadly, there's no mention of special features. However, there is mention about something called a "drenload of extras". I'm not an expert in Farscape speak, so I'm not sure what that translates to. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I think mine is lost in the mail. It has been 12 days. I emailed them b/c shipping states 5-10 days, and they said give it 15. Maybe this "drenload" is weighing the shipment down.

Yeah, I've heard a dren can sometimes weigh as much as a ton.

While viewing the new Volume 3, I see that one of the menu choices is "Special Features", but that conflicts with what the case says, so there's still confusion as to whether or not these are indeed special features, or just extras with a "special" label attached to them.

Hey guys,

I bought some of these Starburst things you were talking about, and the back of the package doesn't say anything about special features...only stuff like "Corn Syrup" and "Red #40" (whatever that means).
