Product Description

Richard Dean Anderson. The SG-1 team explores new worlds and encounters powerful enemies in the hit sci-fi series based on the movie. 21 episodes on 5 DVDs. 1997-98/color/approx. 11 hrs/NR/widescreen.

Amazon.com

Hollywood's film archives overflow with the carcasses of dismal movies based on lame '60s and '70s television shows, a syndrome that shows no sign of abating. But here's evidence that the reverse effect, turning a movie into a TV series, can have surprisingly positive results. Indeed, based on the 21 episodes produced for the first season of Stargate SG-1, it could be argued that this show is significantly better than the 1994 feature it's derived from.

The central conceit of the original Stargate--the existence of an artificially created "wormhole" through which one can travel to different worlds light years away from Earth--was an intriguing one. In seizing on the obvious possibilities for expanding on that premise, series executive producers-writers Jonathan Glassner and Brad Wright have smartly retained some of the film's basic elements (its amalgam of myth and theoretical hokum, or the ongoing clash of wills between scientists and soldiers), while adding a variety of fresh ideas (including new characters, new locations, and a welcome dose of humor, much of it supplied by Richard Dean Anderson, MacGyver himself, who replaces Kurt Russell in the central role of Colonel Jack O'Neill). The result is a show with multidimensional heroes and villains and consistently compelling story lines (many of them introduced in the pilot and carried forward through subsequent episodes) balancing excellent special effects and production values. All this and full frontal nudity, too (at least in the aforementioned pilot). Who can resist?

The first season is spread out over five DVDs; the 100-minute pilot shares the first volume with two other episodes, while discs 2 to 5 contain anywhere from three to five shows each. Sound and visuals (in widescreen format) alike will take full advantage of any home system's capabilities. But aside from language and subtitle options, bonus features are limited to brief featurettes that play like commercials and provide little in the way of background information or insight (there are no features at all on the first disc). Then again, if you really want to know what that symbol on Teal'c's forehead means, or why the nasty, parasitic Goa'ulds look a lot like the fledgling stomach monsters in the Alien series, there is no doubt a Web site out there just for you. --Sam Graham

I fell in love with this series towards the end of Season 1, so I'm glad MGM decided to release this series on television. I can finally see the episodes I missed. This series is a great balence between action, science, and great storytelling. Richard Dean Anderson as O'Neil is a riot! Espically when he get's this blank look on his face after Daniel or Carter say something way over his head (Which happens a lot).
After seeing this set, there is something the buyer should know:
1. The series is shot in Canada, and to put it in a nice way, the cameras they used wern't exactly A+ equipment. That's why some scenes appear grainy. It's not the conversion to DVD, the grainyness was there on Showtime and when the show was syndicated on TV.
2. This show is presented in Dolby 2.0 Surround. To get the best experience, set your home theater to 2 Channel Dolby, and have the reciever send the two channels to both front and surround speakers. Some episodes of the series have some really neat surround effects if you listen carefully.
I put this series on par with X-Files, and Babylon 5, all great series in terms of storytelling.

This is a great series. And this boxed set covers the entire first season all in one fell swoop.
The writing for the episodes was excellent picking up on the threads that the movie Stargate had left off on in a logical manner. The transition between the movie and the series being nearly seamless with the return of the Goa'uld and the re-opening of the Stargate on Abydos and without any of those huge contraditions that so many tv series seem to have when based on movies.
And,I was immediately hooked on watching how the four characters, making up the team of SG-1, start out as strangers and then grow to be friends and fiercely loyal to one another.
The interplay between Michael Shanks as Daniel Jackson and Richard Dean Anderson as Colonel Jack O'Neill is worth the DVD's price alone. Michael Shanks shows us an earnest Daniel Jackson who still has that sense of childlike wonder despite the way life keeps knocking him down. And Richard Dean Anderson creates a Jack O'Neill who is strongly military but with a wicked sense of humor. Also, the added talents of Amanda Tapping (who plays Samantha Carter, an airforce captain and scientist) and Christopher Judge (Teal'c, a former first prime, a.k.a. head soldier, of the enemy) play off of these two in such a way that it makes a good balance.
I would highly recommend this series to anyone who likes strong character development.
Although I liked all the episodes (with the possible exception of Emancipation), I particularly liked: Cold Lazarus, Hathor, Fire & Water, Solitudes, There But The Grace of God, and Within The Serpent's Grasp.

Ten years after this series premiered, I am only now finally beginning to watch "Stargate SG-1." I had always liked the 1994 movie, but never really thought that it needed continuation, and beginning watching this season only after I promised a friend I would give it a chance. I was pleasantly surprised, to say the least. I have not seen any further "SG1" seasons yet, so forgive me if I don't know where stuff is going yet (I plan on starting Season Two soon).

The first episode is a direct sequel to the 1994 film. It turns out that Ra wasn't the only powerful alien out to enslave humanity, and another one (named Apophis) has arrived to kidnap humans to serve as hosts for this evil race (given the name of the Goa'uld). In the first episode, the Goa'uld kidnap loved ones of Jack O'Neill and Daniel Jackson from the first movie-- Jack's friend and Daniel's wife-- and possess them. The rest of the season concerns the "Stargate team" SG-1's attempts to track down Apophis so those two can rescue their loved ones, but of course, this being a TV series, this main plot is deviated from quite a bit (for better and worse). O'Neill and Jackson are joined on SG-1 by the brilliant Samantha Carter, and the alien Teal'c, a former Apophis servant who's betrayed his master to help the people of Earth.

Apparently this season has a bad reputation amongst "Stargate" fans who enjoy the better seasons to come, but I found this to be a very effective introduction. Since it's the first season, many episodes focus on developing the team, and make them more empathetic to the audience. For example, O'Neill has unfinished business with his dead son that haunts him (shown in "Cold Lazarus"), and Jackson continually laments the loss of his wife (most notably in "Thor's Hammer" and "Fire and Water").

"The Nox" voice over missing?
I know this is old but just found the post. I know I had a problem with it due to my surround sound system. I had it set to make it use all my speakers instead of the stereo the show was recorded in, due to this Apophis was redirected to come out my sub woofer which made it so you just basically... Read More

nudity?
Yes, there is one scene with nudity in the pilot episode. It originally aired on Showtime, not basic cable.

English subtitle?
Got the first season (Thinpack) today.
Sorry to say: Only French and Spanish subtitles on this one.
Can't believe they dropped the English subs.
Not really happy about that.

what happened with the pricing
They are still 19.99 at Walmart, I was just there today and noticed that and was very glad I didn't order season 2 from amazon. I don't know why they doubled the price, but I hope people realize they can still get them for 20 bucks.

Stupid question...
My *understanding* is that it's simply a repackaging. The discs should be the same, just in plastic cases that aren't as wide. Many shows--like Remington Steele--are even packaged with two discs in each of these 'slimpack' cases now. Saves a lot of space.
