5.0 out of 5 stars One of my personal favorite seasons December 6, 2003
By Nielsen
I know this isn't everyone's opinion, but for me, each season gets better and better. Writers and actors get to know the characters and a story more when they've made over 100 episodes with them. (Episode 100 is included in this set, an episode where the writers just decide to mess around and have a good time)
Season 5 introduces some very key characters and situations:
--Colonol Frank Simmons
--Explanation of the ascended being ("Ascention" and "Meridian")
--The jaffa rebellion ("The Warrior")
--Further Russian entanglements including the fate of the Earth DHD ("48 Hours")
--The introduction of Anubis ("Last Stand," "Revelations")
--The fate of the Tollan ("Between Two Fires")
--The temperary departure of Michael Shanks ("Meridian")
--The method of Asguard reproduction ("Revelations")
--Jonas Quinn ("Meridian")
All of these situations play key in the epic saga of the Stargate universe, providing for plot variations and new ideas in later seasons. The new ideas are still there. The humor is still there. Over 100 episodes in, Stargate is still going strong in this collection.
I am looking forward to adding this 5th boxed set to my other four boxed sets.
I enjoyed Season 6 even better. Season 7 is still blowing my mind. Let's have those as boxed sets soon as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars SG-1 Season Five January 13, 2004
I think you're right, Selune, Jonas Quinn's first appearance was Season 5 in "Meridian". Jonas is unable to return to his own people after he discloses that Daniel became irradiated when he stopped a chain reaction that would have destroyed the planet. For those who liked Daniel, there is a featurette about him on this DVD set.
The video is just as good as Season Four, and seeing SG-1 in widescreen anamorphic format is a dream. The Dolby Digital 5.1 audio is great. During some of the fights, I really feel as if I'm sitting right in the crossfire!
"Wormhole Extreme!", which several have already mentioned is a tremendous episode, features cameo appearances by actual crew members as crew in the episode. If you're curious, here's the list:
David Sinclair, Prop master: Bill the assistant director
Hank Cohen, MGM executive: studio executive
Herbert Duncanson, stand-in for Christopher Judge: Doug Anderson\Greel the Robot
Jan Newman in make-up: make-up person
Joseph Mallozzi, supervising producer & writer: crew member asking about doughnuts
Martin Wood, director: NID man
Michael Greenburg & Brad Wright, executive producers: in final walkaway
N. John Smith, co-executive producer: second crew member asking about doughnut
Peter DeLuise: director
Rick Dean, chief lighting tech: crewman that doesn't like Teal'c food
Robert Cooper, executive producer & writer: the writer
Ron Wilkerson, story editor: in limo with Cohen
=>Commentary for each episode. Don't miss the one for "Wormhole Extreme!"
=>"Video Diaries" (3 diaries, about 10 minutes each) Three cast members, Amanda Tapping, Christopher Judge, & Michael Shanks, shot some footage for the DVDs in what they call "video diaries".

5.0 out of 5 stars Parker Lewis Can't Lose :) December 23, 2003
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I agree with previous reviews that certain aspects of this season dragged a bit. However, I can understand the trepidation with which this season was made and some of the stresses they may have been under. Whatever the case, Stargate remains one of the best programs on television. Even the worst episode of Stargate (and there aren't that many) beats anything else on TV at any given time.
One of the things I loved about this season was the introduction of Jonas (that was this season, right?). I loved him back on Parker Lewis Can't Lose and thought it was great that he was back on television. His part seems well scripted and the character has a wry humor that permeates each episode he is in. I love Daniel, but I love the character of Jonas, too. Not to mention, he's also easy on the eyes. ;)
If anything, this entire box set is worth it for Wormhole X-Treme. I love that episode so much. The ending "outtakes" are just hilarious!!! It's funny to see the Delouis (spelled?)brothers both goofing around. Like the line "but I'm getting paid real money, right?" or something like that. Priceless.
Stargate shows everyone that a science fiction show can be thought provoking and genuine in it's character development. It will always be a standard to which other sci-fi shows strive to meet, in my opinion.
Anyway, take a look and enjoy. Even if it isn't the best season, it's worth the price to get it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Season of Huge Changes October 30, 2003
By Jose
Wow! This Stargate Season really got to me. There are very few series that can risk so many changes (especially in one season) and keep the track of things without disappointments.
This season sees the departure of a mayor character, the death (final death... mmm, 99.9% sure...) of the mayor big baddie of previous seasons, the annihilation of a powerful ally, politics and shades of grey, the rising of the new big bad nemesis of the series (in a very intelligent way), a lot of character development, conclusions to several story arcs of the past, interesting revelations and more...
Perhaps what I most like about this season are the grate scripts (Brad Wright, Robert C. Cooper, Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie were awesome that year). After the grate cliff-hanger of Season 4, "Enemies" came to be one of the best season premieres I have ever had the pleasure to watch.
The directing style improved greatly (more visual language, more depth in the approach and very good storytelling). Episodes like "The Tomb" (grate suspense), "Threshold" (one of Tealc's best), "Between Two Fires", the awesome, huge and perhaps best two parter of the series "Summit" and "Last Stand", and the amazing Season Finalie "Revelations" (script, directing, acting... everything at its best) which was the first season finalie of the series with no cliff-hanger, make of this season one of Sci-Fi and Television's best.
I loved Anna-Louise Plowman (Osiris) in "Revelations", the introduction of Anubis, the way the System Lords were finally approached as a group, and the intelligent twists the season gave to the series.

difference between Stargate SG-1 Boxed Set and Stargate SG-1 (Thinpak)
About 2 inches. The box set is a slipcase with the old style clamshell cases and is about 3 inches wide. The slimpacks are less than an inch. I think the actual content is the same.
